It's always dark by 9:10pm here - you and your crazy northern latitudes! But yes, I have noticed the nights are drawing in and I am gald to see it. My favourite time of year approaches

Sunset here's never after around 8.45pm. It's around 8.15 at the moment.

We're about the same, maybe slightly later. My wife visited me in mid-summer once, she couldn't get used to it still being light at 10:30pm, and sunrise at 4am

The sun shining in through the window at 4am is something I do not miss - 6.30's about the earliest it gets light here, which is much more civilised.

I used to like the early sunrises back when I was 18-20ish when I'd be walking home from my mate's house after a piss-up and I could sit by the sea front and watch the sun come up while having a smoke. Very peaceful and I was the arty type who liked all that stuff

Now, I like it dark at 4, but as a photographer I do miss the extra couple of hours of daylight in the summer sometimes, especially this time of year when it is cooler.

Trying to have a serious meeting with the person in charge of where I volunteer, when she has the exact look and demeanor of 'Chief'.
