We discovered that half the day had gone when we woke this morning. 8.45 am. We NEVER sleep that late but we did this morning. The days are long as the evenings are bright so you just keep going until you realise that its 11pm and its finally getting dark and its time to sleep while you're wondering why you can't keep your eyes open.
