That’s how the old saying goes.

Judging by some of the weather we’ve been having, you’d be forgiven for being a little confused over what time of year it is at all at all.

  • Sunrise and sunset will be an HOUR LATER from tomorrow.

The clocks go back on 29 October.

But let’s not think about that just yet, right?
