winters here

The solstice is past and I've declared it winter. Aside from the increasingly dark nights, our infestation of daddy long legs and the howling gales outside - the main indicators are the return of my vests (which tuck into the pants - no thongs here!) and polo necks. Brrrr - it was only a few weeks ago that we were swimming in the sea...Its scary how quickly the seasons can change.
The last glut of tourists (all 5 of them) have hit the island with the advent of the Glasgow bank holiday weekend.
Soon the ferry will be on the winter timetable and then its back to sleepy sunday afternoons.
How do other islanders cope with the long winter nights? Inspiration needed!
Yours thinking of hibernation....
