Clocks back, tonight, in the DUK.

Not that our cats will respect that...

No more summertime. But an extra hour in bed.

But for our Brazilian in laws and Leigh, theirs is just starting!

I feel sorry for the shift workers who need to work an hour for nothing.

I never thought of that. Mind you, if they stay in the job, they get it back in the spring.

Shifting rotas often mean they don't. Doctors and nurses are an example of folk who lose out but my dad often did as well as an air traffic controller.

Ours started about three weeks ago. All I have to do now is to try and stop the curtains fading with the extra hour of daylight. ;)

Happened, to me, when I drove trains. We got paid for the extra hour, though.

It always takes me six months to get used to it...

It takes me 7!

I always feel the benefit of the extra hour the next day rather than the day itself.

I actually got our cooker done easily, for once...

I usually just ignore most of our clocks. If I'm an hour late for something, so be it. As Mary's graphic shows, mobile phones and computers do it by magic, and they're usually the devices I use for temporal management anyway.

It's my car that gives me grief. I don' t bother with the cooker.
