Clocks go back tonight.

Don-1931 profile image

We're at that time of the year again

When we gain another hour.

There's talk that this might stop next year

By the gentlemen in power.

All it means for me though,

For laziness is my blight,

That all the clocks in my house

Will once again be right.

Love it. I have the problem with the clock in my car. For six months I shall have to do a mental adjustment but I can’t remember which way to adjust it. Early? Late? Zebra of little brain....

Just leave it be. For six months of the year you'll be an hour early for appointments so take a book with you, not a problem. ;-)

Spring forward, and (borrowing a word from American Dictionary), Fall (Autumn) back. I learnt that not so long ago, as I never could remember either.

Same here with the clocks 😄

Every year for the past several years I think there’s been this debate about whether this will be the last time (isn’t that a Rolling Stones song?) the clocks are changed. I don’t think anyone wants it. We shall see...

Brilliant Don! I’ve given up with the microwave clock and messed up our bedroom clock so have to add an hour to get the right time. Confused? You and me both! Xxxx

It surprises me that my central heating timer does it itself.

Thanks for the reminder, Don.

The clock on the oven is the one I struggle with and I've given up on the car one. Good to hear I'm not the only one!

Have a good weekend and enjoy the extra hour!


Ha ha apart from the fact I hate the long dark nights (really do) my granddaughter sees to my car clock for me 😀Xxx

It bothers me not to gain an hour

When instead of four the pain wakes me at three,

An earlier hour to hope and see

If the analgesia works today for me,

If not an extra hour of pain for free!

Thanks for the reminder. Don. 👍

Morroco have decided not to change their Clocks........Hmmm,

Some US States don't change their clocks. Arizona, Hawaii and... a third one I think. They manage just fine. It wouldn't be too complicated for the UK to stick to one time and not keep changing it. I didn't know Morocco has decided to stop changing time. I think the "daylight saving" started in one or other war but now it doesn't really achieve much except very dark very early evenings.

During WW2 it was two hours.

Fascinating thanks Don, even though I somehow almost reported you instead of clicking on the link. I learn something new every day here. I wondered how it is that some time zones have a half hour difference. I didn't know it used to be a 2 hour difference in the UK. Dark mornings are problematic but so are the dark evenings. Whichever end of the day has the darkness is problematic but somehow to me the evening feels worse because it makes the night unbearably long.

A bit worrying the article had to explain the UK was at war with Germany in 1916 though.

Your right the night times from about 4pm it just seems a long time evening. I often take a flask of tea and couple of biscuits with a hot water bottle. Tv on in the bedroom while using My tablet at least snuggled up in bed turn the heating down to save money. Hubby only in the next room on his computer if I need help. The cats come and join me snuggling up trying to find My hot water bottle. Keeps me warm and mask near by if needed.

Can you imagine what was it was like during WW2 with the black-out in force as well. I get great pleasure going into town after dark even now, after all those years, enjoying the street lights and brightly lit shop windows. The Christmas lights knock me out as do Blackpool illuminations. :-)

I can’t imagine. Or rationing. And bombs falling from the sky all around. I know there are some pretty awful places to be in the world just now but I am blessed to live in peace and freedom, and no food rationing. 🍪🍫🍿🍩🎂🍰🍦🥧🍮🍨🍧🍕🍟🍔🌭🥪🧀🥐🥨🥞🥖☕️

Everything seems to have a clock on it these days! I think the ipad corrects itself, is that right? Can't remember changing it. Love Iris x

Yes it does, thankfully, or I’d have no idea what time it is 😄

I wouldn't mind if they could put the calender back a few years. :-)

Sunday night clocks go back, 😡😡

Should of been a poet lol 😂

My thoughts exactly. I'd much rather the time stays exactly where it is and keep the daylight at the other end of the day grrrr

Fantastic! X

I am used to the hour difference every day, My family are 1 hour ahead of us, so we message each other at the Said time of each Country, Not too Early or too late. We are all in a Time Zone.....Our International Friends here are also on different Times, from 9 hours etc. xxx

It’s been an exhausting day, I’ve now got three different time zones in my house, I feel like I’ve travelled half way round the world just going from one room to the next 😁

In Montreal , Quebec we fall back next week. Thx for the reminder
