Re: clocks forward

I used to HATE having to stay awake until 2 am to change the clocks!!
I now tell all my friends that I still do BUT actually change them at 11am and go to bed.
I really feel bad about it and have a tremendous guilt trip but I dont think they will find out!
If they did report me to the authorities I would be gutted so I leave the light on until 2 am so it looks as if I was awake and a timer switch turns it off at 2.05 am.
An alternative is to set the alarm for 2 am and change them then but if you turn it off using the doze button, by the time you awake, its too late!!
Twice a year I have this mental trauma and I see no perfect solution.
Life is very difficult if you take all these changes seriously.
When I put the clock forward an hour,sometimes I put it forward by 1 hour AND A MINUTE by mistake.
That means that the next six months of my life are out of sync and I have medication for this.
Life is so difficult sometimes and the therapy costs an absolute fortune,particularly if I am a minute late because he charges me for delaying him!!
I cant cope with all this changing clocks at my time of life.
Life should get easier with age but it doesnt and now I am all behind
MMMMMMMMWWWWWAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Now you tell me I'm going to lose a whole hour!!

One thing's pretty much certain. I think the office might remain closed!!
Oh Oh, if you are going to a funeral at 11 a.m. then you are going to miss the GP, which is at 11 a.m. in Turkey
