You need to do what I do and that is to pretend it's 2am when you go to bed.
And lets face it, if you don't tell anyone, I won't tell either.

Also staying on a serious note, for as long as I can remember,I can never remember if it's forward or backwards, but then the other day I heard it being said as Spring & Fall, well as I tend to fall backwards at the end of a session I think now I will be able to remember which way the clocks are altered without having to check with other people first, although I have to say the sooner we do away with this nonsense the better.

Re: clocks forward

This is going to be a real mixed Sunday.
Everything must be worked around watching the Grand Prix live. That means cooking Sunday dinner for evening or lunchtime depending on race starting time.
I've a funeral to go to at 11am and Quiz-night for 8pm.

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!!

Re: clocks forward

For generations my family have refused to comply with this ungodly action. We do put our clocks back in Winter but never forward.

Anyway each to their own and Happy Christmas for Wednesday.

In the 17th century British English used both "Autumn" and "Fall" for the season before winter. It was only after this that our language was Frenchified to make the Autumn word more popular. The same with words ending with -ize and -ization. The zeds got replaced with esses under French influence - but not in the Oxford English Dictionary ... or by me.
