Re: Clocks go back Saturday 24th/Sunday 25th October 2015

searched for 'daylight' instead of 'summer time' before posting, and missed this one.

Ah goody, the clock in the car will show the correct time again for a few months.

Re: Clocks go back Saturday 24th/Sunday 25th October 2015

I've just changed all my manual clocks. I decided I want an hour more life not an hour more sleep (don't get me wrong I love sleeping but I can do that any time).

I just wanna have one more hour of sleep. Is that much to ask for? However, if you consider a longer life span, then extraterrestrial relocation services can make a miracle.

I don't want a longer life, I wanna make the most of the hour that was stolen from me in spring as I already balanced out the lack of sleep from back then.
