Don't forget your clocks!

Okay, so clocks go back - how far? ;) 

I seem to be living in a world where the clock minute hand isn't needed at the moment!

Look on the bright side, everyone will spend a whole hour less indoors.

They go back minus one hour.

 

(For the arithmetically challenged, that means forward one hour).

I vote for putting the clocks forward 6 months.

I’ll go for 12 months, a vaccine will be available and summer will be coming up.  Welcome to 2021, let’s just forget 2020.

As I always reply (twice a year) to these posts, I won't be doing anything to my clocks.  But at least from tomorrow Mrs Mac and I won't be living in different time zones.

I guess I might care what time it is when the lockdown is lifted, at the moment it's just meal time and bed time when I'm hungry or tired respectively!

I think I've got three clocks now, but I fancied a matching set, New York, Paris, London

Cheer up, it may never happen [not very appropriate sorry]

We will change our clocks tonight. Not sure it will make a blind bit of difference though.

Life is normally quite regimented and the diary somewhat overstuffed so I'm enjoying some down time!

 

Although I'd rather there wasn't a pandemic of course, but I'm making the most of it - the joy of reading a book or listening to music without clock watching :)

Del Boy, yes a great characature, not so many around these days.

First time I went to London for a job interview [age 21], I arrived at 06.00, having driven through the night in my mini 224JVD A very kind taxi driver led me to Whitehall, great days, real people.

Don't you look forward to lovely light evenings? O.K., it's not yet the time of year for drinks, picnics and barbecues by the river, but it soon will be.

Athy, if only.

Rule of thumb:

Six days to adjust

Six weeks to run the experiment  keep status quo or turn the screw

Sixteen weeks to determine results.

Indeed. We are approaching the season to not have kiddies easter egg hunts and easter holidays. Then we will enjoy the season to not have barbecues and not go boating. Just look forward to the warm evenings not sitting in the pub garden and sunny afternoons not watching cricket. Think of the steam rallies and country shows we can all not go to. I'm looking forward to not going to an airshow or two and not taking my granddaughter camping. Don't you love the summer.

For some reason, Freesat tv listing webpage has gone forward  2 hours, and I can’t see how to set it to the correct time. Luckily it really doesn’t matter.

Yup, that's the way to think of it.  Find the upside to the situation and take advantage of it.  If every day is a drudge it is going to wear you down but if you can find the good things you like about the situation you will come through it in a good state.

Eh? How does this relate to my post which you have quoted?

I shall miss steam rallies etc, yes - but I was anticipating what we COULD, not couldn't, do.

Athy is in the enviable position of having a secluded garden fronting the river.   I don't begrudge him it in the least, but not all are so fortunate.

Indeed - I have mentioned in another thread that staying at home must be tedious if "home" is a bed-sitting room.

But yes, as said garden catches the afternoon and evening sunshine, using it more as the weather gets warmer is something to look forward to.
