You get an extra hour in bed tomorrow

So please use that time wisely!

(and dont forget to put your clocks back too!)

WTM Yes and I have already altered my main clocks and am going to bed early as well. For some reason I am tired as hell tonight. I wonder if the cold weather has anything to do with it? Thanks for the reminder anyway, I might well have forgotten. I seem to forget a lot of things these days.

Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out.

Repeat as necessary.

WTM. As long as I keep doing that I will still be alive I suppose.

No extra hour here. Russians have given up with faffing with the clocks twice year and is on permanent summertime now (as well as abolishing various timezones altogether)...that said, there appeared to be some confusion as the bill that introduced the changes was recalled recently. The government confirmed YESTERDAY that the clocks would not change!!

Didn't get the hour in bed - forgot to re-program the mutt!

I know what you mean. I forgot to reprogram my bladder!

I didn't get the extra hour either. In fact it will work the opposite way for me as today's football doesn't start until 11pm rather than 10pm and European Championship games are a nightmare altogether.

The annual Parliamentary utterances about GMT,BST and even DBST seem not to have been aired this time around............. As usual for my domain where the other half an obsessive gardener, insists on keeping some clocks as they are while she readjusts her days bit by bit.

We have a clock radio each side of the bed. A mite difficult when waking, to decide which way I'm lying before reading the clock. My side has changed itself of course, her side with ancient device will remain an hour fast until she tells me otherwise.

Good Morning everybody, Yes I put my clocks back but decided only to have a half hour extra in bed this morning and the other half tomorrow morning. In fact I might extend that ritual through the week until I am having a few extra hours kip. It's great when you're retired and don't have to conform.

"as well as abolishing various timezones altogether"

How does that work in a country that size?

Does Vladivostok keep Moscow time?
