Dammit but it’s half five already!
Or maybe it’s half four?
This is the time of year when I get all confused with different clocks showing different times. Even worse, I have to dig out the instructions once more to reset my watch. God be with the days when I just popped out the winder and wound the hands around. Now I have to find the manual and refresh my fucking programming skills!
It’s been a rough day so far. I had to sort out al the medications for the pair of us for the coming week which is more than a mighty pain in the hole. It used to be relatively simple until my “event” and now I have two sackfuls of tablets to work through. Herself is still annoyed that I now have more pills than her.
Then there was a grocery delivery which was far bigger than normal as our stock room was getting low in a lot of items. And I was getting low on the whiskey. At least that’s now sorted and everything packed away in two freezers, the fridge, several cupboards and the larder.
Then we had visitors which kind of delayed further all those things I had intended to do today.
Now I have to do another on-line shop for some health essentials that I keep forgetting to order.
Dammit! It’s now a quarter to six and still not a child in the house washed.
Or is it a quarter to five?
I think I’ll go back to bed, get up and start the day all over again.
Fall back and Spring ahead. It's that time of year that Ireland is closer to the USA by an hour than say Paris which is an hour off Dublin time anyways. I think that make sense.
Ireland has moved closer to the US of A? Good grief! It's no wonder I'm feeling disorientated.
It could be the fact you're closer to Canada by an hour.
Have you reset the car clock yet?
Not yet. I did RTFM though so I know how to do it [I think]. Or maybe it has adjusted itself automatically? It seems to claim to know everything…
The clock in my last car, a Citroen, was permanently set to GMT because the procedure for setting it was so convoluted I just couldn't be bothered.
Ours is next Sunday at 2:00 AM (stupid time to do it) which means we set our clocks back before bed on Saturday. It's long past time "they" pick one time and stick with it, All the reasons for the time change in the first place are long obsolete.
And now the cats will be waking us up to be fed an hour earlier since they're the only ones on the premises that have sense enough to keep the same time all year around.
