One of the twice a year rituals I really dislike are putting the clocks forward in the spring and putting them back in the Autumn. We have a lot of clocks! I have never understood why we can’t have a time zone and leave it alone; I’ve heard the arguments that it is,supposedly, to please/help the farmers in Scotland, and else where, but please what on earth has that to do with the rest of us. Surely, for farmers et al, it’s just a matter of going to bed earlier/getting up earlier which need not effect the rest of us. By putting the clocks back we make the evenings darker a lot earlier……..why do we want to do that?
Next year the clocks go forward on the 31st March
They go back on the 27th October
In 2014 they go forward on the 30th March and back on the 26th October.
BUT JUST TO REMIND YOU THIS YEAR THEY GO BACK ON 28TH OCTOBER
