The Magic of Daylight Saving Time
What do you normally do with your extra hour in Autumn when the clocks go back? Do you savour the hour on Saturday evening or on Sunday morning?
See, me, I’m a Saturday evening kind of girl. I like to take that extra hour the night before because I don’t really see how it works in my favour the following day. I have kids, and even if I was a fan of lie-ins, I wouldn’t be able to do that for very long. Besides, I go to worship on Sunday mornings. I’m up early anyway.
On Saturday evenings before the clocks go back my husband and I gleefully go around the house changing all the time pieces. We do this just after 11 p.m (even though the change doesn’t officially come into effect until 2 a.m) because somehow, this gives us a false impression that we’ve cheated time in some bizarre way.
For the next two days or so he – my husband – will be saying, ‘but your body thinks it’s an hour earlier so we should do this or that.’ I don’t think of it in that way at all. Do you? Once Saturday night is gone, the magic is gone for me.
I’m already planning what to do with my extra hour tonight. I’m going to make sure it does not involve anything with a laptop perched on my lap. There will be no Facebook, no Twitter, no StumbleUpon, no Blogging.
When you see me next, I would’ve had a leisurely extra hour doing something just for me. How about you?
And how do you remember if the clocks go backward or forward? Someone (an American) once told me this and it stuck; ‘Spring – forward. Fall (Autumn) – backward.’ Easy, right?
