Don't forget clock's go forward tonight so one hour's less sleep  :/

    I've never been able to get my head round this concept.  I do understand the notion of an hour's less sleep if you work on Sunday and need to be up in time, fair enough. 
    But if you don't, why not put the clocks forward when you get up on Sunday?  Same amount of sleep, but when you get up at, say, 09.00, it's actually 10.00.  Easier to adjust....by the time the clocks say ' 23.00' or whatever, you've had all day to accustom yourself.  You just think 'Heck, is it 23.00 already?'
    Am I missing something?  Don't answer that.  Unless you really need to. 😉

    Quite agree.  I sleep till I wake up and get up after OH has brought me coffee and then do whatever needs doing.   What will confuse me for a while is not feeling quite hungry at "dinner" time and as I'm the cook, that can mean a late dinner for a week or 3.

    I always change the clocks when l get up on the Sunday morning, as Muddle Up says it makes things less painful .

    Apparently when it was introduced in Australia, there were complaints that the extra daylight would fade the curtains and confuse the cattle. Anyway, that's what an Australian told me and I'm a gullible type😊

    Apparently it's under debate in Europe to ditch this nonsense by October 2021. I don't know what is to debate or why it takes so long to not adjust a clock but it can't happen soon enough IMO.

    As a morning person who wakes early and waits to get up, I think we should move the clocks forward at least two hours😊

    I agree with @Muddle-Up, I think. I find the worst bit is Monday morning alarm clock, as that is the exact moment when you notice the hour you ‘lost’. 
    When I used to work nights, we would relish the Spring hour less, but curse at the Autumn extra hour - partly as we were paid the same for both!

    That's a con. My OH was a fireman. They had to work the extra hour for nothing but wouldn't necessarily be on shift when the clocks went back again.

    Yep. NHS here. 
    We used to have a longer ‘lunch’ break on the long night and bring treats and bakes in,  but it’s too busy these days.
