    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.

    I was hoping for a good night's sleep to see me through losing the hour but no such luck. :|
