Remind me again, why we change the clocks………?
I thought I had myself all organised this year, as I usually do…..….I changed my manual clocks on the Saturday evening – putting them forward an hour – but couldn’t remember what would happen to my iPad, radio controlled clock and mobile so left those…….
Obviously when I woke up the next morning, the changing clocks didn’t enter my head, but I knew the heating hadn’t come on…..😳…..I looked at my clock and it was much later than normal………I then remembered about the clocks changing.
However, I didn’t know whether things had automatically happened on the techy stuff, so I wondered about the house trying to work out the correct time – and more importantly, what had happened to the heating!
I looked at the heating controls and it did dawn on me that I hadn’t done anything to the heating settings. The problem was, I couldn’t work out what I needed to do. Bizarrely, I couldn’t settle on whether I had to change all the settings ‘or do something else’….I wondered round the house talking the process through with myself but couldn’t work out what to do.
In the end I had to write the problem down on paper…..
‘Heating not come on’
‘What do I need to do’?
I then made a cuppa, which was obviously what my brain needed, as it was then that the answer popped into my head.
CHANGE THE CLOCK ON THE HEATING….😳🙄……..of course…..
Something so simple caused so much confusion. Wasn’t there some talk of doing away with changing the clocks? Can I join that group discussion please as I’m sure I’ll go through that whole process again in the autumn.
And there was me feeling smug at having remembered to change all the clocks…….
Remind me again, why DO we change the clocks………?
