Early or just right?

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

I woke up early this morning. Well, I did according to the clock, but not according to the light outside and my body clock. It was 6.15am by the clock, but because last night the clocks went back an hour as we changed from British Summer Time to Greenwich Mean Time, it was really 7.15am to me.

Hence a dilemma. Do I try to go back to sleep again, and make the most of the ‘extra hour in bed’ that everyone says we get when the clocks go back, or do I get up because it’s my usual time to wake up?

I decided to get up. So instead of that ‘extra hour in bed’ I had an extra hour in my morning, which I found useful.

It takes me about a week to get used to the change. For the next few days I’ll be looking at the clock and thinking to myself, yes the clock says it’s that time, but it’s really…..!

Now that the clocks have changed, it’ll be dark when I leave work, but I don’t mind that because it reminds me that my birthday isn’t too far away.
