The problems of being too prepared became apparent this morning.
Hopefully you remembered that as British Summertime officially started this morning - now that’s a joke! - all of our clocks had to “Spring forward” by one hour. Being the conscientious chap that I am, naturally I remembered too.
The problem is, seldom a year goes by when the clocks change without some sort of time related incident. This year was no exception! You know I love my gadgets and technology. You may also know that I was recently able to upgrade my mobile phone for a lovely ‘gadgety’ Nokia N95 . So, before going to sleep last night, and setting my alarm for 8 this morning,
I dutifully added 1 hour to my phone’s time. Clever??!! No, not really! The phone is so gadgety that it knew BST had begun so added another hour as I slept!
I wasn’t quite such a fan of the gadgets when my alarm went off an hour early on a Sunday morning!
