There was also the semi-annual ritual of adjusting all the clocks. And there are so many of them. To whit:
- two alarm clocks (digital)
- one kitchen clock (analogue)
- one cooker clock/timer (analogue)
- one clock in the conservatory (analogue)
- mobile phone
- Psion hand held computer
- video recorder
- iPod (Unless that's reset itself. *Looks* No, it hasn't. *Re-sets time*)
- two computers (at least they adjust themselves and only ask me to check that they've done it right)
- one car clock (again the one in my current car is self-regulating, as long as I switch on the radio, it resets itself)
- the central heating timer
- the one that I manage to overlook for a week or two and finally discover is wrong.
Of course that's the easy part. My body takes longer to re-set. I'm travelling to the States for the first time later this year and I really don't know how I'll cope with jet lag when the 1 hour difference of sumemer time confuses my body for weeks.
