That Extra Hour

As the clocks go back this weekend, we want to know your thoughts...

That Extra Hour

BEFORE you even think about turning up for a date, work, the footy, or a Sunday roast, this weekend, an hour early, just don’t, don’t do it. THE CLOCKS ARE GOING BACK. At 2am this Sunday 30 October, British summer officially ends as we tentatively step through the dark doorway to what will soon be winter. It’s not all bad news, however – we all get an hour extra in bed – so if you’re debating whether to go out to a Halloween party on Saturday night, but have a date with you boyfriend/girlfriend’s parents the next day, then bloody well do it.

What will you do with that extra hour?

Off to Oxford to see my Auntie, that Halloween party Saturday night I wasn't going to attend is definitely feasible now with the extra stint in bed.

Seems like a good reason to stay out an extra hour – drinking.

As a clueless student who genuinely hadn't clicked the clocks change this weekend (I always thought you had to be a complete idiot to not realise they were changing - but clearly not), I am far too excited about this. Not because it means I can have an extra hour at a party, but for the rather more mundane fact that it gives me one extra hour between my 2am shift ending and my 10:30am shift starting. It's the little things in life that are the most exciting, right?

Catherine, I totally hear you. Even after reading this, and being reminded multiple times by family members, I'm sure I will still forget come Monday and be stood alone in the office wondering where everyone else is x

i'd like to do so many things but i'll probably spend it on that night out i can't afford, that i'm 'not' going to x

i like rhys idea, but that extra hour in bed will seem very nice indeed...

does anyone think willow is a bit of a bore?

Well an extra hour on a Friday night is certainly not needed but welcomed with open arms and a major hangover to nurse on Saturday

Hello, nobody actually gets and extra hour...it just screw everyone up twice a year and makes the day seem shorter..Do the farmers still feel this is an necessity?

An extra hour at a halloween party? I cannot think of anything worse. Every year an orgy of idiots descend upon city centres around the UK dressed as the Joker (if he had 18 and wrestling with late puberty). I would preffer to spend my evening enthusiastically masturbating with a piece of sandpaper than spend an extra minute, let alone an hour at one of these 'themed nights'. Truly the stuff of nightmares.
