Time changes

I have an early morning communion this morning. Secure in the knowledge that we get an extra hour I didn't set any alarms but I have been awake for hours!
Checking the clocks to make sure that I have the right time I find that all the electronic devices have done it all on their own!
In the old days when I lived in a house full of mechanical , chiming clocks it was a real test after the first David died to keep them all tickling and chiming!
Now they are mostly silent...three house moves was not good for them.
I have yet to check my Apple Watch and got my old Longines out, to find last night that it had not been moved to summer time anyway!
Time is an odd concept...when I cruise, the ships time goes backwards and forwards to match the country we are in...this can be confusing at times...
The best thing about waking at four is hearing what's on the radio on Radio four...it's definitely worth listening to!
Mark Mardell and Glenda Jackson kept me happily awake this morning..
Hearing various views on loneliness I was able to reflect that although I am alone in any normal sense of the word I am not lonely...
This is I think a choice...like happiness. I enjoy my quietness which gives me time to read, write and inwardly digest.....
My relationship with God is bumpy at times but He is always there...to shout at occasionally. But there! Thank you God.

  1. For some reason, my new laptop refuses to keep time and didn't go back with the change of time. I checked the settings, and it should have gone over automatically - but there has been two large software upgrades in a week, so it might be a gremlin in one of them.

    I reported it to microsoft and await an answer.

  2. Twice a year I change the downstairs clocks before I go to bed (whatever the time may be) and in the morning do the upstairs ones.
    I take no notice whatever of the 1 hour more, or one hour less and never change my watch so for half the year it is right, and the other half it is an hour out.
    Eccentric? possibly, but it works for me.
