    Changing clocks

    I found it so hard to crawl out of bed in the dark this morning... I know I went to bed an hour early, but I really did not want to get up this morning.

    Also, it's astonishing how many families seem to have been unable to adjust their clocks to get into school at the right time this morning

    I always change the clocks before I go to bed and consider that I am going to bed at THAT time. I don't have a problem with it and got up fine this morning. It was light by the time I went out to walk the dog at 6.30 anyway.
    I don't get jetlag either - maybe it's a metabolism thing?

    I think it's getting up in the dark that threw me. I prefer the lighter mornings.

    I forgot to change the clocks but got up and hour earlier thanks to my phone automatically altering it's setting and not realising it does this(first new phone in about 8 years)

    Of course the fact that my girlfriend had altered some of the clocks and my hangover made for a confusing few minutes of not knowing what the time really was

    My other half was there for both qualifying and the race. He's working in Sydney and went to Melbourne for the weekend.

    I forgot about the change too, don't have any clocks in apartment - just phones and computers that do it automatically. Got in the car and set off, then looked at the clock and thought bugger I'm an hour early!

    I had the same problem - however getting an alarm clock that increases the light level before going off makes a difference

    Is it wrong that I haven't changed the clock in the IT room that the office is off just to mess with the kids minds?!
