Re: Summer Time is Coming !!

Are there any car clocks that automatically change for BST/GMT?

Re: Summer Time is Coming !!

Does anyone actually stay up. or put the alarm on, so they can change the clock(s) at 0100?  not me... I do it before I go to bed....  (and change the clocks ! ! ) but not at the same time.. Embarrassed .. oops... this is getting complicated.... better shut up !  Lips are sealed

Re: Summer Time is Coming !!

Nah - only 2 clocks I think to change (Oven and Kitchen).  My watch & both alarm clocks in the bedroom update automatically.  SWMBO will have to do her watch though!
Final task is to remember how to do the car clock!

This is the easy change - much more time consuming to turn everything back in the autumn.

I don't stay up, but on occasions I am already up at such times. I need to set reminders either way. I once went a whole week without having any idea that the clocks had changed!

Re: Summer Time is Coming !!

I checked with my father one year if he had changed his clocks and he said he had.  When i checked he had gone the wrong way and was 2 hours adrift Embarrassed
