No I have a calendar and diary to remind me but most of all I can’t wait for summer so I’ll look for it anyway.

Thankfully I don't caught out. Most clocks these days update for you automatically. Which is a bonus

I wonder if there is ever a problem with car park clocks on the ticket machines ?

Imagine if some failed to adjust the hour , the chaos it would cause concerning fines for possibly overstaying , depending on going forward or backwards , you might get an extra hour

I always get caught out in the kitchen as I tend to start cooking in the evening by looking at the kitchen clock.I can’t safely reach the clock and I have to wait for my husband to change it and he sometimes forgets! The cooker clock is never right due to power cuts where we live.Must get round to changing it.

Nope, kitchen clock automatically updates when it changes and so does my phone

For me the fact that my phone changes the time is what confuses me

I do remember about clocks changing overnight but do forget when I wake up at first.

And then change if not changed automatically

I have never been caught out home but was on a cruise last year and the clocks kept changing. So many people missed breakfast. The captain should have put it over the tannoy. Instead it was written in tiny writing in the daily magazine.

I never forget. A significant day to look out for ....more light in the evening. Should also leave them forward and not put them back in October.

No, because it is always changes on a Sunday morning. I just wake up as usual and use the TV to remind me to change the clocks and oven timer.
