    Setting my alarm for the equivalent of 4.45 ... bleah. Not only the clocks going forward, but early than usual scheduled start for work .... and the trains aren't running in my area this weekend.

    Standing in the rain waiting for the 185, with my mind set on the hash browns and cuppa waiting for me at the end of the route

    Victoria line is down which is a nause; our trip home will thankfully not take the 3 hours 49 minutes that thetrainline app is predicting though, thanks to some nifty planning from us. I had a full English at a premier inn. It was very tasty. Great beds too.

    Welcome to the past, guys. I did this weeks ago.


    Wait, does this mean when international break is over, soccer matches will go back to being at 7:45AM? Damn it. I was really enjoying that extra hour of Saturday morning sleep.

    I started reading this thread and panicked that I forgot to set the clocks back, but then realized here in the US this happened two weeks ago.
