    I don't know about you lot but I find it amazing that despite changing the clock back or forward twice a year for over 50 years we still have to work out if it is forward or backward each time we do it!!!! Anyone else got the same problem?!! :wasntme:

    Isn't it two hours back, with it being a leap year?
    Fall forward then spring back.
    Not forgetting summer double time, obviously.

    No, quite simple! You get another hour in October when they go back, and an hour less in March when they go forward...

    I had you down as chief suspect - all that whizzing around the earth you astronauts do; arriving before you set off & all that. You must have got an extra day or two by now.

    I am still looking for the clocks to change and now cannot remember which ones I did, or even where they all are. The one on the van radio stays where it was as I cannot use it as a radio let alone fine the menu for clock changing, the one on the dashboard has no visible means of change and is different to that in the owners manual so that always reads summer time where it has always been as the previous owner only used it in summer.
