Spring forward, fall back, apparently. Except we don't really use the word "fall" to describe times seasonal which means it should really be "spring forward, autumn back" but that makes no sense so maybe we should just avoid the phrase altogether.

Yes, it's that time of year where the clocks change and you wake up on a Sunday feeling robbed and cheated and just that little bit closer to Monday than you really hoped to be. I mean, OK, all I was going to do with that hour was sleep probably but I like sleeping. I've been doing it for years and I've really got my technique down pat now. The snoring, the drooling, the taking up of the whole bed in a diagonal fashion - I've mastered the lot (no, I don't understand why I'm still single, either).

I mean it's conceivable that I may have used that time for some other purpose but, in all honesty, that would probably only have been sitting around in my pants and eating packets of crisps (I mean, with this level of classy behaviour, surely I should have been snapped up years ago?)

So, in conclusion then, can whoever stole my hour please return it? If you're worried about repercussions then simply leave it anonymously on the doorstep and we'll take the matter no further. (Also, yes, ladies, I am available.)

I hate the spring forward one. Who the hell thinks they can just take an hour away from me? Pah.
Also, I sleep diagonally across the bed too. Whether there's someone else in it or not.

Exactly. Who do they think they are, eh? Tsk, pshaw, grumble, mutter, moan.
If two people sleep diagonally across the bed, is that as dangerous as crossing the streams in Ghostbusters?

Oh God. I'm so with you on this one. I struggled badly.
I sleep with a diagonaller and it sucks. You end up with your legs wrapped around your ears and your pillow up your arse.

It's just not fair.
Hmmm, that might be too much information about your night-time activities with Groucho...
