Did you remember the clocks went forward?

IT’S SIX THIRTY RIGHT NOW. GET UP.

PANIC!

Just kidding. It’s early enough to warn you that the clocks went forward this morning so make sure you’ve changed your smartphone, wristwatch and alarm.

The clock in your car is probably OK as it likely wasn’t changed the last time the clocks went back.

And don’t bemoan the hour less sleep, just think about all the summertime we’re now facing into. Bright mornings, a grand stretch in the evening, etc, etc.

Yes, we’re optimistic here in TheJournal.ie towers.

The Minister for Time was on hand this week to give us the formal bit:

The Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Alan Shatter, TD, would like to remind the general public that “summer time” will commence at 1.00amGreenwich Mean Time on Sunday 30 March 2014. Clocks and watches should be put forward one hour at that time. Summer time will end at 1.00am Greenwich Mean Time on Sunday 26 October 2014.
