Spring Forward, Fall Back
Daylight saving time ended this morning. I’d known beforehand but it still managed to confuse me! When I woke up, my phone told me it was 9 am. I’d actually forgotten about the clocks changing at this point. I opened Fitbit to check my sleep. It told me I woke up at 8 am! I was puzzled. Was Fitbit broken?
At breakfast, Piers reminded me about the time change. I was, like, oh yeah! I thought Fitbit was broken. But then I continued to think about it and realised that Fitbit should have thought it was 10 am, not 8 am. In any case, doesn’t it follow my phone’s time, which auto updates? So I’m still terribly confused!
The temperature dipped to winter levels these two days. I decided not to turn on the heating yet because last winter, we had to have an oil refuel like every month and that’s very unpleasant for me because I get anxious dealing with strangers. Plus it’s expensive, like £500 per refuel.
I went around the house covered head to toe, 4 layers on my torso and wearing my thickest winter coat. When I have to dress and undress and it’s so painfully cold, I keep thinking of people who cannot afford heating and who don’t have enough warm clothes. I feel very grateful for everything we have.
