Changing of the clocks
« on: 01 April, 2003, 04:50:16 PM »
The changing of the clocks last weekend has really bollixed me. I am absolutely shattered every morning - more so than normal. I even had an argument with Mrs X this morning because I told her to "shhh" (I don't do mornings). Well, she haraunged me and I listened. Is this a sign of old age, or am I just working too hard (an average of 13 hours a day, for the last 14 days - including weekends. Poor me!) God help me, EVEN COFFEE DOESN'T WORK!

I got passed the problem of the changing clocks buy accidently staying up to 5am / 6am (depending on which way you look at it).  Then slept in.

That way, when you do wake up, you've know idea what the time should be anyway so you just have to trust the new time.


Having said all that, I managed to stay at work for an extra hour yesterday because they haven't changed the clocks here yet.

an average of 13 hours a day, for the last 14 days

careful you will have all the females telling you thats there normal daily routine.

but i would suggest its the lack experience of doing such long hours.it wil take its toll. i have always worked a 12 hour day since i can remerbernote to all dont even consider a chefs job.
a single day wont work. you need one to rest and one to enjoy, then get back to it. you will accomplish far more,.
I AM VERY BUSY!
PJ Maybe and I use the same dictionary, live with it.

I tend to compensate myself by thinking that although I may be tired, at least I have achieved a primitive form of time travel.

13 hours ?! pah poofs ! i laugh at your meagre hours !

actually in my opinion its not the hours your working, lets face it working 12 hours digging trenches is different from 12 hours shuffling papers... however its the stress & the pressure that youre under.
dd's one day to rest & one to enjoy sounds very sensible. i generally only get sundays off , but when i say off, i mean to catch up with sleep, the housework & spend time with the family. so by monday morning i'm even more shattered.

nope, everyone was chill out & relax more, i prescribe by royal decree that all must leave work early, have a nice long hot bath, put the feet up & lol about in the chat room.

Blah, blah, blah.

Your decrees lack originality, dignified capital letters and proper syntax.

You poor, sad, teuchter copy of a real monarch.

BTW I regularly work 13-hour shifts at work. It's a pain in the arse but not all Kings spend their time opening supermarkets and selling presents folk have given them.

blah blah blah, this ex-king clearly is liveing in the past, since when has this lovely gorgeous foxy teuchter Queen worked less than 13 hours a day?
since when do real foxy monarchs go to supermarkets? we're too busy working to eat or shop !
presents ? pah in my shiney happy domain i make & give all the presents.

no idea has he, but then since when did the ex-troutman king last get a slot on the news ? ( well okay the bit after the news)

poor poor sassenach .( in the sense of southerner rather than english-poof)
