“I’ve had an extra hour in bed” said no parent ever…

The clocks have gone back, and therefore it was said,
That we’d all get a whole extra hour in bed.

But to whomever said it I wish to complain,
As clearly it seems that this change was in vain.

We’re all up at 5 and with nothing to do.
As even CBeebies is sleeping in too.

And all we’ve achieved on this dark autumn day,
is that bed time’s a whole extra hour away!?

“Spring forward, fall back” is all just a farse,
When our offspring still wake at the same crack of arse!

It’s now GMT which means “Grumpy Mum Time”
So sending you all hugs and coffee (and wine!)

  1. This gave a mum who has been up since 5, along with all the others, the first (and probably only!) chuckle of the day! I also read it aloud to my husband who was suitably impressed! Adding ‘that’s bloody brilliant! She’s really flipping clever!’ So I think he summed up both our sentiments today! Especially as it’s a running joke in our house that usually by 8am, one of us is shouting ‘how long till bed time??!’ Going to be a killer waiting that extra hour!
    Awesome as usual!
