How to spend your extra hour?

The
clocks go back on the 25th of October, so technically you get a
whole extra hour to do as you please! 
It’s such a lovely BONUS finding a free extra hour when usually you are
so pressed for time. Although that does not quite work so well when you have
children, because in all likelihood they will still wake up at the crack of
dawn and then you will reluctantly turn the clock back another hour and feel
even more knackered! Even though
technically you have not lost an extra hour sleep you still feel slightly
cheated!!! Their 6am wake up call turns
into a 5am start…

But
on the off-chance you can arrange a sleepover for your children at the
grandparents on the night of the 24th then the following infographic
from Tempur
is quite handy.



Having felt inspired
with these 20 things I could do I think I will ring my mum and sneakily not
mention the clock change so I can take a nap! Although some
of the suggestions are nice to do together as a family. We love playing board games; Ticket to Ride
is our new favourite so the extra hour would let us fit in another game. Eldest is getting quite skilled now and managing to complete all his routes!

I
like the idea of ringing an old friend, I would agree with the fact on average, women say 833 words per hour, compared to men who only say 291 words. I feel I
do ALL the chatting and I would love if hubbie got more engaged in
conversation with me, lately I think I have mainly been talking to myself and going on
the amount of words I speak an hour I might as well be. I think men must shrug and nod more in
agreement but not much else. So an hour
chatting to an old friend would be a lovely luxury for me.

Apparently
if you own a pet your 30% less likely to have a heart attack, so consider spending your
extra hour taking them for an really long walk or throwing the ball. They will be pleased with the attention and you could be
improving your health in the process.
