... in France?

Does anyone know? It seems to be a bit of an enigma here. We could do with that extra hour of daylight here on a morning although I realise it will only be a matter of days/weeks until we are back in the same predicament

Winter calls.

No, we do it in France too! That way we're always an hour ahead of you.

I just hate these dark mornings and really feel for the kids as school starts at 8.00 (8.30 for the really little'uns) it's too early! Well it's the the teachers I feel for really!

It's the same time as the UK - next weekend.

It says in my diary "Sunday 29 October British & EU Summer Time ends". Someone has written boo-hoo alongside.
