Ahead or Behind?

Few things calm my nostalgia for home like waking up (thanks to the joys of internet radio) to the ‘beeps’ of Radio 4 on the hour and to hear the news live from Aunty - the world’s most reliable source.

Few things have panicked me more, however, than the announcement this morning: “This is the news from the BBC at seven o’clock”.  I spring-vaulted out of bed - thinking I was two hours’ late - only to remember that England is two hours’ ahead.

Uh, duh.

You deliberately set your alarm and intentionally get up at 5.00am (local time) every day? That's awesome! But such a long day...

Well, I try to get up at 4.30am (it's the only time I manage to think)...
