Members in the UK and many other places should remember that British Summer time begins this weekend.

Strictly speaking, at 01-00 on Sunday morning, clocks should be put FORWARD one hour to 02-00.
Domestically it is usual to make the adjustment shortly before retiring tonight, Saturday 28th.

As well as time pieces, remember that some IT equipment and time switches for heating or lighting control will need altering.

If you are responsible for pets or livestock, don't alter routines by a whole hour at once.

That is being a bit fussy. Feeding and milking times for livestock can routinely moved one hour per day as needed. A single one hour change will not bother them one bit as they will get fed or milked a bit early now and might not be awake or hungry ( or at least not as much as usual) and even when they fall back the hour in the fall will hardly notice once the food is in front of them and the inflations are on the teets.
Good cows get full and if not milked on time will start to leak out onto the floor. The best cows get milked three times a day instead of the traditional two to prevent the product from being wasted.
Those of you who have had your wife breast feed your children will have memories of her being late back to the baby and getting a letdown response that caused a lot of leakage. Annoying if you are at a public function and it shows through the dress but actually charming that she is so prepared to provide for your child. Don't ever tease her about it if you like sleeping indoors.

Being in self-isolation, with kids at home... What the actual clock says has never been less relevant!
