Not the only one who can’t tell the time

Yesterday, I came out of class at 1, thinking it was 12. I then missed a meeting, turning up an hour late because I thought it was 1:30 when, in fact, it was 2:30.

Feeling a bit of numpty, I went into the garden for the first time since Monday when I got home. And I was greeted by none other than a flowering tomato plant. I planted it sometime in July, so its timekeeping makes mine look exemplary.

There are only two more weeks before it will be too dark after work to enjoy the garden. I’d therefore better try to get out a bit more, as it is so grounding.

NB After I had posted the above, WordPress congratulated me on this being my 1, 337th post. I’m not sure what the significance of this number is but perhaps someone at WP thought since I have trouble with numbers, I would be delighted.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    I once turned up in a lecture theatre at uni for what I thought was my lesson only to realise very quickly it was the wrong room, but I stayed as it was interesting and I didn’t want to distract the other students.

    We all have days like that🙂so don’t feel like a numpty.

  3. Did you have to remind me that we are going to mess around with the clocks again soon?

    I can give you some information on 1337! I read someone else’s blog where they had been congratulated on their 1337th post and wondered what it was all about and one of their followers said:
    1337 was originally used by hackers to avoid net searches. The numbers refer to words or sounds e.g. 8 = ate, 3 = E etc. Like old-fashioned text-speak. It was then used by the gaming community to mean an especially skilled player. I think this is where WordPress comes in! Apparently it is now only used by people who think they are cool but aren’t! 😀
