Ineffective mnemonics

The clocks changed last night and we’re now in British Summer Time. I can never remember which way they change and I find the old aide-mémoire “spring forward, fall back” (which I’ve just had to search for on Google) effectively useless. I’ve fallen forward just as many times as I have fallen back – if not more – and my natural tendency would always be to spring back away from something in trepidation rather than springing towards it.

Besides, most of my time-pieces change themselves now which leads me to wander around looking confused for a few hours until I see independent verification of the actual time.
