Update [Dec. 10th, 2016|11:09 am]

I try again an hour later. It's now 11.00 o'clock. She has of course forgotten her earlier reluctance and is as amenable as a lamb, gets up, puts on her bed jacket and dressing-gown, inserts her hearing aids (all with assistance) and comes downstairs.

I suppose it would be impossible to run our complicated urban civilisation without clocks, but I don't see why those of us who live on its edges- who are old and sleepy and ruralised- need to be so much in thrall to them.

It has taken me 8 months to ignore clocks and I am really enjoying that part of retirement especially.

I have a love/hate relationship with clocks. I like them as objects but dislike having them tell me what to do. It's ages since I last wore a watch.

Clocks are only good for such things as doctor's appointments and other dreary engagements.
