Listen To Me [Sep. 5th, 2012|10:59 am]
Tony Grist
I like chiming clocks- in principle- but they can be a pain at night. If you're already finding it hard to sleep their "Ding, ding, ding" translates into "Listen to me, listen to me, listen to me." I had that happen a night or two back. Clock struck eleven and I thought "Just another hour before it strikes twelve." Which meant I was all keyed up waiting for it to strike twelve. After twelve I was waiting for it to strike one and after one I was waiting for it to strike two. That was when I beat the jinx. Briefly. Next time I checked my bedside clock the time was two thirty and I thought "Oh good, I've been asleep." And then I thought "Only half an hour until it strikes three."

We let it wind down- and left it that way for couple of days- but first thing this morning Ailz wound it up again. I was out in the yard feeding the rabbits when I heard "Ding, ding ding..." Oh, great!

It's a pity there isn't some mechanism to silence it at night. Can you muffle it in some way? Perhaps put a tea cosy over it? :) Or could you move it to a different room where it can be heard in the day but not at night?

I could just stop the pendulum.

Our chiming clock, somehow, stops chiming at ten PM and starts again at eight AM.

What a splendid arrangement.
