rosey pinky - CopyI was talking to my friend Rosey on the phone the other day when she suddenly squeaked then said “Look at the time”. I looked at the time and said “I’m looking at the time, what about it?” She said, “It’s twenty to eleven and past my bedtime!” It was five minutes to eight!

When the clocks go forward it takes her ages to adjust. For days she claims she’s suffering jet lag!

Last March she wound the hands back an hour instead of forward and met me for lunch two hours late.

As for the 24-hour clock on her phone…



Over the past 10 years, I’ve written over 100 stories about My Friend Rosey – for this years A-Z Challenge I wrote 26! If you are interested you can find 70 or so by clicking HERE!

  1. Hi Keith – I’m struggling here to remember I’m almost at the end of the time-clock line … so can imagine Rosey and many like her becoming completely befuddled with the time change – especially when you write about it – when it’s still six or seven weeks away! Cheers Hilary

  2. Rosey seems like an interesting person. My father is always late everywhere we end up telling him the wrong time sometimes when its something important haha. I love people like that, always late, but always a joy to have around.. when they get there haha!

  3. Really, Rosie? I have to admit, I didn’t turn my car clock in either direction. Used to drive my kids crazy when they were little. It was always a good way to start a conversation. So, I’m with you, Rosie.

  4. It’s lovely to see Rosey again. Poor thing, she should see the clock in my car. Someone mixed up the spring forward and fall back… and now it’s two hours late, or just one. We’re too lazy to set it right and in a way it’s fun. Please write more Rosey. 🙂
