Yesterday I woke up some time in the night and checked my watch, it was 2:45am. I love that feeling; waking up in the middle of the night and checking the time seeing you have a good few hours left to sleep yet! It's so relaxing, unless of course you can't get to sleep after that! That's annoying!

Luckily I fell asleep and when I next woke up, it was lighter outside and I checked my watch, still 2:45am. How odd! Anyway, so obviously my watch has stopped working and so I left it on the side in the hope that it would miraculously come back to life. Mid afternoon approached and still no ticking, it still read at 2:45am. How sucky! 

Couple hours later, I checked it again but still no luck. I guess watch batteries aren't too good at self resuscitation, but I decided to give it one last go. So I changed the time to the current time - 6:08pm - and put my watch back on. It was only then I realised that it felt so weird to have my watch back on my wrist, heavy and very noticeable. But it had only been a few hours! I'd understand if it had been a few weeks or months, but hours? 

Anyway, it took me about an hour to get used to that watch wearing feeling again and today my watch stil reads 6:08pm. I now know a bit of what Bernad from Bernard's Watch felt like when he stopped time, only time for me hasn't stopped! Just my watch! Guess I'll be paying a visit to the watch shop sooner than later!
