Yippee! An extra hour of parenting today


Any talk of an extra hours sleep this morning has been rubbished by parents, who’ve already had to look after their own children for a free hour.

With young children pre-programmed to wake up for the start of Milkshake, many parents will have been up at 5, watching an hour of Jeremy Kyle with the sign language woman in the corner.

Local parent, Peter Thape has tried to sit his child down with an iPad for the extra hour, until Peppa Pig kicked in.

‘And it’s been freezing; had to have the heating on for an extra hour,’ said Thape.

‘You can keep your hour; no one understands it, anyway,’ added Thape.
