Sometimes it drags and sometimes it flies. For me the days don't pass especially fast but it sometimes seems that the months and years fly by.

Not always though. I keep all my favourite sites in a database and use a web app to present me with my own home page of them. I put my countdown to Brexit image on that page and although it seems we left an age ago it tells me that it was only just a tad over a week.

I think that Real time and time thought of retrospectively are very different things..It's a fact that time viewed this way will concertina because most of it is hum-drum with small islands of memorable to give it some perspective..Time doesn't care at all, it just passes.

It is odd, isnít it? Most days seem to drag on for ages, yet weeks and months seem to fly by. Friday it will be a year since our little dog had to be put to sleep, and some days it seems no time at all ago, others I seem to have been without her almost for ever

I find the summer days go so much faster than the winter ones. Always out n about in the good weather, today has really dragged being stuck in the house thanks to the weather.

It's Monday now, just, and I bet I'll soon be saying Gawd is it Friday tomorrow already ?  I seem to do it every week.

I put up reminder cards for stuff it is important I don't forget. My old one to put the bins out also said "it's that time again" as a nod to the amount of times I've said just that but I recently replaced it.

 As Einstein said ď Time is Relative indeed for me  the winter months now drag on and on , they didnít when I was a kid ,I woke up each day eager to see if it had snowed , in my old age I now hibernate ,and look forward to Summer ,and  yes winter drags,on and on,  and what we laughingly call summer passes in a flash , for me  time = aging

It's not time that's the problem..Reading these posts it seems like it's our way of dealing with it that is flawed... ;)
