The time thing

This little piece is about Switzerland. Here Catrin is always at school 8:25 - 11:45, 14:00 - 16:45 but Gwilym has a different start-time nearly every day. Lunch is always 12:00 till 14:00, but he finishes the day at different times too.

Next year when Catrin goes to the same collège as Gwilym running them back and fore to school will be more complicated than now because of all the staggered starts.

However here in Bordeaux we are muc more relaxed about timekeeping. We call it le quart d'heure Bordelais (the Bordeaux 1/4 hour). An uncanny resemblance to Deeside-Time, which is about 15 minutes behind Greenwich.
