Unless you live in NSW, Tasmania, Victoria, the ACT, or South Australia or need to talk to/deal with people who do, this whinge won’t make a great deal of difference to you. For anyone who does live in the aforementioned states clocks go forward by one hour on the first Sunday in October, this year Sunday October 7.
I was looking forward to the start of daylight saving on the long weekend. Shame that it doesn’t start until the weekend after :(
Starting on the weekend of the long weekend would have given the kids 1 week of school holidays on daylight saving time, enough to adjust to the time shift and get crankyness out of their systems. Teachers must dread this time of year. I am waking early with the pre-dawn light (apologies for whinging about sleep to any readers with sleeping difficulties/illnesses and/or small children/people needing overnight care) and was looking forward to it being time to get up when I woke. Also, it starts to feel like summer is really coming (cue grey clouds and cold wind outside) when daylight saving starts. Although I’m not entirely sure why I’m looking forward to it so much this year. Maybe it’s a sign of age? Also, you kids get off my lawn.
