If you live anywhere other than Australia – this probably won’t matter to you.
Daylight savings is upon us here in the land of the Upside Down. It’s my favourite time of the year. It means the days are longer and, dare i say it, Christmas is just around the corner.
That said – it does make working life very difficult.
Not every state switches their clocks and so for the next 6 months we’re more or less confused with time differences
For example – NSW, VIC, TAS, ACT and Norfolk Island observe DLS
QLD, WA, NT, Christmas Island and Cocos Islands do not. ( Rumour has it Daylight Savings upsets the animals / causes curtains to fade in colour due to being hit with extra sunlight. There is however, no proof of this.)
This means that:
QLD is one hour behind
NT is an hour and a half behind
WA and the Islands are three hours behind.
Ergo – we spend 6 months utterly lost with time differences and by the time we’ve all figured it out – Daylight Savings is over and we’re back to square one.
Those that don’t observe loathe those that do – claiming a working relationship is difficult to maintain because of opening and closing hours being all up in the air. But hey, that’s not our problem. If they just joined in with the rest of us and observed accordingly – they wouldn’t have this problem.
*Laughs* ..Oh well.
In other news, my life as a Science Experiment continues and *hopefully* there will be a decent chiropractor thrown into the mix. This one is local and has done wonders for my Aunt who has suffered Sciatica for years. Apparently, after a few visits this one was able to *un-pinch* her … So I’m hoping they’ll be able to do the same with me. I’ve thrown a lot at this condition of mine over the years and this is just another option to consider.
More to come on that as it unfolds.
