Thank god it's over.........


Daylights Savings ends here tonight...........

I am SOOOOOOO HAPPY

...............for weeks now I have been waking my kids up in the dark.......I feel SOOOOOO bad waking them in the dark and it is not early but we have to make it to the bus run or they don't get to school....................sunrise this morning was 7.20am..............I wished we didn't have it at all..............I HATE IT..............

And a farming husband that works til dark at times misses out on family time............

it's just to keep the city people happy not the people out in the country.............(city people love daylight savings usually)

Western Australia vote NO NO NO when you vote to decide next month.............

Queensland and the Northern Territory have the right idea...........

NO DAYLIGHT savings.........


.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  3. I'm with you. I love getting up early in the morning when the sun is up or on it's way up and living in brissie I look forward to the sun going down and a slight cool change happening at the end of the day. It will be great to get everyone back to normal time.

  4. Oh I am with you 100%!! I hate daylight saving...! and it drags on now for six months! I am a morning person and have been getting up in the dark for weeks....and can only wonder what it must be like for those who are further west! It is barely light when I am arriving at work.....! I will be happily turning my clock back tonight!!

  7. Well this city girl loves daylight savings - sorry Chooky! I have to say though I don't like it going on this long as yes it is dark too long on the morning.
    As for your hubby working in the dark, some city people go to work and come home in the dark too!!Speaking from experience LOL

  9. Hello, i have to agree with Anita - i am a 'city' girl who was brought up in the country,do and dont like daylight savings. My husband catches the bus to work in the dark and gets home in the dark in winter so having some daylight after work is a bonus for him.I dont think city people have any choice to have or not to have it- same as you.. regards... Heather

  10. In the states, daylight savings time was started so that kids could help out on the farm during planting and harvesting. Now with most farms being machined it really isn't necessary. When my kids were young it was really hard to get them to bed in the summer (as we are backward from you) even though they were off school, we still had to work!! I think daylight savings time is a thing of the past....

  11. I'm not a big fan of changing up the times either! My father used to say that Daylight Savings was like cutting off the bottom of a blanket and sewing it to the top. Hey, let's just keep the blanket intact!

  12. Nice to hear all the different points of view expressed - really, personally it doesn't bother me one way or the other - not nice being 3 hours behind the eastern states,though! WA - wait awhile?

  13. I am SOOOOOOOOO glad to be back in QLD - land of the "No Daylight Savings"!! We hated DS when we lived in Bourke - being night owls, it really messed with our internal clocks - not to mention always being afraid of missing the turn back and forward!! Hope you can catch up a little with your clocks back on 'real' time! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

  15. I'm with you I can do without daylight savings. I wish we could get rid of it in the states. There are only a couple of states that don't have it. I'm not living in either of them.

  16. Oh I so love daylight savings time, we have just changed back which is kinda OK 'cos we heading into autumn and winter anyway, but I just love it over the summer as it means more garden time, but I can understand your perspective

  17. I heartily agree- hate daylight saving!

  18. yep - i'm a city girl who loves daylight savings - it gives us more freedom after dinner for the kids to play outside and do things before bed time. the more chance they get for being active the better! Besides, the thought of the sun rising at 5.00am......well for me it doesn't bear thinking about. i don't think it needs to go on for six months though....

  19. Spose I would be classed as a City Girl that loves daylight saving but I also DON'T "GET" IT. Why can't we all just leave the bloody clocks alone. I'll spend all day today now trying to re-set all our clocks in the house. You don't realise how many you have til this has to be done. 2 down, 8 to go.

  20. we are over the ditch, and our daylight saving has just ended also. i do like it but they have extended ours for a few weeks at each end. As you say waking up and getting up in the dark is no fun!! I don't mind it, but its a bit too long. We work in the suberbs but live in the bush.

  21. Have to disagree with you on this one I LOVE daylight saving.

  22. I too am glad it is over-went on a bit long this year

  23. I agree with Jenny - it went on too long here in NZ. I hate dark mornings and getting up...my body clock says no it's not light yet!

  24. Hello! I just discovered your awesome....ummm should have said OZsome...blog! I read some back posts and saw your lovely Tea Swap creation with the fabric with the stacked teacups... can you tell me the name of this fabric or the manufacturer? I'd love to find some to buy! Come visit my blog, too! love, Polly from www.auntpollysporch.blogspot.com

  25. I love daylight savings

    and I live in the wait awhile state of Western Australia

    and I agree with Lurline its not nice to be so far behind the eastern states, makes calling family on the east coast tricky at night, I keep waking my parents up at 10pm EST lol and I know Icould call earlier but I refuse to pay telstra any more money than I have to!

  26. I'm not keen on it either. Hate trying to get kids to bed, when its still daylight outside. Am very happy its over!!!

  27. I could "just" cope when it was the minimum, but this extension to 6 months on and 6 off with no consultation means I have forgotten what DH even looks like!! So am completely with you! Tracey
    ps, also adore your swap gifts-I saw them at jane;s blog..and great buckets...and sorry about the calf, the only joy that comes from inserting arms to arm pits and wrecking your back comew when calf is alive-anything else is heartbreak!

  28. I know what you mean...having been late to work that day this spring!

  29. I'm a city girl who hates saylight saving. My question is why? Why do we have it? It plays havoc with your bodyclock and you feel dreadful for 6 months!
