Life This Week 3/4/2017: Daylight Saving Is Over.....

The end of daylight saving is full of sad goodbyes for me.


It's see you next year, Christmas and all the over the top gifting, celebrating, eating and precious time with loved ones.


It's same place this time next year to the beach on a particularly oven like summer's evening.



It's having to end my summer romance with watermelons, mangos and cherries.



It's retiring my summer / early autumn wardrobe of Ts and dresses that I found at the summer sales.  The only sales I really ever get to these days because somehow life always gets in the way of the sales at other times of the year.



But the late autumn and winter that the end of daylight saving heralds has just as much to offer.  From the golden leaves you get to look up at (and then sweep from your garden once a week)



to those delicious moments when you're out on a cold and crisp morning and get to see the sun cut through the last wisps of morning fog


and the way the late afternoon sun warms you up when you get the chance to go for a walk after a a run of days spent indoors cocooning and dreaming of summer.




And yes, winter clothes are always fun with their layers, textures and colours.


Winter is always a fabulous time to explore everything Sydney has to offer.


The cooler weather is conducive to taking walks here and there on Sunday afternoons


and it's more fun trekking from train platform to train platform when Town Hall isn't feeling like a furnace.

So yes, I am looking forward to what life and the seasons will bring in this post daylight saving world.  And I'm also ready and waiting.


My clock at work gets wound back an hour before I left the office for the weekend so that it'll be business as usual once I get in Monday morning.





All the wall clocks get done on Saturday night


as do my watches

but I leave the tricky appliances like the oven clock until after I've had my first cup of coffee on Sunday morning.  Why are oven clocks so hard to adjust?  None of the buttons ever have words on them, just universal symbols that are universally confusing.

  1. Oh I know right! I can never remember how to change my oven clock. We don't have daylight savings here, so clocks are only changed when we have a black out :)

    1. Urgh. Blackout clock changing. The worst kind of clock changing, I think!

  2. I agree! Appliances are the hardest clocks to change apart from the clock in my car which I have to admit is wrong for half the year now because I just can't work it out!

    1. Just as well smart phones automatically change. And computers. They're my main time keepers right now.

  3. I just did the clock in the car this morning. That was another steep learning curve.

  5. We don't have daylight saving in Qld (although I loved it when I lived in Sydney). Each season has its beauty so I'm looking forward to enjoying Autumn and then a mild winter up here. The mornings are definitely cooling down. Have a great week!

  6. What a beautiful story in photos and words. I loved reading this. The cooler weather is being appreciated by us for better sleeping! The changing of clocks at work amused me because in schools half the teachers couldn't reach the clocks and there was no way of reaching them so in some rooms, clocks told different times. I like the way the i-devices click over all by themselves. Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 14/52. Next week: Easter

  7. The watermelons, peaches, nectarines and cherries are the toughest to say goodbye to I think. They're what I'm looking forward to the most as spring ramps up here.

    1. Ohh, I am so looking forward to tracking down these summer fruits this May when I head to Texas.

  8. I don't know how you do it remembering what clock to change and what one's you still have to change! I'm glad we don't have daylight savings. It's confusing enough when I go down south and only half my phone updates so I never know what is really the right time, haha! There's the phone time and then there's local time (brisbane) but it doesn't like to tell me which is which, just shows me two clocks and confuses me so much, ha!
