Daylight Savings

Don’t forget to wind your clock forward an hour for all in Melbourne if you haven’t already done so. I’m aware that those over in some parts of the world have to wind their clocks back an hour. So it’s the reverse.

I’m also aware that those living in Queensland, Western Australia and Northern Territory don’t need to adjust their clocks.

Anyway, my younger brother started changing all the clocks in my house forward an hour yesterday at about 5pm without telling anybody. My mum went into the kitchen, noticed the time. She had no idea that my brother had already switched the time forward an hour, and she decided it was time to make dinner. He didn’t say anything at all. Whoops.

I’m sure there’s many other daylight savings related stories out there. Anyone?

I’ve heard of people forgetting whether it’s a change forward, or change backwards an hour. And others forgetting to change their clocks altogether and waking up either one hour early, or one hour late :P

    With VCE exams commencing, it’s not a great time to change the time…

    Yeah it’s tough for all those doing exams.

    But really, they shouldn’t be leaving it all to the last minute :)

    My brother had two exams today at uni, so he definately felt the time change.

    At least though, you’ll have a bit of time to relax in the sun Ed. Think of the extra hours of daylight after exams :)
