Daylight saving starts here on Sunday 2nd October at 2am. What does that mean for contacting the family and friends in the UK? Well at present we are 9 hours ahead of the UK. As of this Sunday, we will be 10 hours ahead for 4 weeks, until the UK returns to GMT, at which point we become 11 hours ahead. Confused? You will be because not all of Australia actually follows it, but we live and Stuart works in 2 of the states that do, so from this weekend onwards, when you contact us at 10am on a Sunday morning, it will actually be 8pm Sunday night here, not the 7pm it has been since we arrived!
