Work was a little stressful, full on and over the top last week, so the weekend was something to look forward to. My brother is up from the country so yesterday I took him out to the Royal Easter Show. We walked around for a couple of hours, saw the cattle, the horses, a fairly lame show in the main arena and then came home. I put him on a bus to my other brother's place, and then went into town for a beer or three.
A fairly early night followed.
This afternoon was a choir soiree over at Balmain, overlooking Sydney Harbour. Good friends, great weather, fascinating conversation and a couple of glasses of wine. The idea was a fundraiser. Pay a fee for lunch and one glass, and buy the rest with the profits going to the choir. About 15-17 people showed up. The back yard was large and we could have catered for twice that number. Kudos to the hostess with the mostess, and the organising team.
And the weather was glorious - high 20's C, mid 70's F.
For a reason which escapes me, this year we put daylight savings back one week. Later- They're trying to harmonise the change for all the states as in the past states have changed daylight savings time both in autumn and spring on different dates which can cause confusion when you're flying from state tot state and you leave earlier than you arrive, or vice versa, even if the states are directly geographically similar (i.e. on top of one another). Obviously between the Eastern, and Western states and south Australia its different, but Victoria, NSW, and Queensland should all basically have the same time, which they don't usually do as a rule. Do you get my drift! - But all the computers, all the mobile phones, all the airport indicator boards were showing the time they should be showing next week, i.e. 1 hour back as we "fall" into autumn. Chaos reigned, flights missed and delayed etc. A little bit like Y2K, but Y2K was a bit of a fizzer.
Aint technology grand.
