Always my least favourite weekend of the year, with the night's drawing in by the extra hour.
Seems earlier than the similar move in the UK which usually the last weekend in October (equivalent of April here).

My least favorite weekend also.

Preceded by a change in light and a shift in the shadows which spells autumn.

My favorite day of the year is June 21st...it means (more or less) that the shortest day has come and gone.

Have we ever told you it's considered impolite in New Zealand to decline an invitation to sit on the neighbours dick? The strangeness has only just begun.

I must be tired, you can tell its harvest.

I read that as "Chooks go back an hour".

Chooks here need to lay some iggs.

Going good thanks very much, get a day off tomorrow, then back into it, 6am pick.

Very interesting but when I process grapes there's usually a loo at the last stage.
