Given we left Buenos Aires at 5pm Sunday their time (9am Monday here) and had very little sleep it doesn’t make any difference to our body clocks that daylight saving started on Sunday.
But it was only 6 degrees when we got home at 5am, there’s fresh snow on the Kakanui Range and a chill breeze blowing which indicates again that it is till too early to put the clocks forward.
The timing this year did coincide with the start of school holidays which will give teachers and pupils a couple of weeks to adjust before having to face the classroom.
But that’s the only positive I can see in losing an hour in the morning this close to the spring solstice.
But if I’m finding adjusting to travelling a long distance and being short of sleep, it’s nothing to how the All Blacks must be feeling.
