My Part of the World

This month our lovely editor Carly has asked Womans World contributors to talk about what's happening in their part of the world.

I live in Melbourne, Australia and two days ago we started daylight savings. We turn our clocks forward an hour which means more daylight at the end of the day instead of at the begining. I LOVE daylight savings, but I hate this transition period.

It's kinda cold here in Melbourne still, even though we keep getting little teasers of warm spring weather, most days are a little drizzly, a lot windy, and cold enough to keep me from wearing my pretty summer dresses and open toe sandals.

I've diligently set my alarm at 6am both yesterday and today in the hopes of getting up early enough to do some pre-work exercise. But the dark mornings, and the drizzle, and the cold are keeping me in bed.

But there's an energy in the air at this time of year, things are gearing up and it's exciting. The days are getting longer and warmer, summer is on the way, and the holiday season too (not to mention my birthday). I've booked my leave with work and have many things to look forward to. I love summer.

Do you have daylight savings where you live? How do you cope with the transition period? Are you a summer girl or a winter girl?

What's happening in your part of the world?
