& Dealing with Daylight Savings!
I’m not going to lie; I am seriously excited that it’s April! Aside from December (for obvious reasons!), April is my absolute favourite month. I’m an April baby (my birthday is on the twenty-fourth!) and I just love the way trees look during Autumn. In New Zealand, we’ve just switched off daylight savings time. I’m not sure whether it’s because I grew up in South-East Asia, where we don’t actually have seasons; but I am truly dreadful at adjusting to time changes. Actually, it took both myself and Barnaby until midday yesterday to even realize the change! We don’t own a tv, so were completely oblivious to any ‘reminder’ adverts! I just so happened to be doing a pinch of Facebook stalking, and realized it had changed! I was wondering why we’d woken up so early!
The confusion has carried through onto today. I ended up asleep before nine last night (!) and awake at six this morning. Shocking, I know – but it actually turned out super well! We had an early morning park walk – by early, I mean seven! It was quite wonderful – we ended up tiptoeing down a pathway lined with sleeping ducks. I have a big soft spot for ducks, as I’m sure you know by now, and it was incredibly difficult resisting reaching over and giving them a pat. They really are my favourites! I wore a hooded cape I bought several years ago paired with a vintage pleat dress. The shoes were courtesy of Modcloth, and the frill socks were an ASOS purchase.
