DS's routine is now totally out the window and now I've got to try and get him back into one again. Why does anyone want another hour of daylight on the hottest 40 degree days?? I guess I got spoilt by the 4 years I lived in QLD. I HATE HATE HATE it. Just venting... ah feel better now I've got that out.

As a queenlsander I hate it. Trying to do business in a national company was a pain in the bum. Bring it in up here I say.

Yeah it's annoying at work when I can't communicate with Perth for 3 hours and Brisbane for an hour at the start of the day, then they have the same problem with communicating with us in Sydney at the end of the day.
But I love that I'm able to go for a walk after work or water my garden and it's still daylight.

I hate, hate, hate it as well!
The best thing about QLD is NO daylight savings!

So glad we don't have it in WA - although it makes working with the east hard at times, it's a 2pm shut off in some cases.
I guess the worst part will be the silly phone calls on DH's mobile (he works for a national financial group) will start one hour earlier. They can't get through on the office switchboard (because it's 6am here) so they try his mobile ... and don't understand why he's in the shower. Doh! Check the postcode peeps!

I hate the changeover, but love the extra daylight. I get home from work at 6:00pm and love the extra daylight, means I can get some stuff done outdoors, and bring washing in off the line before the dew hits it and makes it damp again.

I love it! Extra daylight to do stuff outside is great

At my place in the middle of summer it's light until getting on to 8pm. It's just too hot for that and totally unnecessary.

I love it. DH hates it.
I guess it IS just the time that changes though. Not really an extra hour of daylight as such.
I love having extra daylight to go for walks at the end of the day when DH will be home.
I get it isn't for everyone!

Gosh I would love DLS. I'd even consider an hour for the entire year and 2 hours for summer! I would love to sit out longer on summer nights without risk of mozzies. I don't need beaming sunlight at 4:30am.
I loved it in the UK and Victoria how during the peak of summer the sun didn't go down until quite late. Lovely long nights!!
But I understand the OP wants a vent if they don't like it.
