Insane brain......

Living Down Under means one is slightly out of step with what is happening on the other side of the world - time wise. The fifteen hour difference in time means that while I am typing this post, it is still yesterday in New York, the home of Joggles who are releasing the lessons online for Sharon's course every Thursday for the next few weeks. Last week I waited very impatiently on Thursday (here) until I could download the lesson, forgetting the time difference was so great, and eventually doing it on Friday morning when I got up - that was fine, though kind of frustrating knowing that while I slept, others would already be enjoying first glimpses of the lesson and challenges. Sometimes I don't sleep well, and though I did not consciously plan it, today I woke at 4.am. Realising that the lesson would be available, and knowing I would never get back to sleep until I did, there I was logging on, downloading, changing printer cartridges, and putting the pages into a folder - then back to bed with a cup of tea to read them all. My mental alarm clock was working well. Insane!

I was the same the first week or two. it seem worse that the notes go from Australia and back again - we should be the FIRST to see them. by the end though the 'extra' day was appreciated so i could sort of keep up to date!

Daylight savings time begins here in the US Sun Morn at 2 AM.. you'll have to make yet another adjustment. When Sharon posts the TIF notes, it's fun to get them early...have fun with this weeks class.

Having lived in one place all my life...it's hard to even imagine a place where you are having a different season and such a time difference. I love being able to see your daffodils while my leaves are falling!! Of course, it probably won't be fun when we are snowed under and you are basking in the sunshine.!!

My blog operates on GMT time, and if I add a blog too early in the day it's still yesterday, then I have to do another one for today, or I can leave it till tomorrow morning. At least I think tha't how it goes!
