Unhappy Daylight Savings Time UGH!

Anybody else have to put their clocks forward an hour this morning?

I feel like I've been hit by a truck.

SPX however thought the light shining under the cage cover very very early this morning was wonderful so he sang his mouthy head off and demanded I get up and uncover his cage so he may start his day.

Guess I hit us too but I'm not really sure as my clocks were already about a half our fast as I was too lazy to correct them.
Guess I will have to go back to bed & figure this out later

Welcome to the horror of daylight savings. It is still going for us here Down Under. Started on the 2nd October and will not end till the 3rd April. I hate daylight savings. My poor internal clock just never adjusts to it.

In Germany daylight Savings Time will begin at the last weekend of March.
I also hate it, but Yuki and Paulchen will enjoy.
In the morning they are already playing and flapping while I'm still asleep.
When they hear the alarm clock ringing they chatter happily because they know I'll start the day and bring their breakfast soon.

Can I have breakfast with Yuki and Paulchen too?

Pancakes would be great.

Ours is 27th of March I believe! I cannot wait. Like I've said before, the clocks changing means more time after work for me to get out and fly the birds

I haven't been home much in the last couple of weeks but my aunt is here and she said she's noticed a change in SPX over the last few days. She said he's been a real mouth piece at dusk and he's been flying around the den a lot more in the later afternoon and evening. We've had some crummy wet and rainy days but by the time the afternoon rolls around there is sunshine so it looks like he is enjoying the longer day.

I wish I could say I'm enjoying the longer day.
