In response to Judith Law’s letter in NDL, September 25, complaining once again about her dislike for Daylight Saving (DLS): I am here to say Ms Law, sit down and take a chill-pill.
By now I imagine the whole world is aware of how much you despise DLS. I, together with a wide proportion of NSW, happen to love DLS.
I know you’re surprised by this statement (so it’s lucky you’re sitting down), but some people actually embrace the extra daylight at the end of a long day at work, to be able to come home for some relaxing down-time in the garden, extra time playing with the kids outside, and generally enjoying life.
Yes, my kids can be a little harder to get up in the morning and put to bed at night, but guess what. Curtains don’t fade, chooks don’t stop laying, and kids adapt and survive – they’ve been doing it their whole life, as have I.
I for one hope that DLS is not taken away, and for you to state that you speak “on behalf of all citizens in NSW and beyond” against DLS, I feel is both arrogant and presumptuous.
Ms Law, you do not speak on behalf of me, and I suggest that if you took the time to come out of
the dark ages, and use the extra daylight for doing more fun things instead of complaining, you too might see light at the end of the day and experience more joy in the world.
