I worry about Del, but I'm always confuzzled about the time difference.

If it's 6pm in London, what the hell is it in Oz?

It's the antipodes so if you figure on around 12 hrs ahead of the UK then it's about right although I think the time difference is more like 9 or 10 hours-ish in eastern Oz. Basically when she's getting up tomorrow we're going to bed today in other words (would have said the other way around but as she's regularly up until 4 am that's not so meaningful) ;)

I think she's probably just got a lot on with the house sale and juggling school stuff and work schedules and so something has to give and online 'luxury' time has been downwardly prioritised :shock:

Yeah.

I know she's got a shedload of stuff to contemplate at the moment, but the occasional text on my phone at stupid-o-clock would make me breathe a little better for Family Del!.

London (United Kingdom - England) Tuesday, 30 October 2012, 18:00:00 GMT UTC
Brisbane (Australia - Queensland) Wednesday, 31 October 2012, 04:00:00 EST UTC+10 hours
Corresponding UTC (GMT) Tuesday, 30 October 2012, 18:00:00


So, 4 am according to an online converter.

Actually, I had a PM from Del recently about a certain person in her household who is having a birthday very soon and who finds it difficult to get their head around the fact that Brisbane is so far ahead. Consequently I may be posting someones birthday thread a little earlier than normal. :shhh: :shhh: :shhh: ;)

When Rufus (he lives upstairs, and allows two humans to reside there as well) leaves little presents, they've usually got body parts missing, or on one memorable occasion, a head, a back, both sets of legs, but no belly or intestines.

So, I have to say in that regard, I'm lucky. No dismemberment or gooey bits sticking out. But I was in my bare feet!! :x I might have to invest in some slippers.

:| They look a tad real. I wonder if they make a squeaking noise with each step.

Was vacuuming under the kid's bed this time. I saw something round(ish)on the other side against the wall. I gave it a flick with the vacuum towards me. Roll, roll, roll comming to a stop beside my knee... A rat's head. Faaaaaaarrrrrrkkkkkk!
