Changes – big ones and little ones – they seem to happen all the time.
Luckily there haven’t been any major ones in my life recently but I have noticed some little ones – some I don’t mind – others I dislike.

You’ll notice I’ve changed back to my original theme.
Least said about the ‘new one’ I tried the better!

Our local bank premises (one of the big four with the colour blue featuring prominently in its branding) has been given a makeover.  There is a ‘take a ticket’ system with couches to wait on, however all the tellers are side by side along a counter with no dividing panels separating them.  Very different and a bit confronting withdrawing large amounts of cash (as I do on occasion) in full view of everyone else 😦

There are changes in radio / tv programmes – minor in the whole scheme of things except for those who do not like them lol

Most of Australia ‘fell back’ when our clocks changed this past weekend (so we are back to Australian Eastern Standard Time –  AEST) the east coast is now 10 hours in front of Greenwich Mean Time or Zulu Time or UTC. – but of course because of time changes in other countries we are less than that in actual time – if you follow my meaning lol

I know they’ve always been there but when did we change and start using all those other names in everyday speech??

The ‘extra hour’ we ‘gained’ on Sunday changed meant I was rested and wide awake to see daylight about 6am today, – but according to this study our body clocks don’t change that quickly.

A sharp reminder of the season change was when I stopped the car outside the Montrose library and glanced at the hills and saw the yellow colour of this tree staring me in the face.

Which means there will be seasonal changes in the garden – some are evident now.
I can see the Cuban Lilly – Scilla peruviana – has new shoots pushing their heads up out of the ground.
They will be blooming about September/October time.

Those are last years dead oak leaves by the way. Next door’s tree will supply me with plenty – very soon!!

How do you go with changes?
Seasonal or otherwise?
