Is daylight savings over for Victoria yet ??

So how was your peaceful Sunday?
Here it is 2:15 am or is that 1:15? or 3:15? it seems like next week! – in the short space of time since sunrise I have had a gorgeous morning with fiance … no food…. a cup of tea at the local CFA while he chatted / sorry networked … no food … a very greasy fatty Mandala [bacon & cheese sandwiched between 2 potato-cakes (scallops) battered / deep fried & cola cordial … [not really food] … sorted washing, packed car (Said fiance did most of carting down stairs to car – thank you hun I love you hun :o) !!) left Terang 4 home in Melbourne consuming on route; a pear [YAY FOOD!] a packet of thins crisps (sour cream & chives flavour), a packet of berry jubes, three chicken pieces flavoured with salt & vinegar, a hamburger with the lot (yes including beetroot!) [can I count that as food please?] and [ashamedly] a jam donut, [but I had a pear it will go straight through!] and a bottle of water … then after driving the 4 hours to get home including a stop for petrol and then a stop for information re cub scout camp my 2sons are going on in the morning I unpacked the car made sure the cats hadn’t died [ ? suspiciously very fat cats for only a few meals over the last 12 days] then charged down to collect my children … maccas coffee [bbzzzzzeeyyyeeeee!!!!] and then home [via stupid-market for children’s food [apparently they have to eat] which includes pet food [someone said they needed to eat too … fat little beasties] and a liberal dose of “no – not this shop – later – not now – later” – and my children are teenagers!] so that I could pack for said camp, finding bags and bedding and clothing and gadgets and labeling everything along with threatening daylights out of son if he lost anything … also rather strange raging queen routine from eldest son in striped purple shirt lurid purple tie and rather silly purple & blue jesters hat – I was sure he was rehearsing for Pracilla – and sitting on floor helpless with giggles due to sons silly performance [& lack of food] I then spy under the dining table an envelope which contains the 4 badges requiring sewing on the uniforms! … somewhere in there I was fed a scraping of ice-cream [food? dairy product?] … so now all has been achieved for the mornings mad dash to the bus I can relax my mind and check out my bubble before I go to bed.
So does anyone know if daylight savings is over for Victoria yet?
Can I have an extra hour tomorrow please? I might manage some breakfast before I have to drive sons to camp bus collection point and then drive 4 hours back to Terang! … hmmmm but then all I have is chocolate cake and chicken … does that count?
