Hi all!
So I have a quick question for all the temping guru's out there.
I am currently living in Taiwan and take my temp at 7am every morning. On weekends I do occasionally use the FF method of adding or subtracting 0.11C per hour but I rarely have to do that.

This coming Thursday Mr Man and I are travelling back to Australia for 2 weeks. We will fly in to Melbourne, then to Sydney, then to Brisbane.

What would you ladies do with regards to temp adjustments?
If I was to try to keep taking my temp at what would be 7am in Taiwan, I would have to sleep until 10am in Melbourne which is VERY unlikely to happen. But if we happened to wake up at 7am in Melbourne, that will be 3 hours earlier than my normal temp time in Taiwan. So as I am already in my LP and having temps of 36.71+, my temp would need to me 37C+ to make this method viable? But I NEVER go above 37 unless I am sick and have a fever..

Then when we head to Brisbane we will be losing an hour again..

As I'll be in my LP anyway, I'm tempted to just not temp at all, but I am kind of a junky, and I like the temp drop warning me of AF's arrival..

Any suggestions or advice ladies?

I believe after a few days your body clock will just adjust itsself so id just take it at 7am Australia time, if your in your LP then it shouldnt matter as much.
