My date lozenges in Confluence are coming out wrong

Just recently my date formats have been messed up in Confluence. (It was working before.)

I want to use the English date format, so 02/09/2019 is the 2nd of September.

But the lozenge gets converted to February.

(My Windows laptop has the language and date settings set correctly)

Am I missing a setting somewhere? Any ideas?

Hello there, @Rob Hallifax !
As I understand, you need the Date picker macro to use the international date format, Day/Month/Year.
If the above is correct, there are threads with some pretty useful information about this situation:

The date picker format should be connected to your default language in Confluence or automatically getting the browser language. Which might explain the sudden change of format. 
Let us hear from you Rob!

Thanks Diego. That got it! I had checked the language everywhere apart from at my user level.

All good now.
