S.A.D. to say...


The forecast for the next near week goes something like, 19, 20, 20, 21, 21, 20... Apparently after that we'll have rain. This is where I have to admit that I'm honestly NOT looking forward to it raining. In a week's time, or ever!

We haven't had much of an Indian Summer this year. There was a cold snap mid-March and since then it's been mostly cool to down-right freezing, and I've suffered for it.

I felt so very UP today! Why? Because there was sun and yes, even warmth! I felt like a got quite a lot done (no, not housework, but other useful stuff, yk, like WRITING)... For once in a long while, I didn't feel like crawling into bed with a big, never-ending mug of hot chocolate...

If re-incarnation, as hindus see it, is real, then I swear I must have been a bear in my past life. Every Autumn, all I want to do, is find a nice dark, warm cave, crawl in, shut it off from the inside and sleep, sleep, sleep... The daylight of Winter feels harsh to me, it's a kind of blue light that turn my mood equally blue...

So, please excuse me if I don't join the chorus for more rain, however much we need it, I just want to be ignorant and wish for endlessly sunny, mild Winter days until Spring arrives in late September...

And I really need it to be pleasant next week as my mum is away and I won't get a break :P. I see picnics and beaches in our future!

Singing it with you sister!

Am finding the walk to school in the morning in the bright sunshine is enough to get me through atm, even being housebound the rest of the day. May be cold but the sun on my face gives me hope yk?

Am not looking forward to the dark days ahead either.
