and I do mean miserable – I just wanted to stay curled up with jack under the duvet this morning – and as for taking him out for a walk – it was the last thing on my mind 🙁

I keep thinking of those thomas cook adverts – you know the ones – it’s time to leave the country. I realised that I have not had a holiday since Sydney and Singapore in March and I desperately need to see the sun and laze on a beach and see new things meet new people laze and doze.

I’m also thinking of taking a few months off for seasonal adjustment syndrome…

we talked about that in the office actually… I think I need to get some high wattage natural daylight bulbs for the flat to prevent this slide into depression I feel is washing over me like another torrential downpour.

Maybe I should go and join a tanning salon?
