G pointed out last night that yesterday was three months to Christmas Day. How is that possible?? Mind you the weather has taken a turn for the worst. I looked out the window before I set off fro work on Monday because I could hear how windy it was. Not only windy, but also pouring with rain. There has definitely been sunshine over the last couple of days, but also rain… I know it’s almost October but I still feel hard done by and am refusing to put my heating on until we have had a proper summer (I suspect I will relent on this in the next day or so…).
This change in the weather is also not great for my new fitness regime, which basically consists of trying to go for a walk on my lunch breaks. Maybe 30 minutes or so, as many times as I can a week. I think if I only do this in good weather then I won’t be able to continue with this until next year, by which time I may have become a beached whale. For a few years I used to go for a walk every lunch time and then when things went wrong with A I stopped, but now is the time to try and reinstitute it (but with routes that avoid possibly bumping into each other, as much as is possible). I’m not sure I’ll be able to go for a walk every day, but every little helps, as they say and doing something when I can is better than doing nothing at all.
I think some of the reason I have been feeling a bit down this week is that sometimes I think deep down I am just not a very nice person. When I am tired and worn out, I am just a bit of a grumpy old git and it makes me wonder if the rest of the time I am just able to keep it in check because I have the energy to do so! I know it must be a shock to you to realise that I am not sweetness and light all the time, but it’s better that you know the truth now. I’m sure you’ll get over it and if not well, do you want to have an argument about it? Well do you?
