S.A.D

I find this time of the year very depressing I hate the dreary dull days of winter. Having to keep a light on for most of the day makes it feel like night. In the past I have used daylight light bulbs but I'm not sure if they helped. I could quite easily hibernate, like our tortoises. When I was working I had to motivate myself but now I can be really lazy, and I am always looking for comfort foods and in fact I was really naughty today, finding a few squares of chocolate caramel bar in my cupboard they were in my mouth before I even considered taking a photo for Sam's challenge. I think this choc had been there for months so would have soon been stale, well that's what I am telling myself. I have now taken a photo of the wrapping and I'm owning up in public so I feel that's ok.

Anyone who has read my previous posts will be aware that this year I have been very lucky as I've had several holidays since I retired. Having only just got back from Dublin I am fortunate enough to off to Spain tomorrow and I'm hoping a good dose of sunshine will help me through until the new year. Beccy will be publishing a special post, already drafted, on Sunday which I hope you will read. I will see you all in December when I will be in a real panic with only three weeks leading up to Christmas.
