The third week of January is known to be the most depressing week of the year. This week I was suffering from a complete lack of energy: after work I only was able to watch some TV and even then I managed to fall asleep on the couch. The weather was really dark, grey and rainy on Monday and Tuesday but fortunately improved a bit on Wednesday. I am busy at work, and the new secretary is hard working and a fun girl, so I shouldn't complain too much. It doesn't help that I don't have any travel plans and all the friends are planning trips and sending me e-mails with itineraries etc.
Once I retire I really should make sure that I am away from here between October and March!
