Life? Don't talk to me about life.
Not having much fun right now. Seasonal affective disorder is kicking my butt and I have about as much energy as an insomniac sloth. I need to get a lightbox to help, but there are too many different types for me to be happy just ordering one from the net. And I'm TOO TIRED to do research to find out which one would be best for me :/

I also need to get our boiler fixed because it doesn't work. Took me 40 minutes today and a lot of swearing and hitting the thing to get enough hot water for a bath. Richard was supposed to have sorted it out while I was away a month or so ago, but when I got back he insisted it was better. Now he's away in Florida and it's almost completely dead. Getting boilers fixed requires a) finding someone who's heard of our apparently strange and esoteric boiler and b) getting up early enough in the day to phone them. This isn't happening because I need to sleep for 12 hours a day or more.

Some interesting and fun stuff has been happening but I haven't had enough energy to enjoy it properly, let alone write about it.

Please send spoons.

For a bit my hot water heater was leaking onto itself and required a manual lighting before showers.

The landlord just got ours replaced (it was so old, the person who came to replace it wasn't aware anyone still used it).

I know, I know, I am talking about me...

I've suddenly realised how much I am affected by the season. In the space of a few weeks my exercise has gone from "walking through three London parks a day" to "I can't be bothered to walk to Tescos because of the weather".

And of course with the reduction of exercise I get a small lowering of mood too.


I will point out that even if you didn't enjoy the fun stuff that much at least you went and participated. That has to be a good thing - keep it up.

*Gives you a bundle of spoons and hugs* I have excess.

You should ask someone to help you choose one of these lightboxes (even though I'm not 100% sure what they are). It might help elevate a bit of your stress and get one to you faster.

Are you all alone there with Richard gone? If so, that most not be helping either. All the best with getting the boiler fixed. I know how annoying/upsetting a broken one can be x.x
