This morning my mood is matching the weather. It's dark and gloomy, and a bit damp.
It's the time of year where social activities are everywhere and for the first year in my life I'm being a bit of a hermit. It's not that I don't want to do anything but I don't want to be the sober companion to all the drunkards.
It's not the alcohol I'm missing, it's that happy, social, festive atmosphere. The affection and care everyone shows each other. Sitting home on your own drinking tea just doesn't cut it. Nor does waking up on your own knowing your other half will return at some point in the day hungover and no good to anyone for another 24 hours.
It's a bit dark in here. Time for a new light bulb. The weekend is ahead of me and I have lots to do. *flicks the switch*
