S.A.D

Hello friends

Welcome to new follower Maggie from Flowers in the Window.

For the past couple of weeks or so I have been feeling progressively down and this morning I realised why. I've been hit with S.A.D..  Usually it hits around February time but this year it's hit early.

What is S.A.D? I hear you gently whisper. It stands for, Seasonal Affective Disorder you can find out more here.

When I think about the awful weather we have had this year I'm not surprised that S.A.D has hit early, more rain and dull days than sunshine. What am I going to do to get through it?  Well, I don't want to go to the Dr's who will prescribe anti depressants and no way can I afford the special light box so the next best thing it to get out into the sunshine as and when it appears and brainwash myself with lots of positive thoughts.

Today was meant to be a sunny day (it tried hard to get through the hazy clouds), So whilst L was out with her friend M and I  went for a walk along the promenade from the Norbreck Castle Hotel to Gynn Square. Approximately 2 miles. It was a lovely walk and I took some pictures to show you (below). I have lived on this coast all my life but never walked this bit, I've always walked up the top by the road passed the hotels and posh houses. We enjoyed our walk but I don't feel any better, not to worry positive thoughts (soon be spring)and where's that chocolate box hehehehe.

 
 
 
 
 
Hope you all have a good weekend

    1. I got cabin fever once when L was a baby. I had been stuck in the house for nearly a week because of the rain and I'd had enough. I made sure L was nice and warm and would stay dry in her pram and went out. I got saoked but felt much better for getting out.

  2. Hopefully such lovely views and the walk was a tonic.

  3. It has seemed like an exceptionally dark November this year. I don't know why. But this year I have kept the clock in our bedroom on summer time and actually that gives more light in the morning. Whether the effects of that are just psychological, I don't know!

  4. Hi Jenny Wolf
    I think you are right, November has been rather dark and it's hardly stopped raining. Today it's sunny though. Yeah
