The reality is, it’s dark, cold, unpleasant, and no-one enjoys it.

A few years ago, around this time, I started feeling down. I mean really down. I just wanted to curl up and be left alone. I couldn’t concentrate on anything. Reading a book (something which I love doing) was hard work. Actually going to work was no pleasure. I also had a constant headache.

The mornings were brighter, and so was my mood.

Following those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, we’ll now jump forward until the end of the year.
