On days like this, everything seems heavier than it normally is - my legs, my heart, my soul and even the light. There must be some scientific explanation for it but, life seems that little bit duller and less exciting.

Thank Christ it is Friday and I am finishing early to get out into the darkened wilderness on my bike and then going for a curry tonight. Frickin Brilliant.

Sod the weather, let's rock:biggrin:


Just call me Chris...
Amen to that :blush:

Ever heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder?

SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is a type of winter depression that affects an estimated half a million people every Winter between September and April, in particular during December, January and February.

It is caused by a biochemical imbalance in the hypothalamus due to the shortening of daylight hours and the lack of sunlight in winter.

For many people SAD is a seriously disabling illness, preventing them from functioning normally without continuous medical treatment.

For others, it is a mild but debilitating condition causing discomfort but not severe suffering. We call this subsyndromal SAD or 'winter blues.'

It's quite warm where I am in West Berkshire. I've got all the windows, including the french windows open.
Not even the suggestion of any sun though.
Just makes the pleasures of being outside on your bike a little harder to find.
