I've let the weather get to me this year, which has really messed with my head.

Several reasons -
I've just started a new job and timing was such that I haven't been able to get a summer holiday. First time in about 25 years I haven't had a break in the school holiday.
My cycling time is limited and its difficult if I have time to go and its bucketing down.
I'm trying to do some work visits/ appointments by bike and dont have the whole sweat/ clothes thing cracked yet. Rain makes it doubly difficult - to the point that it looks as though I might have to get a car for work use.

So the worst weather I can remember has coincided with me feeling more grumpy and discombobulated than usual.

You got soaked as well riding home yesterday?

Absolutely drenched last night and I sheltered for about 40 minutes at Over station to let the worst monsoon part pass. Beautiful double rainbow though, a full unbroken half circle North to South so a pot of gold at each end :laugh:.
