  • Mood:

Perhaps it's the weather?

I've felt rather blah this week and tireder than I should have from the exertions of the weekend. I had stopped using the lightbox, but I got it out again this morning and will resume eating my breakfast in front of it until the days are brighter.

The weather may be to blame. Well, it's definitely not helping. The sky is a dull, flat grey. No good for photography. Also I have too many deadlines looming and I'd planned to spend the week writing, which I have not done. :(

The day perked up a little this afternoon when my routine check-up at the dentist did not reveal anything that needed treating. Hurrah! So after a clean and polish, I popped up to the vets to arrange for Aimee to have whatever injections cats need to enable them to go outside without catching horrible diseases. I will be taking her in tomorrow morning for the first batch of shots. I will also get them to look at her mouth because she has a canine tooth missing from the bottom. It doesn't seem to affect her and it probably happened years ago, but I thought it was worth getting it checked. She has a little nick in one ear too, so heaven knows what she's been up to in the past.

From the vets' surgery, I walked up to the Somerfield. I normally shop in the Co-op, but I've started looking in Somerfield occasionally because they have some different things. Due to general blahness of mood, I came away with chocolate & vanilla cheesecake portions, cream and jam doughnuts and chocolate raisins. I did also buy some humus, tomatoes, milk, cheese and soya milk, but the splurge on cakes indicates that I'm into comfort eating mode again. This is not good!

Still behind on processing photos, but must get back to the essay. There will be photos of beaches and cats in due course.
