Weather has turned gloomy
I have been feeling bleaurgh today. Dunnawanna[*] has been sitting heavily on me and prevented me from getting much done. I have belatedly realised that though I stopped using the lightbox during the recent brighter weather, however, it's turned gloomy and I need to start using it again. Having to tiptoe around a stressed husband doesn't help either, but only a couple more weeks to go and then it's the end of term and we enter a new phase of life as retired people.

[*] Dunnawanna is a creature dreamed up in one of the Habitica guilds. She is the personification of: "I'm too tired, can't be bothered and I just don't want to do anything today."

Current Mood: blah blah

We get very silly sometimes in the Habitica guilds (chat rooms really). We invent all sorts of ways of distracting Dunnawanna so we can sneak off and get stuff done.

Retirement sounds quite pleasant.

It feels both scary and wonderful at the same time. I'm a bit worried that my husband will miss the students and the interaction with people, but he says he has 5 books to write (non-fiction), so that should keep him occupied and I'm hoping we can have more days out together once the stress and deadlines of the job are behind us.
