This is what it looks like:
February in Yorkshire (combined with the stresses of the final year of uni) though, that's a whole other matter (I just wrote January here by accident before deleting it and remembering that we're more than half way through February by now... that's saying something about my general feelings at the moment.) There's no chance of any more snow or probably even any more sub-zero temperature days in this neck of the woods - and it's frustrating.
It's been a funny few weeks of ups and downs. I was accepted onto my top choices for Masters programs at SOAS, King's College London and UCL - these were major ups for me (more on this to come).
Last week though, Phillip battled a nasty cold - & I accused him of having a serious case of 'man-flu' - but I spoke too soon. I have it now too, he's feeling mostly back to normal thank goodness, but I'm now on day four. I think perhaps yesterday was my 'peak' day. I'm feeling a little better today, though still feeling rather stuffy and peaky. All my apologies have gone out to Phillip over my man-flu accusations - it's really a pretty nasty little kicker of a pre-spring cold. All in all we've both been knocked out for almost a fortnight and it's reflected in our moods and general spirit.
It's not just us, it seems (and is so) that everyone has a lot of work to do (myself included) and I know a lot of us are feeling pretty wiped out and lacking in energy (or enthusiasm... something along those lines)
So, I'm needing something to pick me back up, a kick or something. (some snow would do the trick, I'm sure of that)
However, looking on the bright side, February is almost over, and I'm hoping there will be some days of productivity to come - that will help all our moods too I should think - we're a house full of busy heads at the moment, but we all have lots of exciting things to look forward to and I know for sure this is just a brief slump!
In order to counteract the lack of 'extreme weather' we get over here in York, out of our kitchen window we are blessed with more often than not, some really beautiful sunsets. Here's a parting one from last week:
More writing (and jolliness) to come soon!
