Gloomy Sunday

In the Bible, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights and the earth was turned into a waterworld. By my calculations, it has now been raining for 51 days at a stretch, and I imagine I know exactly how Noah and his family must have felt all cooped up in their little Ark. Already, our Met have declared this the 'wettest summer since 1930', and it doesn't seem as if there'll be an end in sight any time soon.

I wouldn't mind, only...the leaden skies depress me; and when I'm depressed, I tend to eat far more chocolate than is good for me, which leads to me no longer fitting comfortably in my trousers; which fact would lead to even more depression, except that I have a plan: I'll go on a diet as soon as my contract expires. There's no point of going on one now as there's cake almost every other day at work, as the Sales department always seem to have something to celebrate: if it isn't the opening of a new shop in-shop or store in-store or some record-breaking deal, it'll be somebody's birthday. Which means I'm already racking my brains as to what treats I'm going to bring into the office in a fortnight, when it'll be mine. I do hope it'll stop raining then, if only for the day...

Months of rain? Definitely a downer.

But remember. At least you have no ark-poo to shovel!

Well yes, that IS a very big plus! Thanks!

*hugs* We had one of the wettest springs on record, although it's been horribly hot and dry for a while. So, I can understand how days of rain affect your mood.

Days of rain, and all the horrible stuff one hears in the news these days, makes one wonder why one bothers...until one comes here and feels oneself understood! ;-)

That sounds even worse than the weather over here, and even that is making me depressed. Not asking for a heatwave, either, but a few weeks of dry and warm weather before autumn would be really lovely.

Good dieting plan, though! ;)

OMG I am SO SICK of the relentless grey and rain that we've had here the last two winters. And summer wasn't that great either, as summers go. I honestly don't know how much more I can take and if next winter isn't less miserable, I'm going to have to insist we move away from Melbourne.

And okay it's winter here, you should expect rain, and I do, but the relentless cloud when it's not raining is just making me miserable.

So I completely identify with your depression. I just hope all that brilliant Dutch engineering and drainage is holding up. :)
