There’s something about returning to work after the Christmas/New Year break that’s more depressing than going back after other holidays.
Part of it is suddenly having to start getting out of bed when it’s still dark, after nearly two weeks of quite sensibly staying in bed until it’s light enough to see my way to the Gaggia. Then there’s the knowledge that what with one thing and another, the next chance for more than one or two days off will be Easter, and that’s nearly three months away. And then there’s the weather. This morning, I am being treated to high winds and lots of rain, so I’ll probably have to get the bus to work, which I do prefer to avoid.
Still, it has to be done. At least it’s only a four day week….
