 Well, as predicted, Everyone’s Favourite Season has kinda made me lose the will to live blog. This weekend was the first time we’d seen actual sunlight in over a week (not even exaggerating here. For once.) and I’m seriously starting to feel the effects of S.A.D – in fact I’ve made a mental note to dig my S.A.D. lamp out of storage, even although I secretly suspect it doesn’t actually make much of a difference. Even fake light would be better than nothing, though, at this point: I read last week that rickets is starting to make a comeback in the north of Britain due to the lack of sunlight – eek!

Perhaps because of the weather, I’m still feeling the effects of that lurgy I was moaning talking about in my last post, which means I haven’t really been doing much either: I’m in full-on hibernation mode, basically. I mean, we haven’t even gone apple-picking, or to the pumpkin patch, or sipped warm apple cider or done ANY of those classic autumn activities everyone else seems to be doing right now. In fact, I’ll just be honest: any time I wasn’t either working, whining or otherwise feeling sorry for myself last week, I was spending my time in the important activity of rebuilding my Sim house in Sims Social. And no one is ever going to convince me that time was wasted, because seriously, that house is like a palace now.

This weekend the weather is forecast to dip below zero. I think it might be time to think about remodelling my Sim beach house…
