The colour Grey

October has been a grey and dreary month. I am missing the summer…so badly. The past few weeks, it has felt as if Canterbury is just one big wet cloud…today more than ever! I can’t remember the last day that the sun shone.

(I don’t know if I’ve ever said on here, but I am pretty much glass half-empty/pessimistic kinda gal. More like Eeyore and Piglet, than Tigger and Roo, if you’re an A.A. Milne fan)

Having near constant grey and dismal-ness, epic amounts of rain, waking up and it being dark outside, and that weird temperature where if you don’t wear a coat you’re too cold, but if you do wear a coat you’re too warm…it all makes me feel a little bit inclined to curl up in my bed and hibernate until Spring.

Don’t even get me started on the fact that the clocks are changing soon so I’ll be driving to work, and driving home, in the darkness. It’ll probably rain as well.

Can you tell that it’s getting me down a bit?

I think Autumn is my least favourite season; where Summer is over but it’s too soon to really get excited about Christmas. I love it least when it’s a damp and miserable Autumn. It wouldn’t be so bad if it were just cold, it’s the constant rain!

Autumn can be beautiful…but unfortunately my current Autumn comes from a completely different colour pallet.

I shouldn’t complain so much, really. We do need the rain, and other countries pray & pray for rainfall like we get…but it’s really hard to look on the bright side of life when all you see is grey 😦
