Not sure what is going on with the weather at the moment but this pretty much sums it up!!

Bring back the sunshine
I have had this feeling of impending doom for quite a while now. No matter what I do I just can’t shake it. The weather here in Melbourne is cold and wet and miserable and it pretty much sums up everyones mood of late.
I have one friend grieving the sudden loss of her husband. One friend coming to terms with a terminally ill nephew and now the possiblity of fighting cancer herself.
My mother-in-law is unwell, my father-in-law is showing early signs of memory loss. Dexter is still not better, I took him out on a test walk yesterday and even though we only went around the block by the end of the walk he was limping.
Then today the icing on the cake was when one of our most difficult clients ever called this morning and created chaos in his usual arrogant and loathful manner.
This client is a pathological lier, he starts off all nice and friendly and the minute things dont go his way, he turns into this horrible bully who tries to intimidate and abuse with his vulgarity. The mere mention of his name is enough ruin our day. In the span of half an hour he called 7 times this morning.
I am hoping that the weather is what is causing this bad feeling and that once the sun is back warming us with its happy rays, this feeling of doom will dissolve.
Winter is my least favourite season of the year. Cold dark nights and wet and windy days are not my idea of fun at all.
This year winter appears to have set in earlier than ever. Technically we have only just embarked on the last month of Autumn, and yet it already feels like hibernation time. In a another life I could totally have been a bear. The whole idea of sleeping through winter appeals to me on so many levels.
Unfortunately most boy sports are actually winter sports, so tonight I will be braving the elements as I sit and wait for my son to finish his soccer training. Once he is finished I will rush him home only to pick up the other son who also has basketball training tonight.
Luckily last years Mother’s Day gift from my daughter was a cute travel mug which I plan on taking along with me tonight. I think a nice steaming cup of tea is just what is in order.
