Dark and empty


For some reason by the time I'd had dinner tonight the house felt dark and empty. I don't know if it's the dark, the occasional rumble of thunder or being in two evenings in a row. If it's the first thing, then that's not going to get better until March when we go back to leaving work in the light (this is the last week of leaving work in the light). If it's the last then next week won't go well, being as it's half term and I'm not going out a single evening.

I got Spotify out and put some music on it while I wrote. Which was surprisingly hard - I was used to doing everything while listening to music because it was better than listening to my upstairs neighbour's TV. And then I moved and it's quiet enough that most of the time I can't hear anything. Except for the trains when it's really quiet.

I'd go and see Ender's Game next week, as Tuesdays are cheap nights at the cinema, but it's either on so early I can't get there in time or so late I'm liable to fall asleep halfway through. So it'll have to wait.

What I do need to spend next week doing is writing and trying to get through the last few things on my PVR. I'm down to two films, a documentary and two radio programmes. Plus By Any Means, which I only just started watching last week. And now I've done some writing tonight, I am off to watch some.

I often feel like that in autumn and winter.

I'm so glad it's not just me. I think it being dark and therefore not being able to see anything outside doesn't help with that.

I feel the same way during the beginning of autumn (usually around the time when I start coming home in the dark), then my body adjusts to the constant artificial light and I stop noticing it until it starts to get lighter.

As long as it gets better that'll do me.
