  • As the rain set in in the South East of England this week, I've been getting a bit anti-social. It's not that I don't enjoy the rain, I often do, but right now everyone around me seems a little bit stressed, and more than a little dampened in mood. My own mood has been awkward and sullen and I haven't had much time for people or wanted to do much or go anywhere.

    In short, I've found myself in the doldrums. I think perhaps the only way out of them is to gather my courage, a stout raincoat, and to stride out boldly to seek an adventure!

    There has to be some sunshine and sunny people somewhere in this city of mine!
