Oojo and Bink, episode 35: Dark.
Like Oojo, I've been struggling a bit with the dark evenings recently. Normally I'd go for a walk on the beach or in the woods after work, but not when it's dark.
I find myself looking at the clock in the living room with disbelief as I close the curtains and contemplate how many hours there are before bed. It feels like 9 or 10pm, when actually it's 5pm. It makes me feel sleepy.
So I'm quite glad that I recently joined a fitness/dance class with my girlfriend. Once a week we jump around a brightly-lit hall to music, and come home buzzing with energy, and dreams of being on Strictly.
I've been told that the shortest day of the year is 21st December. So in less then a month, the evenings will start to get lighter. Yesss!
