Sunshine affects mood

Isn’t it funny how the sunshine can affect our moods? I feel like a million dollars today. The sun is out and it’s warm, I feel like I could do anything.

Bubs is happy, I have put laundry on, cleaned the kitchen, taken out the rubbish, visited the gym I am going to join and tided up a bit. Most chores I did while he was asleep and I just whizzed around with time to spare.

I even opened the windows! If you know me, opening the windows is a huge deal that rarely happens as I never think it is warm enough.

For the first time in a long time I haven’t had a snack and am waiting until lunchtime to eat.

I just think it’s funny how my mood changes when the sun is out, I feel I have a lot more energy, less lethargic and like i have more time to do things.

I remember when I lived in Sydney, the days were long (sunrise at 5am, sunset at around 9-10pm) and it felt like you could do things after work, like hang out at the beach with a coffee, or gym, or run or just enjoy being outside. I miss those days, I really do.

I’ve been talking a lot about balancing life and other things, and how difficult it is, but it does seem like when the sun is out I can achieve anything.

When its grey and miserable, I feel grey and miserable. I also notice squidge is a little more fussy. Today he’s been very content, wanting cuddles from mummy and generally happy to potter about with me.

I’m excited to be going out for a walk later, as the weather says it is going to be 15 degrees! For me that’s not super warm, but it’s a hell of a lot warmer than snow!
