Last week I'd had it up to here. There is only so much soldiering on I can do so I took myself to see the doc.
As I have now learned, Aussies who are in the UK for their first winter might as well have a flu named after them; it's so common. "Oh yes another Aussie, you look very pale" she said to me. No kidding the sun virtually doesn't exist here and even when it does shine it hardly cuts through the Arctic breeze. "Your vitamin D levels are rock bottom." Again I blame your lack of sunshine. "I think you're run down and doing too much." Forgive me if I have a seize-the-day-you-only-live-once attitude. I've never been the kind of person to take a break.
Long story short I left with a list of vitamins as long as my arm and a countdown to today, because now it's official and all I can say is... thank god it's spring! I can already feel myself stirring from my wintery stupor - here's what I'm looking forward to...
And finally... not being sick. See ya later winter.
