I’m not coping well with Winter these days. January and February finds me brutally depressed, which is kind of the reverse of how things used to be – Winter used to be my favourite season. But the worst part is Winter Fingers. Not cold or chilblains, Winter Fingers just don’t respond properly to the signals i send down my arms.
