The weather's starting to get colder. If I were a bear, I could sleep through the whole winter. Maybe I am slightly ursine, as I really, really want to sleep through the whole winter!
Temperature affects me a lot. In summer I can't sleep without the air conditioner. In winter, I just don't want to get out of bed. I'm incredibly tired and my joints are hurting. The pain deep down in my hips is incredible.
The housework's well and truly behind - dishes building up in the sink, dirty clothes overflowing the washing basket, but I just don't have the energy to deal with it. Summer saps my energy and leaves me with an incredible fatigue, winter aggravates my aches and pains - and I still end up tired because it's just so much harder to do anything.
