Getting over the winter blues

For the first time in years I didn’t go away anywhere this winter. Which made it seem like winter just went on forever. I don’t care who says Sydney winters are mild – I’m not good in winter at all. Winter for me is like one long episode of PMS, and the longer it goes …

What a wonderful world
