I've no real reason to be, I got given a permanent contract at work on Friday and I went on a date which although probably not the future Mrs Rocket was the first in a while that I've kinda enjoyed. But I just feel low. The stupid thing is I think one of the things that is exacerbating all my other feelings is that the other day I left a nice scarf which was a present last Christmas on the bus. It's really pissed me off and has heightened my feelings about the things that actually matter which are troubling me. It's such a ****ing stupid thing to allow to snowball my mood!
I HATE losing things, especially things that I like, as you did, with that scarf.
It's a good shout by DL & he should know. Fingers crossed that it's at the garage, when you go there, but as you say, someone with greater need, may now be very grateful to have it.
Of course, IF you know where it was bought AND they still make that one, you can always buy another.
As said before, Christmas started building up from probably, the beginning of October?! & then got bigger & bigger & bigger, built up into this wonderful, happy time, ahead of us....which was then over, in a bleedin' flash, as it always is. And now we're in cold, dark, gloomy, long January & probably suffering withdrawals from missing alcohol, nice food or whatever else we recently, overindulged in.
However, and you wisely touched on it, it's not losing the scarf in itself, it's that it's been more, 'the last straw', on top of other stuff in your life that has probably been there, nagging away at you, for much longer.
The scarf has just reminded you as to what's really bugging you. Not that you probably needed reminding...
