Fading daylight

Oh dear, I have been really bad at blogging, haven’t I? I always make all these plans for sharing pictures and then it never happens. My parents just told me they have booked their next holiday to Edinburgh for August next year, and I still haven’t shared my pictures from when they visited in May, uhhh, 5 months ago. It’s still on my list of things to do – I haven’t even managed sorting through them and uploading them to Flickr yet.

To make things a little less boring, I thought I would share one of the pictures I took when we did a boat tour of the Forth back in August. It was absolutely gorgeous, such a lovely day, and it seems to far away now.

In just a few short days, we have our next week off coming up. We fly to Germany on Friday for a whole week. We’ll be dividing the time between Munich and Heidelberg, my hometown and the city where I went to uni. I always wanted to show N. Heidelberg, but it never happened while I still lived in Germany, so we thought this would be a great opportunity. On top of that, I haven’t seen my friends there since January last year, so it is high time for me to pay them a visit. In Munich we are planning to spend our time with my family and friends, and hopefully also get to do some things on our own! I am really excited about seeing everyone back home, and about getting away with N. but at the same time, I am already looking forward to getting back home to our home, here.

On the whole, I have been doing well. Fall has been treating us well and we have had some absolutely gorgeous sunny and warm days. But daylight is fading fast. The sun only just rises when I leave for work and it sets as I am on my way home. By the time I get home, it is already pitch dark. I have never been a fan of the dark season, and being that it is a whole lot darker here, I expect that the lack of daylight will take its toll. That is why I am planning to invest in a SAD light very soon, and let it work its magic.

And now I’ll leave you with the picture of a cow. Because it’s cute.  I hope everyone’s been doing well! I’ll do my best to start posting more regularly again.

  1. Your first photo brought me some really nice memories. I was there about 5 years ago in my first trip completely alone. I don’t remember the name of the town, or even the name of the bridge but I remember the fantastic time I spend there. I love Scotland and I can’t wait to come back some day.

    • Thanks for your comment. The town is called South Queensferry (or North Queensferry on the north side of the Forth). It’s so lovely, isn’t it? I actually didn’t take a lot of pictures of the town itself, maybe an excuse to venture out there again sometime. :)

  2. Have fun in Germany! I can imagine the lack of daylight in Scotland will get to you – I even get that in the Netherlands and that’s not that far north.

    Great pictures by the way!

  3. I have SAD since I moved to Sweden and today I went to light therapy for the first time! It was amazing :) so relaxing, sat with 2 colleagues in sun chairs, it was hot and bright like at the beach on a sunny day. Best way to spend lunch break! I have some really tough deadlines and problems at work now, so i’m totally stressed out. But after that hour i felt relaxed and happy and everything seemed lighter :) don’t know how 1 lamp works, since this was a room with several lamps but i’d say test it! I wish they would give it as prescription since it’s expensive. Luckily we get 150 euros in health money from work that we can invest in gym memberships or towards massage, light therapy and so on. So that pays 70% of a 10 card!
