I kind of want to arrange my life so I can just travel about/go to Spain every winter and just live there for a few months. Brexit won't stop me if it's for just a few months, apart from health insurance issues maybe?? Hm, might have to think this one through. If I worked 100% online, and just did seasonal work in the UK as well, maybe it could work? At the very least, I don't want January and February in the UK. Too much winter. November and December is enough winter for me. And yes, mid November is feckin' winter. 3 degrees outside, dark at 5? That's winter enough. I might as well make the most of not having a career, partner or family by living somewhere warmer and lighter in the winter. I feel like I've had enough winter in my life to last the rest of my life. I get SADdy, the energy bills would pay for some time abroad... must get my light box out.

^ Me too. I used to know someone who would work contracts all summer and save up enough money to spend the winter in Southeast Asia doing nothing. That sounds perfect to me. If I didn't have to pay a mortgage I would do the same.

I hate winter. I feel like the state of my mental health is entirely dependent on the amount of sunshine I get.

It's not that I like the winter weather, but I'm glad to lose the heat and light of the summer, both of which make me anxious in public.

That does sound good. Maybe I should go for it. Ideally I'd want to earn something. It's weird, I have problems planning to do nothing for several months. But I can end up getting next to nothing done easily.

I like the 11 things listed in affluenza's link above.

I like to brighten things up with clean windows, red candles, polished silver and brass and furniture, a bowl of oranges and other fruit, any flowers I can find.

In recent years I've been spending a week away, just after the shortest day, at a location 800 miles closer to the equator which is a very cheering thing to look forward to, to experience and to look back on
