I'm also choosing to be positive, which was difficult to do earlier cos work was unpleasant and stressful and all I wanted to do was pack it all in and go live in a cottage by the sea. A cottage by the sea with excellent internet and TV signal of course.
It felt quite autumnal when I got up this morning, by which I mean it was misty and chilly. I took Tormund for a walk after work and it had warmed up a lot. Some of the leaves are showing signs of turning but most of them are still very green. I suppose it is still early days so I can't expect too much yet! I look forward to seeing them change as the season goes on though.
My two staples of autumnal TV, Strictly and Bake Off, have both started again now. I don't know who I'm supporting in either show yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before I find some favourites to latch on to. As well as Oti, of course, who I will always love.
Speaking of TV, I've been too busy recently to watch the latest episodes of Lower Decks so I have about four of them to catch up on. That's quite nice, actually, cos it means I have a good amount to enjoy. Something I noticed when I was watching the first season was how great it was having new episodes to look forward to. As much as I like the comforting familiarity of re-watching things I've seen before, I have missed the excitement of not knowing what's going to happen next and the anticipation of finding out.
Taskmaster starts tomorrow, which is something else I'm looking forward to. I also have the book Bring Me the Head of the Taskmaster, which contains clues to solve to locate a replica Taskmaster head. I probably won't be the one to find it, but I still want to try. I've got 26/100 just on my first quick readthrough, so hopefully I'll be able to solve a few more when I have the chance to sit down and work at it properly.
