Rest and recuperationPosted: May 4, 2014
Although the worst of the depressive episode was past by the time we began to get ready to go on the cruise, if I had had the opportunity to cancel and not go, I would have. I really did not fancy having to meet and get to know lots of new people; I just wanted peace and quiet. My wife was sympathetic, but she insisted that we should go as she thought it would do me good to get away.
She was right … and I was wrong.
For the last two weeks we have been cruising to, around, and back from the Western Mediterranean aboard P&O Cruise’s Azura. Other than a brief spell of bad weather, the seas were calm, the sun was bright, and the places we visited were interesting. I will be writing several blog entries about our cruise and two of the places we visited, and they will be appearing sometime over the next week or so.
During the cruise I did nothing that was wargames-related … and as a result I have come back feeling much more positive about the various projects I am currently working on. I have also come back with the realisation that I cannot do everything at once, and that I am going to have to prioritise some of them … but more of that over the coming days and weeks.
