The clocks go back this weekend and I for one don’t welcome the darker nights. There’s something quite depressing about leaving work at 6pm to find that it’s already dark. But it’s not all doom and gloom. After all of the business and personal travel this summer, we’re back into our routine of work, nursery, study and family. And it feels good. It sounds a bit fusty but I like routines and the sense of order and comfort they bring. In that sense, freelancing isn’t a good option for me, but the good news is, I tend to fall into routines quickly – my route to work, my lunch roster, the best coffee spots and the best route to J’s nursery.
