There really is a disease termed ‘cabin fever’. I know because Bean and I had it this morning. Bean began displaying symptoms by running round the house like a maniac and throwing objects meaninglessly on the floor. It progressed with all our fridge magnets and the photos they hold up being strewn across the house. My symptoms involved being moany and short tempered followed by an incessant need to clean the oven. So, I cleaned the oven, dolled us up in our wellies and braved the rain. We had a lovely little muddy walk, splashed in puddles and squished through muddy grass.
It cured the cabin fever and restored the calm to our abode! We even glimpsed a spot of sun through the rain.
