3.30itis, mid afternoon slump, low circadian rhythm. Call it what you will, it hit me hard this afternoon. After hours of reading procedural documents and reviewing detailed items, I found myself standing at the office door wondering why it wouldn't open - till I remembered it isn't an automatic door and I was going to have to open it myself. It might be ok if I was new, but I've worked in this office on and off for about 5 years.
I determined that a walk and some sugar was required. I headed out into the cool, fresh day. We might be headed for the second coldest May on record in Canberra but today is quite pleasant and a quick walk through the chilled but not cold, refreshing air was much appreciated.
Sugar came in the form of a rather decadently large piece of chocolate caramel slice. I could have taken a photo, but I just ate it. All. In one go. I'm quite fussy about chocolate caramel slice as I make a fantastic one (very similar to this one), however it was very good, with a deliciously sticky caramel filling.
Thus revived, I returned to the office now functioning at a level where I could once again operate a door.
