29 July 2013 by

So you’re back from your holiday. Yesterday, your only worry was how many delicious meals out you could squeeze into one day. Today, you’re washing everything in sight and mourning that last sweet, sweet mojito like it was your last. Once you’ve lived like a sun-Queen for a couple of weeks, life is mundane. And what’s more, helpfully, your mind seems to forget all normal functions (like how to dress when a bikini and a pair of shorts isn’t an appropriate option) in lieu of more important things like tanlines. They call it the post-holiday blues. Here’s ten signs you’re suffering…

10. Wine and reminiscing over holiday snaps are the only two things you look forward to now. That, and planning your next getaway. And you probably need one after all the stress of coming home.
