Apparently today is the known as “Blue Monday” as it’s supposed to be the most depressing day of the year – according to all those scientists out there who have nothing better to do with their time – I wish I had their job!
It’s said to be that way as it’s the third Monday in January, and Christmas & New Year celebrations have all but disappeared off the horizon now, and for most they are in need of their next wage, added to that is that the weather’s rubbish too, with miserable looking black clouds hanging in our skies.
Most of those New Year resolutions have also all probably failed by now – I know mine did, and with those rising petrol prices, it seems everyone is against us right now – when is the next Fuel Prices Protest Day by the way?
So, what will you be doing on this Blue Monday apart from humming the tune to that excellent New Order song from the 80s and doing the old drum machine bit from it too – you just have to do that don’t you? (electric 80s at its best!)
Well for most the day will of course be spent in the office again, looking at the clock on the bottom right of the computer urging it speed up as much as possible as the countdown begins to the end of the day!
I think we should all think of something positive to do today, and do it at lunchtime so that it breaks the day up nicely – so for me I’m off into town at lunch today, maybe a McDonalds is called for – a treat for the start of the week!
Let’s get through this day of depression together!!!
