Smile - it's blue Monday!

I've just opened my curtains. Only a little because I don’t really want to see outside. Its grey out there, very grey and its raining. Not heavy exciting rain, not light showery rain, but a steady pitta-patta which looks as if it’s here to stay. I’ve just turned off the news channel . There is so much bad news today. Fuel prices, interest rates, extreme weather – it goes on and on. The last thing I heard didn’t surprise me. It seems that today, the third Monday of January is officially the most depressing day of the year.It's blue Monday.

I’m off to work now. I’ve got a long drive on rain soaked roads to get there. When I get there everyone will be miserable, customers and staff. I don’t suppose I’ll do much business.

But let’s look on the bright side! In about fifteen hours time the most depressing day of the year will be behind us for another twelve months! Having said that I’ve just seen tomorrows weather forecast and its much the same as today’s. But at least it won’t be the third Monday of January! 


  1. mmmm, have a good blue monday then too! at least there are only 49 left in the year....

  2. Keith defy the day! Change it up, out wit blue Monday! Do something a new book, take yourself out to dinner, call a friend, go to the pub after work.Put on your favorite opera and sing along. Do something to commemorate this day as not so blue!! Don't let the world dictate how you will feel...prove it wrong!!
    Happy Monday to you, and Tuesday and so on and so on!!

    Hugs From Canada!

  3. Yes, at least it won't be the third Monday of January. I like the Pollyanna approach, so ... you can be glad about that! :o)

  4. It's raining here too but at least it's cooler now.
