11: Friday fuel for bouncing back…

9: Banishing Blue Monday


I’m sure that most people will have woken up this morning and read in the paper that today, the third Monday in the month of January, is tarnished with “the most depressing day of the year” brush. To be honest looking outside it’s grey, drizzly, cold and altogether pretty dreary. A man trod on my foot on the tube, a woman proceeded to hit me in the head with her umbrella as I walked to work, and I woke up at 5.58am this morning for no apparent reason whatsoever.

Snow Falls In New York City On First Day Of Spring

Ah, the start of another working week. I remember when I used to work before I did my Masters degree, where I would go to sleep every Sunday evening as early as I could (I used to have to get up at 6.30am just to catch the tube in, and wouldn’t finish until 6.30pm at the earliest).
