So how was it for you? Apparently today was the most depressing day of the year. The day when your supposed to have fluffed on the diet, realise you did in fact spend far too much over Christmas and want to hide under the duvet for the rest of the winter with a mahooosive bar of chocolate. We are a nation that lives with the rain but secretly would love an affair with the Caribbean. Blue Monday I think though is a clever marketing ploy by holiday companies and in my case handbag shops to make you think you are feeling blue and that a bit of retail therapy would just do the trick. Go on, bet you know someone who's just gone and booked an all inclusive and bought swimwear to match. For me it would be the dream handbag, sitting on a shelf like a prestigious award, waiting to be presented. My Oscar! And the award goes to Sue for her performance in 'Handbags and Gladrags'......then I wake up, realise I'm in Tesco and get offered a rather nice but disappointing 'bag for life'.
It's been rainy, dark and dismal today but I didn't feel too down, the worst thing that happened today was realising I couldn't eat a packet of Monster Munch, they are not Gluten Free!!! Can you believe it? I think last week was more depressing with a full moon and Friday 13th, that was a bit of bad organisation for the earthlings. For some it is a blue day every day, I know how that feels, I've suffered depression on and off myself. That is one of the reasons for writing a blog, I wanted to try and write a bit of light and pass it onto people, and if I make just one person chuckle a bit I like to think that's my job done. So today I'm actually going to kick Blue Monday's bottom (kick it's ass) and look towards a Tip Top Tuesday! Who's with me? See you on the other side.
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
