Glad to say that it didn’t turn out to be that ridiculously named and commercially inspired ‘blue’ Monday today. Some dastardly folk tried to tell us that this would be the most depressing day of the year, just to inspire us to spend money to make ourselves feel better. For me, it was a thoroughly uplifting day. After work, I got to relax in heat, steam and ice – using a spa voucher given to me by my lovely friend and boss. I suppose it was an expenditure of someone’s money, but it wasn’t because of a gloomy winter feeling. It was in fact the realisation of a Christmas gift and the celebration of a year of toils and happy working friendships.
It’s a sociable and treat-filled day for thewintermoodproject as Chris is, I believe, out enjoying splendid live music as I type. You see we don’t always do our winter activities outdoors. That said, the weather today showcased the very best of what January can offer: bright, crisp, cold with a glorious hard frost to start.
It was actually a blue sky Monday.
