So far this January has been
Considerably milder than usual
Not too bad considering the dark and cold
A serious encouragement to move to warmer climes
Not sure, I've been sleeping through most of it
A mixture of good and bad, as always
A mixture of frost and sleet, as always
A good excuse to stay indoors with the cat/a box-set/a pile of blankets
I refuse to beleive in the existance of January and am heading straight to spring
The best cure for the January blues is:
Food, glorious food (should contain suet or veggie option)
Buying shiny things in the sales
Going for walks/runs to blow away the cobwebs and look for signs of spring
Going on holidays, planning holidays, or having long involved fantasies about holidays you could go on
Wearing natty coats, hats and gloves - cold days are a fashion opportunity!
Telly, internet, music, book, comics - on repeat until the world is worth going out into
The cats and the kittens, the kittens and the cats, the cats wear hats and the kittens wear mittens
Another things which I will say below
The very best cure for the January blues is this:
Oh Pilot, you one-hit wonders. Stop cracking up right in the middle of the mime!
Oh Barbara, the hair! The coat! The lights! Ms Dickson, you are 1000% star.
As ever, any further thoughts about January, hilarious stories of grim dark days, spirited defences of crisp frosty mornings - please take to the comments.
