Monday, January 24, 2005


It was interesting to read that the last Monday of January (this year 24th) has been voted the most depressing day of the year. I realise Christmas, with all its family get togethers and presents and arguements is long past. As are all the New Year festivities and hangovers. Next comes the January Sales and with what little money one has left, it is a free for all trying to find a bargain. If you have no money left you get depressed, so you either buy on credit and have huge debts to pay off and that makes you more depressed. There are still a few days till Pay Day and there is hardly anything left in the freezer, and far worse nothing to drink causing more depression. All your New Year's resolutions have gone by the board. If you want to go to the Doctor for a friendly chat, they are full up and can only see you 1st week in February, this makes you mad and more depression sets in. If you put the T.V. on all you get is doom and gloom, with politicians promising you the world (election time anyway) and T.V. Advertisements showing your all sorts of things you would like, and cant have. And finally the most depressing thing of all are all the Holidays being advertised to far away places which are nice and warm, while you are fighting the elements of frost, wind and snow. Days are short and its very cold, and it seems ages till Spring will arrive.

Everyone all together now "Aaaaaaaawwwwwwww"!!!!

I see that day is today - Am feeling fine - How about You?

But Hey! Spring does arrive every year with all the new growth on the trees and shrubs. Birds making their nests, and their babies are born. Hundreds of tiny frolicking lambs out in the fields. Everything is green again and new life abounds everywhere. After Winter, Spring garden bulbs shoot up and they are just a mass of colour in lilac, white, purple and yellow. Then daffodils cover the landscape followed by all the different colours of tulips.

It's a Wonderful World.
