So, is it Blue Monday for you? Or are you actually feeling quite chirpy really?

It is, apparently, the most depressing day of the year today: Blue Monday.

But how are you all feeling? Do tell...

Well I decided to go for my first ever bra fitting on my lunchbreak at the grand old age of 36.

I went in a 38B and left a 34 DD which has <coughs> perked me up abit.

Got great bit of news at work about a colleague so it has been a good day!

Good day sledging. DS and I are happy. DH came home in a foul mood.

I've been really miserable today. I think thats because I had two hours sleep on DS's floor last night though, not because it's Blue Monday.

Been more of a bonkers Monday here. Everywhere I've looked I've encountered bonkersness. Been quite fun actually.

Felt shite this morning and most of the day but feeling mighty fine now and happy as a clam :-)

Happy as a clam? Did you read my post?wink

I've been pretty miserable really. Some work related concerns, combined with disturbed sleep and the back end of my cycle. It's all fairly grim.

Crappish day at work on top of bad night's sleep but 5lb loss at SW made up for it tonight.

Really quite blue, rough couple of months with mc in nov. shitty weekend topped off by my husbands grandfather dying. So pleased to be going to sleep now, tomorrows a new day and all that.

That is very odd, I have felt utterly depressed today. I have all the usual reasons to be miserable (I hate my job, awful family, money etc) but it all seemed much worse today. So yes, blue monday - although more black than blue, blue is a bit American for me.

I've felt utterly depressed and blue today - so it's a blue Monday for me. And I'm not usually down like this. I'm looking forward to starting again with a brand new day tomorrow.

thesnootyfox Mon 21-Jan-13 22:31:57

Definitely blue Monday here. sad

I'm chirpy! (But only because school is closed because of snow grin) Hooray! A day off!

allagory Mon 21-Jan-13 23:50:52

My little boy was 3 today. He got some plastic Octonauts. Not the slightest hint of depression round here. Unbridled joy, in fact.

dd was grumpier than I have ever seen her this morning. She's usually delightfully chirpy but both she and her brothers were moany and stroppy until I packed them off to school.

Bad day at work - I have a cold and didn't finish any of things I needed to, came home, worked until 11 on a presentation for a meeting on Wednesday that I know is going to be horrible, caught up finally with my boss, had a row with him about the recommendations in it (he's wrong, I am right) which I know will rumble on tomorrow. The day has marginally improved in its dying minutes as I am now in bed with a toasted cheese sandwich and a cup of tea, and a note I found from dd which says "sorry I was grumpy this morning, I thought about you all day because I love you so much" which she had put on my pillow.

But yes, I was blue today.

Thanks for all your responses. Hope those of you who've had a bad day have a better one tomorrow!
