Singing the January Blues

I always find January to be a bit of a strange month. The gluttony of Christmas has gone and we're all supposed to be bright-eyed and bushy tailed and somehow full of new motivation to improve ourselves via the means of resolutions. Even the days are getting brighter again, which normally heralds instant cheeriness.

I know I'm not the only one to be what can best be described as a massive post-Christmas hangover. Whilst December is a dark month, I miss the decorations and the twinkle of the fairly lights. I miss the fact that nobody needs an excuse to get together with friends, and yes, I miss the abandon of not worrying about being "good" about what you are eating or drinking for a while.

Coupled with a lot of uncertainty about my job, the fact that Him Indoors is stressed about his, and the general demands of a hectic household, my current instinct is to hide away in a little hole until at least February. Whilst hibernation is appealing, however, it's not really a viable option. Instead, it seems I have two options - carry on feeling down, or try and pick myself up, dust myself off and start looking forwards again. So, whilst I'm not a great fan of New Year's Resolutions, I'm going to treat myself to a belated one this year - namely, to keep smiling.
