Today is Blue Monday.  Apparently the most depressing day of the year.  So here are my top 5 things that cheer me up when I feel blue…


1 Chocolate
Do I need to say anymore? Chocolate is always there for you.  And it doesn’t judge you.


2 Stationery
I know it’s a bit geeky but I love stationery. Like really love stationery.  The husband bought me some gel pens the other day and I was as over the moon as when he bought me a diamond necklace.  Diamonds may be some girls best friend, but stationery is mine.  I know, it’s sad.


3 Tunes
Is there anything better than being alone in the car belting out your favourite tunes. It’s good for the soul.  In my head I can give Adele a run for her money any day of the week.


4 Pamper Time
There is so much less ‘me’ time when you become a parent that having time to paint my nails is like a day at the spa. Luxury.


5 Family Fun
I love going for a walk with the boys around our local common. Normally there are wheels involved in the form of a bike or a scooter. But the boys get to run free and burn of some energy, and when we get home we can warm up with a hot chocolate, which kind of takes me back to number 1!



What brightens your day?
