This year “Blue Monday” – a date in January regarded as the most depressing day of the year – falls on 19 January. I’m sure that I heard John Humphrys on the Today programme this morning say 40% of workers would call in sick today. That can’t be right, surely? He wasn’t on very good form at all though: when interviewing George Osborne about Ken Clarke’s return to the front benches, he didn’t even paraphrase Jeremy Paxman’s classic question to Norman Lamont after black Wednesday into “Do you like being Shadow Chancellor? Are you going to miss it?”
Anyway, I feel fine today. Right as rain. Like the rain that’s been falling endlessly from the sky for months – as endless as the credit card bills arriving through the door, each one more ghastly than the last. I did manage to get a bargain price on some rope to string across one of the beams in the attic – so every thing’s peachy.
