Blue Monday?

Apparantly today, 'Blue Monday' is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year.  Not so for me today I'm happy to report.   This morning, where I live it was one of those gorgeous crisp wintery starts to the day where the ground is carrpeted in a minty white frost and the trees stand like ghostly figures peeking through the curtain of mist. 

Me and the Baby wrapped up warm and headed out for a stroll.  More precisely, I strolled and pushed The snug-as-a-bug-in-a- rug Baby in his pushchair.  As the sun rose higher into the sky we stepped up the pace and had quite a spring in our step.  I love days like this.  The air is still, the sky is blue and it's much easier to put a positive spin on all of lives goings on.

I'm even feeling relatively postive about The Eight Year Olds birthday party at the weekend.  The Eight Year Old became eight during the Christmas holidays and so we thought we'd wait until he returned to school to invite his school pals around for a party.  And that's how we'e ended up inviting fifteen - yes, 15!!! - seven and eight year olds around to our house on Sunday afternoon...
