10 Things to Chase Away the January Blues
Brrr and Bah. That just about sums up the general January mood. It's cold, it's dark, it's rainy, it's grey. I don't have the funds to jet off somewhere warm and fabulous, so I'm muddling my way through it by embracing the cosy.
Hearty puddings and stodgy cake - January is so not the time for all this seeds, salads and self-denial detox nonsense Long, hot, bubbly baths with your Christmas smellies Watching the waves on wild windy days Curling up under a blanket on the sofa and watching Rom Coms (pets optional, but an added furry pleasure) As much mashed potato as you can handle - pesto mash, mustard mash, horseradish mash, cheesey mash... Hot water bottles to keep your toes toasty Porridge for breakfast every single day Locking the doors, closing the curtains and putting your PJs on - at 5pm Wearing waterproofs and walking somewhere beautiful in the rain Heading for bed at 10pm, with a laptop and a mug of hot chocolate. Just like I am doing right now. Ah.
