YES, I KNOW “BLEW MONDAY” DOESN’T ACTUALLY WORK AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO “BLUE MONDAY” BUT I’M TRYING TO CHEER EVERYONE UP. I know it doesn’t make sense, but I”M TRYING MY BEST.
This is in an attempt to stop “Blue Monday” from getting the better of us, because in reality it is simply a made up day that has been hijacked by the media to sell us all a holiday we don’t actually need. So by calling it “Blew Monday” instead we can change the story and use it to blow dandelions and make a wish, or blow the cobwebs away, or blow the candles, or your nose…or blow any thing you want to in order to cheer yourself up (or someone else)…
Blew Monday was the day that Prince Harry left the building. To join Megan and Archie in Canada. It’s too early to judge their decision and I’m happy for him that he’s escaping the firm – he needed to do that, for his family’s sanity, because it clearly wasn’t for her, but at what cost? I’m worried that he’s going to feel isolated and lonely without his fam. In a slightly cynical way, I’m tempted to give him five years before he’s back, sans épouse. We will see, but in the meantime, I wish them all the luck in the world. Not easy to step away and take that leap of faith and there is an element of be careful what you wish for, because I suspect their problems will go with them.
It was also the day I went to stay with my mother so that I could take her to a hospital heart appointment today, for an echocardiogram. Honestly, she’s been through so much and now they’re worried about her heart. However, I am happy to report that it is still beating and she is still blowing out candles:-
It was also the day my son called me to say that he is going to have to have a second operation on his shoulder and should he go for the cancellation slot of tomorrow? So now I’ve got that to worry about and I will be going to collect him and bring him home for some much needed tlc.
It also happened to be the day that I was checking up on other loved ones – some not well, others in pain, a few away from home…you name it, it seems to be occurring.
However, it was also the day that the world kept on turning, the day that it rained in Australia, the day that the sun shone and the sky was blue, that the frost sparkled, that my mother told me to keep on smiling, because that was the best cure for wrinkles, the day like any other day when good things happen and bad things happen. No different to any other day.
I hope you got through it without any pain – maybe it is good to have a flagship day that reminds us all to check our mental health and our happiness, but anyway, it’s gone for another year now – onwards and upwards as the day’s start to lengthen.
