Today’s word is lugubrious.
It nicely sums up the way I am feeling at the moment.
I had a rough night and didn’t get to sleep until dawn. Then a delivery arrived early and got me out of bed after only a couple of hours.
Not a good start.
I decided to cheer myself by trawling the day’s headlines.
It was the usual clatter of murders, deaths, gang warfare and probably the most depressing – the Golden Globe Awards – a celebration of the banal by the braindead. Not one cheerful item. Not even one politician squashed by a double decker bus.
Then the thought struck me that maybe this is Blue Monday?
It isn’t. I have that to look forward to next week.
Now it has started to snow.
Your mission for today is to cheer me up.
