Today is the most depressing day of the year. It’s true, it’s been written about by a newspaper and is on the internet , and it turns out it’s Twitters fault.

According to researchers who have analysed more than 2 million tweets over the past three years, the first Monday back from work in the New Year is the day when people post the most negative tweets.

It’s also another anniversary of my mums murder, and quite frankly I’m amazed I got up and functioned like a reasonable human, so I’m counting a 9 hour day in retail, smiling and saying nice things to people, as my Janathon effort, and it was an effort.

I’m off to curl up in a dark place and practice my grumpy cat face.

Meanwhile here’s a video of my favorite bathbomb, as a reward for putting up with such a maudlin blog, and me quoting The Independent at you. Good Night.
