Apparently this is the saddest day of the year (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Monday_%28date%29)...

This date allegedly falls on the Monday of the last full week of January.Funnily enough, I woke up this morning feeling more chipper than usual :ok:

Maybe Blue Diamond will be along to tell us how he feels?

On my NZ calendar ( so it could be wrong ) Aus. Day is the 27th this year, so I'd go for 20th Jan.as Blue Monday, not 27th, the latter not being the start of a full week,Saturday being 1st Feb. ( at least in the Antipodes it is, can't speak for the Podes )

But then .... don't open your umbrella inside the house, and smash up all your boiled egg shells when you've eaten the egg, so that the Witches don't use them to sail away in.

or something like that - makes as much sense.

Oops :uhoh:

You are 100% correct, my mistake.

Takes me a while after being away bush for a couple of weeks to get back into things having come from a no watch (apart from the sun), no calender and don't
have a clue what day it is environment :O

......good grief Mr Ex.....! You are the first person outside my family that I've heard come out with that ritual!

My daughter-in -law looked at me as if I'd lost my marbles and was in danger of infecting her children with some medieval magic. (But the twins now do it, he he!)
My other grandaughter took as an eminently sensible precaution. Along with Grandad's other idea of having seville orange marmalade with sausages (same rationale as apple sauce with pork, cuts any tendency to greasyness)

So it is possible to pass ancient myths down through to the modern generation.

Hot. It's after 2100 and still 32 degrees C. :{

And yes, I am a "she" not a "he." But no probs there ... I chose a gender neutral name which gives no clues so no worries, lefty.
