I'm finding January a bit depressing. I'm sure that most people out there feel the same - the post-Christmas lull, the weather, the greyness, the cold, the no money because you spent it all on Christmas, the diet, etc etc. So I've been trying to inject a bit of colour and life into my days.
I've done 77 squares so far and had a little break from this in favour of knitting various projects, however I am now cracking on and enjoying the brightness and ease of this. I can do a square in about 5 minutes and watch TV at the same time (or I would if there was anything good on worth watching!)
I love how the squares look all tucked into the basket too.
The tulips on my kitchen table are nice and cheery,
as are the daffs on my mantelpiece.
These two are making me get out and about, whatever the weather. The dinky dog on the right is Sophie, who is on her holidays with us for a week or so. The other great bruiser is my gorgeous boy, Bodie, of course.
Sometimes when I'm on the hill at 8 in the morning it looks a bit like this:
...but the times it looks like this make it worth getting up for.
I hope you can make the sun shine, metaphorically if not physically, and chase away the January blues (or greys!)
