I've personally just written off the whole of January. What a rubbish month!

I know and in terms of the weather you can't do anything, I hope this snow goes away quickly after todays downpour!

Hoping everyone is feeling better - January is almost over and it's getting darker later too - not long til Summer nights! Hope we have a good one this year - we deserve it.

Haha no don't write Januarys off, that's a 12th of your entire life written off! Sure you can find some ways to improve them! Smile

Like renting your favourite films and watching them by the fire and talking your dog for walks all wrapped up warm!  What do you do in January hannah_mc?

Those are good ideas, I love watching films or TV boxsets in for the winter. Also, I think it's good to take up an indoor hobby so you're not bored; this is what I generally try to do in January. Something like reading, learning something new (a new language, instrument, etc), or some kind of exercise you can do indoors if you don't feel like venturing out.

Here are some tips on beating the January blues if anyone needs them Smile:

I like to have a bath and then snuggle up watching corrie with a cup of tea. That perks up my boring January. Alongside my birthday ;)

I like wrapping up warm and heading out for a crisp, winters walk and maybe going to the pub en route.
