What is it about Mondays?
« on: 04 October, 2021, 01:42:19 pm »
It’s over three years since a Monday was any different from any other day in my life, but Mondays are still difficult. Why is that do you suppose. I have some ideas, but in reality they still seem to be the most difficult day of the week.

What is it about Mondays?

Mondays are the start of a new week, full of excitement, like the fresh unwrapping of a present, the first choice from a box of chocolates, the first cup of tea in the morning, the first view of the coast or the holiday destination you are heading for, and much more.

Mondays are blue. While blue can be moody, sad, even negative for some, like blues music, for others sky blue is a fresh and thrilling place to start.

No one on their death bed ever regretted not spending enough Mondays at work. Mark Twain said that 20 years from now you will regret more the things you did not do that the things you did. What chick wants to spend the next 20 years in a shell? What office worker wants to be shut in an office for the next 20 years?

Beardy, what inspires you? What delights you? What would you do if you did not have your current difficulties? Shake it up a bit and do something to make Mondays different. Take a day off to go with a friend on a trip, an easy adventure with tea and cake stops, visit a bookshop, a music shop, a National Trust property or somewhere that will fill you will happiness and take you away from whatever makes Mondays difficult.

I do not know your context.

Do you work?
Do you like that work?

When work's shit I find monday to be the worst day and friday the best.
When works good I find Wednesday to be the worst day and the rest the same.

Decades of conditioning.  School and work.  It's been ground into your mental circuitry and only 3 years release from the treadmill isn't enough to erase it.  Perhaps in 2 or 3 more years?  :)

Riding a bike through a city is like navigating the collective neural pathways of a vast global mind.

Oh, is it Monday?  Thought it was Thursday.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

I only know which day of the week it is from the days printed on the blister packs of the pills I take every day.

According to one of mine it's Sunday.

When I forget to take them on a day, all the days change. It is very confusing.

I have a daily routine which only changes if I have something pressing to attend to - like high tide demands that I get to the beach pronto for a swim.

1. I put the porridge on.

2. I fill the kettle and prepare the tea pot.

3. I clear the table and take the cloth into the garden for a good shake.

4. I check the rain gauge and the thermometer.

5. I prepare the table for breakfast.

6. I take my tablets off the shelf and open my journal at the correct page.

7. I take my favourite fountain pen and write the day and date below the end of the previous day's entry. Sometimes I double check my phone in order to do this.

Thus I usually know what day it is.
Bach without a doubt.

It’s usually about one in the afternoon when I find out I’ve forgotten to take my tablets and if I’m out then by five o’clock I’ve got no idea what bloody year it is. It’s best not to forget them.

Next Monday our water authority is cutting ours off while they change the meter. Arse.
