Monday blues - Find something to smile about :)


Yes, I admit that it's pretty much universally acknowledged that Monday is the worst day of the week - If everyone in the world had the choice between erasing Mondays and permanently silencing telemarketers, chances are it would be Monday getting the axe (and that's saying something!) - but just remember, today and every other Monday is the start of a brand new week, and who knows where you might be by the end of it? You've ditched the problems of last week and moved on to a whole new beginning, where the possibilities are pretty much endless.

In one week Mimi Anderson broke a record for the longest distance run in seven days - 636 kilometres (that's about 138 260 cars long!!), and Martin Strel swam 504 kilometers in half a week, so imagine what you could do in one week if you put your mind to it. And this year on a Monday Felix Baumgartner set the world record by breaking the speed of sound during his epic skydive...


... also, the First World War ended on one unforgettable Monday in 1918, Beethoven, Michelangelo, Mark Twain, Harrison Ford, Leonardo DiCaprio and Patrick Swayze were all born on a Monday (to name just a few) and to top it all off - the very last day of this wonderful year is a Monday (the year that has seen the celebration of the 30th Olympic Games in London, Queen Elizabeth II becoming one of only two British monarchs to reign for 60 years, 'Titanic' and 'Avatar' Director James Cameron becoming the first person to visit Challenger Deep - the deepest point on Earth - in over 50 years, relics of 'Shakespeare's' theatre being discovered in London, The tallest building in Europe - standing at 1016ft - officially opening  ...and of course, the survival of the earth ;) ...we lived through the predicted end of the world! And that's just a few highlights) :)


So next time you're feeling those 'Monday Blues', shake it off, Mondays aren't so bad, you never know... you might even brake a World record or something ;)
