January seems to be the longest month. Combined with the cold, damp, waiting for payday, excess weight – it really is quite dire. But although it was supposedly Blue Monday a week or so ago, it definitely appears to actually be today!
Oh my goodness. Indented toes, sore and crushed into shoes far too small (why is it so necessary to have shoes that are too small – how does that help?) The sting as you take off those shoes, pins as your tootsies come back to life, needles as you try to walk.
