This week started with "Blue Monday", supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Indeed, the chilly weather, lack of daylight and distant prospect of summer holidays resulted in low spirits among students and teachers alike.

Crying as I get ready to go to school #BlueMonday


My school purposely has an Inset Day on Blue Monday


Google images is for life, not just for procrastinating in free lessons. #BlueMonday


Supposed to be wearing bright things to counteract Blue Monday but my school uniform is very very very very drab.


Have managed to get on a train carriage full of children going on a school trip. Blue Monday indeed.
