I’m having a ‘Monday moment’.

I woke up today feeling positive, I’m sure of it, and yet here we are at 10.50 and I can feel the creeping fingers of Monday blues dragging me into the abyss.

Things are good, the children all went to school happy (for once), work is picking up and I’ve got (vaguely) strategic plans.

But there’s always that little voice of doubt, something nagging away, pick pick pick…

Times like this, there’s only one way to go.Β  I’ve been playing the Glee soundtrack A LOT lately and it’s an instant pick up.Β  To all you naysayers, just try it, that’s all I’m saying.

But not today. Today for 3 minutes 35 I’m going to wallow…want to join me? (and then I’m deffo putting Glee on!)

    Oh I just LOVE Glee so no complaints here. Even have the kids into it. Hell I put up with Bloody HSM for years so now its my turn.

    Though PeeBee I must insist you turn off Miss Carpenter before you slit your wrists and have yourself a bit of “Don’t stop believing” A-SAP!

    I couldn’t believe it when I started to read this because that is what happened to me today – treadmill, washing, up, ready for shopping – all fine then POW! Gloom!

    Thanks for the song. Love it & still haven’t watched GLEE. I promise I will!

    As Modern Dilema says, many, many thanks for the blog roll place! Feel really great now!

    I love Glee but I also love the Carpenters. Do you know how many times over the last year I have used words from “Rainy Days and Mondays” as my facebook status? Loads! It’s all too fitting unfortunately. Especially as I look out my window and it is raining hard. And you gotta love Karen’s yellow dress. How could that not fail to bring a smile to your face…lol.

    I’ve got Glee on loop now….I think it’s helping (a bit).

    Of course you’re on my blogroll! Where else would you be? πŸ™‚ I finally got round to sorting all my links out and importing everyone from my G-reader into my blog, I fully intend to keep it updated now when I find new, lovely blogs…all too easy to forget.

    I love the Carpenters. But it’s surprising how many of their songs are really melancholy. Not that surprising I suppose when you know how their story turned out. As you know, I also love Glee. Can’t go wrong. Hope your day has improved. Loving the new theme btw… might have to see what my blog looks like with it…

    In that case, skip straight to the Glee soundtrack… I love the Carpenters but yes, altogether too maudlin! x

    Feels better that it’s not just me today….I think when you have a lovely weekend the humdrumness (word?) of Monday can be a real slap in the face.

    Tonight at 9pm….give it a go!

    And no probs….like I said to MD above, I read and enjoy so very happy to link xx

    All too fitting….. *sob*

    Voice of an angel that girl had. Shame the yellow dress didn’t cheer her up…what a loss πŸ™

    Boomtown Rats…nearly went for that one but remembered it was a true story about a girl who really did kill a load of people… I don’t feel *that* bad!

    Just been over at your place reading about Cougars x

    I forgot to say… this morning the OH said “don’t forget to download the new Glee soundtrack”. I think he’s a keeper.

    Such a sad story….

    Thanks alot…it’s similar to your theme but a little wider I think. I like it because you can customise the colours…I took out the background colour to create more white space and make it look altogether cleaner… oops, geek alert…I’ll shush now

    Enjoyed this so much at 10 this morning as I was sitting down to blog…kept it on a bit of a loop! I LOVE the Carpenters, brings back my childhood…kilts and kilt pins, red flares with a paisley side panel, dodgy hair do (tried a Purdy but it doesn’t work on curly hair!)….oh happy days! Actually some of it was a bit rubbish but the Carpenters and Simon and Garfunkel got me through! So, thanks to you lovely lady!

    YOu can always rely on Karen. You gotta go with it then in back to Finn and Rachel tonight! Took me a while to get into it but after the ‘all the single ladies’ episode there was no going back.

    I am definitely going to investigate. The only thing I didn’t like about my theme was that it was only two columns. You appear to have a third…

    Ooh, I had a bit of Simon & Garfunkel on this afternoon….Me & Julio…. love it!

    Sometimes you just have to wallow πŸ™‚

    My Monday soundtrack is ALWAYS The Bangles “Manic Monday”. I can’t be doing with The Carpenters…

    And I didn’t like that version of Smile on Glee tonight. Just saying. Sue made up for it though πŸ™‚

    Oh you’re missing out…. !

    I liked Smile last night, over-produced obv, but kitschly cool. As for Sue? Truly superb! Tried to make myself a new avi but just couldn’t perfect the sneer :Β§
