Music Monday #1

A musical monday - some tracks to chase the blues away.

So, it's Monday and Monday's seem to be the Debbie Downer of the week in this house. We wake up a little later in less than high spirits and drudge on with the day. With a mood disorder it is very easy for a bit of a slump to turn into a full blown lasting-for-weeks depression so at the first sight of a bad mood, I turn up the music.

The one perk of today is that I have a lot to keep me busy and to keep my mind off the smaller, irritating stresses in life. With a big blogger meet up happening this weekend and a few bits to make in preparation, appointments with the girls coming out of my ears, a big load of house cleaning and some deadline heavy freelance projects I am truly stuck for time to wallow (which is a good thing). Instead I shall play good music on repeat and get my head down because Monday should be a fresh start every week yet it feels pretty stale.

It doesn't shake off all the Monday blues but it does help and if there's anything I've learned from Tesco it's that every little helps.


  1. Blackbird always makes me smile. It was the one song a friend of mine always used to end up singing at the end of boozy nights out when the guitars would come out. He was SO flat that whenever I sing it now I have to make sure I sing "night" in the same key. Thanks for sharing lovely, I've got to dig that one out....

  2. I live Regina spektor and paulo and Beatles! Great list!

  3. Ooh great playlist! Glad you're too busy to wallow- music and busy-ness are the cure for all ills, I find. xx
