A depressing month, as I'm sure we can all agree. And it's looking especially depressing for me since I am self-employed and have chuff-all work in the diary; this after a December in which paid employ was also, as is traditional in the run-up to Christmas, thin on the ground.
So it was that yesterday, contemplating these and other weighty matters, I fell to making a sandwich using the tiddly bit of leftover cooked salmon I'd salvaged from the girlies' tea the night before and stuck in the fridge
Buttered the bread. Spread - nay flaked - the salmon on top. Ground some pepper.
And then thought - ooh, mayonnaise...
God I love mayonnaise.
Mayonnaise on the sandwich = a transformation effected.
Mayonnaise is A Reason To Be Cheerful.
Mayonnaise is the sort of thing you need to Get You Through Jan.
So - a 'series' ! Oh lawdy!
With music I expect, yes - and lots of other things besides. Probably. I mean, we'll have to see how it goes.
The small things that keep you going.
My 'reality-altering' January thing.
Starting with mayonnaise.
