How did you honestly feel when you woke up this morning?

I didn't know it was 'Blue Monday' but I pressed snooze a few times. My working day did not begin until 11am but my plans of rising at 7am rapidly disappeared once I opened my eyes to a dark room and the howling winds outside.

It’s natural enough to feel like staying in bed and pressing the snooze button after the weekend, I won’t be excusing my lazy morning in bed to the fact that it is the official day of glum today.
