    Dry January…………………..tick

    Improved diet……………….tick

    New exercise regime…….tick

    More sleep………………..….tick

    So why is it that I feel so flaming lethargic?

    Is it just my advancing age (54), or is it that when I look at Trump vs. the World, woeful state of UK politics in the lead up to Brexit, miserable weather, doom-mongering journalists etc. etc. I realise that despite my adherence to my NY resolutions I’m swimming against an insurmountable tide of negativity?

    I think I’m going to revert to alcoholic slovenliness fuelled by junk-food and see whether that makes the world a brighter place. Will report back, possibly incoherently

    You need to join the Army. According to the new ads they'll give you a cuddle, let you pray a bit, and next thing you know you'll be reinvigorated and chomping at the bit to shoot something.

    Thanks Drago. I'm slightly worried about their new third criteria. I have some gay mates, but hitherto have shown no inclination to play along

    And buy a new Vauxhall SUV. Just seen an ad on tv which infers you’ll recover from depression if you own one. The male protagonist looks to be around 50.
    I feel your pain. It’s a difficult world to be happy in when you have everything you need. Give away a load of your stuff - sell all those spare bikes and give your unused gear to charity. Go find people worse off than you. You’ll soon cheer up if, say, you meet a fellow your age locked in a chair with eg MND.

    Shall I do the mandatory MTFU/straighten up and fly right type post, or leave it for someone else?

    That's it, all better now. Who'd have thought that it would have been so simple?
