A big thanks to Samaritans for coming to Westminster today to talk to MPs about so called 'Blue Monday'. As they point out, that's just a made up marketing gimmick to get us to spend money at this time of year. The reality is that we all have our good days and our bad days.
Rather than 'Blue Monday', 'Brew Monday' would be a far better idea - Samaritans encourage us to take the chance to catch up with those we care about over a cuppa.
If you ever find that you are struggling, Samaritans fantastic volunteers are there 24/7 and you can call them on 116 123.
