Personally I thought today was just fine and dandy. It was going to be a ‘non-drinking day’ too but perhaps not if this Oddbins formula is to be believed…

On the widely reported most depressing day of the year, Oddbins has calculated the likelihood we’ll reach for a glass of wine tonight – and the probability is looking high…

Dubbed ‘Blue Monday’, due to a combination of cold weather, lack of light, and possibly a lack of imagination on the part of the PR industry, the national wine merchant suggests we’ll choose to relax indoors and enjoy a glass of wine this evening. On top of today’s woes a general lack of motivation to keep up the New Year gym and detox regime, inane ‘holier-than-thou’ stories from gloating exercise-fiend friends, plus of course the riveting antics of the housemates of Celebrity Big Brother 2012 will likely find you grabbing yourself a sweet spot on the sofa tonight.
