January Survivor… #BlooMonday – Bloo Giveaway

Christmas is over.

It’s dark.

I’m skint.

My jeans feel tight.

I’ve already failed at at least two New Years resolutions.

It’s freezing.

January…it’s hard to stay positive at this time of year isn’t it? The buzz and anticipation of the Christmas Festivities, which quite frankly started before we’d even chucked out our rotten pumpkins, has left a Turkey-Baileys-credit card bill shaped hangover that’s in need of more than a couple of paracetamols and a berocca… Like, an accidental double payday, some sunshine, and maybe a summer holiday booking confirmation.

But, so so much to stay upbeat about. I can’t complain at all, having had the most amazing Christmas, a magical January family get away to Center Parcs, a kid free weekend with friends in Oxford and so much to look forward to in 2016. BUT It’s just so easy to get caught up in the day to day moans and groans, isn’t it?

I had to smile when Bloo contacted me to tell me about their efforts to cheer up the Nation this January. For starters, It made me feel like the blog queen of toilet cleaning products (I refer back to Confessions of an anti-microbial Mum)…but also, you have to love the randomness and pure silliness of their campaign…to get everyone to #keepsmiling.

On Blue Monday (#BlooMonday) (That’s January the 18th, statistically shown to be the most depressing day of the year), the team at Bloo set up a giant toilet…yes, that’ s what I said..in central London. They got passers by to write down their woes and literally flush them down the pan. Brilliant.

As if that wasn’t enough, they randomly gave out blue flowers to commuters, and other little treats, to brighten up the otherwise dreary dismal January day.

You have to love that don’t you?

Finally, Bloo want me to give YOU a hamper of lovely goodies. If you fancy some FREE STUFF just leave me a comment telling me why you are a January Survivor, and we’ll pick our favourite. Keep it clean guys 😉

Keep Smiling!


Disclosure: This is a collaborative post. I will pass on details of the winner to Bloo who will arrange delivery of the hamper. They’re sending me one too…wonder whats in it?! Competition closes 7th February 2016.

    I’m a January survivor because I DIDN’T make any new years resolutions, therefore relieving myself of any sense of failure when I couldn’t keep them! I’m a survivor because I kicked Dry January in the ass 3 days in, and the continued alcohol consumption has made a fabulous treat at the end of every challenging day! I’m a survivor because I didn’t tell myself I was going to go to the gym more-I’m actually quite happy with the amount I go! I’m a survivor because I haven’t tried to talk myself into anything that I think might improve my brain functioning (French lessons, art classes etc,) and I’ve admitted to myself that for now, watching Netflix and blogging of an evening is actually what I want to be doing! I’m also a survivor because I still face anxiety challenges every month, and I managed to get through January with nothing but a few very minor wobbles. I think that makes me the suvivorymost survivor (in the words of Gwen from Dinopaws!)

    January’s not so bad- I survived by thinking positive! In fact I just posted a new blog today with not 1 but 10 reasons to love January. If you get a minute you can read it here http://messandmerlot.com/2016/02/01/january-whats-the-plan/

    I’m a January Survivor because on top of surviving the usual January colds, sore throats, lost voices and blue Monday exhaustions, we ended up A+E twice! Two weeks ago, I burnt my leg really badly by knocking a just poured cup of tea off the worktop straight into my leg. To make it even worse I couldn’t get it wet for over a week (no showers or baths allowed!!)… then last weekend, Baby H had a horrid fever two nights in a row, refusing to dip, so we had to get her checked out too. So we’ve had lots of sleepless nights along with paracetamol and calpol all round in our house! But hey ho, we had a brilliant Christmas and New Year, we’ve decorated our bedroom and H’s, had some of our closest friends round for dinner, a visit from my sister, and most of all we’re all on the mend. So, hopefully we’ll be onto a much better things for the rest of the year, well, fingers and toes crossed!
