Sunday afternoon blues and tunes

Iffley lock Going back to work isn't the problem; I leapt over that hurdle last week, and felt surprisingly productive. It's not twixmas overeating; I was quite good with that and did a fair bit of walking to counter what I did cave to. The rain isn't helping sure. But for whatever reason I have an all-encompassing case of the Sunday afternoon blues.

As a result I am in no mood to ruminate, extrapolate, pontificate or delve into the complexities or warming mundanities of life, the universe and everything.

All I am fit for, it would seem, is listening to music, drinking hot chocolate and wallowing in that heart-breaking gloom of a long, and ever-lasting Sunday afternoon.

And so I give to you a few of the tunes that are helping me to swim (or sink) in this deluge of gloom...

Pretty much anything from Prince's album Parade, but especially 'Sometimes it snows in April'.
