Hello one and all and welcome back to ‘A Rural Review’. We would like to begin by congratulating you, as this week began with ‘Blue Monday’ – widely considered to be the most depressing day of the year in the UK, and you have managed to get through it! Although ‘Blue Monday’ was made up by a holiday company as a marketing ploy in 2005 with no real facts and statistics supporting their assertion that the third Monday in January was the most depressing day of the year, we still think surviving it is something to be proud of. Therefore, to celebrate we will do a blog post recapping all that has happened at Rural Arts this week and what is coming up next week – aren’t you all lucky?!
