Post-holiday Doldrumoid (as seen through a microscope.)


The beginning of the year renewal process never arrives without some minor inconveniences. This year is no different and the inconvenience comes in the form of a furry, horned, jingle-belled pest known as the Post-holiday Doldrumoid.

To find out more about this year’s unwelcome guest and pick up some helpful hints on how to cope with him and his kind, click this link and stop by the Doodle Diner… and pick up some delicious doodles whilst you’re there.

    So that’s what he looks like… I think he visited me a bit but I never got a good look!
    Now I know what to look out for! I’ll put Zoe and Dante on patrol!
