Do you wake up on Mondays singing the Monday blues after a fabulous weekend? Well I can think of worst things than early morning Monday starts and making school lunches. Try it, and you may even start to appreciate your life a little better. To reward you with your first step towards positive thinking, I've put together a list of things to look forward to on Mondays. So stop your pouting and whining and head down to your local watering hole to find your happy place:
