Anyone else finding today really hard going, and have no idea why? Read on :

Wednesday is the third day of the week in most western countries and the fourth day of the week in the Christian calendar, between Tuesday and Thursday. The name comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old EnglishWēdnes dæg, meaning the day of the Germanic god Woden (Wodan) who was a god of the Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century. Wēdnes dæg is like the Old Norse Oðinsdagr ("Odin's day"), which is an early translation of the Latin dies Mercurii ("Mercury's day"), though Mercury (the messenger of the gods) and Woden (the king of the Germanic gods) are not equivalent in most regards.

According to the Hebrew Bible, Wednesday is the day when the Sun and Moon were created.

An English language idiom for Wednesday is "hump day", a reference to making it through to the middle of the work week as getting "over the hump."

So there you are, even if you feel fine you have put in the majority of work for the week. Makes you wonder if statistically more crimes/accidents occur by Wednesday - if anyone knows perhaps they might care to comment.

Next week you will know why you don't feel as bright on a Wednesday morning but by the evening you will be able to look forward to the anticipation of the weekend and a chance to relax and chill out before it all starts again next week.
