Do you ever have days when life seems just a little bit cold and rubbish? Like everything is sort of grey rather than technicolour?
Yesterday was one of those days.
Me: Today was really hopeless, you know when there is no silver-lining?
S: I have those days too.
Me: (staring intently at the DFS advert which is currently on the tv) We should live more like the DFS advert people. Look, they are all happy on their sofas. See! They are drinking wine on theirs, and those two are playing cards in a jovial manner!
S: They are also fake sweetheart.
Me: They are not. They are real people!
Ten minutes later I am watching tv while pondering why I don't own the Gavin and Stacey Christmas special on dvd when a Michael Buble video comes on.
Me: S!! (Pointing enthusiastically at the tv) We should do things like this more! It would be so fun!
S: Dancing on cars while confetti falls down all around us with a load of other people?
Me: Yes! This is good! This is what we need to aim for. Crazy fun!
