There's another forum I visit more or less frequently, on which they've got a thread which I've found helps cheer people up. At least, it's sometimes worked for me. It consists of writing three good things of your day. Especially when you've had a very bad day, coming up with these three things shows that the day hasn't been all bad. I don't know whether the thread will work here, but let's have a go. Today's been a normal -not too good, not too bad- day for me, and my three good things of the day are: 1) I've finished marking exams sooner than expected, so the evening is all mine. No work! This only happens once in a blue moon. 2) Thanks to a thread here about songs with colours in their title, I've listened to a few I hadn't listened to for some time. I'm especially glad to have heard again Roy Orbison's "Blue Angel", one I fell in love with so long ago I cannot even remember. 3) My mother's courgette cream was excellent.
