When I went in to my 11 year old daughter's bedroom to wake up here for school, she rolled over and complained that it's still dark. She moaned because she had to turn the light on in the kitchen when getting the breakfast ready and that started a bit of a serial (no pun intended) moan about, well, just about everything. I had a little word.
Yes, it's dark when I get out of bed in the morning and it's raining today. The Scots have a great word for days like today, it's dreek (should be spelled driech) it's almost onomatopoeic.
It would be so easy to get on board with the, "Oh, what a miserable day it is today!" crowd.
The weather may be crap and the newspapers and TV may be full of doom and gloom, but the day is not miserable. I choose not to be miserable. I choose to be happy.
What's your choice?
P.S. Off to walk the dog in the rain with my lovely wife. Sheer bliss.
