We all have things we hate and I mentioned a few days ago about my fear and loathing of red tape. Today was a memorably rotten day, as sour faced, petty officials made me lose valuable hours from my life with their ridiculously inflexible demands for bit of photocopied paper and stamped forms. I just want to put on my favourite music (Crowded House are on right now and I might indulge in some Jimi Hendrix later) and relax for a bit. Is that ok?
If I were lucky enough to own some outdoor chair cushions then I would rush outside and plonk myself down on one. It’s raining now which is weird as the dry season started at least a month ago, so it might be some sort of sign of the apocalypse coming. Or it might just be a strange weather phenomenon. Four Seasons in One Day has just, rather appropriately come on my music player.
Would some vinyl wall art cheer me up after a bad day? It couldn’t do any harm, could it? The government office in which I most lost the will to live today only had a picture of local criminals on the wall so it would be a nice change if nothing else. I have never been a huge fan of art but I could give it a try. I always feel as though I have been missing out on something by not liking art so maybe this is my chance to make my life more complete.
Are garage cabinets guaranteed to get me in a good mood? Depends what I put in them I suppose. I could, for example, hide some cakes in them and then claim to be going in to fix the, err, one of the parts of the car. The idea of me struggling under the bonnet with a screwdriver is probably enough to make anyone suspicious about what I was really up to though.
What are the most cheerful kitchen cabinet designs around? I was thinking about one with pictures of Barney the Dinosaur on it, as this would bring a big smile to my daughter’s face and cheer up my day no end.
