I was feeling pretty glum yesterday. I’ve got this sinus infection that won’t go away. It was my second day into painting the kitchen cupboards, and I wasn’t able to do it the way I wanted. My grand ideas were just too fiddly and I hadn’t left myself enough time. To top it all off the weather was all grey.
About 4.30pm it was all done except for the second coat. I was tempted to ignore the recommended drying time and just go ahead and do the second coat. Instead I made myself pack up for the day. After cleaning myself up, I settled in to watch M*A*S*H, which always makes me feel better.
It was that episode where Sidney, the psychiatrist, decides to take a break at MASH and writes to Sigmund Freud about the people who work there. Something that Sidney says at the end of the episode stuck with me. BJ asks him if he’s feeling better. He replies “It’s like spring at MASH. If you can’t find it, can’t feel it, you just go ahead and make it.” He taps on his chest, “Somewhere in here, I’m coaxing a little bud to grow.”
With that in mind, this morning I coaxed my own little bud to grow. I put on The Mighty Boosh Radio Show, (Guaranteed to coax a smile out of me) and slapped on that second coat. There was even a little bit of sunshine this morning.
It’s all finished now and I’m feeling pretty good. Click here for before and after photos.
Because The Boosh is loose and we’re a little bit RAW!
