After such a wet Jubilee weekend, I heard on the news this morning that Thames Water could lift their hosepipe ban soon as the risk of drought has been reduced.
This reminded me of the phrase ‘every cloud has a silver lining’ and how by looking for the silver lining we can help ourselves to stay positive.
Another silver lining of the last weekend was that the Great British Weather brought out the Great British spirit. I particularly remember seeing the spirit of the Royal College of Music Chamber Choir on the final boat at the jubilee pageant.
For our own Diamond Jubilee Street Party, we had almost as much fun in the setting up of the party (in the dry) and the clearing up (in the wet) than during the party itself. I had a real sense of us all pulling together.
Where is there a cloud in your life at the moment and what could be the silver lining?
