Isn't it funny how a day can turn out better than it started? I can't say I have been having the best of days recently for various reasons but life is like that - very much a mixed bag. However, after a trying day yesterday, I settled down to watch a film with M and had a very lovely evening. M has also been feeling down recently due to big problems at work and we shared a nice bottle of wine and we both relaxed and just enjoyed being together. Not a perfect day but a perfect ending to it.
I have had perfect days though. Last year I can remember M took me to Plymouth and went to visit Tintagel Castle in Cornwall. The sun was shining, we walked and talked and I got to drove my MX5 with the top down around some great roads, surrounded by wonderful scenery. In the evening we had a lovely meal and then a walk back via Plymouth Hoe in the balmy summery evening watching the lights from boats moored off land. Perfect.
The clip below is of a song that I love and sums up days like that for me. Days where you can forget all the things that weigh you down. Days where you feel good and at peace. The video was made by the BBC for their annual 'Children in Need' appeal and won many awards and is visually very strong, colourful and entertaining. A number of celebrities in the music world took part and it is great fun trying to name them. I hope you enjoy it and it makes you think of your perfect days.
