I was beginning to lighten

I was beginning to lighten up, then I heard something which has completely thrown my plans for this evening upside-down and made me feel very very miserable indeed, to the extent of crying. If this was the old Grayblog, I’d tell you all about it, but I’m determined not to get back to that.
Thanks for the cheering-up tips – favourite so far is this. Pity that the cheering up has now been utterly negated.
