This new positive thinking lark is going quite well.
In a conversation today, I mentioned that 'Every cloud has a silver lining.'
On reflection, I then realised that where I live, the sliver lining had probably been stolen and sold as scrap metal. Then, on further reflection, I realised that this would create job opportunities for silver lining makers, and silver lining fitters. Thus proving to myself that even negative things can have a positive spin.
