When I saw this pic it reminded me of something I did a few years ago. It must have been about 2 years ago now. I remember it was around the time I started Death and Dumb. I was working in a pub, living back with my mum after my previous relationship ended in a rather spectacularly terrible fashion. My two favourite customers in the pub, where a guy (can’t remember his name) but he was really into a lot if the same music as me and we spoke for hours about it. He was about 40 and was the only customer who actually said something positive about my choice of music. He also had a dog. A Dachshund called Oli. He used to sit on a stool at the bar and look cute! Anyway one day the nice dude came in with his wife. She was a screen printer (one of my favourite things in the whole world) and we spoke and spoke for hours. I never really had many customers in my shit country, local pub and so it was quite common for me to be sat at the bar lost in conversation for hours on end. She soon became aware of the fact I was in a shit shit place. With no money and a shit job, being single and living back with my mum. She told me a little secret. I remember her telling me not to judge her when she divulged this information about her and her husband. Apparently a few years previous to this she had both been made redundant. the following week he fell from a roof and was in hospital for 6 weeks. They had no money and a family to look after. The story went on about the various troubles with her not finding work, a burglary, various operations on the dudes back… Then she read in a book about the whole idea of being really positive and imagining all the things she wanted. It said to draw a picture of all the things you want and to visualise them each night before bed and keep refreshing your mind of what you want. Cut a long story short, gradually things began to look up. And things got better, so did her husbands back, show got a job teaching screen printing (something she loved) they started their own business together. Their daughter finally fell pregnant and all good and happiness was restored. HOORAH! So yeah I drew a picture… I’ll go try and find it. Wait there.
