On a rainy day (come on, England!) it’s easy to get a little down in the dumps. Sometimes you can just have “one of those days” where everything seems to go wrong – the weather is miserable, you miss your train, you’ve got a splitting headache and your kids keep hassling you.

But sometimes, all we need is a little pick-me-up that can completely turn our day around. It could be some reassurance from a friend, or a smile from a total stranger, and we can feel our day picking up!
