You were already beat by Wednesday. Your laundry didn’t get done. Your kids just made a mess of your place, which you just cleaned. You could use something to push you through to the weekend, but you can’t bust out the cocktails, because you got bills to pay and mouths to feed. Feels like you could do with a pick up to lift you up off your ass and feel good right now.

Corinne Bailey Rae is my little sonic pick up. As good as a cuppa or a kava. You just need a smiling face that never quits to lull you into blissful happiness, to make you remember that your life and you yourself, my friend, are damned awesome and that if you can watch this across the internet, your life can’t be so hard. Get up and do it. Whatever it is. Make it happen, because you can.
