    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 1:31 PM
    We have a what's irritating you thread, and I think we need a thread for things that have made us smile, etc.

    Me - well, we have a puppy who is now 8 months. I let her out this morning and was hoping to keep the door open for her to come in. But it was too windy. I was stood by the door waiting for her, expecting to see her come down the steps.

    I then heard a tap at the door. She'd come down the steps, which I hadn't seen and tapped to be let in. She also taps to go out.

    Its not that we have more patience as we grow older, its just that we're too tired to care about all the pointless drama

    A cute young boy(20's)flirted with me in KFC today. He was lovely looking with thick curly hair and well defined biceps , may have been a scaffolder working on the high st. It made my day because it's easy to feel invisible once you reach middle age.. it was sunny too, double bonus!

    At one time in my life I did just that. At a time when I had to budget to see if I could afford a Mars bar as a treat, finding pennies and twopence pieces was a bonus.

    One time, I was standing at a bus stop next to a grass verge, and suddenly spotted a pound coin in the grass! I was thrilled to bits, as this was 30 years ago when a pound was worth something! It was, to me, a windfall!

    Nowadays I don't pick coins up, as I am ok now, so would rather leave them for someone in the situation I was in once.

    The only time that I don't pick up money is if I am on someone's property, doing deliveries or visiting.
    Like you, I don't particularly need the money but it does give me a fair bit of pleasure finding loose change lying about and sometimes notes as well
