    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.

    Not the way I cook them - but the jalapenos he added? I shudder to think!

    Whilst yearning to take a mallet to *how* he expresses himself, the juxtaposiiton of "it's the end of the world" to "bring pizza" has me grinning.

    Bailie just made me laugh. There was a half dead fly on her bed. Normally if they're buzzing around she'll chase them but because this one was only crawling she seemed to be scared of it and she ran off into the other room. And the look of total disgust on her face because there was a fly on her bed was very funny

    He is yet to catch one and with him still growing I sometimes worry when he jumps up at the window that he might go through it one of these times

    Two class of people in the UK. Those that always pay and those that are happy to sit back, relax and let others pay. I know which I am, I also know I'm in the minority.

    I have a dog now (since Feb) but I was doing 5/6 miles a day walking anyway, the extra is purely down to my dog, he keeps taking me out a walk.

    I do a certain amount of miles going over the same routes so that the dog can check his signposts and meet his pals but as I can cover all points of the compass on a huge network of paths and parks it is never boring.
    I am also in the Ramblers and usually go out with them twice a week away from homebase so there is quite a bit of variety that way.

    There is a challenge on the Sports board upstairs that I joined at the start of the year hoping that it would inspire me to do a few extra miles but since getting the dog I have had no need to worry about hitting the mark every week

    Wheeee! I think I've just watched the best rugby game of my life!

    End to end the whole game! Pity we couldn't have just edged it, but we'll take the drawn match and series!

    Welsh boys did us proud, too.

    Edit to add: Jonathan Davies and his mam! Bless!

    Memories!

    This time 19 years ago I went to bed with what I thought was a grumbling appendix . . . who knew Tucker Minor, the sweetest of all my children, would come crashing into the world and change our lives forever!!!

    Emerging from under a cold, I decided on clean bedlinens.
    Stripped sons beds, found unpleasantness. Quite how eldest has slept in a bed with an apple between the mattress & the sheet I am not wholly sure but princess he never was...
    As for other son, he will be making his own breakfasts for several days & *everything* not eaten will be disposed of in the proper bin, not left wherever.
    I'm smiling because the day has been warm enough to dry bedding almost as fast as I can wash it.

    Seeing people disappear when someone else gets banned. Maybe they think it's contagious?

    Worst thing you can do is desert the forum because someone has their finger glued to the report button
