    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.

    Spent the day at home with a stinking cold, cheered on by pals by Facebook, text & email. I may feel rough but I'm not sharing the ick with others & they are being very sweet & supportive!

    Also zipping son into sleeping bag was Very Satisfying. It fits him, which we have now Proven.

    Sudden realisation that persons that were once thought of every single day have not entered my mind for over weeks.

    A warm smile and a small hint of sadness.
    Lost fears of love come flooding back, every time you cry gives me a little heart attack
    There's fewer more distressing sights than that of an British man in a baseball cap.

    2 things made me smile today.

    Went online to The Body Shop to order a couple of Christmas pressies - and saw that they were giving £25 off a £50 spend, with free delivery.

    Spent an hour on the phone this morning, having a lovely chat with a certain someone.

    People, even random people, keep complimenting me on my hair!

    It is a weird combination of colours, plus I have recently completely changed its style.
    I even get young men in shops telling me they like it!

    It can't get any better than that!

    Realising I was responding to the voice at a self service checkout, and hoping no-one noticed.

    It's usually along the lines of "Oh Shut up! I'm going as fast as I can, and as soon as I've put my purse and card back in my handbag, I'll take my purchases, my change, the receipt and the unexpected item in the freaking packing area and bu g g er off!"

    Which is why I don't use those checkouts, otherwise I'd probably be barred for causing a breach of the peace!




    The other thing I do, is when I'm paying my credit card bill over the phone with the automated thing, at the end, it says, 'Thank you for using xxxxCard" and I say "you're welcome!"

    Well, I was brought up to be polite!

    I was in a pub the other night and according to the "chalkboard" in the gents bog, having considered the average distance walked by humans each year, and the average number of pints of beer or lager consumed by humans each year, the average human does about 41 miles to the gallon.

    Not terribly scientific, but interesting nonetheless... .

    Cristiano Ronaldo.

    World footballer of the year for the second year running and for the fifth time.

    Congratulaions, thoroughly deserved.

    Unfortunately for my missus, whilst acknowledging he is the current and recent best, she cannot stand him. Good man.
