    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.

    Son's expression when querying what had happened to the teddy in the hugely printed bag! (I answered that I'd eaten the bear, buttered...)
    It seems that to eat a teddy bear isn't entirely odd, but to butter it first is unspeakable...

    The ability to sit in my garden in the pleasant evening sunshine and just chill. It's been so long since I did this and I've spent all summer revamping the garden so it's nice to take advantage of it at last

    Got the holiday docs through yesterday. The hotel in Rome will be a different one.

    Its more centrally located and got a better rating on Trip Advisor - about 30-35 places higher up.

    When you get holiday docs in the post, you get more excited.

    Son has just pleaded with me to text him permission to go on a school trip next month. Text duly sent, followed by another starting "Wazz@ck...."

    I just hope his school accept the text so long as he dos follow it up with the bit of paper he forgot!

    A gorgeous charity shop bargain I saw on display on a shop window this morning. Was hoping it was still there when I finished today, and it was. Apparently a size 8, which I definitely am not. Just glad it fits!

    It was actually a sleeveless Khaki green a-line halterneck, with a black web/net? under tunic. I think vanity sizing. Loads nicer than it sounds for £4.

    My GP's expression when I asked if it was OK for me to go on a pretty tough diet.

    My records are a bit clear that I should have been doing this, well, shall we leave it at Some Time Ago? but I had resisted their subtle & unsubtle blandishments.
    (I took a thoughtful look at the insulin pen my husband uses every mealtime & thought "No. Thank you". I intend to try to remain my relatively reasonable self, but my calorific intake is going to halve for a few months.)
