What's the BEST thing to happen to you today????

Ok, I'm tired of all this doom and gloom recently that seems to bombarding us from all angles and I believe it's time to start concentrating on all the good, important, HAPPY, kind, thoughtful, wonderful things that happen to us on a daily basis, no matter how small-hopefully this will rainse the spirits of all of us DFW's!:j

Today, as most of you know, I recieved a whole load of girls clothes for my DD from a fellow DFW-and she wouldnt even accept money for the postage.

    Actually, today I felt the black cloud which as been hovering for the past two weeks lift.

    My DS told me the other day (bearing in mind he is 3) that I had 'lucious boobies' LOL!

    After wandering around a busy city centre trying to find bridesmaid shoes for my DD's and refusing to pay £38 for a pair of shoes they will only wear once, we popped into a cheapy shoe shop for some flip flops and there, right on the display at the back of the shop, the perfect colour, soft ballet pumps for £6.99 a pair! That almost made my day.....

    But then we went strawberry picking and sat in the grounds of a local abbey whilst watching DD's pond dipping and running around like loons...the sun was trying to shine, the strawberries were sooo sweet and the grass had just been cut.....The simple things in life are so much more pleasureable. :D

    My 15 year old Son has just come up to me and gave me a hug.........without me having to ask for one:D
    But these things take time, I know that I'm, the most inept that ever stepped.
  • :D nice thread! Mine was finding 10 quid in the back pocket of a pair of jeans I stopped wearing 5 years ago!
