    Seems to be a fair few negative and depressing things about at the minute.

    So to balance that, what makes everyone happy and think life is great ?!

    Seeing little Scout faces beaming as they hold up punctured target faces.
    Their leaders are startlingly good shots, too!

    Makes you smile? Book (let alone tv series) gives me the creeps. As not impossible just held out as fiction.
    Mind you seeing flinch reaction might be a chuckle?

    Right now, the music in the new Catch 22. It’s glorious but I’m told the visual stuff is good too.
    Frankly unfussed, & listening out for Rosemary Clooney.

    Back in the office after a day down with my parents. It's easy to worry about two 80 plus year olds but they're coherent, active, engaged & when I took them to the playground as part of a walk, they cooperated & I have some wonderful funny reassuring photos.

    Seeing my parents eyeing a childrens' climbing frame & choosing their preferred methods of tackling it was a delight & an education in informed risk management!

    Birdsong.

    The smell of new mown grass, sharing a carrot between a pony and a donkey on my walk.Riding down the outside of gridlocked cars and lorries.

    Thats the everyday stuff.


    Last Friday, watching a sparrow leave the nesting box for the first time, two more to go.

    Seeing my nearly 16 year old cat hairing up the stairs like a spring chicken (should that be spring kitten?’). Plus watching her eat with a good appetite

    Seeing my mother in law up, dressed & walking around. A month ago she was in a hospital bed and the difference is a joy.
    She also interrogated son about his holiday & uncovered a great deal more than we his loving family managed...

    Cheeky son, as he settles into car seat for lift home, asks if I can give him another lift to a colleagues-&-mates beer, after he's had a bath,
    If he manages to get the two days of washing up he's left done as well, sure...

    Picking fruit from own garden - wild strawberries, raspberries, even a handful of jostaberries (currant/goosegog cross), all tucked into freezer til critical mass for jam making achieved.

    Just twigged little ruck I picked up as cute but useful is actually a Cath Kidston thing. Makes it more valuable and therefore harder to figure which small relative to gift to. (Teenage) sons' eyes tolling like marbles... As well I adore them.
