    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 12:31 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.

    What made me smile within the last few days:
    - On Monday, I asked for a non-emergency GP appointment. I was seen yesterday. Came out and asked for another appointment and got that for this morning.
    - Now changed medication; so hopefully won't be feeling hungry all the time. Just got to remember to take it 3 times a day now.
    - Won DLA tribunal. Was told some very interesting things about colour blindess. Can't remember what they were now.

    Walking pass the full priced daffodils because I thought they were too expensive then finding some in the price reduction bucket for a quarter of the price.

    Don't care if it's real, just makes me smile every time

    My cheap daffodils have flowered lovely and every time I see them I feel like I've got a bit of Spring, can't help but smile.

    The pictures of Niagara falls being partially frozen, I have been lucky enough to have been there and seeing parts of the falls frozen makes me want to rush over there and see it for real again, its hard to beleive that water moving so fast could freeze over, it must have been really cold.
    Lovely to see though

    Finishing my sandwich run at work 15 minutes early, sounds silly but it's something I've struggled with since I started working there but I finally have started getting them done on time and today was the first time I did them earlier, my manager also told me I'd done well so that made me smile.
