    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.

    I will probably take Dad there on the first walk of the day arriving at 7am on the way home, Dad doesn't do pubs these days but we will get breakfast when we get home.

    If yes, do I have to learn backgammon before I may come & join you?
    There's something about a proper breakfast (Lorne sausage, by the way?) that makes the rest of the day cooperate better.

    I will just have my usual, a handful of kibble scattered on the ground for me to find and snaffle up.

    Dad has toast and jam most days with a glass of OJ to wash down all his tablets.

    My postal vote papers arrived today. Will be away for the vote (1st time ever) but wanted to have my say (no matter how the vote goes)

    Saw a portly chap awaiting the launderette to unlock. Had his laundry bag appeared to contain mainly red & white, I might have thought he was Santa looking to get the work uniform sorted early.

    Saw the same driving school car 4 times this afternoon when on a single walk of about 1.5 miles, Dad says they must have been learning how to do left turns at roundabouts as there are 4 to go round on the route they were taking

    A negative smear result (no idea why I was so worried about it this time) and a little note at the bottom saying that as I'm now so ancient I don't need to have any more tests

    A young woman moved into the house next door but one earlier this year. Yesterday she came round with a Christmas card and a couple of cup cakes to wish me a Merry Christmas

    It's very childish, but there's a road I drive by occasionally, called Arter's Lawn and someone keeps on putting an F at the beginning of the sign
