    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.

    A cute young boy(20's)flirted with me in KFC today. He was lovely looking with thick curly hair and well defined biceps , may have been a scaffolder working on the high st. It made my day because it's easy to feel invisible once you reach middle age.. it was sunny too, double bonus!

    One time, I was standing at a bus stop next to a grass verge, and suddenly spotted a pound coin in the grass! I was thrilled to bits, as this was 30 years ago when a pound was worth something! It was, to me, a windfall!

    Nowadays I don't pick coins up, as I am ok now, so would rather leave them for someone in the situation I was in once.

    The only time that I don't pick up money is if I am on someone's property, doing deliveries or visiting.
    Like you, I don't particularly need the money but it does give me a fair bit of pleasure finding loose change lying about and sometimes notes as well

    After brushing the dog I saved the hair and put it outside in a holder for the birds to possibly use for nesting, it was with great joy this morning that I saw both a blue tit and a sparrow collecting the hair

    A family of Starlings has discovered my bird feeder

    They're giving that fat pigeon a run for his/her money. Gawd, they're greedy. I put a mealy worm stuffed half coconut out there yesterday and today it's nearly all gone

    Bottas, well done, held off the charge. Good to hear Deutschlandlied played, after the Finnish anthem, for Mercedes.

    More to the point , well done Vettel , what a man !! (won't call him Sebastian or Seb, I don't know him) .

    Well done to The Lions. Gave my ticket for Bristol Rovers away, away, as I was, am, fed up with the manager Harris. But fair enough, we go again to the play-offs and as always we fear-no-foe.

    I've finally tracked down a book I've wanted to read for ages.
