    Things that made you smile

    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.

    Son has emerged from a maths tutorial giggling. I think he's been taught a mnemonic that is usually kept for students, as he's slightly pink but definitely pleased & I suspect the lesson will stick.

    I just hope he has a good maths day & passes the GCSE this time - but *any* maths that leaves him smiling gets my thumbsup!

    Some threads are sooooooooo peaceful.



    It's oh soooo quiet.


    The sound of silence.


    There's a kind of hush.


    Silent night.


    Hush a-bye baby


    Silence is golden.






    Ahhhh! It's so restful. So relaxing. Could almost doze off.

    Taking son voting! Very proud mother.

    [Now wondering if the "voted UKIP" is a windup or genuine... Taken some of the fun out of it, for me!]

    Seeing fresh new growth from tree stumps that have not been killed off properly after the tree was cut down, in some cases there are about half a dozen new trees growing from the sump

    A little girl at the hospital yesterday who seemed immensely proud of her neon-pink cast.
    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.
