    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.

    Driving along, there was a girl on a bike up ahead. (A push-bike).

    She signalled right and pulled out into the centre of the lane, approaching a small roundabout.

    She signalled right and went around the roundabout, with me following.

    At her exit, she signalled left, turned off from the roundabout and rode over to the side of the traffic lane again.

    A brilliant bit of cycle-riding.

    I knew exactly what she intended at every point.

    Came through the cat flap at 10 times the normal velocity, skidded to a halt at the bottom the the stairs, (where I saw a bird being given a NASTY SUCK at least) she then ran to the French doors wanting to go back in to the garden.

    Fortunately I pounced on the cat and the Robin dropped out flapping in to a corner.
    Secured Mia, caught our feathered friend and then released on to the lawn.
    Seemed to be in shock or stunned rather than injured.
    Took a while to move and then not very good on the aerobatic/aeronautical front, finally disappearing in to some undergrowth.

    Did ROBIN SURVIVE ?????????????

    Driving on the M5 last night, a **** in a BMW shoots past me doing at least 100mph. Five minutes later I see said BMW on the hard shoulder with an unmarked police car parked behind him

    Something like that happen to me once..... someone tailgating me and flashing all the time, but it wasn't safe for me to pull over without cutting someone up.
    Then I was eventually able to pull over, and he passed me.
    A bit further along I saw he had been stopped by the police.
