    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.

    The daffodils have starting sprouting. I've got a feeling they're going to wish they hadn't when this Arctic swirling doom thing arrives.

    Apparently the term I was aiming for was "polar vortex".

    Thank you.

    If I can help someone or cheer someone up in between the whinging about my peculiar rashes and bouts of grumpiness, then I'm a happy bunny.

    My 6 yr old son who really struggles with hand writing got double house points for his homework. It made me smile seeing how proud he was of himself

    The national trust are running a radio ad that goes from, ammonite to fossil to granddad. It brings a smile to my face every time I hear it.

    I bough a half-pice pot of hyacinths in bloom last Monday, and not only is there a lot of life left in them, and they are filling my room with scent, but when they started bending over a bit, I managed to tie them up without garrotting them!
