    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.

    Walked past a solicitor to realise there was a dachshund pup curled up, office-pet-in-training.
    Though that as jobs go, one that includes a big squishy bed, toys and several people intermittently devoted to my well-being might be an interesting career move.

    Got the paperwork lined up so not only medical exemption renewed but disabled railcard applied for.
    I get a buzz out of getting paperwork sorted. This may be very sad, but *someone* needs to be good at forms & phones.
