    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.

    That after much fuss, mileage, nervous wear & tear etc, we have sorted most of the kit for son to move out into a flat with.

    Now husband has ironing board envy...
    So I've called & tucked one at customer services for me to get him "as a surprise".

    This amused me more than irritated, a fb group I am in has had one member constantly calling out he was being bullied or people are picking on his spelling, got lots of sympathy off some members, I just thought he was a drama Queen, turns out he has multiple profiles and a pretty serious criminal past, just show you, do not believe everything you read on the internet.

    Edit: Having google the guy, there is no way this should be in a smile thread just shows you what you can come into contact online

    It now appears this idiot is doing the same things to other groups, accusing people of bullying and getting them removed, I thought he was w***** from his first couple of posts, I have a good instinct for sniffing them out.

    The simple pleasure of walking around one's home in one's undercrackers.


    I've decided to have a weekly soak and scrub in the bath. I feel like a Viking--albeit a heat-intolerantViking in a bubble bath who gets rather dizzy if they stay in too long. (Don't worry, I'm also taking the odd shower in between.)

    This pleasure is apparently alongside hygge or however you are supposed to spell let alone pronounce it. Bravo, & enjoy it!

    And I'm keeping the offspring away from this thread lest they see the little boat & decide they must get back into making models. Worse than Lego for the wallet and for the soles of the feet, says she with some feeling...

    Aww. Colleague called to ask me to move my car so another driver could leave. The poor chap apologised for disturbing me, but after a day in our office chairs I wouldn't fancy a limbo across from the passenger side either!

    All sorts of happy smiles & waves & a few puzzled looks as I headed Back into the office.
    (I've an onsite slot today, which rarity means a long day as less time walking to & from the usual carpark.)

    Fire drill. For a real situation but no actual fire engines. Lovely mild afternoon, lots of familiar faces, noone needed the first aid kit I lugged, and now comfortably back at desk with pot of tea.

    On DT reading about a guy who got tasered for refusing to stop having sex with a car exhaust pipe, and the article had a photo of the exhaust pipe!
