    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 12:31 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.

    Friend sent me a link to texting cats on YouTube. Laughed my socks off.

    It made me smile this morning when I realised it's not just me.....
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    Congratulations Miss P!

    Over here, i’ve one happy young man. He has a small fire going up on the back garden & is methodically burning all his A level revision notes, his last exam having been this morning.
    That he will then be reminded to go scrub won’t startle him - he can wash away not just the soot etc but all the stress and anxiety of the last weeks & devote himself to enjoying the poker night, the pub crawl, & the week away in Cornwall with his best mate & family. (Not us. We’re embarrassing, which I think I count as a success.)

    It was great to see the Scotland women's football team keeping up to the standards set by the men's team.
    I had my Argentina shirt on, for Ossie and Ricky of course, none of this wearing it for the need of being crass.

    Niall Ferguson embarrassing himself on the Politics Live show.
    If I were not at work, but more notably it was not raining, I'd be able to leave my home and attempt to watch something less cringeworthy.
    Darn you the weather and local government.

    Son does not needs a lift! He;s sorted needle-phobic driving pal to take him to platelet donation this weekend. He is that young & healthy & husky that they wanted him from his first donated unit but this will be the first platelet gig & he's "you just sit in a chair, mum" That's not quite how the NHS describes it but I am so proud of both lads.

    Ahem, managed to try to drive without engine coolant. RAC got my family safe home & my car to garage - then today I discover garage owner on holiday for a fortnight with family.

    He called to tell me he has the car, has looked at it, identified all the RAC did & reckons he can get it back on the road for £250. My fervent blessings plus desperate pleas that he not annoy his womenfolk by working in their family holiday (as I go in respectful terror of them) were met with a cosy chuckle. OhTheRelief!

    Struggling towards less plastic, let alone single use & bumping against clingfilm. Sis found four linen napkins in her charity shop & now I have them, washed line dried in the sun & glorious. It feels so good to touch!

    The current crop of chalk graffiti on the footpaths makes even me smile
    If it was boys that did it then there is a lot of wishful dreaming on how 'things' are going to grow and if it was girls that drew them they are going to be rather disappointed about the real size of 'things' when they get to grips with them

    Just outside an Aldi a couple of days ago when I hear a woman's voice behind me berrating someone.
    "Come on, keep up"
    "Stop doing that"
    "Now you're in the way"
    "Why are you doing that"

    "STOP ACTING LIKE A CHILD !"

    I turn round to see who she is bellowing at .....

    ... a young boy that I estimate would be could not be more than 6 to 7 years old

    At the side of the Customer Services desk in ASDA there is usually a shoping trolley containing the items that have been returned that day.
    Generally a wide and varied selection of a few solitary items.
    A toaster, a deep fat fryer, a LCD TV, a pair of curtains, a lamp shade, an iron, some cushions, a picture frame and a computer keyboard.
    Maybe they are recently purchased but the wrong size, shape or color, or somewhat older and are broken
    Any clothes tend to be in a plastic box behind the desk

    There was a "RARE"-ish (and "short lived") event last week that I'm sure you all remember

    Passed the CS desk and said trolley yesterday ......

    ... it was quite full ...

    ... seemed to be a "common" theme

    4 or 5 small desk ones
    4 or 5 larger desk versions
    3 or 4 floor
    3 mini towers
    2 larger towers
    maybe a hand held or 2
    and a pedestal ......



    Probably 20 of them in total .....

    ... could all be broken I suppose, maybe the "wrong size, shape or color" ....

    but I doubt it ...

    FANS FANS FANS

    Tha ASDA "COOL" lending service for a few days whilst it's really hot

    Just gurgling over a friend's sig line:

    You are never too old to have a happy childhood.
    Muddy is a state of happiness.

    (I absolutely agree, while enjoying the power of a bar of soap in a hot bathtub as well.)
