    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.

    I've just bought my boyfriend a subscription to a meditation website he's only had free trial access to so far but has loved. Arranged for him to get his voucher for it tomorrow (with it being rubbish Monday back to work for both of us) so hopefully it'll brighten his day. Sat here smiling to myself like an idiot trying to keep it secret until he gets it tomorrow.

    Well.....I work in IT support and connected someones mobile phone to a small local router to give them internet access. I was then asked "Will I be able to use it in other areas?". I assumed she meant nearby offices and the like so I asked "Which areas were you thinking of?" and she replied "The Lake District"

    Anyway I found this joke amusing...what do you think?

    The Wedding Ceremony

    At a wedding ceremony, the pastor asked if anyone had anything to say
    concerning the union of the bride and groom.
    It was their time to stand up and talk, OR FOREVER HOLD THEIR PEACE.
    The moment of utter silence was broken by a young beautiful WOMAN
    CARRYING A CHILD.
    She started walking toward the pastor slowly.
    Everything quickly turned to chaos.
    The bride slapped the groom.
    The groom's mother fainted.
    The grooms men started giving each other looks and wondering how best to
    help save the situation.
    The pastor asked the woman, "Can you tell us why you came forward?

    What do you have to say?"

    The woman replied,

    Son has appropriated downstairs closet for his early morning ablutions - the only evidence (other than it bring tidier & cleaner) is a small travel pouch containing his toothbrush & toothpaste.
    He has asked for a mirror above the sink so he can comb his hair - but said there's no rush as the dark mornings make every window a mirror.

    A Friend has DOUBLE BOOKED himself and now can't go !
    A friend of mine has two tickets for the Formula 1 final race of the season the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, at the Yas Marina circuit on the weekend of the 25th - 27th November.

    They are box seats and include flights, hospitality, and hotel accommodation.

    He didn't realise when he bought them that this is the same weekend as his wedding .














    If you're interested and want to go instead of him,










































    it's at St Johns Church, Worcester at 2:15pm on the 26th.

    Her name is Janet.

    She’ll be the one in the white dress.

    OK this joke I nicked off Steph (limelight)....

    There's this bloke who keeps birds of prey as a hobby, and he's vacuuming his house, but all the light bulbs have blown and so it's pitch black.
    Suddenly he has a flash of inspiration and decides to start a tribute act to an 80s electro-pop band....

    Not so much smile but it made me happy to see the fans of both Leeds United and Newcastle United pay tribute to the sadly missed Gary Speed who died 5 years ago. he served both clubs well in the number 11 shirt. A combined round of applause was heard on the 11th minute of the game. He was a class player and bloke.

    Leeds 0 Newcastle 2 you have to be impressed with the job Benitez is doing this year. From Real Madrid to the Championship a league he had never managed in before. That is the sign of a great manager not moving from top club to top club and spending millions

    Thank you to Steven Moore for acknowledging how good this England side are, a gentleman.
