    What's the BEST thing to happen to you today???? 21st Jun 08 at 5:40 PM
    Ok, I'm tired of all this doom and gloom recently that seems to bombarding us from all angles and I believe it's time to start concentrating on all the good, important, HAPPY, kind, thoughtful, wonderful things that happen to us on a daily basis, no matter how small-hopefully this will rainse the spirits of all of us DFW's!

    Today, as most of you know, I recieved a whole load of girls clothes for my DD from a fellow DFW-and she wouldnt even accept money for the postage.

    I won't give the rude answer

    Actually, today I felt the black cloud which as been hovering for the past two weeks lift.

    After wandering around a busy city centre trying to find bridesmaid shoes for my DD's and refusing to pay £38 for a pair of shoes they will only wear once, we popped into a cheapy shoe shop for some flip flops and there, right on the display at the back of the shop, the perfect colour, soft ballet pumps for £6.99 a pair! That almost made my day.....

    But then we went strawberry picking and sat in the grounds of a local abbey whilst watching DD's pond dipping and running around like loons...the sun was trying to shine, the strawberries were sooo sweet and the grass had just been cut.....The simple things in life are so much more pleasureable.

    Walking in the rain across the campus at uni, seeing two squirrels playing, the leaves on the trees vivid green, surrounded by the lovely old red brick buildings made me think how much I love England even when it's wet!

    I won £30 on Mirror Bingo Finding out my little boy had won this weeks "Star of the Week" at his pre-school and my driving instructor saying that he thinks I'm ready for my next driving test. It's more than one I know

    Wife and I actually successfully managed to resist the temptation of a dominos pizza and feel much better for it. Every penny helps.
