Start of a new month, new experiences...waht's given you a smile today? anything?

My grandson 'phoned me...he actually broke off playing his computer games and '

Have you had anything to cheer you up? and remember folks, be nice. If you can't be nice be civil.

Waking up to a sunny morning and enjoying the peace and quiet at 6am with no traffic noise and just a fox down the garden crossing to the allotment and some birdsong. That makes me happy.

July already! where has the last six months gone? lol.

Just waking up in the mornings makes me feel good.

I really must get round to putting the snow shovel back in the shed!

We brought our new puppy home yesterday. She is absolutely gorgeous! What’s not to smile about? (the enormous puddle which went the length of the hallway when we first brought her in the house even made us smile - or perhaps it was my partner saying “oh my goodness, oh I say, oh crikey, oh will it ever stop ...” ha ha ha!

That great Raach.

Not a great deal different here, but at least the decorator came to paint the living room, only trouble is we have no living room until she's finnished, no TV!!!

Tranquility makes me happy. Out for an hour this morning walking with my dog and a short sit on a bench relaxing. Perfect.

Half the year gone. Time can pass far too quickly so we need to spend as many happy times as possible. I wake up happy and remain happy as long as nothing goes seriously wrong. I'm grateful for all the positive things in my life.

Sorry to hear that fosy, hope all goes as well as it can when you do eventually get to your appointment, thanks to everyone for recounting the small bits of happiness you found.

What fool shall say, "My days are fair,
God's in his world and all is well,"
When half mankind shrieks in despair
Worse than in Dante's flaming hell!

I cannot sing in happy mood
While hostile armies take their toll.
On these dark days I toil and brood
With starless midnight in my soul.

And yet, O World, O Life, O God!
I find myself, jest as the fool,
Believing in thy chastening rod,
Believing still that love must rule.
RAACH84  Female  Buckinghamshire 2-Jul-2019 17:26 Message #4743268
Thank you wonderoushen. I have worked hard for it but as we know hard work isn't always rewarded. Hope your living room is taking shape.

Tranquility makes me happy

Me too.

wonderoushen  Female  Gwynedd 2-Jul-2019 18:58 Message #4743275
All done bar the hoovering and putting the furntiure back, thanks Raach.
RAACH84  Female  Buckinghamshire 2-Jul-2019 21:07 Message #4743297
Thanks tumbleweed.

Wonderoushen. And your tv back on? I did my own wallpapering and got the pattern upside down.
fosy  Male  Leicestershire 2-Jul-2019 22:36 Message #4743302

its fine, i saw the funny side of it yesterday.

today was my "smile" day, 4 things i had been legally fighting or deferring, all came to fruition in my favour today...happy days !
wonderoushen  Female  Gwynedd 3-Jul-2019 10:44 Message #4743327
I can't do my own decorating anymore due to frozen shoulders and I hate wall papering, in fact I'm not that keen on wallpaper full stop. I've got my tv back which was good because there were 3 things I wanted to watch last night.
tsunamiwarrior  Male  Hertfordshire 3-Jul-2019 11:37 Message #4743355
Three things in one night wonderoushen. You weren't just happy - you were very happy!
Templar2013  Male  South East London 3-Jul-2019 13:14 Message #4743372
My elderly next door neighbour told me this morning she liked living next to me because it made her feel safe and felt she could call on me at any time. I havent done much for her except be friendly but when she said that it made be happy.
