I used to have a convertible (lol ... a 2CV - it was my mum's) but learnt to drive in another, a TR4 (my BF's at the time)- loved the TR5 and the TR6 too- but always regretted not driving at TR3.

The TR3 is a bit like driving a tractor, but you're as close to the ground as a go-kart. The TR6 is positively luxurious in comparison.

Re: I smiled because...

I'm watching a men volley match right now and I don't know what team I cheer coz many players, from both side, are from Brazilian team - Olimpic Games champions. They're really giants in this match

Re: I smiled because...

A friend in India has bought me an English garden!

It turns out to be a software program/game where you grow, plant and cultivate plants and flowers. It also gives you information about plants. It seemed a bit strange at first but it's kind of intriguing.

Once I figured it out, I wanted to plant the entire garden yet it turns out you can only do a certain amount of steps a day, in fact you even have to wait for your seeds to grow

I think she wants to teach me patience with this present.

Re: I smiled because...

Grass doesn't grow in my tiny garden and it gets worse every year.

Today my landlord approved to turn it into a rockery - that's gonna be so cool

No I haven't. But to be honest, these things are not really what I look for, so the english garden was new to me and - in connection with my absolutely hopeless real-life garden - I thought it was a sweet gesture to buy me one

Re: I smiled because...

There is no to-do list today. Not even something that I absolutely must do tomorrow, therefore I could do it today. Absolutely amazing!
Maybe I should put an empty sheet of paper where the list usually is to emphasize this miraculous day?

It's not a level. It's a peak. Life is an amplitude.
