I have been on my bike twice in row without falling of of it or breaking. Which is a record!
And the sun, and watching my kids play with a stomp rocket. Those things can really go!

My daughter, she’s 12, told me last night that she is not going to buy me a Mother’s day present, she need the money to buy a I-tune card to download music, she would rather draw me a picture and can I please not enter her room for the next few days because she is very hard busy with the picture. After that she gave me a hug and says “Thanks for understanding and I love you lots Mummy, you are the best”.

Superb idea Kittster!

-- 2 days ago I got a proposal on my blog,albeit a jokey one but still
flattered me
-- so far 6 mums have replied by email to attend the meeting in our
garden next week
-- I got on top of my backlog of work yesterday, big :D
-- might have found someone to share the hotel room with on my trip
to London this September
-- the newspaper i wrote for an anniversary celebration got a big thumbs
up from the committee

Isn't Life great and grand,when you value the small mercies :)

Wishing you all a wonderful day with lots of these tiny surprises, which will make you smile all day long!

...the growth spurt that has been making life hell for our 6-week old daughter (and her mum) for most of this week appears to have ended, so now we can all get some sleep.

- a meeting yesterday about a school festival turned into a marathon chat between a bunch of Aussies, which was very enjoyable

cheers

50CHF for a beach ball cracked me up. I am still chuckling over that, thanks for posting.

Things that make me smile this week:
  • Uetliberg. What a joy to ride up the hill in the morning, see the Alps, then descend single-track all before work.
  • Riding bikes with my kids to school. They "attack" on the hills and look so serious, I love it.
  • Sitting on the balcony with a delivered pizza at 8 pm and it was sunny and glorious and pizza delivery shops deliver beer and wine here, hurray!

Today I smiled watching the sun coming up over the Austrian Alps while I sipping a coffee on board the boat. There are worse places to be...

The last time I smiled (with mixed emotions) was when a tailgater rammed the car it was following that had slowed to let me cross the street..

(I hate tailgaters but did feel sorry for the good Samaritan)

What a great post! Nice to see so many people appreciating the little things.
I am smiling at the great weather and am very happy that most of the outdoor pools have opened for the season.
Sitting out in my unfinished garden but realising what a sun trap it is and how great it will be when it is done....makes me smile!
Have a great day!

A member of the forum put up a great thread with recommendations for builders in our area. He also replied to my questions in such a prompt and friendly fashion , it just warms the cockles of your heart.:)

Thank you Mark, Guardian Angel of the ex-pats. :)

I smiled because my officemate (3 kids) and I (2 kids) had a delightful discussion with a co-worker (very pregnant, first time) about kids and strollers. A few years ago I never would've guessed that I could've contributed to such a challenging topic.

:cool:

I smiled because a year ago today I nearly ceased to be here. Because I was in the right place at the right time my life was saved .

Now I smile EVERYDAY:)
