Re: I smiled because...

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!

Re: I smiled because...

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”.

Re: I smiled because...

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
-- 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!

Re: I smiled because...

...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.

Here are several positive things from the last few days

- being able to cycle to and from school with the kids in the sunshine

- playing shops with my 4yo this morning and she wanted to charge me CHF 50 for a beach ball

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

cheers
Larissa
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...

Re: I smiled because...

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)

Re: I smiled because...

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!

Re: I smiled because...

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.

Re: I smiled because...

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.
