Those dog lovers should've known better than to run such inhaling contests. Was the perpetrator a labrador by any chance?

It was a greyhound!!! The winner was a flat coated retriever

It WAS a special limited edition that I haven't seen since. I should have brought it over last time but left it behind. You probably wouldn't have liked it anyway, and it would probably have been bad for you

With my niece, her husband and their two children visiting it is a wonder that it survived for me to send later

I just wanted to know that I could have something it if I wanted it, now I know I can have it and I don't want it. Now, I want a walk in the rain and I am going to take it.

Well, I can't really reveal what I've been up to... it would just make my Uncle jealous.

Re: I smiled because...

Biggest smile of the day:

I found the peanut flips hidden on the bottom shelf in the kitchen and, with a bit of huffing and puffing, retrieved them all by myself!

Currently enjoying the spoils of my labour. Nom nom, as they say, nom.

Re: I smiled because...

... I could fit almost everything into the dishwasher and there were actually dishwasher tablets in the cupboard. Not a myth at all.

Re: I smiled because...

Yay! One of my oldest friends moved to southern Germany (only an hour from Basel) a few months after I came to Switzerland, and that made me really happy, too, so I understand how you feel.

I smiled today because I made it all the way to Bellevue and back again without any paracetamol!

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because even though I broke my arm and feel awful that I can't work for at least 2 weeks the neighbour who took me to the Spital was SO lovely and made me feel I really have a friend here I can depend on outside the family I'm staying with. The perfect antidote in an unexpected way to the sadness of seeing the first person I know in 2 months but him having to leave the same day! (That day also made me smile )
