...although I got my car stuck in the snow this morning, I was close enough to home that my husband was able to come get me out

Re: I smiled because...

I had a surprise 25th birthday party for my daughter and we all hid so it was so funny to see the surprise on her face - even funnier was us all playing "Musical Chairs"!! Including a couple of pensioners - priceless!!!!

Re: I smiled because...

... the small chicken sold in the supermarket is labelled Mistkratzer (dung scratcher, or something like that). It's delicious and tender after being roasted for 70 minutes though. Just remember to remove the rubberband wrapped around the legs and parson's nose.

Re: I smiled because...

I gave Miss L-P her Advent Calendar (Smarties) and she gave the biggest smile I have seen in a couple of weeks- she was filled with joy, you could see and feel her happiness.

Then she said "oh Maman, you remembered... thank you!!". She was sincerely delighted.

She really is a good girl and becoming a fine young woman.

*another sheepish smile from me*

Re: I smiled because...

Because yesterday i was freezing and i went to a store and bought the first coat i could find. When i got home i saw that the sleeves were way to short so today i went to return it. The cashier said that i would not get my cash back but only a vouncer. Then I said I wanted my cash back. And she replied no. So I said again that I wanted my cash back because they didn't have other jackets for me and I wanted to use that money on a jacket. Then she said again it was not possible. Well, to make a long story short she called someone and I got my cash back. Then a beautiful man payed for my lunch

Re: I smiled because...

Because I found the furry boots a thoughtful ex-boyfriend bought for me ages ago (I'm ALWAYS cold) and am now wearing them in my freezing apartment feeling MUCH cosier. Pondering on whether I can get away with wearing them out and about in Zurich tomorrow - this is, after all, not St. Moritz in the Eighties. I guess it would make other people smile or, more likely, laugh. But I can handle that. Zurich needs some improbable footwear.

Re: I smiled because...

... the dog and I romped in the fresh snow. I wore this silly black faux fur ear-flap hat (a gift from other half), something like this:


With Begga's too short sleeved coat and Kittster's bear boots, we can have an EF anti-fashion winter parade.

Re: I smiled because...

just because.... I can't find the words..
Relief, I can breathe
Think, I think straight again
Feel, less intensely with more calm
Hurt.... yeah yeah but it don't hurt as much !
Laugh, oh yes
Love, always
and smile, just because I can
