Re: I smiled because...

Because when I got home I was greeted by little meows and purring AND my flat is still intact after a whole day alone with a boisterous kitten (the other one is resting in her cage, maybe once she's allowed out, things will change...).

Re: I smiled because...

I went looking for my St.Christopher medal in an infrequently used purse and found not only the medal but a 20chf note!

Hooray for found money AND safe travels.

Re: I smiled because...

Oh! I also smiled yesterday because...


Hubby came home from work and announced he'd like to start taking (late) evening walks together. (I have to admit, I almost fainted first, but then I smiled. )

I'm a great fan of Weejeem - but I don't want him mounted on my ceiling.
Weejeem is male?

Re: I smiled because...

Most amazing drive from Martigny to the Col de la Forclaz, Aiguilles Rouges then down to Argentières and Chamonix. And return by the Vallée Verte to visit a friend and pick up an old table she wanted to get rid- return via Evian and Montreux. Boooooootiful.

Well someone had the munchies- I made 36 of those cantucci/biscotti biscuits, they are gone in less than 48 hours.
I'll change my avatar to show my grass.

Because my kittens like to sleep wherever I am. They follow me around and when I stop somewhere, they plonk themselves down and sleep. Adorable little creatures.

Re: I smiled because...

Was at the pub on Saturday to watch the mighty Liverpool defeat the Gunners . A North African I see in there a lot for the football came up to the bar, when asked what he wanted, he said nothing and handed over 5.-. He said he couldn't drink anything as it was Ramadan, but he felt bad about using the pub facilities. He wanted to pay what he'd normally pay if he'd had a couple of cokes.
I just thought it was a really nice, honest gesture.
