Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because yesterday I opened our door and found a bottle of Champagne (!), then went for a run in the woods and saw a deer family trot across the path ahead of me. I thought I was in some kind of feel good movie.
I am a little now though because the Champagne wasn't a gift from hubby as I thought, it's a complete mystery! The problem is do we drink it or leave it where it is for the real owner to turn up and claim it?

I've had a glorious day! In the morning, shopping in the city with my most sweet and lovely daughter. After that some "me time" at my beauty therapists place. Some more shopping (sans makeup and red-blotchy face from the facial...so sorry peeps if I scared you) and now waiting in the beautiful sunshine for my husband to collect me. Also, I programmed the bread machine to do some magic at this time, so, when we arrive home... Mm mm mm mm mm the heavenly waft of freshly baked bread is going to be there to greet us

P.S. I hope you're feeling better today MC <3

Re: I smiled because...

I said goodbye to my friends in Switzerland yesterday and caught the bus on a 10-minute ride to the station. When I got off the bus, their children were at the station to meet me. They had cycled all the way to say goodbye again.

Re: I smiled because...

Had a great sunny day in Solothurn- lovely, And very successful visit to the Lamal Versicherung - no more health insurance premiums for us, and all premiums for last 6 months re-imbursed. Hurray (in CH on UK pension- that will really help).

Re: I smiled because...

Ok, so I had a double take this morning...1st, a wench shoved in front of me in a ticket line and said I was impolite when I told her to wait. Major fail.

2nd was is this dude who basks for cash with an amp and bass. And it is actually eery and more than listenable. Too bad I am not looking for a bassist.

Re: I smiled because...

We were having a walk today in some woods when on the path an elderly couple walked towards us. They were in their 80s and the gentleman was holding the ladies hand as she was quite immobile.
They walked pass us and a little while later I happened to turn around just to see him gently touch her face and kiss her..

It was such a lovely tender moment to catch - it made me feel quite emotional..
