Re: I smiled because...

I've successfully managed to keep my 17 month old son away from tomato since being weaned (family history of miserable allergic reactions to the stuff) but he took a cherry tomato from my sisters salad on Monday and has not had any allergic reaction at all! I'm so excited about this

....the city of Zürich suddenly painted crossing stripes at my favorite jaywalking spot.

Now I save a good 2 mins on my commute/don't have to wait for breaks in traffic to get the short cut!
Me too, on the other side of the place.

Re: I smiled because...

when would you expect to hear the words "oh sorry, the person responsible for your dossier is on holidays"?

When trying to adopt a baby?
When applying for a mortgage?

Nope. When calling (about 120th time) those guys who promised to install a new hammam door. A year and a half ago. Apparently ordering the necessary hinges is not a simple task, oh no..

But, but - the door is being installed as we speak!

Re: I smiled because...

went to Colmar Christmas market with our dogs. Walked around, bought some crepes, told the dogs to heel and sit while we ate them. They did. A father with his 4-5 year old son were watching this.

Father turns to the son and says: "Look at those dogs. Did you see how well they listen? And why can't you behave like that??"

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because grand-son and grand-daughter phoned last night to say they would be arriving next Thursday evening - and they are so excited about Christmas with Granny and Granpa.

Never mind the snowboard, but get yourself some wrist guards and knee protectors, and stick a thick towel in your pants (at the BACK!).
And don't forget to report back -pictures please.

(I was 50 when I learnt - so I'm sure you'll be fine).

Re: I smiled because...

I want to be a glow worm
Glow worms are never glumm
It's hard to feel depressed
When the sun shines out your bum



I hope that makes somebody smile today. Happy Friday everybody!!
