Re: I smiled today because

... I found a parking spot after driving around over 15min. Then found that I had no coins to pay the dam machine. A very nice lady helped me out and just paid for me!

Re: I smiled today because

My wife sent a video shot with her mobile in which our 2.5 years-old son sent me a hello and kisses and smiles.

No sign of any disturbance - so not a fox or cat. It must had got warmer, fed properly and re-hydrated, and able to fly off. Big smile.
I smiled because I had Chaffinch pie for lunch.

Re: I smiled today because

there was a ton of snow in the forest whilst out running and I followed deer tracks deep into uncharted territory rather than staying on the trails.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled today because on top of 1m+ of snow we had a fabulous hoar frost- and sunshine all day. Everything is twinkling with the most amazing shapes formed by snow and wind.

And I am smiling now because right in front of me as I type, a great spotted woodpecker and a bullfinch are competing for the most beautiful bird of the year on our feeder Magical

Re: I smiled because...

Due to a misunderstanding, a colleague had told a lot of people during a meeting (I wasn't there) that my boss has decided to transfer me to another office. And apparently, instead of everybody bursting into "Ding dong the witch is gone" song, there was an uproar and people promised to go and try to convince my boss to change her mind. Aww.
