Re: I smiled because...

my dogs have recently learned to open their food container!
so i thought id be clever and put it under a chair, thinking pulling it out and opening it might be beyond my girls but not so, found it open and empty this morning and i was only gone 2 hrs,
little monkeys.

Re: I smiled because...

I saw a google-street-view-car this morning as I was waiting for my bus.

I was smiling, so I hope the picture is good

Re: I smiled because...

I had a really nice lunch in a really nice restaurant with some really nice people AND I got to cuddle two babies.
Plenty to smile about there.

A woman in my A2 German class genuinely thought that "Hausaufgabe" = "working from home"

Yes I only cuddled two. Your gorgeous little one and one of the gorgeous twins but I did get to look at the other one a lot.
It was only fair to give the other ladies a turn for a cuddle too.

Re: I smiled because...

OK a proud mummy bragging post coming up.

Our son has just told us that not only has he earned enough points to get him automatically 'promoted' this year ( 7 out of his glass of 18 achieved it) but he also has the highest marks in his class.

Very very proud of him.

( given how little work he does and how lazy he is I have no idea how he achieved this but I'm incredibly proud of him nonetheless).

I had a stiff white russian down the throat.

Re: I smiled because...

Both daughters, sil and grand-children all coming for Christmas - first time we will be all together since we bought the house in 1999, as one daughter was living abroad and had to work at Christmas- all my dreams come true.
Happy Gwanny here

That's lovely Odile I'm really happy for you.
I didn't realise you'd bought the house so long ago, I thought it was more recently than that for some reason. Your first Christmas together in 15 years will really be something to celebrate.
