Three things I am really quite happy about

#1 Post by Lifelinking » June 18th, 2010, 10:47 pm

Frivolous, serious, cheeky, contentious, whatever..


1. I was able to find some you tube clips of George Best, reminding me that football can be a beautiful game
2. The idea of ID cards in the UK was scrapped
3. Somebody I was a bit worried about has started communicating and writing again


any more?

Spoiler alert: this is pretty syrupy...
Spoiler:
1. That of the approximately 3.5 billion women on the planet I found the one that's my age, speaks English, is stunningly gorgeous, lives on my 'home' continent, and is my perfect match because she is passionate, empathetic, wise, intelligent, learned, patient, talented, artistic, and reciprocates my love. She is completely awesome! She also 'gets me' like no other. (Did I mention how awesome she is?)
2. That my son brings a smile to my face, joy into my heart, and laughter to my lips, everyday.

3. That the wind in my face and the sun on my cheek and the rumble of my v-twin can transport me away from the craziness of this existence, even if only fleetingly.

Mary' arm seems to be better at last, following her operation in March.

I'm slowly but surely getting the dog trained.

I've got my first ripe tomato of the year and it's not even midsummer yet.

Don't rush me!

I still can't see how on earth Denmark/Cameroon is of any interest whatsoever, compared with an England win over Australia, 21-20. :cross:

Ooooh! Excuse me! I can see some paint drying! :thumbsup:

What a lovely idea for a thread Lifey :) Today's things I'm happy about are, in chronological order:

1. When I gently woke my 103yr old client this morning she opened her eyes, looked at me and said "hello, it's lovely to see you".

2. The two lovely young people I married this afternoon wrote fabulous vows and spoke them clearly with passion. Not a dry eye :D

3. My youngest daughter has become a woman (but for goodness sake please don't tell her I told you :supershock: ) and I remembered where I put her copy of The Manual, "Our Bodies Ourselves", for this auspicious day. (which, incidentally, has a pic of our very own Big Mamma in it :smile: )

Oh, and Curtis, syrupy is fine by me, sniff :) If politeness is the oil of civilisation, then the heartfelt is the syrup of communication: sweet and slow....

Calling it a manual hardly seems appropriate!

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

1. I got an enthusiastic welcome from Archie the Springer Spaniel (as usual :D )

2. I am going to Brighton to visit a friend this evening.

3. So far as I can tell, I am not in today's Times' obituary column. (if I'm wrong on that last point, please don't enlighten me.)

The shower did not suddenly go cold half way through this morning (it has a habit of doing this.)

It was a beautiful day for a walk to the hospital.

According to my cardiac check-up I am still alive.
