Simple pleasures

I’ve been in a great mood all day today. So much so that I startled one of my colleagues by smiling at him in the kitchen earlier. Then he interrogated me for five minutes about what I was so happy about; for some reason he wouldn’t believe that I was just feeling cheerful.

Anyway, since last night’s post turned into a bit of a rant – which is ironic considering it was about people who rant on social media – I thought tonight I’d go to the opposite extreme and talk about a few of the things making me smile today.

  1. I got to wear trainers to work, which after wearing heels for three days straight was a treat for my feet.
  2. My train was actually on time. This is much more exciting than it sounds.
  3. One of my friends got really annoyed about something. Which seems like a weird thing to be happy about, but it turned out she was outraged on my behalf, and I love her for that.
  4. I got to write a positive review of a great play. And then the theatre company told me I was their favourite person πŸ™‚
  5. I don’t have anything to do tonight. So once I’m finished here, I’ll turn off the computer, put my feet up and watch last night’s Apprentice.
  6. And probably hurl abuse at the incompetent candidates. Because that’s always fun. (‘Are these shelves supposed to be straight?’ Classic.)
  7. It’s not quite cold out yet, but there’s a definite nip in the air and it’s pretty windy, so I’m going to enjoy being home in the warm, on my comfy sofa, with a cup of tea.
  8. And then I’m going to go to bed with a good book, and get to sleep before 11pm for the first time this week.
  9. Oh, one more – nothing to do with me personally but still great news: Pauline Cafferkey – the Scottish nurse who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone – has been discharged from hospital after making a full recovery – twice. She’s a fighter πŸ™‚

How was your day?

  1. Hey, great happy post! Love it and just what I needed after fighting thru this Pacific storm and a hugely long commute X town. Nice to read the account of your day. Well done for the continued Nano poblano…thing. πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Veronica, glad you enjoyed it, and that you made it safely through the storm. Hope the weather improves for you soon! I’m enjoying the challenge so far – only 18 days to go! πŸ™‚

    1. Absolutely! It’s really easy to get caught up in everything that’s gone wrong in the world, but there’s so much to be happy about too! Thanks for reading πŸ™‚ x
