Post by: japanesebaby on April 14, 2007, 11:33:33
sounds great, hope you enjoy it!

to be honest, i can't be too happy about anything today:
i'm being grounded by a severe flu which is pretty much ruining all my weekend.
and i'm sure i'm going to be just fine till monday, by the time it's going to back to work anyway...  :?

Oh Marika.
Sorry to hear that.
If I was over in Finland now, I would bring you a nice hot drink.
Take it easy.

Cheers.

Steve

HT because I have my new pornography t shirt  :D
The old one disintegrated (no pun intended), but I guess after 20 or so years, that was on the cards.
By the way. Roger Waters was fecking brilliant!!
Phone footage is unlistenable I'm afraid, but I'll see what I can salvage.
WOW!!!

hey that roger waters show sounds like it was pretty much worth it!
too bad they don't come over here.

i'll be going to see placebo in may - pleasedon't ask me why. :oops: i mean it, i don't even like them - but i guess it all  demonstrates the situation: too few good bands come and play around here and so you end up going to see all kinds of crap. uh-huh.

anyway, i'm starting to get a bit worried here since it's 4 am and i should be wake up and at work within hours...  :?
and yet i just can't :smth015....
i looks like it's definitely not going to be my day tomorrow...

Please try to do everything as you can to see Roger Waters there in Sweden. According to the map, Stochkolm seems not that far from Helsinki.  :)

oh yes, how did it go?: "a small step for a man but a huge step for mankind.. sweden here we come!" :-D

david, i will try. but getting the holidays is the problem. it wouldn't be so far by land by one needs to take a ferry to go over to sweden. that means it's 2 or 3 days trip at least. i guess if there was a land connection i guess one could make a one day trip. but ferry makes it slow.
and i have no money to fly. i'm broke! :(

Happy it Sunday morning 2:42am and ready to pop into a nice warm bed, I sleep with my dog by my bed,
and my possum runs, climbs and jumps around the house until sunrise, earlier sometimes, but i sleep through some of it.
Iam making a big home, running & climbing, jumping area of her very own, which she will love, with trees and branches, and then i can kick her out of bed in the day and pop her in her outside bed.... Little Princess sleeps in my  bed...Its warming up now, so she should be happy to play/sleep outside, although still be welcome inside too. 

And eventually after time, i can let her roam and play with other possums. The thought of that, after so much rehabilitation makes me happy- but its like a plant from a 'green house' you cant just suddenly chuck them outside, without adjusting first. :smth051

Love to go to sleep  :O zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Wow, what an accomplishment.

I also got a new dog over the weekend.

And one of these:

(https://catalog.kansaslavender.com/images/100_0650%20dream%20pillow%20cotton.jpg)
They're called dream pillows and they are loaded with different types of flower, it smells like a good cup of tea and relaxes you, supposedly.

Just what I need, some relaxation! After serving detention today, the littlest things are seeming bigger and bigger!

 :rocker Hey there Cure Freak,

Lunar Eclipse was 28 August 07, so almost a month ago- but thats probably what you meant to type.

There is another really nice site to see alot of photos of the eclipse -Blood Moon - and your b'friend takes a great photo :D

www.abc.net.au/backyard/stories/s2017860.htm   *There as so many pic's that capture it from all angles around Aus, but my fav is the one with a building beneath.-one at the top right of thumbnails.. - although it did look more dramatic to the human eye, but these are awsum non the less.

Don't get that when you download stuff.

:-D :-D :-D :-D

I love geting mail form people from other countries. I got  very dearing package from my BG ,last month. He ent me photos of himself, his art and his children.he has four sons. he also sent me some of his drawings and a braclet and something fromn his MM colection. I, also, recieved a nice gift from a dear Belguim friend of mine.

Thanks Silversand,  :smth006    I didnt even notice for awhile, secret is to stop watching the numbers- like i was-. . .  Then suddenly you look and oh wow,  :shock: :D

I still have penpals from Germany, and Poland, Miss my best friend in Holland-Saskia- we just lost contact both moving addresses, etc, while we were teenagers. Think of her often. Its nice to receive mail, or open something and smell it, even just a letter, ohh thats nice. I love to get 'Real' mail, Even writting shows so much about a person, I love it.

EDIT~ nope nothing on happiness today, but content, Rained in the afternoon and had a nice nap, And yey its tomorrow again  ;)

Iam not sure if iam happy, think iam dislexic- sometimes, ok all the time.....
I thought the above read-

Today is Thanksgiving, in Canada and my friends are strange and eating pins and roots ??? or something similar,
this always happens to me, during conversation aswell. (Hi Yanna, no offense, just my eye ball thing...its possessed)

So not sure if iam happy ? maybe twisted sounds more familiar.  :smth023

SilverSand  :smth006 -someones gonna be a master soon - just incase i miss it.  :smth023

So Steve- you are a teacher, did you like school when you were a student, aswell ?  I hated it, but only because i didnt know any better,

Yeh cats are so gorgeous and tempermental, i love that- similar to my little possum, i call her a cat most the time. Its nice she gives me beautiful cuddles, and sweet nose kisses, except gets a little too excited and starts to lick my nostrils out- I know yukee but gives her much pleasure ? so i let her do it. ? god that sounds strange- NOSTRILS remember and only my nostrils. !!   :lol:

But secretly, i know she is actually like a 'sucubus' :twisted: and **** my brain out, slowly and eventually removing my brain, Like the egyptians used to do to the dead, Its all through the nose.....
Eyes key to the soul
Nose penetration to the brain.?
I wonder how they got the organs out, slice and dice or anus ?   interesting.....

(dont let lack of friends stop you-that an excuse?) You are young, and beautiful looking, is hard to appreciate ourselfs, but you
should.  Psichonaut is right you do have time on your side aswell  :)  so dont be hard on yourself~ I be your friend  :smth054 we all friends.

I am happy because someone said something very kind to me when I was being an ass and complaining alot...I know I can be an annoyance and a brat, but I guess when you understand what I am going through in life it makes sense.

You know who you are, I appreciate the nice comment, especially after the whole big uncomfortable discussion about karma points and how I'm "overreacting"...I felt really awkward and put on the spot, but it was good to hear other people feeling the same way, and it cheered me up.

Heh, if only I had something to dress up in! Oh well, I guess I'll have my chance..when I'm older. Then I'll just look silly.

I don't really think it was an excuse..I also have severe social phobia. It's my fault so, I have no one to blame.

and I'm happy about..reading some of the topics, were quite amusing.

I understand AlluivialL, am very anti-social aswell, except for here and other cyber-places.

Just wanted you to realize that you do have everything at your feet, at your age the world is your oyster.
-is that the correct saying ?  I dont find you annoying or unhappy, i hope i didnt offend you before. (guess iam getting older, and thinking how lucky it is to be young)
I have that gift of conversation killing, and i sigh to myself when it happens, its hard to get out there
and socialize when feeling awkward as i do, But when i force myself it gets a little easier. Although never/rarely natural
-like some people- lucky ones.

Anyway iam Happy i get to sleep in tomorrow. Think i frightened the tradesman away by hiding in my house today.  :oops:
True. . . but later told him i was out walking the dog- all to avoid a useless and boringly awkward conversation.  :roll:

But nice and happy, content.  :smth023

Oh, no you didn't offend me, if anything I thought I offended you. I think I offend everyone.

You explain yourself very well, though. It's a good thing.. oh and by the way, having social phobia and being anti-social are very different.

anyway, I'm glad you don't find me annoying or unhappy.

Thank you AlluivialL,
Iam anti-social because of phobia- I used to and still do hate going out my front door, but thats another story...
got some trees removed, thought it would make it worse and it didnt? Actually more comfortable with the new space..strange thing i know... its hard.
Thank you though.  :)

Cant wait to see Cure Freaks halloween pic's.  :smth023  Happy B'day Roger  :smth048

Yes..I haven't left my house in a long time..

and you're very welcome.

I'm not an adult, so I can't just do whatever I want..lol. My parents are fairly strict, and even if I could leave..and go where I wanted, I don't think I could make myself.

Did you remove the trees for more sunshine?..more openness? Heh...I hate sunshine, I have heavy blankets over my windows, in my room. The sun drives me nuts, and being in California and all, it never goes away.

They made the ground too dry, keep the ones on the other side of driveway- for animals.
But not too much sun either, no way !! i would melt.

putting more plants in soon, after i dig in some fertilizer, smaller plants that are better for dry conditions.

That will be nice.  The openness of the front is nice, seeing the sky when i walk out.

Have a nice day AlluivialL  :smth023

IMPOSSIBLE!! us mums are different people.. you get a great one, an average one or a not-so-good-one, but we still love our kids..no matter what.. " over my dead body" I would do anything for my son.. try and beleive this.. i was probably ( some might say DEFINATELY) a troubled teen. You have to get through this, to emerge on the other side as the person you will become.. it takes time.. like a cocoon.. you will be a butterfly one day.. irresistable to all. :smth051

Your mum may not have tickets for Paris, but, does she look after you, feed you,  it's more than some can deal with, after all.. mums are just flawed same as everyone, we try our best.

here's ~hugs~ :smth058

Happy today because ...it's almost 6am and busy listening to the mexico recordings.. hearing the crowd there sing along.. priceless!! thanks J!

Yes..I haven't left my house in a long time..



@AlluvialL: me too: boundaries don't just involve parents but mental boundaries. I'm a bit like a vampire.. don't sleep at nite, sleep in the day..
if I don't have nitemares!! :twisted:

Parents just need to know for their own sake that u are safe. First hand experience here! e.g.  I have to make sure my son is SAFE. + I have psychological boundaries that prevent me from going anywhere 'new'. freaky, but true..  :smth100

On topic: happy today   because my son is home again, and I picked 2nd in Melbourne Cup today!! 4th year in a row!!

and.. my migraine   :twisted:  is finally fading, ergo, I can look at the PC without having to lie down.  :shock:

Haha! My mum has been really nice recently (not that shes horrible normaly just extra nice) but it makes me suspicious  :? and happy obviously!

Im happy today beacuse.... everything is working out, i thought this week was going to be really bad but its turning out to be pretty good, except that i stood on glass and got my feet cut but im still very happy!

I'm a mum.. but I wouldn't mind being adopted by a new mum.

Throughout my life, everybody else's mum seemed better and nicer and kinder than mine.. Still does.. Can I be adopted too?? I ask this to my friend's mum who cooks every week for the whole family.. my maternal mother won't cook for anyone!!

I'm happy things better with your mum. It kills us to think we are  not as great as we want to be, but life stops us from becoming the person we want to be, just as it does for the younger generation...

Response:  just pause and LIVE

Hero: I'm sure your mum is caring for your cut feet because she cares.  :smth058

Bleh...Migraines are the worst things ever. Thankfully I only get about 4-5 a year, but. I have chronic headaches, that are every day. I wish I could go the nocturnal way, but my parents make me get up in the morning, so. I usually end up getting like 2 hours of sleep. I know they need to know I'm safe, but I need some space too?
I think after I graduate I might have Agoraphobia. I practically do, but not severe.

Today has been brilliant!
There was a fire at school! In my class too! People were messing with chemicals and then my teacher casually said, you can make a bomb with that mix, then there was a fire in the classroom and two fire engines and the bomb squad ppl were called out and we got to go home early!!!
Then i went shopping and "lullabye" was on the radio in the shop (okay im a bit sad :-D) but it made me smile!

HAHA!! No, no glowing milkshakes...but that could be fun!? :D

Yesterday was one of my friends 18th birthday's but she couldn't have a party or anything because she doesn't get on with her parents. So we decided to have a surprise party but couldn't find anywhere to have it soo........We had a party in the woods!!! We had 1000 glowsitcks and decorated all the trees and lit up the path from her house to the woods (which isnt too far) and we had music and dancing in the forest! It was a little cold but so much more fun than conventional parties.

And i'm happy today because its sunday and its only 30 days until christmas (i feel like one of those christmas loving Who's from the grinch hehe!)

Hero - that sounds lovely nice idea  :smth074 -looking for a glowing stick emo-thingo.  :smth023

Me happy sort of, bit dull actually, but happy is ok with me. :smth050  My neighbors have all gone mad with xmas
decorations, and vegas style over done... but iam the only humbug in the street, just to early, I like candles and
the small fairy lights, but not too much.  Dont think i will bother much with that, i live alone, maybe if i had someone
to help put them up, and take them down...maybe... but ahh sunsets and moons i prefer.  :shock: I still like seeing it all
in the evenings though glowing through my windows.

Happy today; One of our little dogs, "Jimmy" has a suspicious growth near his bottom, and we were really worried. Cancer perhaps? Just came home from the vets., and all seems ok...just a funny little warty thing they think...no swollen lymph nodes, no internal growth...I looked into his funny little face and told him he was going to be ok...

And FINally, finally, the birds...the ones who swoop me, are using the damned bird bath!!
So..I'm happy... :D

Yum indeed! I too am feeling rather satisfied for culinary reasons -- I made cornbread today for the first time in my life and it actually... tastes like cornbread!("I like that in a cornbread" said my sister when I told her. She makes me laugh.) It tastes the way I remember it from 20 years ago when I lived in the States.
And my husband even ate it (he's usually not big on American cooking).
I feel disproportionally proud of myself.

I KNEW it...i just knew it!! That dreadful BINGO thing that was on tv here (We had to have it on, my Mum was staying with us!!) was RIGGED!!! Oh the joy!! It has been exposed as a sham, with very little chance of people at home winning. It has been scrapped, thrown out, never to return!! Ohh..that makes me happy alright..

And thanks to those who mentioned my little dogs' bum, your concern was very touching..of course, I am now obsessed with looking at the "thing" on his bot, he sees me coming and sits down..I pat his head and slowly make my way to his rear end, and he twirls around quickly and sits, staring at me.. hehe smart dog... Oh well, takes my mind off the...birdbath.... :lol:

Kind of...It's a southern thing, kind of like soft crumbly bread made with corn flour, but richer then regular bread. I don't know, Thanksgiving last week put me in sort of an American food mood.
Happy today because (this is gonna sound weird) my son and I didn't feel too well last night so today we skipped work/school. Now we feel ok and we're spending the day together at home, with a lot of snuggling and cuddling on the couch surrounded by our cats. :smth057

That sounds cute  :D   Is cold there at the moment ?

Iam happy because my friend the possum has found another little possum friend, who has been watching us outside for weeks. Now it has enough courage it comes very close, most curious of me, but is too skinny looking,

So i been feeding it, I know i shouldnt, but only once a week!!, And no more.  But its not as if iam going away or anything.

We have had birds that wonder around starving after someone feeds them, and suddenly stops and i then get stuck weening them off., If you are aware of this, and make sure they still do normal things it is not so bad.
I wont be patting her though. Never know if she might trust someone,  when she shouldnt.  (i know got the blabla's)

Anyway made me happy she can teach my sweet possum friend things i can't.  :smth050 :smth051

Awwww ROGUE that is soooooooo cute, little possum friends!

Im happy today because Thursdays are usually really crappy and boring so i decided they would be the perfect day to dress up for school. So today i wore a multicoloured tutu, silver leggings, fairywings and a pink leopard print cowboy hat! I love freaking people out. My best friends wore similar things and the teachers got really scared  :shock:
They think we have gone mad....sadly that happened long long ago  :D

"unless we tell them to, of course  :roll: ahh the color ahhhh STOP !  :shock:"  lol

we're spending the day together at home, with a lot of snuggling and cuddling on the couch surrounded by our cats. :smth057


That sounds cute  :D   Is cold there at the moment ?

Yes, it's cold and foggy today, that's the beauty of it. Snuggling-on-couch-with-kid-and-cats was expressly invented for days like this.

Wish I could see your little possum buddies, they must be adorable.

Edit: I don't know why I can't get the quotes to work right.

Have just finished stringing xmas lights along the roof line of our home. My darling man, up that tall ladder, patiently placing them "just right"...NO..over to the right a bit..down a little more...to the left to the left...that's it!!.. hanging them from the gutters, all the way to the opposite end of the house. Then, on a young eucalyptus tree which was sickly and laying on the ground when we moved in, we have placed more lights to sparkle and dance through its now strong branches. I step back, smiling, as we test them, make sure they work, and can see a faint twinkle in the daylight. We have no small children, they are men and women in their own right now, but I know the little kids around will see these lights and they will love them! We have them on a "timer", to come on at sunset.. We didn't do this last xmas, just moved in, way too exhausted and stressed to even care...but..this xmas, if I can make one little child stop and look in wonder at our small, yet pretty display, then I will be happy. And that makes me feel good....

Thanks Robiola~ they pretty cute and very clever too., but that video was a bit too long.  My dog loves the possum when she is away he worries about her, but the rest of the time they are typical brother and
                         sister, hassling each other.  Nice when they come together when frightened. But rarely they show that side.
                         In the night the possum sneaks in and to wake me up, opens and closes the bedroom draws shut, and if that doesnt work she goes and flushes the toilet about 20 times.  :lol:  too clever.

Ohh I love seeing the kids go mad accross the road to see the x-mas lights. But when the parents drive away they always smash into my letter box  :? It is a fullon display so i imagine they are rendered blind.
Really love to have those fairy lights, they're nice.  I love the small and pretty ones, that leave a little to the imagination, with some shadows and little lights, their nice and magical, mystical looking.
But the guy across the road is vegas-maniac.  :smth042

Also love Hero's forest idea, with the glow sticks, that sounds so magic aswell.  :smth050

Iam happy today, I heard from a friend that i missed.  :D :smth006 :smth050

Wow ROGUE your possum stories never fail to cheer me up! :-D
Im happy for a similar reason today, I got a letter from some friends in New Zealand, I havent spoken to them since i left 6 months ago and it was so nice to hear from them. Made me miss New Zealand a bit though because they said its nice and sunny there and today in England once again we have torrential rain and thunder storms just like this summer. I can't even tell if its summer or winter in this country anymore, the weather is so weird :? i wish it would snow! (sorry for the whinge about weather, its just what british people do!)
But i am still happy! And happy about christmas and ADVENT CALANDERS! And my friends horsey had a baby!

As some of you may know, I was having quite an issue with a birdbath in my back yard..it actually drove me manic, and reduced me to peering through the windows, adding branches to it, and sending telepathic messages to the birds, whom may I add, sat on the fence or in the tree just looking at said birdbath. To my partners horror, I became somewhat obsessed by the bloody thing, fretting over why OH! why weren't the birds partaking in the cool water on offer?? WELL...I am happy and quite delighted to report that after a couple of weeks, all the birds are using it!! whew.. I can stop grinding my teeth in my sleep now... Every morning, there is a family of Murray Magpies, beautiful little black and white creatures,scratching around the garden, the young ones demanding their parents give THEM those grubs!! They drink and bathe in the birdbath,and it makes me smile... The little Sparrows, nuggety, brown and brave, frequently dive into it, quenching their thirst then leaving as quickly as they came.... beautiful, shining Blackbirds also find their menu in our yard, and in the middle of a hot, still night, as we lay there, unable to sleep, we hear their song, and it somehow calms us and we drift back to slumber.... the Honey Eaters who miraculously hang from flowers gathering the sweetness, bathe in the cool water, flitting in and out, splashing water everywhere...and it makes me smile..... two wild Doves, the male bobbing up and down, doing his special dance, trying so hard to impress the female, who looks bored and ignores his advances, take a sip from the birdbath...
I am so glad we bought it... and now, it makes me happy....(even IF the Doves are using it as a "pick up" joint !!!)...it makes me smile....

:smth038  Good to hear, Melly ~ Yey finally.  Cheeky buga's watching you the whole time.  :shock: Its so nice and will attract alot of birds to your garden.
Glad you are full-on about it, makes me smile too.  :smth050 that they will never go thirsty.

Just wait soon a honey eater will be flaunting itself infront of your window, Thinking  'who is this attractive male, I cant get rid of him'  and he will fight and impress himself for hours  :lol:
trying to out-do the 'other' male in the window.  Cute.   ;)

Isn't it the best thing in the world to see them smile? :D

Pretty glad today because this morning at 5.15, on my third morning shift in a row, suffering horribly from lack of sleep, I had a customer who said to me "How lovely to find someone so nice and helpful and smiling at this horrible hour". It's nice to be appreciated once in a while, especially at an hour when I mostly just hear grunts!

Happy today cos later this week, we're heading to the "big smoke" (Adelaide!!) for xmas..it's a 400 kilometre round trip, but the BEST thing is...I will see my "boy" too..all 6'1" of him... :smth058.... we'll catch up with close friends we left behind, see my funny little mum ( some things that she says just make me laugh, unintentionally!) my gorgeous, brave sister ( going through a living nightmare re her hubby..so sad) my partners parents ( no doubt another hot debate with his father; bigotry and narrow mindedness at its worse!!) my "step-kids" ( two are really nice, the other is a shithead) but the very thing that makes me smile, lightens my mood and feeds my soul is being with my beautiful, funny, loving son. I miss him, but we keep in touch...but to wrap my arms around those broad shoulders, to sit and talk, and talk and oh! how he makes me laugh, to hear all his news, to see that handsome face, so intense at times, when he talks of troubles some of his friends may be having ( he has known most of them since he was 3 years old!) then breaking out into that wide, kind smile when we speak of the funny things which have happened to him over the last few months; I soak up his being, his presence, as we will be coming home after a short while, and he will be the last person I seek before we do, to get one more hug, one more laugh, to hear him say "love ya mum" as he drives away... amongst all the whirlwind of my life, the sadness and the happiness, the one thing that is constant, unwavering and strong..is the love and pride I have of my son......he makes me happy... :smth045  today and every day...

I'm proud to say that I love my mom. I hug her all the time, and (this is humiliating) when my friend was sleeping over, we got in a huge fight and I went and slept in her room.

NO, I am not a wimp, I was just raised to be very affectionate. It doesn't do me any good around my guy friends, because they call me gay. But when I have a girlfriend, I'm sure she'll appreciate it.

I am happy today because tomorrow is a half day of school, followed by a regular day, and I get Friday off! And then Christmas break from then on!

You know, I can't think of ONE of my sons friends who would be embarassed or ashamed to give their Mums a hug...and these are guys in their late 20's now ... (yeah yeah, I'm an old fart!! haha)

Hey there CV.. You are perfectly normal!! 
I have an absolutelty HUGE KING sized bed.. and ( my son would probably shy from telling his school friends this..) but i love it when he's on holidays.. and he jumps into my bed,he brings his 'teddy', and I have my 'leppy' ( the leopard'.. AND also our Cat climbs aboard).. it is just like when he was a newborn.. us mums love it.. he is getting a bit old I know, but.. loves the security from me, his mummy.. AND I know he will make a girl very happy when he is grown up, into a very mature young man. Without a father figure around.. MUMS do just fine in protecting and making sure their children feel safe and secure in the love that is without words.  :smth023

I take pride in my son , who is an intelligent teenager now, but with compassion to all those who are suffering..animals, humans, rainforests, environment, and he has great respect for his parents. He doesn't ALWAYS shy from holding my hand in the street, but he loves me, I know.. I can reduce him to jelly with a tickle in the right spots!! And the smile in return is what I live for.  :smth020

Have a great Christmas CV..  ;)

What made me happy today, other than my beautiful son, a day of laughing and fun,,.... just saw that in Melbourne BLACK BOOKS is back on the ABC at 8.55pm Wednesday nites..although I have the whole 3 series.. my digital-top-box-thingy is broken,... so need a new DVD and digital top box AND a new HDTV... will it never end???

Thank you guys! I actually feel like I got alot off me old chest!

I hate to brag, but I get tomorrow off, (my bro and sis need to go to school tho! sorry for them) and I am really relaxed. It feels like I just fell onto a crate full of hypodermic needles and then drank ten gallons of highly-caffienated energy drinks! It's a great/odd feeling.

Since my dad and mom split up, the bond between me and my mom has become greater, I always bring along my IPOD and share with her all the forgotten post-punk mp3s I find, gothic rock bands, and hardcore punk from the early 80s, and she likes it!!!

I'm glad you like my siggy too...She looks so cute and sweet in that picture, I can't bring myself to change it. Girly or not!  :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU GUYS!!!   :D

Happy today... we are home, after our journey to Adelaide for Xmas.. had 2 xmases, one with my partners family, one with mine...works well really. Caught up with friends, ate way too much, had some champagne with my sister,slow danced with her dying husband,( it will be his last xmas), saw my niece, her partner and 2 gorgeous kids ( saw them a year ago, they live in Melbourne) laughed, talked, hugged... But we are home, and it's a nice feeling.After the frenetic lunacy of Adelaide, it's nice to come home to our town.. which is buzzing with tourists, hundreds of them!! Ahh, but they help keep our little place alive!! It's freaking boiling outside ( we are having a few days of 100 degress plus!) but I am sat here, with a juicy ice-block ( don't let it drip on the keyboards!! BbBZzzZZZ PPffTTTT..there goes melly!) air conditioner on ( so cool) my partner snoozing on the lounge, two little dogs snuggled into him....the test cricket is on ( Aussie aussie aussie oi oi oi !) and all is peaceful.

A tax?? For belonging to a church?? That's just ridiculous!!! Does the church receive this money, or the government?? wow, I've heard of everything now!!!

Happy our government/churches don't have this...wouldn't affect me at all, (I'm not even christened..the Church Of England refused the person my parents chose as my god-mother as she was a catholic!! So Mum and Dad said "forget it"!!) but there are thousands of people that would be... I shake my head...money grabbing at it's best!!  :smth012

90% people is chatolic in Peru and I've never hear about paying taxes. Of course people can donate to the church, but that's not mandatory.




Thanks for your answer David :)



You are all so lucky you don't have to pay the tax for the church. I think the tax is for the state to get more money :). The tax is 8 %.

Happy today because...Lady really made me laugh!!   :lol:

Also happy today because I've realised yet again how lucky I am to have the friends I have and to live where I live.  I invited my small group of great friends over for New Years Eve last night.  I live in a gorgeous little rented house in a gorgeous little tree-lined street with a great view of Sydney Harbour from the end of the street.  About 1/2 hour before the 9pm fireworks were due to start, the lovely old lady who lives in the street (she's in her 90s)came to my door and invited us all over to watch the fireworks from her front yard, then made her way to the house next door to invite them along as well.  I was so touched by her generosity as she knew I live alone and so does the lady who lives next door.  It also gave my girlfriend's 6yo step-daughter a chance to watch her first Sydney NYE fireworks from a great spot!!  There's just something sooo special about watching the fireworks with a little person and surrounded by great people!!

Sorry to babble on, but it just made me sooo happy!!   :D

Happy today because last night we went to a party (we usually stay home on New Year's Eve, but this was a kids-included party so we went) and had a surprisingly good time! We watched fireworks from the rooftop and it was lovely, fireworks all around everywhere you looked so that you hardly knew which way to turn, my son loved it and so we started the new year happy together laughing ourselves silly.
So now I'm off to work with a hangover, but it was worth it!

Happy today beacuse i had a really good New Years Eve! Its really great being 18, i got to go to a fancy dress party at this transvestite club. It was a blur of feathers with  a drag show every hour it was a lot of fun. Then at midnight we watched the fireworks in manchester.
I hope everyone else had a great night :-D
Sues777 - That sounds amazing, new year at Sydney Harbour, i bet it was magical!

Happy today because we have a reprieve from the soul destroying heatwave..it's only lasting 2 days, then we are back to 40c (around 105 f)..but today, I opened all the windows, doors, letting the beautiful breeze cleanse the house.. we were able to spend time in the garden, the little birds flitting about, not sitting on the fence, their little beaks open, gasping.. I didn't have to refill the bird bath 5 times today ( as I do when it's really hot)... we were able to play with the dogs outside, enjoying the respite from the blistering heat..sitting out, with the sea breeze wafting through the back yard, cool, relaxing, not the hellish winds we have been having... so, so nice.....

Happy today....we ( my fella and I ) worked like dogs yesterday, laying new carpet in our lounge room...saved $100 a METRE in doing it ourselves...so, take down the ornaments, candles which sit on the huge TV cabinet, which also had to be moved...the lounge suite, chairs (big too!) coffee table etc.etc... clean all the skirting boards, wash the floor ( just vinyl was down)...he cut it, nailed it, put the trim on...took most of the day to get things back to normal...me, being limited in the old strength department, pushed myself to the limit...he with the sore back and knees after doing such a fabulous job...we fell into bed last night, exhausted...but happy...and to walk out here this morning, and see the beautiful, new carpet, made possible by some-ones generosity, made me smile from ear to ear...no biggy, I know, but now, after a year, we aren't walking on horrid old vinyl... my home is taking shape...a very nice feeling...   :-D

It is a photo I haven't seen in years, one where I am happy & smiling, before I became unwell. What a precious boy.

one day last week, a neighbours' 13 and a half year old daughter came to the door, and in between " oh, this is sooo embarassing" asked if I had a spare onion! Her Mum was cooking tea, cut an onion open, and it was rotten inside...  I told her to come inside, but " I don't want to interupt you" was the reply...I rummaged around in my pantry, and found the required vegetable, one left... with "thanks, this is sooo embarassing", I told her to tell her Mum not to bother replacing it, as we have a vegie garden...well, a couple of days passed, and the young girl was at our door, and I could see she had 2 onions in a bag...I opened the door, saying "Nooo, you don't need to replace it!!"...but she thrust the bag, and a card, into my hands and skipped off...Now, this single Mum and her girl are lovely people, Mum works,so we only really see her if she's doing a bit of gardening on the weekends, usually as we are taking our two little dogs for a walk, and we always stop and have a chat.... Now, this hand made card, obviously done by the daughter had " Thanks a lot", and a ribbon on the front..inside, it reads.." To our lovely neighbours, thanks for all your help, Love,...then their names.." We have always offered any help to this little family, ( as with any of our neighbours) if they ever need a hand with anything...and have, on a couple of occasions, been able to realise our promise.... but, to be given this lovely hand made card, over a "lend" of an onion, made me feel really good, and I broke into a smile...such simple things, put together with thought and kindness, can make such a difference... and it made me happy...

Hey scatcat...I have the same problem. I dont really know how to utilize the smilies to their full advantage, so I think people misunderstand my intentions...I always thought the rolly-eyes guy was like a playful thing...like "Oh, you silly head!" something like that...but I guess it's more like,"Whatever, loser"...

Please, I only mean well!  :) See, that smiley indicates all is well.

:-D That indicates that I'm really happy or something cheered me up.

:lol: All that means is that I think something is funny.

There, no more conflict!  8) (That one is like, "Peace and love")

I've noticed there are different ways to use rolly-eyes ( :roll:) here....for istance I use it to indicate something that makes me dream, or something good I'm waiting for..so it has a positive meaning for me...I don't know if this is right and I really hope people understand what I wanna express!!! :-D

happy today cos when we come back from Adelaide ( 400 kilometer round trip) some very dear friends whom we haven't seen for quite some time are coming to stay in the caravan park down the road, to see us... really looking forward to it... just what I need I think....

But.. I have to say this- though I may think i will be a scary mother-in-law, my son has a very admirable strong will, and likes to make his own mind up + choices.. so .. I'll probably melt..   :smth089



exactly..!!  you just gotta sit back and let them be... it's hard sometimes, but hey, we all did it!! although I must admit, the girl with the piercings down the back of her neck made me look twice!!   :shock:

Last weekend my friend called me up and told me that he found an IPOD video classic (80 gigabytes).

He really did, and now I have it! I am really surprised at him, it's such a kind gesture on behalf of a friend. It's even more memory than his own IPOD has, and yet he decides to give me this one.

I am happy as a clam!!!  :-D

HT: because my son wants to join up to greenpeace and become a vegetarian!!
(he soo takes after me.. at the same age ,13, i wanted to do the same..)
he actually wants to be a vegan : no animal products at all.
thank god my speciality is vegeatarian foods!

when he was born, my family teased me that i would turn him into a vegetarian.. but he's made this choice on his own!  :smth023

he doesn't like the fact of where meat comes from, and feels sorry for the animals. ( even fish and chicken!)
the tough thing is.. his Dad has no idea how to prepare vegetarian foods.. cos I used to cook them when we were married.  :roll:

so.. tofu on the menu starting next week, he already doesn't drink cow's milk, or eat eggs.

also one other thing: @melly.. we had tonnes of rain here yesterday/last night, so things are cooling down a bit here.. hope it does for you too.. in this "sunburnt country" of ours!!
Title: Re: Happy today because....
Post by: melly on February 21, 2008, 10:21:32
good on your boy!! There are so many delicious vegetarian dishes, you are only stunted by your imagination...it's NOT like what a lot of people think, just lentil burgers and celery sticks.!!.. yummy food that's so good for you too!


Rain?? what's that?? It  has gone right around us...not a drop...a drip..... nothing.... the earth is parched....the farmers are walking off their land.... :smth011

BUT I'm happy today...my "boy" is truly in love...he has told me he will be asking his girlfriend to marry him before too long.... and she has a little boy, only 5 years old...he adores my son, and when I saw them together when we were in Adelaide, it brought a lump to my throat... I am so proud of the man my son has become..... makes an old gal happy...... truly does... :smth050 :smth045

I have a focusing problem.. my eyes just get too tired and I can't read for too long, ( i have trouble reading and writing for too long without them!)
but my new glasses ..trendy new frames picked out by my bambino.. so i feel really cool now.  :smth023

I'm just happy! I just got a new poster of Dead Kennedys from my friend yesterday, and we went to see "BE KIND REWIND"  :-D

For some reason, I felt really hateful and depressed about myself yesterday. I wanted to kill myself, and I felt there was no way out of my miserable life and that I was never going to make it anywhere!!! :shock:

BUT THEN!

I realized that it was because I hadn't taken my perscription meds that morning (and skipping a day puts me into a wild mood swing, just like the album), and so today I took an extra pill and I've felt great all day...a tad tired at the moment, but that's because it's past 12.


P.S. Just to clear things up, I don't "abuse" meds or anything. I take what the doctor perscribes for me. I don't want anyone to get worried, thinking I'm a rapid pill-popper! (although I made it sound like I was didn't I? lol) :)

Peace.

Happy tonight because I get Monday off!

It's been a hectic week...a kid I go to school with was diagnosed with Cancer. (He'd been missing from school for a few months) and a teacher's husband died. I will write about that in the sadness board for those who want to grieve with me.  :cry:


So, not the kind of week I like to have at school. I was overcome with sadness and dread, a feeling spreading through the school like an epidemic. I hope he's alright, he was a great guy!

But the Monday Off somehow makes that feel better...somehow...in the back of my mind. Time to recouperate and get my head straight. Peace, everyone!

Well, as I stated in the "Sad Today" thread, all is well with the student who was diagnosed with cancer. He's back in school, and seems to be doing just fine. I hope his treatment goes well!  :)

Today, as well, I got a discount at the local market on a 12 pack of COKE. The lady just said, "You know what? I'll let you borrow the [extra change] today."

They've been pretty good with letting me off the hook when I'm a few dimes short!  :smth023

Happy today because... I'm going to the concert in Milan tonight! My husband and I had been planning it since November, and then 10 days ago everything started to go wrong: from work they said they wouldn't give us the day off they'd promised us, then when we fixed that my husband had other problems (of a personal nature, I won't go into it now), then a few days ago --car trouble (we were going to drive up), then we both got the flu, now I'm better but my husband isn't so I made plans with a friend who would take his ticket and get us to Milan by car, then yesterday she called me and told me she was running a fever.... Aaaargh! As of this morning at 10 I still didn't know if I would make it to Milan tonight! I was really depressed. But now it looks like everything is ok and in a few hours I should be there, if nothing else goes wrong!
Please wish me luck.... Somebody up there doesn't want me to go this concert...?

wish you luck! and just don't pay attention to the man upstairs (that is if he's even there... at least i know what i think of that...) - i hope you get to go and be there!  :smth023


you know what happened to me when i was about to leave to hamburg concert (15th february)? well i bet you wouldn't believe...
ok, something TOTALLY unimaginable happened, something that shoudn't have been possible,  which is that i missed my plane in the morning of 15th - that's right, i did! the plane was going up in the air and i was on the ground! oh god!  :smth087
and ok, it was my own stupid fault completely, i don't blame it on anyone. but just imagine if i was shocked...  because i was not just about to miss the concert in hamburg  but also the one in berlin as this was a combined trip. that was a pretty awesome feeling, sitting there and thinking like "oh my....!!!!". and of course i had booked cheapest possible economy plane tickets which means that you cam't change/switch flights. so i lost all the money on those original tickets, both there and back again... "oh, just what i needed!" *sarcastic tone* and by the way, if you might wonder, no i'm not a rich person, not at all... so it was a complete catasptrophy also financially.
but against all odds, i made it to hamburg in time. and hey just don't ask me what it cost me - but i made it!
and i remember standing in the crowds there in hamburg and hearing the distant bells of'plainsong' starting up. i remember thinking "it was worth it, it was worth it...". i really had no difficulties to enjoy that gig, i can tell you. :)

that was surelyso  a horror story in the making there - i hope we get no more of them!
and i hope everything works out the best way for you!  :smth023

Jb, it gives me chills to think how much you must have spent to get to Hamburg after you missed your flight (I work in an airport, I see these things all the time).
But if you made it, I can make it too! And since it's been so difficult, I personally think I should be rewarded with the elusive Faith encore we've all been waiting for here in Italy. But really, it's my first time -- they can play anything and I'll be happy. :-D

it was damn awful situation and if one thing is for certain it's that i must make sure it will NEVER happen to me again! i'd like to keep it as onece-in-a-lifetime experience...

i always end up having these quarrels with god... :sigh:
the man upstairs: "japanesebaby shall not go to hamburg and berlin!" :twisted:
me: "shut up - and watch this!" :smth019
:-D


ok, it was a lot of money, some of my friends here at home told me it was madness... but like someone told me there in hamburg, the money i sepnt will be just water under the bridge after time passes. but if i had given up and accepted my fate and stayed home, i know i might have regretted it for the rest of my life... so it was not an option.

Tomorrow, I am staying home. My school feels they need to punish me with countless sentences in dentention for stealing apples from the Daycare contained within our school building...Come on, they're just apples! And not to mention, today I went apesh**, was kicking lockers, swearing, shouting, and I toppled over a trash bin on my way out, followed by a sweet "F&^# You ALL!" before I stomped out the front door.

See what that place does to me? I'm so docile and sweet when I'm not there, but those kids, the teachers...they drive me insane! They're so hateful and rude and one-sided...it's like being in first grade again.

After telling a teacher to F-Off, I don't really want to go back anyway, I'll have to face the sentences in dentention. I guess hiding out like a fugitive isn't a good idea either, but at least I won't feel like I'm being tortured.

I've mentioned before how ignorant, prejudice, and obnoxious my peers are...but it's gotten worse (one in particular, the others are mostly my friends). This kid will jump at any opportunity to insult me to my face, even in front of teachers. I could be completely silent, minding my own business, and he'll get in my face and say, "HELLO, FREAK! YOU LOOK RIDICULOUS! YOU'RE SUCH A NERD!"

And when I retaliate, he gets all defensive and scared and says, "Teacher! He's picking on me!" WHAT A LITTLE PRICK!  :smth011

My mom thinks they are being ludicrous, therefore is granting me a day off! YAY!  :-D
Sorry if I upset anyone.

Carny:

Take a step back and relax.  I know it is hard not to retaliate, but don't do it.  It just fuels their desire to push your buttons even more.  The best way to shut them up is to strive to do better in life than them.  There is one guy that used to pick on me furiously growing up.  Finally in 8th grade I snapped and beat the living shit out of him.  Anyway, I see him around periodically, and let's just say that he is definitely in a lower class of society than me (to put it bluntly).  I take great satisfaction in that (even if it does seem a bit elitist!)

A prime example is related to hockey.  I guy slashes you with his stick, you retaliate and slash him back.  95% of the time, you will get the penalty because the ref saw the reaction, not what provoked it.  Unfair, yes, but that is the way it is.  Life is alot like that as well.

I'm happy today because i just got home from Crufts (the biggest dog show in the world) i was there for 4 days and my dog came second in her agility competition :-D 
But that happiness was short lived when i had about 30 emails from the same person who won't take a subtle hint like "F*ck off I'm not interested" and keeps trying to make me like him when he even admitted himself that he looked like a rat :smth011

I was curious also. So I arranged to send some stuff to see what he can do.
I'll keep you posted how it turns out.
TBH my AV amp simulates surround sound from stereo sources & it is quite good for concerts with all the crowd atmosphere.

I just thought about this a bit more.
Some DVDs of really old films have had the old DD5.1 treatment somehow.
All the old James Bond films for instance.
& then look at something like The Wizard of Oz. Is there not a DTS version of this?
I don't think the original had anything more than a mono soundtrack either.
Some seriously good gadgets needed there methinks.

Actually, this has been done quite a lot with stuff from the '50s and '60s...

By the same token I've also heard a lot of complaints about these fake stereo mixes. Unfortunately I don't know of any specific examples, and I've never had the opportunity to compare the before and after results.

It has been a beautiful, beautiful day (weatherwise) today... the sun was shining, a gentle breeze.. inspite of mother nature doing her best to make things difficult, the raging winds, the 100 plus degrees not that long ago, the garden is awash with colour and looks lovely. The bees are busy on all of the flowers, the birds are bathing in the birdbath, ladybirds are seeing to the aphids making an appearance; seeds I planted just a week ago are breaking through, so my winter crop of vegies are on the way. A day to sit back and appreciate everything. Cool nights, warm days. Just perfect. Sometimes, it's the small things which can fill your soul and lift your spirits. such a lovely, lovely day.
And it  made me so happy....

Tomorrow, (Friday) is our anniversary...17 years. Wow, that has gone so quickly, honestly. Second time around for both of us, but we are soulmates and feel like we've been together forever. Met at a school cricket match...both our boys played for the school... wasn't looking for a relationship, was quite happy being Ms. Independant. Well, that changed. We're not married, for no other reason than we never got around to it!! Nothing against being married. But, after 17 years, I think we qualify as being an old married couple huh? Probably go out to lunch, see how I feel when I wake up... but, I'm happy...very happy...
(and as I'm typing this, he, sitting on the couch, just let rip   :shock: ...oh he's a charmer alright!!) *laughing*  if you can't fart in front of each other, it's not true love..excuse me, I have to go...outside.. to get some fesh air!!

I GOT TO READ EXTRACTS FROM MARK E. SMITH AUTOBIOGRAPHY!!!
I SIMPLY ADORE THE MAN AND I THINK HE'S AMONG 5 OR 10 MOST IMPORTANT MUSICIANS IN ROCK AND ROLL TODAY...





(http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2008/04/15/fall10b.jpg)




Drugs

I am one of the 3% who was made to take speed. It helps me sleep. It's not a big problem for me, but I can always tell when people are writing on drugs. On speed it's all nonsense.

I did heroin once at a party in Manchester in the mid-80s, just to be sociable. I started writing, thinking, "This is the greatest thing ever written." Then I fell asleep. I woke up some time the day after, thinking I'd written the masterpiece of all masterpieces. I felt like shit, told myself I'm not taking that again, but at least I'd got this work of genius. And then I started reading it, or trying to read it - this four-page epic. It was a mess. I'd fallen asleep on the fifth page. I didn't even know what it was, whether it was a song or a story.

The only hangovers I've ever had were off ecstasy. It's not nice. It's like going to hospital and being drugged up when you've had an accident. You're drying your brain up with that stuff - it's like a sponge. You feel sort of high, you go home, but in the morning it's as if you've eaten a lot of dust. I remember in the Hacienda days when you couldn't get any drink or speed - they'd all be dancing around and touching you. What the f*ck is all this about? I don't need to feel like this. I can feel like this in hospital. It's like a gross antidepressant mixed with speed. They all want to love everybody.

I'm not a big fan of pot, either. It cuts people off from their feelings, like Prozac. You've got to come out some time. At least you know where you are with booze. You drink two bottles of whisky and wake up in the morning, you know you've done something wrong.

Firstly, for those of you who detest Police for all they stand for, look away, don't bother reading this, it's not for you.
My beautiful son has been accepted into the New South Wales Police Force. He has worked so, so hard to achieve this, the long hours swimming, running, weightlifting, ensuring his personal health and fitness is as good as he can get it. We live in South Australia, and he was rejected by this Police forces' "Integrity committee" because of speeding fines he had as a teenager ( he is 28 this year).. ludicrous and unrealistic, but, that is their policy. He was so disappointed,crushed infact, but, as I say to him "never give up, never give in!"...so, he applied to the interstate force. They have all his records, he underwent a rigorous series of medicals, then, 2 weeks ago, he flew to N.S.W. for the final testing day. A 600 question physcometric test, along with vigorous physical tests. He's made it. His dream is coming true. He starts at the university beginning of June, so, he will be leaving within a couple of weeks. I have shed my tears, at him moving so far away, but my heart is surely bursting with pride for my only child. He wants to work with street kids, to try and help find missing loved ones, to support and treat with care and respect those who will never be reunited. He will see and do things which will affect him deeply. Lets' face it, police regularly deal with the dregs of society, the illegal and the criminal, the crushingly sad and the hopeless. But there is a huge upside to it all too. Whatever he has to face, I know he will do it well, with compassion and genuine concern. I will miss him. BUT we will make the journey over there, don't worry about that! We are close, a magical bond which I treasure. Of course, I am a little frightened for him, would be unnatural if I wasn't.
So, for any Cure fans over that way, if you see a devilishly handsome copper, with broad shoulders and a broader smile, that's my boy.
and we couldn't be prouder of the man he has become...

just thought I'd add...incase you're thinking "Oh, isn't he a mummys' boy"... he hasn't lived with us for years, we are 200 kilometers away. Was just him and me for a while, and we are very close. I guess like every parent, if our kids are happy, we're happy!! I know what he's been through the last few years, and he has always held his head high; as the saying goes, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"... and he's one strong dude!!  :-D

those 'mummy's boy's' you refer to melly.. end up being the best role-models, and husbands, fathers, grandfathers.. i know my son is going to be a fine young lad ( if i don't kill him during these teenage years!  ;)).. jokes aside, these boys we are raising.. the respect my son has for women, and his mother ( me.. :oops:).. he has no sisters to 'dag' on him or torment him.. and he is so far turning out a beautiful young man. ( he has his own mind and spirit.. determination.. and they are qualities you cannot teach!.. they are qualities that are totally aspiring)  ;)

I would be as proud as punch , to see my lovely boy ascent to a wonderful human being..
nurture as much as nature..  :D

thanku scatcat...you brought tears to my peepers reading that... and OH! those teenage years..my stepson is 6 months younger than my son, so you can imagine what those years were like!! How I have any hair left is beyond me...and that what I do have left isn't pure white!!
I'm happy that BOTH of them didn't end up in big trouble...touch and go there sometimes!! Years go so quickly, one day, they are boys...you blink...and there is a man...

I'm happy today because we have been forecast rain..good, soaking rain over 3-4 days...a small thing for some, but where the earth is parched it is indeed a blessing!! Our local farmers are ready to sow their crops for next season, and this rain is exactly what they need! They will be out in their paddocks until late, turning the soil with their machines, looking to the sky, waiting, just waiting, for those much needed drops...

You must be awfully proud... it's not easy these days to raise kids, so many pitfalls... you've done a great job obviously -- and it's the most important job we'll ever have, isnt't it?

Thanku too Robiola, yes, rearing a child is the most important job anyone can do, and I am well aware there are some, even in this forum, who have lost a child, ( I cannot even begin to imagine THAT pain)so I am, indeed, truly blessed that I have a son.
Speaking to my sister on the 'phone today, I just burst into tears...silly, I know... talking about him leaving, being further away...  :cry:


But the rain came, soaked the dry land, and it smells fresh, new..the plants are standing tall, everyone is walking around with grins on their faces, and our rainwater tank is full!! Go into a local shop, and the conversation immediately turns to the "fantastic rain we had on the weekend!"... just love being in a country town...and it makes me happy...  :)

Guess what!! We have won a $100 hamper from one of our local supermarkets!! Was a national competition, and this morning a guy from the promotions department from Woolworths ( the chain) rang and told us the good news!! YAAAAY! Entered it ages ago, forgot all about it! Couldn't come at a better time... fabulous! Lucky me!   :smth035 :smth038 :smth039 :smth041 :smth026 :smth031

Maybe you can meet up with someone from this forum who is going to the show!

Hey, if you feel up to it, no doubt going to see The Cure is good for the soul, and you gotta keep that healthy too. Just make sure you don't tire yourself out too much, eh?

Good news Cure Freak!  Robiola's right - I think it will be good for your soul!  I actually went to the 2nd Sydney show alone, but it wasn't bad at all - I made firends with 2 of the people sitting next to me and ended up going out for a drink with them afterwards.  You never know... ;)

ps. tomorrow is the longest days of the year: today the sun has risen at around 4 am, sets at 23 pm. :D

(that guy is the coca cola cap in front of me, on that video... curse him, what an idiot he was: for instance, for some weird reason his pants suddenly fell down to his ankles in the middle of 'sound of muzak' and he was standing there and shouting to everyone "what the hell happened to my pants! what the hells happened to my pants!!" - hey come on wtf  just get those bloody pants up and shut up dude!

Yees, we were playing with fire a little bit, weren't we? Fortunately we can blame it on being young and...a little crazy I guess...  8) If your parents ever read this ( :shock:), no hard feelings! We meant no disrespect.

Anyhow, it was great meeting you DJ, I'll never forget it! We were so lucky I happened to be going on vacation where you live, that's a one in a million (see, how could we not have met!?)! Too bad we didn't get that much time in SF to talk in peace and quiet (next time), but among other things we got to exchange some CD's and, in silent tribute to the band that made it all happen, walk around in SF wearing our Cure tour t-shirts, hehe (a couple of months back, we both commented on a youtube video of The Walk from the MTV Unplugged show in 1991, and later started writing to each other). Wouldn't have happened without you guys!

you mean the pants thing? well actually what i meant was that that's exactly what i HATE about festivals: all these f*cking freaks ruining some performances that you yourself have been really waiting for for months! i do know festivals are festivals and there are a lot of things that can happen and you just have to deal with it and try to take it casually, but the truth is that i didn't go there to see this guy's "pants performance", i went to see one of my favorite groups to play. 
so i really could have kicked that "pants guy" straight in the balls (hey actually i should have because his pants were already down so i could have hardly missed...  :twisted:)

(i know one peaceful PT guy who actually did punch a similar kind of idiot straight into the face during 'anesthetize', just because that idiot was babbling to his ear all through the set. and no thtat guy is not a violent guy - there's just a limit of what you can take, even in a festival surroundings...)

He just had an exam which was 50% of this terms pass marks...and he received a "distinction", ( exceptional, if people don't understand that mark).. he also did a huge assignment on law, and received the other "distinction".

okay okay, I know I shouldn't, but I'm going to have another "brag"... my boy messaged me today, he received a " high distinction" in a law exam... not much to be happy about lately, we're in the grips of foul winter, been really sick, had an operation, fed up with the cold weather, the ol' arthritis is crippling... then to receive those messages from the person whom I love beyond words can say, well, makes the sun shine and gladdens my heart... so proud and so happy he's found his niche in life.. he is where he is meant to be...

You go ahead and brag all you want to -- I'm very happy your son is making the sun shine in your life, I didn't know you'd been sick and had an operation! Nothing serious I hope. Winter sounds so good to me now, though, it's so *£k%&ing hot here!!!!

Well, today here we had 37 degrees, and it's incredibly humid too...sure you don't want some?
I'm happy today because I rediscovered a Cure song I'd never given much thought to, and it has recently become one of my feel-good songs...High! It just puts a smile on my face.

Ok, I screwed up the quotes, but you know how it went.

Ha, I love it when that happens! Good for you. ;) I recently realized that I've been, well, ignoring Doubt for quite a while. Just started listening to it again, quite like it. Release the British fury!  :x

Anyhow, I'm glad cause I just got sent two Cure bootlegs to bite into; one from Toronto, and one from Madison Square Garden, New York. Both from 2008. Yum. Monday evening is saved.

yeah, I'm back again... it is one year today (6th.August 2007) that we were, as I type this, meeting up with friends and distant family members at a pub just a short stroll from the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. After a few champagnes, we lined up to enter the building where a band I had never seen live before were going to be performing in an hour or so. The excitement and anticipation in that arena was palpable, as we got to our seats, I felt like a kid let loose in a sweet shop. Chatting to each other as we waited, suddenly, there was a roar from the crowd, the lights dimmed then went blue, and there they were. And so began a journey I will never forget.Didn't take long to have us on our feet, moving with the music, screaming and clapping like we were teenagers again. What an amazing night. We left, ears ringing, spirits lifted and our souls reverberating with the ever changing sounds the band delighted us with for three hours. A night I will, personally, never forget, and this memory makes me very happy...

'Courage' is not an emotion or feeling, it is a result of facing fears and what may lie ahead..  during trying and 'testing' times we are sometimes needed to gather an inner strength. 
This is known as Courage.
It takes great courage to take that path sues777 !!    :smth023

u give hope to all that need a 'nudge'..    :smth020

trust.. all the best,,  :D

I had long ago hooked up with my first 'true love'.. after almost 15 years later.. although we knew each other soo intimately , after dating for years: .. there is some baggage.. sometimes in the form of previous relations ( engagements, marriage, kids, etc..) .. we will remain friends for life.  :smth023

It IS TOTALLY EXCITING!   8)

I hope that you both can appreciate the lucky timing now, and both have reached a potential time in your lives , where this can prosper!  :smth020

Good luck, my friend!  ;)

thanks. :) i forgot to say that it was work related traveling, so it was rather tiring.
the only good thing was that this other city has better music stores than where i live so i always came back with a bunch of cds (as a kind of consolation - oops! ;)).

Well to continue my story of the doctors carving in my body, I got the reprt today and there was nothing severe with the little lump of fat they removed from my neck. Just a lipome and no sinister tissue.

Today I went to the "prefecture" to ask for a new, or better said, a duplicate of the resident permit I lost. Unfortunately my class finished a bit late, and when I arrived there was so many people that they told me to come back tomorrow tuesday morning. I was so upset...

But in the afternoon things got better. First I went to the "Fanzinoteque", a place in Poitiers where they have hundres of music fanzines of France and all the world. As you know, The Cure played in this little city in 1980 and 1981. No recording, no ticket, no information at all besides the dates (which I knew about throught cure-concerts.de)

But guess what? There was a guy arranging some documents there and I asked him if there was anything about the Cure show back then, any poster, some flyer? a copy of the ticket... and the thing is that THIS GUY WAS AT THE SHOW. He has the ticket and in a couple of weeks I will meet him to make a scan and a little interview about his experience in this concert -a curefans.com exclusive 8)

And he promised to search if there's more info about this gig. Cool!!  :smth023

And then I went to the center. A friend told me there's a section of "lost and found" objects behind the Municipality of the city. I went there, and the woman ask me when do I think I lost my wallet. She searched... and OMG... "yes, there's a wallet found in... belongs to David Sánchez" :shock:

Actually, a police found my wallet near my house. Probably it falled from my pants when I was going back home, cause it was found in my street!!!!

Ohhhh... that was the best news ever. I felt so relief. No more tramits, and my travel to Belgium goes on next week. I am sooooo looking forward to be back in that little sweet country  :smth026

See you there, Trust! :rocker

No perhaps not. But I have to say that there were more killing in these two minutes than I remember from the whole book. And from reading the book you didn´t get any guidelines whatsoever of what had happened. You just have to put up your own worst case scenario.

Still, it´s a very good and quite scary book well worth reading and I hope that the film will be as great as I expect it to be. The first trailer I saw wasn´t so filled with action. It took a deeper glance at the scenarios and the feelings of being an outcast in a wasted reality.

I couldn´t help but take a picture of the entrance of my school with no students, no sun and, so far, no summer.

i'm really not sure whether i should post this into this thread or in the "sad today because...". anyway i guess this one's the right one:
i am happy because i was just able to see NIN twice in germany, in düsseldorf and berlin - and not some poor man's shortened festival sets but both were real genuine bad-ass NIN shows. :rocker :rocker
:rocker
and as it's their farewell tour, now i can die happy.
simply terrific gigs, i really do have to say the best concerts i've ever been to. an extra bit of an emotion and energy on both sides i suppose, on stage and in the audience. it was really pretty emotional and energizing, watching the show last night and knowing it's probably the last time ever you were going to see it all and hear those songs live, waving goodbye.
i am so grateful i was able to be there but i am also :smth022 :smth022 :smth022 as a very important and close-to-the-heart sort of a book has been closed now.
thank you trent thank you thank you thank you and wave goodbye :smth006


beneath the stains of time
the feelings disappear
you are someone else
i am still right here...

Just finished "Mamma, pappa, barn" of Carin Gerhardsen and now I´m on "Ruling Passion", a classic by Reginad Hill. And then there´s always Cormac McCarthy and his Border Trilogy.

what did you get? knowing it's you, it must be something nice.
i've been thinking about getting a new one too. then again i'd want just something small that fits in one's pocket, so i'd be nowhere in the same league with you. ;) but i really hate my old olympus by now. especially since it's crap in low-light conditions which makes me grind my teeth because i'd like taking concert pics. and newer pocket cameras have some nice features, like possibility to choose exposure settings maually. i hate the old ones where just about everything is automatic. 
but i'm afraid i don't have any extra money right now to buy anything. :/

A Canon 40D for just 700 Euro. The price might get even lower now when the 50D is going to replace the 40D. Basicly it´s the same camera, just added 4,0 megapixels and from what I heard the sensors are said to be even better on the 50D. But still, the 40D is a GOOD camera. The lens...Well I decided to wait on that.

i've been thinking about getting a new one too. then again i'd want just something small that fits in one's pocket, so i'd be nowhere in the same league with you. ;) but i really hate my old olympus by now. especially since it's crap in low-light conditions which makes me grind my teeth because i'd like taking concert pics. and newer pocket cameras have some nice features, like possibility to choose exposure settings maually. i hate the old ones where just about everything is automatic. 
but i'm afraid i don't have any extra money right now to buy anything. :/


Yeah, money is always King. But there are lots of good small cameras out there. I got one myself, an oldie, a Canon PowerShot A 450. It still takes good pictures but I know that there are compact cameras out that are way better than that, and to a stiffer cost unfortunately.

This is good. In this little cornaer of Curefans I can still keep sending posts and yet keep Donald´s number.

actually i've been considering some canon powershot models. the problem is i'd like to have something that has at least 10x optical zoom, would include 28 mm wide angle, possibility to manually choosing the exposure, possibility to film video clips in HD - and preferably would use AA batteries (and not an akku). so, perhaps i'm just wanting too much. ;)
maybe this isn't so bad, although doesn't have everything i'd wish:

I think that this could be what You´re looking for. Even if the zoom is just half of Your request.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=144&modelid=17624

Since You understand Swedish I´ll give U this one to:
http://www.canon.se/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_Camera/PowerShot/PowerShot_G10/index.asp

This is an absolutely Darling. When and if I get another compact one, this´ll be my choice.

thanks for the links fiction. i bet that canon g10 is a good choice for a camera. it lacks a higher quality video option though, which i'd really like to have (even many smaller pocket cameras have even HD video quality these days - some with mono sound though which i find really dumb! so one needs to make sure one doesn't get fooled with the "HD video" alone. it's not always quite as blissful as it might sound like. for instance the canon sx200 that i mentioned above has just mono sound - but well i knew there had to be some catches there, for that price.)

anyway, i'm afraid that i do need to settle with something a little bit cheaper though. i've been spending a bit too much on running around europe this summer. :-P
i know i won't get anything quite as great with less money but i just have to live with that i guess.
btw i wonder how those newer panasonic lumix tz models are like? i guess there might be some catch there too, to be found...
anyway this is on the brink of turning into a camera thread soon... (but btw maybe we should have a separate thread for cameras/photography? there seems to be a few people around who take pics every now and then.)

anyway, on topic:
happy today because it's (still) summer and i don't have to do anything at all.  :)


ps: that car is funny lol  :-D
@david: it's about household services.

I was merely thinking of the name "Dicks" which in english is the name (in plural) of, well You know, the thing with what a guy pisses with.

But it is as jb says, a firm that deals with household services such as installing fridges and washing machines and the firm´s name is Dicks (Dick is a rather common name in Sweden).

Cause since 12 o´clock today (CET) I´ve been cleaning my fu...ng kitchen. The time is now 16.44 (still CET) and I thought that by now I would be finished with the whole apartment, but I just finished the kitchen some 15 minutes ago (given a 25 minutes recess while skipping down to the local liqouer store to by some beer). Why Happy Then? Well my kitchen is shining as a diamond reflecting the sunrays and the beer is cool and..., well I´ve obviously managed the roughest parts of my cleaning voyage throughout my flat.

Happy (and a bit prous aswell) because I´ve corrected all my students national tests in swedish concerning understanding of written texts and soon to be finished with their national tests in writing their own texts within given subjects. Pfuii! And outside the sun is striking hard on a 15" thick carpet of snow. Sweden is actually a beautiful country during the winter even though you can´t see the actuall country because of all the snow.

No exaggeration, it is amazing how many people will at first mock the cure, and then become huge fans.

I had a mixed tape (yes... tape...) of mostly Disintegration/Wish/Mixed Up tracks and my friends used to make fun of me for it at first. They thought they might find me hanging from the rafters somewhere (since cure fans apparently commit suicide so much!) But many of them eventually asked me to make them a copy :lol:

Thanks for all your support and advice :D Yeah I hate it when Cure fans are sterotyped like that, but once they hear the actual music and the range of emotions (not just sadness) they (hopefully ) will see that the Cure are so awesome!!  :smth020 Will update on progress, hopefully will find at least one person:)

I've trained with the guitar and then put it down more often than I can count.

It takes me about a week to develop callouses on my fingertips, but I actually prefer the first few days without them because it feels like I can better feel where the string are beneath my fingers! If I ever get good at it, I doubt I'll need such minor advantages though.  :lol:

I've owned guitars for around 14 years or so but I can't really say I know how to play well. I know a few songs and that's it.
Title: Re: Happy today because....
Post by: Tilda on September 15, 2010, 17:17:00
oh i wish i was able to play at least a few songs.......and i don't even have my own guitar, i borrowed mine...

plus 14 years of having a guitar or two (even without playing) is more than i can look back on...but i am looking forward to being able to play the songs i like in 14 years...

we start with songs for little children but i want to learn how to play songs for the older people like me...and i want to sing to it...

Oh well there nothing special, they are just a really cool looking pair of black boots (I think my almost knee high converse look cooler) but the boots were a great find. Each one has a zipper on the side so I can just slip them on and off with ease. I found them at Urban Planet, if anyone is interested in getting themselves a pair. Shoes are the only clothing items I can stand shopping for, and it is rare for me to find something I like. I will be sure to wear them if I go to a Cure Concert, (which I hope will happen someday!) My friend is in England now, I will miss her but she will come visit in the summer.

Wow, we can't do that here - I mean, yes we can ride 86km (in theory, but at the moment it would kill me I think, we had the flu really badly recently and are still recovering fitness), but in Australia we could ride 20,000km or more and still never get to another country unless we had some kind of amphi-bicycle...

You're talking not only to a Cure-enjoying household, but also to a cycling household - but not as serious as you.  When I was a whippersnapper, I time trialled for a bit (outdoors trials), and toured a lot, and generally rode my bicycle everywhere because I was dirt poor and couldn't afford a car, or even a driver's license for one, till age 21 - after university.  The silver lining was that I got incredibly fit, and didn't have such a huge carbon footprint.  Have you ever seen that cycling saying, "Burn fat, not oil"?

The longest distance I ever did in a day touring was 120km.  It took 6 hours (it was as flat as anything) and there was a lot of wind.  I think I could probably do a 50km (flattish) ride at a stretch these days, but would have to prepare seriously for anything longer or significantly hilly, because I no longer cycle everywhere... Our current regular training ride is a mere 16km... laughable, I know, but we're planning to stretch it as the weather improves... why can't there be 40 hours in a day?

I gather it's mountainous where you cycle?

Are you watching the Tour de France?

Happy today because:

-It was finally nice and sunny after several days of grey sky and refrigerator temperatures that made me wonder if we were having a nuclear winter I'd missed by not watching the news

-I trimmed eight donkey hooves in the one session, which means these guys are fine for the next month.  Let me introduce you to Nelly and Benjamin:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47977354563_0b941ca631_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2g6Au1k)

Benjamin knows he's really cute... he has zebra characteristics, like leg stripes, and the appearance of his head...

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47977310457_f17d295929_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2g6AfTT)

These two donkeys (a mother/son pair) needed a good home late last year, and because we already had three donkeys, we were asked.  You'd think anyone who's got three donkeys wouldn't possibly want any more, but after visiting these guys, we couldn't say no...

Our three original donkeys we've had since 2012, and they came from our Donkey Society, whom I'd dropped a note saying I was available to adopt some donkeys in need of a good home.  This group came up because the owner had health problems, and she wanted her donkeys to stay together as a group because one of them (the spotted one) is blind and needs her friends as guide donkeys.  Meet Don Quixote, Mary Lou and Sparkle:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/3929/32835254696_d6f27b955b_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/S2xgfY)

Donkeys appear to have Easter Bunny and teddy bear DNA and greatly contribute to the happiness of all the people I know who have donkeys.  They are such characters.  And the noises they make... :rofl

Further reasons for happiness:

-Sushi for lunch - we did smoked salmon and cucumber today

-A nice morning walk with my husband and our dog, who was chasing the tennis ball everywhere

Jess the dog:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/4493/37614858282_61f9c0ae1e_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/ZiTYTm)

And with us on a mountain climb recently:

(https://live.staticflickr.com/1828/42751350974_d2fbfcfb50_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/288MRdb)

I'm not bothered if people know what we look like; I contribute to a lifestyle magazine and we've been regularly in print, with photos, for years, even to the point that my husband got recognised and stopped in the supermarket last year! Just to clarify, that's because the alternative lifestyle community in Australia is smallish and fairly connected.

-The drainage ditch finally got completed - there's been a curse on it, I swear; for weeks it's been raining on me every time I go out to try to work on it, but now it is DONE!!!

- And we're watching Loch Ness to see whodunnit; next episode is later this evening!  ;)

This is just the main points.  I could go on for hours about birdsong and fresh air and all the basics of life being lovely.  I mean, I used to do gratefulness journalling and that always turned into a long list that included things like the colours of the feathers of the birds in the garden...

Hope you all are having a happy day. :)

Do you think Mary Lou (the Irish long-hair that looks like a yak) is the donkey most likely, of our donkeys, to join The Cure on audition?  She's got style, she's got the hair, and she's very musical.  I don't have a film of her...well actually I do, but not one that shows all her singing talents... (I'm not suggesting she should or could replace Robert Smith, but she'd make an excellent backing singer... :angel )


I think she was being shy because I had a camera.  This is Ben, a little less shy but still not at full roar with the camera out:


This gives you an idea of asinine musicality... :angel

Quote from: SueC on July 27, 2019, 13:42:15and generally rode my bicycle everywhere because I was dirt poor and couldn't afford a car, or even a driver's license for one, till age 21 - after university. 

this is interesting to read because now that I have a very good economic situation I ride my bicycle more than ever (1000Km this year so far) and although I can afford a car, getting one is the last thing in my mind. After all, if I didn't need a car in 40 years, I suppose I won't need one for the remaining of my life. Plus this city is so small that I literally can get anywhere in 15-30 minutes (by bicycle) :)
Title: Re: Happy today because....
Post by: SueC on July 30, 2019, 14:47:09
That's so nice, @dsanchez, to have such bicycle-friendly cities!  :cool Munich was like this, and we drool when we see places like Amsterdam on documentaries, with their cycling culture.  When I rode everywhere, I was in Perth, Australia  (for university, then I went and worked in the country) - and that was OK-ish, except traffic in Perth is like LA and it's a problem getting clean air when breathing on the roads, especially nowadays!

On the whole it was a good experience to be forced by circumstances to cycle.  It's just, winter was appalling - riding in rain and hail without high-tech stay-dry clothing and no hot showers in our facilities - I carried a change of clothes and a towel in a plastic bag in my backpack, and swapped my saturated clothes into the plastic bag and then tried to get warm again...

When you live in rural Australia, it's a bit more difficult to cycle to work, as the distances are so great.  For example, farm to town is 35km for us, 20km of which on a highway with inconsiderate drivers that I wouldn't want to ride on (I stick to quiet back roads out here; Albany itself has cycle paths and lots of people living locally are now commuting, some with e-bikes because of hills and lack of shower facilities at work).

Happy riding! :)

Isn't it just?  We sometimes watch the Japanese news on our international channel SBS here, just to watch them bow at each other and listen to how they speak.  There's something so nice about having that kind of courtesy as part of the culture.  And speaking of Japanese things, I want to show you the cutest thing... it always makes me very happy to watch this... and how architecture can change everyday lives... hope this makes your day! :)


I'm happy today because we woke up in time to watch the dawn - the last stars twinkling in the sky and then light suffusing everything, and the sound of the kookaburras, who like to sing at dawn.  I challenge anyone to hear their call and not smile! :)


Because the above clip doesn't show an actual singing bird (but has that lovely rollicking group call that they get into where they egg each other on), here's a clip of an individual kookaburra making its sounds!

...because Richard Stanley's new movie is now official and get its first screening in Sept.! (I met Richard a few years ago in France and he's a cool guy. He was hit by bad luck in 1996 when a production company pulled him away from a film he'd written the script for and thus ruined his career - now he's finally back!)

Once again, happy for R. Stanley:

https://www.slashfilm.com/color-out-of-space-interview/
QuoteAfter crafting cult genre curiosities like Hardware and Dust Devil, South African filmmaker Richard Stanley was presented with the opportunity to break into Hollywood productions with a big adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer. But things didn't turn out as planned, and Stanely found himself fired by the production - a saga chronicled in the documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau. Stanley then stepped away from feature film directing for over 20 years.

Now, Stanley makes his return with Color Out of Space, a big, weird adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's tale of terror The Colour Out of Space. The project finds Stanley working with Nicolas Cage and Joely Richardson, and the three were on hand at the Toronto International Film Festival where the film had its world premiere. Stanley, Cage, and Richardson spoke with /Film about what makes this particular Lovecraft adaptation so special.

Happy today because I finally finished digging and prepping my dedicated rhubarb bed.  Three half days!!! I was thinking, is that price worth eternal rhubarb self-sufficiency?  Most of the first two sessions was just removing the African runner grass mats...  :1f62d:  Then digging fairly wide, deep trenches to loosen the soil and incorporate manure etc...  :-D  and putting wood chips on the sections between the growing trenches.  Tomorrow I transplant my seedlings from the greenhouse that are ready to go out, as well as two older crowns that will benefit being moved from their previous spot.  No photos of that yet, but here's a shot of our food garden.

People often ask if we have giant spiders when they see this photo.   :rofl   We have to put nets over our fruit trees in Australia because otherwise the parrots and cockatoos and a whole bunch of other birds will eat all the fruit and leave nothing for you!  So we net and after harvesting leave some smaller fruit on for the birds.

And some of what comes out of the garden:

It's so nice to see where other people live! :)

@Ulrich, most of the land around where we live is flat too - it's so ancient, most of it has been eroded down.  We have two mountain ranges - the Stirlings, which is what the photos above are of - there was crust movement to raise that lot up a looooong time ago - it's metamorphic rock, formed from sedimentary rock in the first place.  We also have an even lower, very eroded range called the Porongurups, made from igneous rock - that granite range is over 1 billion years old and used to be islands in a sea when sea levels were higher - we're due to visit those again sometime before Christmas and will post a photo or two then.  And all along the coast there's little granite monadnocks, rising up out of the flat land much like your Kaiserberge - have you got walk tracks on those?  The view off those would surely be great?

That's a nice early autumn shot of yours - the crops are harvested - nice colours and some room to breathe - not like the spreading suburbia on the rural-urban fringes in Western Australia.

@word_on_a_wing, that looks like a lovely spot you are in!  Are there good walking tracks on the Dandenongs?

It's (relatively) flat where I live (on a high plain, but there is a steep climb where it ends/starts), you can see a bit of it on the photo to the right side.

Yes, I have been to one (there is a castle and a church on it), one other has nothing on it (but I think you can get on it) and the other has ruins of a castle (but when I go there I need to call/text my mate first, who lives nearby, last time I tried he wasn't available)...

Yeah if you drive up into the mountains there are plenty of different forest walks. I've lived in the foothills of these mountains for 34 years of my life (wow!) I feel like they are dear friends watching over me. This view is from a lake about 10min drive from the foot of the mountains. I walk to this spot and around the lake at least once a week... many times while listening to The Cure, especially Disintegration (which feels a beautiful fit with the expansiveness of the scenery). 🙂

Did you see the Guardian article, @MeltingMan?

I'm hoping Alex Zverev will trash Roger Federer tonight - they're playing as we speak.  I always go for the underdog.  Oooh yeah!  He just got his first break against him!   :smth023   I will be very happy if he pulls this off.

I'm happy today because I managed to catch two swarms of bees yesterday.  One really big one, which will make honey for us by Christmas.  And a small one, which may not survive, but I'm giving it a chance anyway.  We've got three existing hives, but last year we took no honey for the first time in eight years of having bees, because we were in such drought that the eucalypts didn't flower.  The honey they managed to make was needed for their own survival (we won't switch it with sugar, we only take truly excess honey and in a normal summer that's buckets and buckets of honey).  This year, the eucalypts are flowering early, so we should get a lot of honey.

It wasn't much fun shifting one of the boxes after nightfall, because my clothes snagged on the lid and it came off, and angry bees came out, and I had to put the lid back on quickly in the dark, which unfortunately squashed a lot of bees on the rim of the box, which upset the hive even more.  I carried the box very carefully after they'd had time to calm down.  I was so relieved when the box was in its spot.  You have to move the box to where you want it the same night you catch a swarm, because they take their orientation flights the first morning and reset their GPS then.  Anyway, very happy to see the bees going in and out of that box today, commencing normal business.

Here's a double-happy:  With our happy dog playing "The Wiggle Game" on our Sunday hike...


Often she will lie on her back and start wiggling and pointedly looking at me, at home, so I will come play... We thought we'd catch one on film. She was very happy because it was a walking day: 18km through sand dunes on the Bibbulmun track, from the Wilson Inlet to the sea and then back again. Took us four hours, breaks included, which wasn't too shabby, but when we got home, after showering (the humans) and eating spaghetti (all three of us), we all just went to sleep for two hours, in the middle of the afternoon! Honestly... I suppose we have to make concessions to midlife. We don't get home and clean the house after something like that anymore - we go home and enter a minor coma instead. :rofl

See, @dsanchez?  No reason to worry about your age.  ;)  Congratulations on your miles!  :smth023  And that's a fabulous clip, good for her! :cool

That age-worry thing is a funny phenomenon, you know.  I felt so unbelievably old when I turned 25.   :rofl  :rofl  :rofl   Quarter-century and all that.   :1f631:   And then 30... OMG.  But by 40, no worries.  I just see it as a bonus now, considering that I would have been long dead by now as a caveperson.  And it's a pretty excellent bonus!  :cool

I honestly think that for me, that early age-phobia was due to my parents having a bad attitude to ageing - I remember my father's howling when he turned 39, everyone always catastrophising over every wrinkle and grey hair, my mother always remarking, "OMG, hasn't such and such aged!"  My husband's family weren't like that when he was growing up, and he's really mellow about all this, which very much rubbed off on me.  We just laugh about it.  We had to get reading glasses early this year and Brett was running all over the house with them going, "Sue, come look at the doorknobs!"  :rofl  He was like a kid with a telescope.  The up side of failing close vision is that you don't seen your wrinkles in hard focus anymore, bwahahaha.  So now I can iron something without wanting instinctively to iron the inside of my elbows!  ;)

We're not up to your bicycle miles this year, but we're very happy to have gotten back into extensive hiking, where we're averaging over 100km a month.  This is great - of course on our first two-week holiday together in 2007, we did 200km of hiking tracks in Tasmania.

(https://sue.coulstock.id.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/IMG_4015.jpg)

That photo was taken by a Yorkshireman wearing shorts!!!  When we asked him, "Aren't you cold?" he said, "No, it's warmish today!" and his girlfriend laughed.  :rofl

So my official happy for today is that one New Year's Resolution worked out well:  We got back into hiking properly.  :smth023

... I spent a great evening (well, half the night) with old friends at a gathering of people of the same age in our town. To my surprise, when I was ready to walk out the door, the door bell rang and outside were old school mates of mine to pick me up on their way to the gathering (they'd sent a FB message a short while before, but I hadn't seen it). So the evening started off nicely!
We then met so many familiar faces (and some unfamiliar ones). We ate and drank as well, but the most important thing was chatting to many people we once knew, but lost touch with long ago...

Very tired, but happy after spending much of the day working with bees.  We took honey for the first time in nearly two years - last year the drought was so bad the eucalypts didn't flower, and the bees could barely collect enough nectar to get them through the winter, so needless to say we didn't take any (because we won't substitute them with sugar, it's not good for them).  But this year, the blossom is great, and after nearly forgetting the taste of our own honey, we ooohed and aaahed afresh over how excellent it is (you can't buy honey this good commercially because commercial bees are hothoused and the honey is heated for processing - we cold extract from hives that don't get shifted or fed sugar, and the honey is multifloral from several dozen wildflowers including tea-tree and eucalyptus, with a little lavender from the garden hedges thrown in).

I uncap the frames in the kitchen before they go in a hand spinner.

We've been doing this since 2010 and usually have around four hives.  I'm also happy because I caught another swarm today, the size of a soccer ball and really worth catching.  It was the easiest one I ever caught - sat on a low branch and I just knocked it straight into a box and the queen went in first go, so I just closed the lid.  By evening they were flying already. :)

Happy because today is the 12th anniversary of when we were engaged.  Usually people remember mostly their wedding anniversaries, and ours is coming up in three months, but we remember our engagement anniversary too because Brett proposed to me on a mountain climb, at the top of Mt Toolbrunup, which is a spine-tingling climb in Australia's Southwest.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48731130768_6a2e96fd0a_k.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2hfcMpN)

It's being pointed to in this photo, taken recently on a neighbouring peak.  I might add one of today's photos later - but we're a bit too tired to deal with photo downloads at the moment.

Anyway, we spent all year getting back into proper mountain shape so we could climb this really strenuous track without needing an ambulance afterwards, and I am happy to report that we did it, and without feeling awful on the way up - but I did have to stop a heck of a lot more than 12 years ago, because for some reason I'm not a young whippersnapper anymore!   :-D

2.5 hours climbing, 45 minutes having lunch and reminiscing on the peak, 1.5 hours descending.  Neither of us have the slightest bit of buyer's remorse - we'd do it all over again.  If anyone out there thinks they're never going to find the right person, that was us, until our mid-30s - but then we did.  Also we know people who found the right person far later in life than we did.  There's nice stories coming out of old people's homes too.  If you're still looking, don't give up!  :)

Have you been hiking, @Ulrich?  Those are lovely photos, thanks for sharing!  :smth023

I'm happy today because I'm sitting here with an enormous soup mug of jasmine green tea with a teaspoon of our own honey (which is super yummy) and a big creamy dash of real cow's milk that didn't come from the supermarket.  Just heavenly; really needed that because I've just returned from trimming a set of horse hooves all around and that was really really hard work because the horn is like marble this time of year and the damn horse didn't want me to put his hind leg on my leg for support, and it's so hard holding it up with your arms and then using the nippers at the same time.  Ever tried holding up a bottle of beer straight in front of you?  Think you can do that for five minutes?  Try it, might surprise you...  :1f635:

Anyway, he's trimmed now and that means I don't have to do him again for another month.  It was good to get that done on top of a solid work day whipping the garden and grounds into shape.  :)

Thank you very much! Not really "hiking", just a "walk" up the hill to a castle and later, to a spot at the edge of a "mountain" (where I took above pic).

You have castles, @Ulrich...we don't, but I suppose we have cave art tens of thousands of years old.  Some of it is great, but I did see some that looked like ancient graffiti!  And I bet there was ancient graffiti, too. :)

We've finally uploaded some photos from that mountain hike I said I'd append. This is from the re-climb of Mt Toolbrunup on the 12th anniversary of Brett proposing to me on the summit of the thing.  It's miraculous we can still get up there, bwahahaha. I have a walking stick now to save my knees on the descent.  :P

If anyone likes to see these sorts of landscape photos from the West Australian wilderness, there's more on the source site which you can get to by clicking on the photos.  And no, we're not on holidays (as some people have asked me), we've just been walking regularly on weekends and Brett's days off this year, and not been taking many photos of anything else...

And I'm happy today because Brett just came home and this time next week will be on holidays for nearly two weeks!  :)

We have lots of caves here too (even one in the town where I live), some of 'em can be accessed. I'm sure there's some art graffiti in one of 'em too.  ;)

Very nice!  Although that female-body sculpture makes even the Barbie doll look normal... :angel  I wonder if the sculptor was male or female... :angel

Australia is mooted to have the oldest cave art in the world, estimated 50,000+ years (Aboriginal people have been on this continent for over 60,000 years, longer than Europeans have been in Europe!).

This is more recent:

Ok, when it comes to "cave paintings", you win! You can be happy about that.

Ha!  I read another article on cave art, and it appears that Australian claims were overstretched. Possibly it has cave art going back 60,000+ years if the indigenous people got busy painting caves soon after arriving across the land bridge, but they've either not found stuff that old or haven't been able to date it.  Anyway, here's a link to what they're apparently currently considering the oldest cave art that's not random squiggles etc (or however they define it) found across the world, estimated at 44,000 years and in Indonesia:

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2019/dec/11/earliest-known-cave-art-by-modern-humans-found-in-indonesia

This is in response to previous posts here.  But I better put a happy because in too:  So right now I'm happy because it's nice and cool now after a hot day, and I am enjoying it while I can because our forecast maxima are 39 degrees Celsius for the next three days running.  The first ridiculous summer heatwave has come ridiculously early this year, and it makes one contemplate becoming nocturnal for the rest of summer...

Well, the ATP Cup is on, and is just as much fun as the Davis Cup - team event tennis.  This morning there was a very happy moment for many in Australia as John Millman stepped in as a last-minute replacement for Nick Kyrgios, who was nursing a back strain, to play Canadian young gun Felix Auger-Aliassime.  Millman is an incredible team player who seems to grow wings far bigger than on display in "normal" individual tournaments, when he's playing for his team, and supported by his team.  It's always a joy to watch him play for Australia.  And after getting behind in the first set, he clawed his way back and then defeated the much higher-ranked player in straight sets.  Well done, John Millman! :cool


They wound up defeating Canada 3:0, after defeating Germany 3:0 on their last outing (sorry @Ulrich - our Alex had never beaten your Alex before in four previous attempts, and had been behind when I remarked on this the other night, but somehow managed to hang in there and score his very first defeat of the very talented Alex Zverev... the best tennis match I've ever seen in my life was between Alex Zverev and Nick Kyrgios in Australia last year - the two were airborne much of the time and performing all sorts of trick shots and just red-hot, but best of all was their sportsmanship and how they kept congratulating each other when the other would score a great shot! :heart-eyes It's great when sport isn't more important than everything else, in professional sportspeople... this generation is far better rounded than some of the previous ones, whose sportsmanship was generally much more superficial...)

Happy because living in such a scenic part of the world.  Got some photos from our recent walk on the Bald Head Track - 16km return walk from Isthmus Hill to the end of the Torndirrup Peninsula and back.  I've done this walk many times over the past 26 years and still oooh and aaah every time.

This is the view of the peninsula as you come up and over Isthmus Hill:

You walk right to Bald Head at the end of it.

King George Sound is to the left and the Southern Ocean to the right.

This is halfway along on the return walk:

Last night, I was at home, smoking a cigarette.
And I heard someone howling like a wolf.
It sounded like a call... and at once, it sounded sad... or did it sound happy?
I didn't know what to make of it.
I was in a particularly brooding mood yesterday, and hearing that howl had a strange soothing effect on me.

One day I'll learn wolf language. For now, I can only struggle with cat language.
Meow. Oh, Long Johnson. Oh, Don Piano, why I eyes ya? All the life long day...

Love on ya.

Do you have cats, @piggymirror?  :cool

We have a "special needs wolf" (=dog) at our place, and I speak a little in that language.  :-D

This is Jess - an Australian Kelpie (with a Border Collie paint job because that's in the ancestral mix).


Brett said that next time we get a rescue dog, he wants me to pick a sane one.  I told him this is sort of pointless, because to have a sane dog, you need to have sane owners.  :angel

Happy today because that dog is currently curled up on her sofa (the cream and green thing in the back corner) sighing with contentment after a long early morning outing, a swim and a bellyful of the milk that was left in the old bottle (Monday is milk delivery day and I get new bottles).   :)

Actually, there are articles and videos about how animals can have a positive effect on certain... let's say "damaged" people.
Not one particular kind of damaged people, although I'm not sure this works for every kind of damage.
Not long ago I saw an article about a prison using cats to "tame" the behaviour of certain inmates.

Yes, that's very important, @piggymirror.  :)  Companion animals have been shown to be therapeutic for general mental/emotional health, as well as for some specific conditions.  For example, children with Aspergers often benefit from having a dog, and horse therapy is a recognised tool for treating war veterans with PTSD.  :cool

I think donkey therapy is probably worth its weight in gold.

My husband is from the Anglosphere and grew up with cats, and I'm sure it was they who taught him to be cuddly, because it certainly wasn't in his cultural or family background.  :lol:

And I'm happy today (as I am every day) to have these guys at our place:

Happy today because I got Don Quixote's feet trimmed this morning.  (He's the chocolate brown one on the left in the last post.)  It's always a helluva lot of work and he has a tendency to pull his feet away at the wrong moment (oooh me back), which doesn't make things any easier, but he was pretty good today.

Also I have the impression sometimes that he wants to come in and sit on the sofa.

(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47977414206_a6859c7f07_c.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/2g6AMJE)

Hot and humid as well, so I'm having a cup of chicken broth with lots of salt in it and I should be OK to go again after that.  The humidity did have a side effect:  We had a wonderful, spectacular, loud, ground-shaking electrical storm night before last which dumped more than 15mm of rain on us - 100% appreciated as we are in drought.  There were puddles in the paddocks!  :)  This will give the perennial grasses a little kick, which in turn will make the animals happy. :cool  And the light show was great too! :heart-eyes

PS: I've measured his ears, of course.  They are 28cm long.  That used to make him the longest-eared animal on the place, but Benjamin beats that measurement by several cm. :angel

And I frowned for a second

I think I'm young and I'm feeling great, I say
And it's all filling in but it never ends, I say
And It's so warm, it's like the warmth of a breast
And I frowned for a second

You always make me feel
Like I am living at the center of it all
Like I am living at the center of it all
It's just the way you cried, I say



LET'S NOT GO TO BED JUST YET :winking_tongue

And I do feel if you do
And I do want it if you do
And I will say it if you will say it next

Congratulations on discovering your inner handyperson!  :cool

I'm happy because Brett's on holidays for the next two and a half weeks.  Not only do I get to have him around in the daytime for four more days a week, but the poor man basically had no holidays last year.  In the middle of the year, we both caught a flu so badly that we were actually bedridden for two weeks (that was unprecedented, we could suddenly see how people die of this stuff) and that was half of Brett's annual leave gone, and it took another month or so before we were properly recovered.  Then he had another two weeks off around November, and on that occasion he helped me get the place ready to do Airbnb.  So he was totally burnt out and in need of a break, and I'm glad he finally has one.  I'm going to spoil him rotten.  I started by buying some chilli chocolate and hiding it in the cupboard, and I just told him about it! :)

We climbed up through that crack in the cliff face on the right.  It's a wonderful mountain. :)

Happy today because in the midst of all this madness, you can still go for hikes or walking your dog without increasing anyone's infection risk.

Happy today because we got up really early in the morning to do a 2-hour coastal walk.  The light was lovely that time of day, and it was before the heat set in (we have another heatwave).  We ended up doing the walk in under 90 minutes, and while the steep hills on this hike are hard work, I am really happy that it no longer hurts - no more breathlessness and muscle lock-up and palpitations on the uphills.  So, I'm finally properly fit again.  I even had a skip in my step because I was so happy to be walking.

You can see the trail on this photo - it starts over the top of the hill in the distance, goes down the dunes, and then up into the granite peak from which the photos were taken.

Maybe you might like to share the little things (and the big things) that can still make you happy in a time like this?

Because of the crap situation so many are in, I've been hesitant to do another post on this thread the last couple of days, but I'd like to thank the people who wished me a happy birthday this week, and to thank the forum staff for the little birthday poem that popped up in my notifications. :cool  Little things like that do make a difference to people, and so I think we shouldn't hesitate to do little things like that for other people, even if we think they couldn't possibly make any significant difference in a time of big trouble for the whole world - because actually, it does, and it's sort of contagious, in a good way.

With all this social distancing etc, I'm remembering that other than to stay clear out of respect to others and myself at this time, so I don't unwittingly infect them or me with a bug, I can still smile at people and greet them and wish them a good day or ask how it's going, when I'm in a shop or walking in a public place.  Also I am practicing Japanese bowing so I can start using it in public.  We live in a quite remote area and I've always made a point of waving to people when meeting another car on our back roads; now I do that with extra gravity, because one thing this pandemic is doing is depriving people of many of their normal positive social interactions, and for a stranger to acknowledge you is a positive interaction that does make people a smidgen more positive about being part of the human race.

I'm sad for the many who are having difficult things heaped on their shoulders at this time.  We've been lucky so far as we live so remotely and my husband works in health, so the worst thing happening to us immediately here is that he's got to do extra shifts, and obviously that he's going to be coming into contact with COVID-19 at work.  My work on the farm and doing freelance writing is unaltered.  I can't go meet my friends; my husband is one of those who actually likes the excuse not to have to socialise with people outside our household so this aspect isn't bothering him.

I'm happy to be in a good, supportive marriage and that social distancing doesn't affect that.  I'm happy to be living remote and not in a city, at this time or any other time, but it does make things easier at a time like this.  I'm happy to be surrounded by nature and to be able to go hiking on remote tracks in our region. Yesterday, we did a 3-hour hard hike with lots of uphill/downhill as part of celebrating my birthday - I got to pick the trail, and chose Mt Hallowell, a granite monadnock on the edge of the Southern Ocean, covered in Karri forest with challenging walking, amazing geology and sea views.  And a cave too!

I'm also happy that 49 doesn't feel nearly as bad as I imagined it would when I was a mere 20-something.  In fact, it doesn't feel bad at all.  I'm amazed at how good it feels.  To those under 40, or under 30, I'd like to say that if I could go talk to my younger self about getting older, I'd tell her not to be so concerned about it, but to keep on exercising and eating well and getting enough sleep and stay mentally active and humanly connected.  Like a lady who lived to be over 100 said to me 20 years ago, "Use it or lose it - body or mind."

And in your 40s you lose visual acuity anyway, so I've not been noticing my wrinkles so much lately. Things are a bit blurrier than they used to be.  Also I'm a little creakier. :lol:  But it's still amazing to be alive.

Best wishes to everyone in this difficult time.

... this cold, grey day is an 1 hour shorter due to daylight saving time, i.e. putting the clocks forward last night (however no one woke me in time, thus I missed to put my clock forward at 2am). ;)

ROFL.  We just had to evict a frog from our bedroom!  :lol:

They can get in through the bottom of the magnetic insect curtain in the French door.  That's happened in a guest room before, but it's the first time it's happened in our bedroom because I only installed the insect curtain there recently.  So I've been leaving the French door open a lot.

And we have unexpected rain.  It wasn't forecast at all - and we've had a solid 10mm already and it's still coming down.  This is so excellent, after a late heatwave that had nearly killed the annual seedlings in the pasture that had germinated after three weeks of steady moisture.  They were looking so sad this morning, but this is going to save them all, and get them established.

Also, it's nearly bedtime and I love lying in bed listening to the rain come down!   :cool

Happy because all three horses and five donkeys are now de-wormed - over the course of three days, as they are all free-range and none of them are wearing halters and they quickly get suspicious watching the reactions of others.  If you want to do them all on the same day, you kind of have to hide them from each other, but even then they get suspicious.  :-D  This time it was tapeworm treatment as well, and nobody likes the taste of that when it's in the mix.  Down the hatch! Sometimes with front feet waving around, while I strategically stand to one side, usually having to hold on to a top lip temporarily while singing little lullabies, always with "how-could-you-I-thought-you-were-my-friend" expressions on their faces.  Neither equines nor monkey enjoy this process, but the parasitic invertebrates enjoy it least of all, I'm sure...

That's what happened tonight... I thought "what's this strange noise?", turned out it was something I hadn't heard for way too long: rain! (Not nearly enough, but more is going to come this week, which I'm happy about, it was too dry.)

Yay for rain!  It's dry here too.  The pasture is only just hanging on, and I'm having to irrigate the fruit trees and vegetables again so they don't complain.  We need more rain too.  Maybe this song will help:  ;)


Love love love the drums on this track!  :)

Super day today - relaxing at home in the morning, then out to Denmark after lunch to do a nice 10km walk through the sand dunes to Lights Beach (again), lots of uphill-downhill and we're now fit enough to throw ourselves up the slopes without having to stop at all, and that's much better than this time last year!  :)  Did the walk in about 1h 45 minutes.  Brett claims that the iced coffee after lunch had made me hyperactive because of the amount of coffee powder I put in it... :angel

Ridiculously, going uphill made me happy today - just feeling the muscles work and the sun and breeze all around, and not running out of air.  We also did an alternative route to take in another beach on the way, that we'd not been to.  The surf was pounding like mad.  There was a coast risk area sign and someone had written on it, "Expect nudity!"  ROFL :lol:

It's been a wet day (and it has rained on and off since Tuesday), so I'm quite happy that it's not too dry any more (for a while at least).

I'm happy because I get to live vicariously through a friend, who can go out and drink wine and I can shut my eyes and pretend I'm there, keeping the lush in me alive. Go out and see life and then come home and tell me all about it.

I'm happy right now because it's raining!  And I mean, really really raining!  We've had drought here for two years now, getting just over half the normal average annual rainfall for 2018 and 2019.  We had an early break of season (March, not April), but a very marginal one, and the new seedlings in the pasture were barely hanging on.

Also all of our house water is rainwater, collected from the shed and house roofs.  You can see it, and the very short, very marginal state of the runner grass in the utility areas where we feed the animals their mineral supplemented bucket feeds.  The tank is still half full, which at this time of year is super (the garden areas run off a bore, and we have waterless compost toilets that save over 30,000L of drinking water a year and feed nicely back into our production cycle - you should see the apples and pumpkins)...

And that's very heavy rain coming down on the roof, from thunderstorms that started before with massive light shows; just ahead of the cold front crossing, which is expected to bring severe weather and damaging wind gusts up to 125km/h.  I went around this afternoon putting anything loose outdoors into the house and shed so things don't get blown away; my greenhouse plants are indoors tonight, the horses are in rugs, the donkeys are intelligent enough to use the shelter shed, the cattle are sheltering in the bushland, and the dog is on her sofa...

The big deluge looks like this from the satellite (if it attaches...)... that cloud band over Australia's Southwest - we're on the underside, right under the "J" of cloud at the moment...

Triple happy today:

1) A good friend is staying with us for 5 days - the first stayover we've had since the pandemic.  Restrictions were eased on Monday.  My friend was supposed to be going to NZ and had booked the annual leave way ahead and then the pandemic happened.  But she's come down to hike with us instead and we've had a great day doing three coastal walks in splendid autumn weather.  We'll be walking more on the weekend, and spend tomorrow doing things in the garden and I'll be trimming a set of horse hooves.

2) I like being Mrs Growly Bear (married to a very cute Growly Bear)

3) Today I went to see my GP to get the results for the bone density scan I had last week - my first, a sort of midlife requirement so they can get a reference value for your "downhill run" into old age.  I'm 49 and theoretically at risk of osteoporosis because I had premature ovarian failure (runs in the family) at around 40.  Having said that, if you've got POF you can go on pretty good HRT these days and I feel in all respects like I felt in my 30s (except I have to put in two extra cardio sessions a week to maintain my fitness at the same level these days, but it can still be done).

...anyway, so I got into my GP's office and she said, "Sue!  This is amazing!  You actually have better bone density than the average 18-25-year old!"  And I said, "Well, that's not necessarily saying that much because most 18-25-year-olds these days are couch potatoes!"  (Australia has the "honour" of having the most overweight population on the planet these days, having won this "honour" off the USA a couple of years ago - and has a very inactive population physically).  And she went, "No, this is really good!" - and showed me a normal distribution curve like this:

(https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse2.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.71vuXaS9lDeuP1GRPcY4jwHaFO%26pid%3DApi&f=1)

Three reference values were taken:  Lumbar spine, hip, femoral head.  The first two were sitting on the right-hand side of the green area of the curve, the lumbar spine on the border (1.0 standard deviations across) and the hip close to it (0.8 standard deviations across), so they're better than 74% and ~70% of 18-25-year-olds respectively - at twice the age of these young whippersnappers.  The bone density in the femoral head was sitting just above average for 18-25-year-olds, at 0.1 standard deviation across - so I was saying, "Well, I'll have to work on that one, won't I!" - and load it a bit more, and my GP was laughing at me and saying that osteoporosis is in the red zone on the left side of the curve, and osteopenia (thin bones) in the yellow zone, several standard deviations across from where I was currently sitting, and I should just keep doing what I'm doing and wouldn't need another scan for at least ten years.  She said, "Well, you're a great example of what regular exercise, decent nutrition and a positive and proactive approach can do for your health!"  ...and it's kind of nice when your GP says that (and they're always saying it...)  :cool

Very nice day.

Today is a holiday here ("Himmelfahrt" = "ascension"), but it felt like Sunday. How happy I was this afternoon when I realised that tomorrow is not Monday, it's Friday!! :happy

Also I was out hikin' in the woods, which makes me happy too.  :cool

Today I went to work for the first time since we entered lockdown.
On a Friday, yay!! That feels so much like a boss that you can call me Hugo.
I felt odd, a bit disorientated, but overall, it was a quiet day.
Except for a minor detail that's best not mentioned here, and which has infuriated me to no end.
But that minor detail, on the other hand, is... I guess it can be called "part of being back to the new normal".
I like to think it is. But why oh why certain things must always go hand in hand? Sigh...  :disappointed:
And I've been glad to see again some work faces, and also some non-work faces pending the coffee break.

On an even happier note, the cats are alright.  :beaming-face  They looked a bit sleepy.

I'm glad the cats are all right, @piggymirror, and hope that the exasperating thing will become less exasperating!

We're flat out daytimes and then doing movies nighttimes, but here's a few "postcards" our friend took of our main hike on Thursday - we had unbelievably resplendent weather which brought out all the colours of the landscape...
