What made me happy today

Hi all


In another community I'm a member of, we have a thread where everybody just says what's made them happy this day. Thought it would be nice for here too! πŸ˜€

And we're not restricted to posting only once!





To start: I was woken up by my cat purring in my ear. The sun is out, and I had a lovely walk to work in beautiful Bath from where I parked.
I'm also happy today because my dad is feeling loads better after coming out of hospital. Tonight I'm seeing friends for tea and food.

Over to you πŸ‘

What’s the other community about then, Marc? Is it fuel related and connected to this and your job? 🀷

Hey @Jon1 is @Jon2 going to be chatting here too? Like a sort of 'good cop' and 'bad cop' thing? πŸ€”

Hey @Bev it's a photography community. For Fuji camera users. Not work but a big passion! I get to discuss the merits of the x100F vs the X-T2, and so on. Total camera nerdiness πŸ€“
I bet that sounds really thrilling huh?

Hmmm now thats an idea. I suppose we could have very public arguments with each other giving differant views. 1 could be for brexit with 2 being a remainer for example (brexit debates are usually lively) just to see who else joins in.
Man utd/city. Corbyn/may the list is endless.....

But then again proberly better not as i dont want to fall out with myself.haha.

No, it’s good to learn lots about other people and their interests, thanks Marc πŸ‘. I’m just getting to grips with some all singing, all dancing camera πŸ“Έfor work, for ID passes, jeeeez it’s complicatedπŸ™€πŸ‘ŽπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚! (Love that you love pets too, and your cat 🐱sleeps with you! Cute!)

..........a BABY blackbird feeding my bird food into its siblings beak, after copying its mum πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•. A little bit more advanced than its sibling, so able to feed itself, and now able to feed its brother or sister too! Adorable as both still fluffy little babies not long out of the nest! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ£πŸ£

.......calling a female member of staff β€œSir” πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€as I was typing! Only saw the outline as she waited at the desk to book her car into the car park! I was beyond mortified when I looked up! Ground swallow me up! πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€However she saw the funny side and forgave me eeeeeeek!

It made me sort of happy (that I wasn’t sacked πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and that she had a sense of humour!) but was mortifying at the time!!!!!!!!!!!!

A work colleague took her nephew to Wembley to see that match, Jon, but avid Villa fans, so they're very very disappointed today πŸ‘Ž

Reading in the Express πŸ—žοΈ of the Big Six energy price hikes due in June, and this extract.....

The latest figures were collated by renewable energy firm Pure Planet. Co-founder Steven Day said: β€œWe’re calling it price hike fortnight - it will cost consumers nearly Β£400million.

β€œThey shouldn’t be distracted by the warm sun outside but make the quick switch to avoid big bills all year. Modern, renewable, app-based energy companies like Pure Planet are as much as Β£400 cheaper than the Big Six for high users.”

Walking into work, reliving last nights Car Share πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ‘.

I larfed all the way there! Think the drivers passing me were thinking β€œMad woman!” but hopefully I made them chuckle πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Peter Kay is a legend! πŸ™Œ

Discovering the latest Innocent drink, which is a dairy free alternative to milk πŸ‘πŸ₯›πŸ₯€πŸ‘.

Made purely with just Hazelnuts🌰, Spring water πŸ’¦, rice (!), plus teeny bit of salt. Acquired taste after their juices BUT grown on me fast and really loving it now πŸ™€πŸ‘πŸ‘.

Also a tiny start to going vegan, as 100% vegan. Can’t be bad πŸ‘

Seen this study doing the rounds today? The impact of eating meat/dairy on the environment.
Here's a Daily Mail story about it, and a Guardian version too.

Have you seen the film Cowspiracy? Very interesting!

Retrieving my credit card from my jeans πŸ‘–pocket after putting it thru a hot wash in the washing machine in error πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ‘Ž. It came out unscathed, phew, but if it doesn’t work when I next use, eek, I’ll blame Visa πŸ‘πŸ˜‚πŸ€ͺ.

Sooo happy that it’s still in one piece! At least it’s clean πŸ‘πŸ˜†
