An unexpected royalties cheque in the post. Something from years back was added to the reading list for a college course in the UK, apparently.
I love pleasant surprises in the post.

Watching the big cat who has just come in from the rain assiduously washing, or rather drying himself off... Now his sister has joined in....so there is now a great furry heap of cats ,,

a colleague sent me an image file today called DoubleEntryShots.jpg
it's totally related to work, but I'm surprised that alarms haven't gone off in IT and my machine confiscated.

The smile a little note of thanks gives.

Mrs S sometimes knits little hats for premature babies, for use in Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Dublin and Belfast. A 'wee note' came today with a photo of a baby wearing one of her hats. Nice thought and I'll benefit from the smile it brought.

We should all make an effort to thank people. It so often is an intention that goes unfulfilled.

There's this lovely new girl at work who compliments me every day, whether it's my hair or a skirt I'm wearing or my eyelashes or whatever. Today she told me my skin was fabulous and we girly-chatted about our favourite skincare products for about an hour.

I was glowing leaving the office and it made me realise how much of a lovely, selfless and totally effortless thing it is to be that person that pays compliments to the people around them every chance they get. It's like injecting a little ray of sunshine into someone's day. I'm going to try to do that more

Happy and relieved that when I steeled myself to call a garage re the car , the man was kindness itself and so helpful.

Had got very complicated here on the island so am happy indeed.

Happy i can thus rest today as I seem to be "bugged"... nasty! But snug now. Listening to occasional hail showers ..

It just gets better...I'm on roll.
Did Tax returns online Monday night just out of habit, as we had no addition medical or such to claim for 2017.
This morning I'm informed that a refund of €2004 is on its way to the bank account.


And found €40 in the pocket of a coat I put on this morning.

Drinks are on me.
