Trivial satisfaction, the Mr.Middleton catalogue is now printed on paper and no longer reeks of vile chemicals. Used to have to wash my hands after touching the previoys catalougues, they'd feel coated.

Also TH when I come across an Annie Liebovitz photo. She was the mistress of her art.

So hard to capture this but bear with me...

Was stuck in a tailback on my way home the other day (two way traffic) just inching along.
Up ahead at a shopping centre exit on the left, there was a woman trying to turn right to join the traffic coming against me.
A few cars in front there was a white van to the woman's right and as a gap appeared in the traffice the woman saw an opportunity to edge out onto the road and looked left to try to move to the other lane, the white van accelerated almost running into the right side of the woman's car.
He was completely out of line but from what I could tell (right arm out the window angrily gesturing) lost the plot.

Well what happened next just made so happy, as the woman turned right onto the opposite lane, she stopped by the side of the van, lowered her window and blew him a kiss and took off with a huge smile.

I would have paid good money to have seen his reaction. I am going to use that!

Golden Time and I'm smiling as I look at all the kiddies munching happily and listening to Beat Bugs "All You Need Is Love" (if you have smallies you'll probably know it ... if not, don't google it or you risk earworm for the day). One of my little Junior Infants arrived in this morning with a home-made Valentine's card for teacher and packets of love heart sweets for all the class. I'm eating a "Love Bug" one atm ... very appropriate as this little Bumbóg still has a cold. I'm also THH (trivially teacher happy) that he spelt my name correctly! This little Romeo is a right little divil at the best of times but there's a classroom filled with love (& sugar) atm so I'm giving him a free pass on divilment for the rest of the day!

I turned my phone camera on to take a photo of something but it was switched to selfie mode by mistake.
My surprised face in the screen.
First time in 2 years I looked like myself, and healthy. Ive had a few good weeks now and then when I gained weight but it always dropped off again. Was also suffering from dull stressed skin and dull eyes. Was causing loss of confidence. Very very pleased today. Feels like I've crested a hill Ive been schlepping up and sliding down on my face for 2 years.

Looking at my tomato seedlings and almost tasting the sun ripened fruits they will produce later in the year.

Ordered a basically a bucket blackberry bush last year from them. Its fantastic and still going strong. The amount of berries it produces is loco, but it does make a nice wine.

There is a new piece equipment in the park gym, it's hard for me now but something to aim for.

Walking back from the gym, I found £10, sadly for them none of the businesses close by had staff on their desks.
