Title: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on June 26, 2012, 06:03:27 am
I have been inspired to start this thread by the wonderfully positive and inspirational people on this forum. I'd love for everyone to join in if they want to :)

The idea is simple: post something (or everything!) that happened in your day that made you smile :)

It can be silly, it can be weird, it can be as simple as hearing a bird sing outside your window. Lets just share some happiness :)

Okay...I'll play this game and start with something really sappy.  The first thing that made me smile this morning was the sound of my son's voice on the phone at 5am.  He sounds happy and that made me happy.  The second thing that made me smile was my husband rolling over and cuddling me....we have been together for nearly twenty years and I still can't imagine ever wanting to wake up anywhere but next to him.....told you it was sappy!

That rates up there pretty highly too...particularly if you don't have to make it.....I scored well last night and this morning....DH brought me a chai last night in bed and this morning a latte, and then the feral fairy brought me a choc chip chai tea.....gotta love school holidays and late starts.

Mine is kinda sappy too.

Went to make a cup of tea first thing this morning (DH at work), and I found a little note in my cup, just saying "I love you" with a heart and kisses.  He knew it would be the first thing I would do.

Later he rang to see how I was and I said I'm feeling really tired and cbb today, he asked if I'd eaten and I said no just the tea but for some reason I really felt like a cornish pasty  ??? Can't explain that, been ages since I've had one.  Anyway we said our goodbyes and about 20 mins later he came in carrying one.  :o  He'd been and bought one in his lunch break and brought it home for me.  :-*

I shouldn't be surprised as he does lovely things for me all the time and I spoil him too.  We've been together 33 years.  :D

The first that made me smile was when DS woke up saying "Good morning mummy, I hope you had a good night sleep". He is so caring and then he made me a cup of coffee.
Got to work and when DH saw me pulling up, he made me a cup of coffee.
This afternoon DS teacher informs me that she would like to have a meeting with me start of next term. She has developed a special program for DS.
Looking forward to what tonight brings.

Post by: CreamPuff63 on June 26, 2012, 08:27:06 am
what thoughtful DH's you have!

My first smile was looking at all the dirty dishes from last nights meal that were kindly left for me.
My next smile was for my cat, she follows me around watching everything I do, and loves to sit above the kitchen sink and watch while I cook and wash dishes.
Following this, I had to laugh at this joke:

I took the wife to a disco at the weekend. There was a guy on the dance floor giving it everything he had; break dancing, moon walking, back flips, the works.


My wife turned to me and said, "See that guy? 25 years ago he proposed to me and I turned him down."

I said, "Looks like he's still f*****g celebrating!"

 

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on June 26, 2012, 08:34:43 am
Wow, all these DH's sound wonderful everyone! Its lovely to know that so many of you having loving, caring relationships :D

DG your son sounds adorable :)

CP.... what can I say except ROFL ;D ;D ;D

I'm a very spoiled wife as DH always puts my breakfast in front of me every morning. Gotta love him. We've been married nearly 40 years and together 44.

The first thing to make me smile this morning wass our weiro. After I got up he demanded loudly that I go and say hello to him. He then says'hello darling' to me and gives me lots of kisses.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: stacelee on June 26, 2012, 10:15:10 am
You're not spoiled....you're appreciated.....you obviously have a fantastic relationship.  I hope my husband and I are still appreciating each other in another 24 years (although if he keeps deciding at 5.45 that we MUST clean our offices before we go home, I may have to scone him with the mop!)

Mine is the cheeky smiles and sounds my baby daughter gives me. She's so happy most of the day.

I will have to take more notice of when something makes me smile or laugh - I'm feeling rather inadequate here, no coffee or breakfast waiting for me.  It's probably when I come and have breakfast with the forum that I have my first smile unless there is a load of spam waiting to be deleted  ;D   It's lovely to hear your stories and it's so nice of you to share the romantic things your DH's do for you.

LOL Judy, I'm in the same boat as you with no coffee or breakfast waiting for me, but then again I don't have a DH :-)) The first thing that made me smile this morning was something on the forum, but I can't remember what, so I will have to pay more attention from now on ;)

Keep the happiness coming ladies, its so nice to hear all your lovely stories :-*

Its funny how the simple things are usually the most wonderful, and the things we don't often acknowledge.

Denise, thank you so much :) Your compliment definitely made me smile! :D
Your foster twins sound gorgeous, you must be so proud of them. I think all foster parents are caring and wonderful people. I would love to be one when I'm older, it sounds like such a rewarding thing to do :D

Yes extremely rewarding and exhausting. These are our first, we have their 21/2 year old brother also. Just need to teach them all to sleep all night and an occational morning past 6am would be nice.  Lots of happy times too.

No latte for me this morning...with the baby cow away, I forgot to buy milk, but I woke to the sound of drizzle on the roof and that was happy for me when I thought of my capsicum seedlings that I just planted.....:)....and then my husbands dog got on the bed for a cuddle, WET, there is going to be a shorn Pomeranian/shiatsu/silky terrier if he keeps it up....I swear he is part sponge (but adorable)

Post by: astarra on June 26, 2012, 11:12:57 pm
First thing that made me smile today was the same as every morning - DH's nice warm cuddle, kisses and "I love you, have a good day"  :-*   Then 1 of my lil bros (from NZ) rang, which made me smile again. Then Miss 3 woke up, climbed up for a hug and said "I had a good sleep mum, did you?" Then miss 5 asking how the new baby was going   :-)) - then the girls thanking me for their breakfast.... oh and this view when I opened my curtains this morning:

Now THAT is definitely worth smiling about DG :D :D :D

I'm smiling as I sit here because I can see the willy wag tails playing in the front yard. Its the first time I've seen them this morning so I think they must just have woken up. And had coffee by the looks of them ;D

Checking my emails this morning and seeing how many of my work collegues have donated to my Dry July challenge. I sent out a site wide email which includes a lot of people I've never met and I raised close to $300 for such a great cause. I haven't started the challenge but it's making me happy already.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Nikkit on June 27, 2012, 03:32:36 am
Just a few of my happy's for today...
Hubby packing a banana in his lunchbox. You have no idea how happy that made me! And amazed! (goodness, I must check to see if he is ok...he never eats fruit!)
Miss 15 saying to me this morning "have I told you today that I love you?" with a big hug.
Miss 10 (nearly 11 Mum!) all snuggly and warm pulling me into her bed for a cuddle.
My old horse who hates love, cuddles or extra pats actually standing still for the extra hug I try and give him every morning.
My young horse trying to get an extra pat and cuddle (he loves love!) and rubbing his dirty smelly poo encrusted head on me. (His mummy didn't teach him not to sleep in his poo pile when he was a baby - he is gross!)

There'll be more - it is only 10.30am!

Lol DG, get right into that happy dancing. It'll burn off some of those evil calories ;)

Nikkit, I can't wait to hear what else you can post. Everything on your list made me smile too (until that last little bit about your young horse and his pooey head...) :-)) ;D

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Nikkit on June 27, 2012, 08:55:40 am
I've got a couple more...
Hubby came home early (rained off work) se we cut wood. (I know - terribly exciting - but it makes me happy when there's a  pile ready to come inside for the fire!)
Went for a walk over the back in the empty block and filled in rabbit holes.
Miss 10 came home telling me she got up and spoke at the assembly today - so very proud of her. (She had a melt down on Monday and couldn't do it) And 15-20 "random kids" (her words) came up to her after the assembly and said she did a really good job.

Oh - hubby ate banana - and yes he is fine!
Young horse (he's 8) still wanted more love this arvo when I went out into the paddock - no poo encrusted head this time.
Old horse (he's 22) had had enough love this morning and wouldn't come near me for quids!

I'm happy tonight as I got the timing just right and managed to catch the early train home from work, meaning I'll get home about 15 minutes earlier than usual.

Not much I know, but I leave home in the morning just before 7am & usually don't get home until 6.20pm, so I love those 15 minutes!

Amy,  love this .  Sat in bed this morning and smiled all the way through. 

Went out side our cabin and watched a mummy kangaroo feeding and then a joey poke his head out of her pouch.

Judy,  you may not get a cuppa in bed,  but I have seen Geoff smile while he has been watching you.  This is worth 100 cups of tea.

Oh, such a lovely thread, thanks Amy :) 

I have been smiling all the way through reading this, and laughing at dede's "cat in the cupboard".

I guess I started smiling this morning remembering a great demo I had last night where I sold my first TMX for June! It's been a rather dry month....

Then, after that, I was happy when I finished cleaning my workshop which has had a ceiling replaced and there was filth and grime over everything.

Generally, I'm a very happy person. Really grateful for my DH, how hard he works and what we've achieved over the years. I married a shearer and am now a farmer's wife!

I was introduced to a woman last night and the first thing she said to me was, "are you _____'s daughter?"
I said yes.
She said "I went to school with her."
A bloke who was standing with us said "does Amy look a bit like her then?"
The woman said "yeah, just a little bit...." (with a sarcastic smile on her face)

This sort of thing happens to me all the time and it still makes me smile every time. People who don't even know me figure out who I am because I look so much like my mum. Our doctor even used to joke that we look like twins :-))

Chookie, MJ and DJ, thanks so much for joining in :-*

Thats great news Tasty :) And well done on reducing your gas usage! :D

Thanks for sharing your happy things DJ. The sunshine definitely makes me happy too! ;)

My number one happy thing yesterday was going to my first thermomix demonstration. We've had a thermomix for 10 years now (mum worked it out the other day) and I'd never been to one until last night. It was AWESOME ;D ;D ;D

Watching the cat stalk the dog around the garden. He's blind so he had no idea where she was. She was runniing and jumping and then just at the last second she would think better of jumping on him. So funny to watch her antics from the window.

The thought of going on a nudist holiday like a family did on "Sunrise" today...  (its not for me, but if you think about it for a couple of minutes it will certainly brings a smile to your face  :D)

Really Robyn? Do you ever use it? We sold our TM21. We like the TM31 much better :)

Today at the gym one of the trainers decided to give us a music quiz by asking us to name the artists of the songs that came on the radio. We answered about 5 before the trainer realised that the radio station was playing Beatle's number 1 hits and we all knew ;D ;D So he just started singing after that :-))

Miss 5 just made me smile - she brought me a home-made card with "I'm loving you" written on the front with lots of hearts, inside it said "Lots of love to you mum."  :)

They are the notes you treasure forever.
When my DD was about 6yrs old (now 25) she wrote a note saying "I love you more then eny thick"
I have it in my sewing box.

You play the sax Amy? You're a young lady with many talents.

May I ask how your mum is doing now she has finished treatment?

Thanks Michele :D I started off playing the clarinet, then I played alto saxophone and took up baritone saxophone at the same time. Then I was told I was too talented to be playing saxophone (because its one of the easiest instruments to learn) so I learned to play the trumpet, and then played cornet as well so I could play in the brass band in our town. In amongst all this I also taught myself some basic piano. But now I am back to saxophone because a lady asked me to play in her band and she wants either saxophone or trumpet ;D ;D ;D And saxophone is very cool, even if it is easy to learn :-))

Of course you can ask about my mum :) She is going pretty well, she's very excited that her hair is starting to grow back ;) She still gets tired very easily, and she's having some trouble with her teeth and nails which we think is from the chemo, but we're through the worst of it and things are definitely looking up :D
Thank you for asking :-*

Astarra, you must be so proud of your girls. They sound very loving and caring :-*
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

Very nice instrument Amy.

Good to hear your mum's making progress. Yes, chemo will play havoc with teeth and nails.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on June 30, 2012, 09:52:10 am
Thanks Michele, he's very shiny and sparkly ;D

Do you have any suggestions for what my mum could do about her nails? ???
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: mcmich on June 30, 2012, 10:59:23 am
Prior to some chemotherapy being administered, finger tips are immersed in ice to reduce the nails falling out.
Unfortunately if the damage is done your mum will have to wait until they grow out.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on June 30, 2012, 11:29:55 am
Oh... what a shame nobody told us that before :(
Thanks anyway Michele :)

Today me and my mum went for a walk around a bush track and we found a little bench to sit down on for a while. While we were sitting there, a little bandicoot came out of her burrow and started hopping around. We sat on the bench for about 15 minutes watching the little bandicoot, who we named Barbara :D It was fun trying to guess where she would pop out of next, because there were lots of little hidey holes she kept disappearing into. She was a very cute bandicoot :D
So that made me happy today :)

I laughed yesterday when my cousin said she was using super glue and managed to almost glue her hand to some shoes, then she dripped 2 drops of the glue on her jeans which soaked through and glued the jeans to her legs :D
I hate super glue as I always manage to get some on my fingers.

Just yesterday, i bought DS4 a small pack of popcorn and DS1 saw his brother with the bag of popcorn, was walking (tottering) towards him to ask for some goodies.

So both boys just sat on the rug eating pocorn together for 15 mins. DS4 fed one popcorn at a time to DS1. So heart warming seeing them sitting together, side by side, and played nice. An unusual change from fighting with each other over toys all the time....  😁

Chookie, what a lovely thing to come home to :D

Stacelee, I hope your brat boy is just as grateful to be home ;)

Mandi, I'm terrified of superglue for that very reason :-[

frazzled_mom, how beautiful to see your boys like that :D Did you get a photo?

Well... I had to smile yesterday because I discovered that a local college is FINALLY offering a course that I've been wanting to do for a couple of years now ;D And then I found out that enrolments are tomorrow :o

Kids do make you laugh and smile, and also melt with love, or shine with pride :) they also make you steam with anger and disappointment at times too. But all the cute and lovely things they do soon make you forget the naughty things.

love the impression dede - I gather your DH has a beer belly coming over half mast pants and enjoys being near a fridge with a carton or two and some takeaway? Don't think you could quite capture it in a photo as they have  ;D ;D ;D

This piece of paper fell out of an old cookbook last night. I wrote the date on it, my DD24 was 9 at the time and was whinging about one of her so called friends so I told her to write down what it was she didn't like about her:

Dumb, adult, spoilt, big nose, loves money, loves boys, thinks she's pretty, big nose, bossy, body movements, thinks she's the best, sits around watching TV, thinks she's smart, loves boys and hate all her friends, eats BAD food for her teeth, never plays by the rules, kicks people out, when we play four squares says your out Jess's in.

...remembering brought a smile...


(I wonder if this girl has changed as she's grown older?)

Lol CP, I love looking back on the kids things. My DD spends alot of time with DH at the farm and sees all sorts of things, she quiet often comes home with stories she has wrote at school about what she did on the weekend with her dad and a lovely drawing to go with it. The teachers have commented quiet a few times about her stories with a bit of a giggle as she does not leave out any details :D even how lambs are born, or dead sheep etc.

As for DH he has a bit of a pot but not quiet that bad lol. :D but he does like his beer and KFC :D

Today I called out through my kitchen window for my little man (ds4) to come inside for lunch - about 10 times.  Finally I watched him hop off the gate (which he had been having a great time swinging on) and start to amble his way inside. When he finally neared the door he suddenly veered of course and headed over to the garden.  Crankily I stormed to the door and was ready to let him (and the neighbours) know I wasn't happy.  When I saw him though I changed my mind.  He was picking flowers from a shrub.  Something he never does - he's very much a rough and tumble boy! When he has scruffed a big bunch (roots and all) he came rushing over to give them to me (with a big smooch). It's the little things . . .  :)
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

Maybe she could do it with you next time Tasty! :-)) Sounds like you're doing some good positive role-modelling for her :D

Chelsea, that is just adorable :) I think you should do what CP suggested and press the flowers, and you could even put them in a frame and print the little story and date on some nice paper to put in the frame too. You'll cherish it forever :D

A big bunch of flowers I found outside my front door this morning made me smile!  :) And the sun streaming down did too.  :D

Today while I was hanging the washing I saw steam rising and freaked out then had to have a little chuckle at myself - it was just the hot sun shining on the damp black top which was causing the steam!! Was funny to see - I even managed to get a picture of it: (look near the centre of the pic) :D

I'm glad to see there is still some happiness going around! :D

I'm happy today because I went for my run this morning, had a really nice lunch, got five new cookbooks (which I hope to convert some recipes from ;)), came on the forum and read all the friendly chatter, got some really yummy carrots from the vegie shop, and I'm sooooo excited for the retreat weekend, I think that will keep me happy until its over!

So far: used red wine (Kadarka), from the garden: parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme - from the cupboard: a huge bayleaf and peppercorns.  We put it on a shorter stainless steel drink bottle with a wide neck.  The bottle proved to be a bit short ..but we'll see what happens!  It's in/on the bbq now and the potatoes are now being prepared . . . .

I'm happy happy happy as we have marri timber floors laid this week in our bedroom and office. You have no idea how gooooood it is compared to the bare cement.  ;D ;D ;D (we've been in the house a mere 7 1/2 years!!)
Now I have to go shopping for a new bedroom suite, new doona cover, find a painter to do a paint job in our bedroom and a few new things in the office so it looks finished.  :D
Oh...and I threw out all those clothes that I was going to either "wear one day " or "lose weight one day". Decided today it was just never gonna happen - so Good Sammies here they come!

Amy, I am a 4th generation hoarder (didn't know great great granny - so don't know what she was like - but the rest of us are hopeless hoarders!) ...you just never know when you might be able to use that bit you kept from 1974. Well today I told my dear departed Nana to leave for the day (I'm sure she comes to "visit" me when I'm having a chuck out and whispers in my ear that "no that could be useful one day dear...") and I've had a good clean out. She would be horrified and I can see her shaking her head now!!
 
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on July 07, 2012, 02:08:00 pm
Golly gosh, that is a lot of hoarding :o I'm the complete opposite of you! As soon as something no longer has an immediate use, I toss it. Which has proven to be not so helpful on a number of occasions :-))
I love throwing things out, in fact, I can see a whole bunch of things I could throw out right now ;D

Cleanliness and order make me happy ;)
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Nikkit on July 07, 2012, 02:36:42 pm
Remind me not to invite you to morning tea then Amy! You'd have a field day here... ;D
After my Pop died we had to clean out their house before Nana could move. OMG! She had kept every butter and marg container she had bought from the last 20 years. (amongst a whole load of other things!) We couldn't quite see why at the time, but when you stop and think - she grew up in the depression era and was one of 10 kids, so you used every thing until it could be used no more.
I grew up on a farm and not much got chucked out there. If it did it was to our little tip - so we knew where it was if we ever needed it.
I tend to keep things for a couple of years and if it hasn't been used in that time - then it is time to pass it on. Unless it tugs the heart strings, then I just have to find a spot for it ;D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on July 07, 2012, 03:31:25 pm
Lol okay, no morning tea for Amy at Nikkit's place :-))
I think my grandparents are a bit like that too, there is a use for everything! My nana always has a story for every knick knack and doo-hickey though, so its actually really nice :D

I'm like you Amy and toss things if they ate unused. With a family of 7 I can't afford to keep everything or we would run out of space to move around ;D
A couple of years ago we had or roof space turned into usuable storage with an attic ladder installed. I have been meaning to go up there and do a bit of a sort and chuck as well.

The other day while sorting out my filing cabinet I found a recipe (quiet a rude one about bananas) that my brother gave me many years ago. It made me smile when I read it, more because of the story on how I got it than the recipe it's self.
I went for a interview for a Job in Ballarat and got my brother to help me with my resume and letter of application. And as he lived in Melbourne he posted it along with the rude recipe. But instead of posting it directly to me he accidentally posted it to the place I was applying for a job :o
I did happen to get an interview and the first thing they handed me was the rude recipe and said I think this belongs to you. You can imagine my embarrassment :D
And I didn't get a job there, probably cause I was so embarrassed and nervous. :D
I laugh about it now though.

I have only just found this tread. Sitting here drinking my second coffee reading all 10 pages. This has made me happy.

Last night I went to Lady Gaga with DW, my sister and BiL. Watchng my DW have such a good time made me happy. Then at the end of the concert Lady Gaga grabbed 2 fans from the audience to come on stage and dance with her during the encore. I really liked this. These girls were so happy (happy doesn't really describe it), I can't think of another performer who would do this.

Amy - I rang my Mum and told her I had had a clean out and the first thing she said was "oh...I hope it wasn't anything good or that you can use" I laughed and said "no Nana". What hope have I got?!
Finally finished cleaning up and there are 5 boxes for the Good Sammies. There is a box of shoes, I had no idea I had so many shoes that I did not wear. (what was I thinking when I bought some of them  :o )
I even found my wedding shoes from 1995! They had to go. Hubby shook his head and said "geeze - you only wore that pair once".
Extra happy as the floors still look sensational and I can see more of them in the walk in robe now!

LOL good old mum Nikkit ;D ;D ;D
I'm very impressed that you're getting rid of 5 boxes! :o Well done! :D
Especially the shoes, I know how hard it is to get rid of shoes :-))

I was just overcome by such a sudden and intense feeling of happiness that I felt the urge to tell everyone that I loved them. Unfortunately I was in the shower at the time, so I didn't think that running out and shouting it to the world was such a good idea at that moment :-))
But I'm here, on the forum right now, telling you all how much I love you for being such wonderful human beings :-* :-* :-*

I went with my DS19 son to see "Moonshadow" in Melbourne. I didn't go to the WC whilst there because of the line up, nor when we left. We had quite a walk to the tram stop to catch our tram. After waiting over an hour in the freezing cold (and busting "to go") for our tram we re-read the schedule to find it didn't run on Saturday so we had to catch an alternative route. Nearly 2 hours after the musical finished - wow! was I ecstatic to go to the WC !!! and then snuggle up under the doona  ;D

Not sad at all. I keep opening my freezer and marvelling at the emptiness of it. I look at my wardrobe several times a day and am so pleased.

My wonderful Maria comes tomorrow  to clean my floors. Clean house . Bliss.

McMich Moonshadow was great, and I would recommend seeing it. Amazing how your always fall in love with the characters. Their voices are amazing. The stage changes and set are so spectacular. DS had never seen a musical before and was really enthralled. Said he was going to see more - yay! So lucky in Melbourne to have half price tix available.

Also how funny my 10 month old daughter was finding me in the toilet and chatting to me through the door that was slightly ajar while making cute expressions. I also love all the sweet smiles that she gives me when watching me dry my hair.

So many moments that make you smile each day with a little one  :) :) :) :)

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on July 13, 2012, 12:35:56 pm
This is going to sound like a really strange thing to be happy about :-\

We were told today that grandpa is being kept in hospital. I'm happy about this because I know how unsteady he is, and nana wouldn't be able to help him up if he was at home and had a fall. There are also roadworks happening in their street, and since grandpa has started wandering off sometimes it could be very dangerous for him.
So I'm very happy that they are keeping him in hospital because I know he is safe there :)
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: judydawn on July 13, 2012, 12:51:26 pm
You are right Amy, he is in the right place.  My Dad was put into hospital for his last days on the pretence they needed to work on his medication but I think the doctor could see Mum wasn't coping.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on July 13, 2012, 01:04:32 pm
Thanks Judy :) I feel guilty for feeling happy about it because I know how much grandpa would like to go home, especially because he misses his little dog, but I would worry so much for him and nana if he were to leave the watchful eye of his doctor.
Old age seems so unfair sometimes. I feel for your mum having to go through the same thing. It must be so difficult.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Bonsai on July 13, 2012, 02:47:05 pm
Amy, would the hospital mind if Grandad's dog visited? (sneak him in😉). Don't feel guilty, Grandpa and Nan are both being looked after and your family's love and support will mean so much to them.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: CreamPuff63 on July 13, 2012, 04:04:46 pm
Amy ask the hospital if the dog can visit. It doesn't hurt to ask.
When you are old, it is different to being young. Mother Nature has given some protection to the old (as in forgetfullnes, blindness, etc) and it doesn't hurt anyone other than those who remember to care more). Live in the moment Amy and just cherish the time. Sometimes they will be good memories and others not so good, but that is life. Nothing is guaranteed.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on July 14, 2012, 12:27:41 am
Thanks Bonsai and CP. I just assumed that the hospital would mind us taking a dog in, but I think I will ask just in case there is a chance. Missy is only a silky terrier, so even if they say no we could sneak her into mum's handbag :-)) Would I usually do that? No. For grandpa? Yes :)
CP, I guess this would is what they would call a harsh wake-up-to-reality call?

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: astarra on July 14, 2012, 05:55:26 am
He is definately in the right place Amy,  :)  I actually logged in today to see if you had posted any updates on how he was.  :)

Amy, do ask.

I used to take my huge boofy dog to a nursing home once per week. He was an englsh mastiff/great dane, 65kgs of softness.

The olds used to love our visit.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: jakodai on July 14, 2012, 07:46:50 am
My dog Jake (he's who my username is named after - Jake for short, Jakodai in full...) used to be a therapy dog and was allowed in nursing homes and hospitals. As long as the dog is clean and has heart worm treatment, there is no reason why he wouldn't allowed in. Oh, and well behaved of course. They can't bite and stuff like that... Jake didn't have anything else special. He didn't have a jacket or anything like that.

The olds used to love our visit.

Likewise with Jake - there were a couple of patients in the nursing home that would never talk, but once they were patting Jake they'd start telling me about their dog. It was amazing. There were also patients who didn't think Jake should be in their nursing home and would actually follow me around telling me off. I was visiting the high-dependency area of an old-age home...

Not really, I usually throw a spice mix on it, and grill.
My friend has a fishing boat, so we buy direct from her.

I'm so happy right now as I just found myself singing in the shower....seems a strange thing to be happy about I know, but it has been 3 weeks, before that it was just an automatic thing.  :D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

I like Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocket Man as my shower songs ;D

Dusting cement dust off boots - sounds odd, but I am happy about 2 things.
Means the cement dust has finished and I can start cleaning up properly, and the boots - they came from Canada at the Alberta Boot Company, and it brings back lots of fun memories of our White Christmas in Alberta 6 years ago.

Great Jen. Isn't it a shame more people aren't more open and positive in commenting on nice things they notice about people, rather than feeling the only time to speak up to a stranger is when they want to complain about something. Keep up the good work  :D

When I did the shopping yesterday I saw 2 corellas squawking on the top of a nearby theatre. I love birds and this made me feel very happy and loving nature and life. Soppy isn't it? Birds and nature do that to me.

Well done Jen. Can't wait to see the new hair cut. Any chance of you coming on the retreat now there is a space?

Well, I am very happy today too :) I did a time trial on the treadmill at my personal training session this morning, and when I finished, my personal trainer asked me, "how good are you?"
I said, "I don't know, probably not very good."
He looked genuinely shocked, and said, "I'll tell you how good you are. You're bloody good."
I said, "Are you being serious?"
And he actually laughed, and said "You have no idea how good you are."

 :D :D :D
Nobody has ever said anything like that to me before.

Hi Dede, at first he pulled back and pushed her away, but after 10 seconds he realized who it was, I was walking free.   He was being a real monster at the airport, anyone who saw him would have thought he was a real little s--t.  and he was.  normally he is quiet good.LOL

I'm concerned that I could have my 2 year old nephew for several weeks if my sister has her baby early. I'm nominated as no.1 to take care of him. It will turn my life upside down. But I would do anything for my sister.
She had a scan yesterday and everything not looking so positive. She's 26 weeks. She needs to keep bub there for hopefully several weeks yet. Any sign of early labor and they will send her away to another hospital as they can't cope with babies born before 30 weeks here in Launceston. Last time she went to Adelaide for 5 weeks. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen this time. The doctors have started her on shots of steroids to strengthen the babies lungs just in case :(

Thanks GF, we can only take one week at a time now. At 26 weeks the baby has around a 80% chance of survival, she weighs around 1.1kg which is pretty good considering my nephew was born at 30 weeks weighing 1.5kg. The bigger she is the better too. :)

I'm happy that my 7yo still believes in the tooth fairy, and that I remembered my tooth fairy duties last night!

Post by: dede on July 25, 2012, 04:29:33 am
Thanks guys, we will take one day at a time. We are all hoping for a full term baby but I think the chances are slim but you never know.
I think the thing that is the most stressful for my sister is having to leave her little boy behind if she has to be sent to another hospital. Hobart is the closest hospital that can cope with prem babies before 30 weeks which is a 2 hour drive away. Fingers crossed that she doesn't get sent to Adelaide or Melbourne this time :D

CP I found a good walking track that adds about 6 flights of stairs, would have to go round and round in circles to get a high number of stairs in a day. Don't think I will ever reach 25 stairs in a day. I'm aiming for 10 a day if I can :D

Yep, we aren't young Amy. DH is 53, the youngest of three sons, there is a 5yr gap between him and the next brother up. Which makes his dad only 30 yrs when he had DH. I'm 52yrs old Ames.

I noticed a quote in the West Australian Weekend Magazine that is relevant to this talk of aging.

Elle McPherson said that her eysight started failing at the same time as the elasticity of her skin declined so that she looks the same to herself when she looks in a mirror. I think this may be nature way of sparing us from some of the angst of aging.

I saw that DD and thought how very kind of mother nature, but then it is a nasty shock when you see yourself with your glasses on.


A friend once said to me ; that we only age on the outside and the inside is only as old as we feel.
He was not speaking biologically, purely on feelings and appearance. That is why some days I am 24 and others 104.

Yes, I realise I am lucky, thanx JD!  :) It is surprising they get on at all as it would be hard to find 2 more different women! The only things they really have in common are our kids ...and...they both have Thermomixes!!  :D

Good ice breaker.

I'm very happy. I purchased my thermomix on interest free last December. I didn't want to part with $2000 all at once, which is pretty silly as I paid an establishment fee of $70 and $4.95 a month in account keeping fees. I use my slush fund to make the payments as DH wasn't quite on board with it and I didn't want to take the money out of our joint account. Yesterday he paid the balance out.
He said he can see how much I enjoy it, use it regularly and he is loving the meals. He has been to two classes as well.

A new hairdo always evokes nice comments from friends especially if you haven't changed your hairstyle for a while.  Sometimes shorter hair makes us look younger too CC.  When you have a colour, send me a pic please.

Thanks for reminding me I need a hair cut CC ;) I'm glad you got a good one, they seem to be hard to come by these days ???

Talking about hair cuts I really would love a change, I have always had medium long hair but I wear it up all the time cause I can't stand hair in my face. I have always been to scared to have it completely chopped off. But I can't have long hair for ever. One day I will be brave enough to have it chopped off :)
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

Maybe you could try on some wigs in shorter styles to what would suit you dede.

Thanks DFM :-*

Mandi, a change is always nice :) I'm not obsessed with my hair like some teenagers are, so I like a low-maintenance cut, which usually means shortish. In saying that though, I haven't done much with my hair since I shaved it off in 2010, so its getting a bit longer than I'm used to :-))
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Halex on August 02, 2012, 11:46:49 pm
I chopped mine off 4 weeks ago, it took a while to get used too, but I love it. It is so easy, blast the hairdryer 2 mins the use product, done, always looks good :)
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on August 02, 2012, 11:56:51 pm
Its great isn't it Hally? I didn't even have to worry about hair-drying or products for a few months because it was so short ;D
I did get called some horrible names at school though :(
But it was worth it :)

Of course, I'm not suggesting that Mandi shaves her hair right off, but it is very liberating ;D

Summer in the pool, easy. I am always saying to ds, dont splash me as I dontwant my hair to get wet etc. now I can just jump in & wont care.

The other thing you wake up in the mornings your late, wash hair, no extra time etc.

Hair length - mine is waist length, the few times I've thought about getting it shorter, DH has said "well whatever, it's your hair but I love it long."  & I love it when he brushes it for me, too - he does the best head massages beforehand!!! :)  That is always enough to make me happy!!! :D

Hair dresser? What hair dresser? I haven't had my hair cut for 18 months by a hairdresser, last hair cut was a few weeks ago when I cut my own hair :o
Maybe it's time I ventured in and seen the local hairdresser and ask about some advise on what to do with my thick black and grey hair.

Thanks so much ladies DS did wonderful last night and to be honest I never realised how lovely his voice is, all his teachers over the years have commented but I thought they were just being nice  :-))

Anyway my happy for today i finally finished cleaning out my pantry and now it is spotless, I threw out so many out of date things it wasn't funny and now I can see what I do and don't have, I also donated my old recipe magazines to the good sam's they give them to school's etc, so all in all about 12 bags of stuff gone

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on August 03, 2012, 11:29:26 am
It certainly does Judy, but thats what I want :) I do have a very quick recovery time though, so I can do a really hard workout on one machine and then have my heart rate back to normal within 5 minutes. I think today was probably my biggest session yet because it took a bit longer to get my heart rate down after that hour on the x-trainer. I think I had about a 10 minute rest before I moved onto my weights. And then I did another 30 minutes of cardio just to get my heart rate up again.
I love exercising :D

Usually do when I'm getting 4 eggs a day, we don't eat eggs everyday so they build up quickly (a dozen eggs every 3 days)

My chooks have just started to crank up laying again. After weeks of one egg a day and sometimes none, today there were three.

My DD25 said goodbye to us this morning after spending 3 weeks in Perth for training with her job she left at 4:30 this morning to drive back to Newman. I was very happy when she call this afternoon to say she was there safely.

Enjoyed a morning with DD27. It was her birthday yesterday and we took her shopping for a display cupboard for her new house. Then we spent some time making Rara's cherry bites and some cheese and rosemary biscuits for her party tomorrow.  I am happy to see her cooking more. Before we bought her a TM (which I also ge to use when we visit) she only ever cooked from packets. Now I just have to teach her about quality ingredients. She keeps buying Homebrand everything because it is cheap.

Oops hit send too soon......TMX was reward for getting job ( promotion and permanency) so I have had TM for 6 weeks, now to start the job!

How exciting GHM! Best of luck with your first day tomorrow :D :D

TMX was a great idea of a reward too ;)

I am Happy my DH cleaned the kids rooms, and the house, and hung up all the washing, while i went grocery shopping ..

 :) :)  My DH does so much for me...

I like your DH and I've never even met him Robyn! :D But shouldn't the kids be cleaning their own rooms? :-))

I'm happy that I went on my bike ride this morning and didn't fall off!! :D

Its always good to not fall off your bike Amy. How are the knees?
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on August 05, 2012, 06:37:06 am
The knees are still very painful Dash :( They keep trying to scab over but when I bend my knees it cracks the skin again. There is a lot of dried blood around them but I'm too scared to try and wash it off. They're very tender to touch. The bruises are very impressive colours too :-)) But I can see they are healing slowly ;)
Thanks for asking Dash :)

Well we got married in Church and had the reception at Araluen, a very trendy (at the time) reception centre at Ryde, my parents paid.
The reception cost $2,000, a lot of money 32 yrs ago and the grooms parents only paid for the cars and the alcohol in those days and LOL as we had a "dry" reception.

Second time round 49yrs old and cost about $700.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

Amy sometimes it feels like forever and other times it feels like yesterday.

I can relate to that feeling, but not in terms of being married :-)) And especially for so long! I can't imagine what it must feel like to have been alive for 29 years, let alone married ;D

Astarra, it sounds like your family is as close to perfect as they come :-*

DFM, it sounds rude to me that the groom's parents paid for so little :-\
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Delightful Den on August 05, 2012, 08:52:16 am
Amy the brides family always used to foot the bill for the wedding. The grooms family usually only paid for the alcohol. In a way I guess it was sort of like a dowry.

I think that is probably how the tradition started.

DFD, DD is right. 32 years ago that's how it was, not rude at all. When DD 25yrs married 3 yrs ago, her DH's parents paid for half the reception. Different times now.

Happy that I finally found some 2 inch nails and hung up all my brooms and mops in a cupboard high on the wall and cleared out cupboard under stairs to make room for my soaping stuff.

The shoe polish, ironing board and vax vacuum are now much easier to get at. The under stair cupboard is - as they usually are - not the greatest for storage and to keep tidy. I could really do with better shelving.... But as this is not our own house it won't happen.

Funny what makes us happy isn't it.

Sounds like you've been busy Michelle.  It's definitely not a paperless world.

We have a spreadsheet for our budget and another spreadsheet for our actual spend.
The system breaks down though as we never compare actual to budget  :-))
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Delightful Den on August 06, 2012, 02:02:51 pm
If I thought about it I think you could make a chart that would grab the data from the budget and actual spread sheets and compare them.

However it would just be easier to get the budget app for Ipad which will track all of that for you.

Each day that goes past, I am getting happier and happier. I am finding on a personal level the less I focus on becoming more consumer orientated (we are not starving so food is not an issue) and concentrating on the positives in my life, laughing at every opportunity (but not just for laughing sake - those people send me off the deep end) steering clear of negative people who sweat the small stuff and have obvious issues they don't see as their own, and putting family first - the happier I am.  If I could look at life the way a cat does, then I would have "The Secret to a Happy Life" and this would be the end of this topic.

Bugger bugger bugger, I spoke to soon about my sister going well. Dr reviewed the scan and decided that things have changed and baby might be here sooner rather than later :(
They admitting her to hospital tonight and will do another scan Friday and maybe send her off to Hobart hospital. :(
But we still staying positive and hope for a few more weeks yet.

Not sure yet Astarra, will have to wait and see, I think her DH will take some time off work to take care of him. But if she gets sent to Hobart her DH will go with her and I will have my Nephew stay here. We can only take day by day at the moment.
The good thing is that the baby should be fine if she was born today.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: astarra on August 07, 2012, 07:51:53 am
Yes that is good, I guess the docs will have to decide if she is better off out or in at this stage?
Really hope all goes well.  How is your sister in herself?
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: dede on August 07, 2012, 07:54:31 am
She's pretty upset, I thing more so she doesn't want to leave her little boy behind. She begged for bed rest at home, but the doctor said no. They were going to send her to Hobart tomorrow but she bided some time to wait till Friday.
She has been through all this before so she has a good idea on what to expect, but still doesn't make it any easier.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

Best of luck dede - I was very lucky with DS and I didn't have any complications. Well, not until labour, anyway. I can only imagine who distressing it would be for mum...

I'm happy because DS decided on a cake that he likes last night. We're going with a 'Curious George' cake, so now I can start planning and making! I'm very excited!

This is what I'm aiming for:

(http://media-cache-lt0.pinterest.com/upload/215328425903136323_us1rD54H_f.jpg)

I know it's a little over the top for a 3rd birthday, but I think it's more for me than for him. I know of people who pay for cakes (I was at a birthday party on the week-end for a 2 year old and his mum had paid a lot of money for his cake) and I would never do that. DS is only getting this becuase I want to make it. It also creates a great them for monkey-themed food as well. I'm also going to TRY to make monkey cake pop's.

(http://media-cache-lt0.pinterest.com/upload/209980401346720784_J9F3hczn_f.jpg).

I'm very excited about it - can you tell?

Not until October, but I'm starting to think & organise things now. I'm going to have his party at Mum & Dad's place, as I don't have a backyard and not much space inside, and they have a beautiful outdoor area with a big 'outdoor kitchen' that we can cook on, and there's heating if we need it. It's much nicer for entertaining. I have to be organised, because I'm going to have to take everything with me and make it there - I'm going to stay there for the week-end. It will be thermomix's first trip. Actually, second. The first trip was home from my parents house where the delivery demo was... lol

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: jakodai on August 07, 2012, 09:41:46 am
Thanks!! I'm a little nervous. But I'm normally good at copying things. I'm not very imaginative, but I can make good copies of htings. Hopefully that stands for cake making... :-S

I'm especially excited, because I get to buy the cake decorating goodies that I've wanted for ages but had no need for. The Wilton Cake Decorating caddy is only $48 from Amazon, and $20 postage, so still cheaper than the >$120 in Aus. And there's a few other things I'm going to buy as well, like the large fondant rolling pin, and the Wilton mat which has the circle measurements and stuff on it (I don't NEED this, but it's only an extra $8 to the Amazon order, so I may as well...). I love having an excuse to shop.

And no, the fact that I'm going to be spending more on the cake decorating equipment than on a professionally made cake isn't lost on me, but it is something that I've been attempting to do for a long time, and I have a very strong interest in it, so I'd like to think that I'll be using them a lot

Its been quite a while since I could do anything like this with my hair either Mandi. I shaved it off to raise money for the Leukamia Foundation a couple of years ago, and I'm starting to play with it a bit more now that its a good length :)

I am tearfully happy. I was listening to the radio and the Channel 7 helicopter had spotted one of 3 fisherman off the coast at Leeman who has been missing. They were describing how he was just  managing to keep afloat and they had driven a shark off that was circling him. They directed a rescue boat to him and the poor man didn't even have the strength to climb aboard. It was heart wrenching actually listening to it happening. He kept waving at them but didn't realise they couldn't winch him up. I was listening with baited breath, hoping he wouldn't go under before the boat got to him. When they got him onboard he just collapsed on the boat. They have found one more and I do so hope they find the other one.
It was so very emotional listening to it actually happen. I've just heard that one is seriously injured and the other is in need of medical attention. No mention of the third yet.

Not quite so happy now, one has died, still looking for the third.

Oh cookie, what a blessing for that man and his family. I really hope they find the third man.

Astarra, I love hearing about your girls, they are gorgeous :D :D

I am very happy today because I got a letter from my 9-year-old sponsor child in India. She is a beautiful young girl and I'm so happy that she writes to me and tells me what she's doing :) :) :)

I'm happy cause my Sister is allowed to stay home on bed rest :D
Will mean I have my nephew several days a week, but she has also organized childcare so I will be able to continue working from home without to much disruption. Fingers crossed now for a few more weeks (almost 29 weeks now)

She feels fine, and baby is growing beautifully, she looks well and is being positive. So we are all pretty confident that things will be fine.

Yep she is, my little nephew is a special baby too, he was born 10 weeks early and had lots of trouble breathing, got meningitis, pneumonia and a staf infection, he then got a hernia and had to have an op to fix that all before he was even supposed to be born. But he's now a very active 2.5 year old who loves his dede :) (But I can't blame him) ;D

Cookie1 - I'm with you, tears and baited breath. Watching that brought back memories of doing a search and rescue out of Cairns many years ago. We flew out to the boat and nothing we could do but wave and hope the army choper got there in time for them. Also my Dad, Uncle and a friend had their boat tip over years ago down south. They spent the night on the hull, with 1 man dead and sharks circling. Makes me sick just thinking about it again now. I feel for that man and his family.
I have not heard any news this morning, so don't know what has happenend overnight.

Sorry I've just realised this is the Happy Thread and mine was none of that!

Happy thoughts, happy thoughts...

I have a family of blue wrens in my garden and the gorgeous daddy comes and sings to me on the windowsill - showing of his stunning feathers. I tell him he is very handsome and he flits back and forth between the window sill and his harem of girls! Any wonder I don't get much done in my office - I watch him half the day!
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on August 11, 2012, 12:16:58 am
No worries Nikkit ;) I do love your story about the blue wrens. It reminds me of the blue wren that used to live near my grandparent's property, and it used to come right onto their patio and take little crumbs of cheese from grandpa's hand if he were sitting very still :D

Yesterday one of the mums commented on my weight, saying i had lost some  :-*  and today we are moving house  ;D happy days!

Thats great Meagan!! Always nice to have your weight loss acknowledged ;D ;D ;D

I'm happy Nikkit :D I went for a 2 hour bike ride in the cold rain this morning and then had a FANTASTIC hot shower when I got home, that made me really happy ;D ;D

Now I'm going gonging ;D

Yay Amy!
Errr...may I ask what is gonging? The last time I heard/saw that term used it was an email with Chinese men with gong attached to their you - know - whats and they were swinging them...had something to do with strength and length...

Yep - way too much info sorry!
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on August 12, 2012, 01:02:16 pm
ROFL ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

The gonging... oh dear me, it was actually quite horrible :(
There were eight of us in the session, and you lie on these matresses in a domed room with stars on the ceiling. They give you a scarf infused with some sort of oil, which you breathe in. Then you lie back and close your eyes (like meditation) and a lady bangs this big gong which hangs in the middle of the room. Then she gets a smaller one a brings it around to gong over everyone, so you feel the vibrations. She did some weird chanting as well.
But I'm never doing it again. The oil made me feel physically sick, like I was going to throw up, and I was so dizzy afterwards that I nearly passed out. I had to stagger straight to the toilets as soon as the session was over.

Dunno why that happened to me, everyone else was really relaxed and calm and apparently feeling fantastic ???

But to turn it into a happy story, I'm glad I know never to do it again ;)

Going ok Michelle, 29 weeks and 1 day today. She looked a bit drained yesterday though. She will be pretty bored from today onwards as her little boy will be away either with me or child care 5 days a week. She can't do anything so will be very boring.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Katiej on August 13, 2012, 08:59:12 am
Mainly I'm spending my week off hauling things out of our storage shed.  There are so many boxes!

As if the storage shed wasn't a large enough task, I've also decided to clean out all the kitchen, laundry and my personal cupboards at the same time (DH cupboards are his responsibility  :)).  I started last Friday and have been working non stop so far.  Three car loads to the charity shops and one car load to my MIL and SIL's.  Our front courtyard looks like a second hand store at the moment.  It's still a work-in-progress  :)

On Friday I sliced the top of my finger off, today I've banged my head so hard I saw stars and I've also falling flat on my bottom!  I think I need to be a bit more careful  :)

I also hope to get in some cooking and relaxing, maybe.

Jen that is really wonderful. My Mum had Parkinson's. It's not much fun. Make sure she tells the hostie's on the plane before she travels and they will look after her. That's what we did for Mum and she was helped on board and off and thoroughly spoiled on the trip. I'm very happy for you.

Glad to hear that you are happy with your new job Amy. Loving what you do certainly makes working much easier.

I was not happy at work today. I've been fighting off a cold since Tuesday. It made a resurgence today and I was just thnk about going home sick when my boss called. She was calling to tell me about reports that I have been requested for 2 of my schools and they are due by Tuesday. So I spent the afternoon fighting the fog in my brain trying to get as much of the reports done as possible.

Any how I am happy it is the weekend.

Not stressing Amy, if they had asked me for a time I wanted "it" picked up I would have said Monday. They didn't, they gave me an unrealistic time too good to be true. They stuffed up - I don't care, it is a big job and they are human after all.  They said come back tomorrow 4:30pm, and I would have happily given them Monday morning, but I need to allow more stuff up time to deliver on time myself. I can't say too much cos I will give it away but I am sooooooo excited (isn't that just the joy of giving but?) I love giving presents to people that I think they will really love - bring it on!

You sound as if you have gone to a lot of trouble for our goodie bag CP, we will all love it I'm sure.  This bag is going to beat any showbag you can get at the Royal Shows around the country.

I know I already posted this, but tickled pink that my spunky spotty horse was so good for me today when I saddled up and threw a leg over. He's had a couple of months off, but did everything I asked him to do without an arguement!
Just love him to bits and can't wait til cutting season starts again.

I've never been to a Royal Show, but I agree with you wholeheartedly Judy ;D

Yes, that is no good Amy. I will admit that even at the age of 63 I still love the Royal Show. We came down to it nearly every year. We also had the town show every year, but of course that was on a much smaller scale.

Tell him you'll cancel the cleaner when he agrees to do all the jobs the cleaner is going to do !! Men don't realise all the little things that get done like skirtings, window sills, dusting etc etc and it goes on ! Grrrrr men !

I am lucky though my DH does help with the cleaning ! The gardening, well that's another story ! He hates gardening so we have a gardener to do the lawns so he can help with the housework !

After reading the shopping thread and the snakes/creepy crawly stories I had to add my snake story there too. Didn't think I better add this one to that thread as well.
But it got me thinking about another giggle I had, and it made me kinda happy remembering times gone by, so I'll share... (at my expense!)

When I had a waist  and parts of my anatomy were more 'perky' and I didn't need to wear the over the shoulder boulder holders that are reinforced with high tensile fencing wire and more elastic than my Grandma's knickers (so...some 20 odd years ago), I lived on an island in the Torres Straits with my (now) hubby.
We went out hunting one day with friends and were quietly walking along tracking pigs. Not taking much notice of the guys up front and how they had gone around a low hanging branch on a tree I thought I'd take a bit of a shortcut (cos I was a bit hot and sweaty and over the hunting thing by this time) and ducked under the branch.
I quickly realised why the blokes had all gone around it. All hell broke loose and the quiet was pierced by me squealing and yelling and hopping around flinging my shirt and shorts off in quick succession. I had brushed against a big green ants nest and most of them had gone down my shirt and were biting bits of me that really didn't want to be bitten.
The guys (and my hubby) thought it was hilarious and sat back watching the "show". Now I distinctly remember none of them offered to help remove the ants from my back and I think a few of the Islanders were impressed by the white woman's dance (and err...other bits!).
Once all the ants were removed, they decided that I had made far too much noise and the pigs were long gone and we headed back. But - explained to me that green ants only hurt when they bite and I would be ok, and did I get any to put on the steak we now had to have tonight as green ants crushed onto steak is pretty good. (it is!)
They weren't too bothered by the fact that we did not bring anything home for "kai kai" (tea), (not after the entertainment they had!) and next time they went out hunting they came via our place and asked my hubby if I could come hunting with them again.
(while talking to eachother in pidgin english that they knew of a couple of good ants nests!) I had to decline and told the lads that I could make up my own mind if I wanted to go hunting and that I could understand a bit of pidgin english and I knew what they were saying!
We still have a laugh about that now when we reminisce about the "good old days"!!

How ghastly for you. I can imagine everyone enjoying the show though.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Nikkit on September 03, 2012, 05:57:57 am
Green ants only hurt a bit when they bite, so one or two is ok, but a whole nest full was painful. After about 5 minutes the pain is gone - thank goodness!
I do miss green ants though - you hold their heads, bite off their bottoms and have an instant lime hit. Really refreshing when it is hot and you are thirsty.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: cookie1 on September 03, 2012, 05:59:35 am
I'm sure we have come across them in our travels. Do they have a sort of bubble at the tail end?  A green bubble of liquid?

My GD was runner up in national final.
Her dessert won gold and her entree and main silver.
They said she has an amazing future career as only 17 years old and 8 months into her apprenticeship and  handles the kitchen like a pro.  ;D She was the youngest finalist that they have had.
We watched yesterday and after the comp I tasted her dessert. It was sensational.
I met Adrian Richardson from Good Chef Bad Chef and GD got photo with George Colombaris today and DD photo with Matt Preston.
Awards gala dinner and presentations tonight at Sofitel and just finished now
All the young chefs were amazing and plated up incredible food.
They all deserve credit.
Noticed yesterday Cuisinart pressure cookers in the kitchens.
Will have to learn how to post photos as I have pics.

Had lovely food here in Melbourne.
Thanks everyone for the recommendations.

My daughter took her first steps today and it was so cute to watch....I think her new soft-soled shoes had something to do with it. I was expecting her to just do a few steps and that's it but she even walked about 30 steps down the hallway. I didn't think I'd be so excited but it's so cute watching her do it over and over!! ;D ;D

Let's hope it's a keeper. 10 months is a long time to wait to get a full nights sleep. Did you wake up with a start and rush in to see if he was OK?

I remember rushing into my DD's (4) room when she first slept through!!  :D

I am happy thismorning as I had an awesome weekend. I got to tow my float with my new car, so was very happy everything worked there. After not seeing a cow for 6 months I am stoked that my horse got in and worked really well over the weekend in the cutting copetition. He was a star in my eyes! Our scores were bad, but I had a couple of huge break throughs with him (and me), all my work is starting to gel and we had a blast. We cut out one cow who was a real sweetie and we did get down and boogey-ed there for a bit.  We went hard, so I am so sore today. Came pretty close to getting sand in my knickers in one spot where I thought the cow, me, my horse and another rider and horse were all going to end up close and friendly in the corner :o

So I had a brilliant weekend, no sand in my knickers and we both came out of the pen with a smile!!

Sorry, that probably doesn't make any sense to many, but I am just happy happy happy that I had a really good weekend doing what I want to do with my spunky horse.

Off to do happy dances - carefully - 'cos I have a few muscles I forgot I had - while I clean the house!

Funny Nikkit glad everything went so well  :D :D :D

Just letting you know my DS15 got a call back for the school musical, which I had said last week he only got in the chorus as a principal singer (30 in the chorus and 5 were principal singer) which is a bit disappointing as instead of picking the best singers they went with the older boys and one boy in particular is in my sons year (nowhere near a good singer) got a part I would say because his mother is a teacher at the school. Just a bit disheartened they didn't pick the best singers and went with political correctness. In the end it is a show that people are paying money to see they should have the best people in the parts.  ??? ??? ???
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: mcmich on September 24, 2012, 01:00:46 am
It's good that he is a principal singer Yvette, but disappointing that they best person for the part doesn't get it.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: obbie on September 24, 2012, 01:18:56 am

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Yvette on September 24, 2012, 01:43:49 am
Thanks ladies he will be fine just annoying, not saying he was the best for the lead, but should have got a principal part.

What kind of dancing? DW and I used to do ballroom dancing. It is fun and a good workout.  Even though I am much fitter now then when we were dancing regularly I get tired quickly when we jive or cha cha.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on September 28, 2012, 06:27:08 am
I had my phone on a setting where I had to draw a pattern on the screen to unlock it, but I wanted to change it so that I had to enter a password instead. So I went into the security settings, but I must have pressed a wrong button because it locked itself and said it wanted the PUK code. I tried to find it online, but when I entered my details, the website told me I wasn't the authorised person. That was at about 10pm last night, and I couldn't be bothered ringing the telstra help line that late at night, so I waited until this morning and rang them as soon as I got up. Finally got the PUK code and unlocked it, but too scared to try and change any settings again ;D

I'm so happy that someone else is going to clean the new house we are moving into and at a good price!! There was so much to do there and it's such a weight lifted off my shoulders knowing that I will have it clean ready for us to move in  :D :D :D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: dede on October 02, 2012, 01:43:00 pm
That's great Tasty. Much better to move into a nice clean house :)
Good luck with the move, you must be excited
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Tasty on October 02, 2012, 01:52:51 pm
Yes it is exciting but sad at the same time as we will be leaving the home we first lived in as a married couple and had our first baby in. Lots of good memories in this house!

However moving into a bigger and better house in a family friendly area so good things to look forward to.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on October 02, 2012, 01:55:35 pm
Great news about the house Tasty! And remember you will always have those memories, no matter what house you are living in :)
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: judydawn on October 02, 2012, 02:03:09 pm
I have always cleaned the house I am selling - would never think to walk out and leave it for someone else to do :o  I'm sure our members would do the same.

Good luck in your new house Tasty, we all need room to grow and you will soon love the new house as much as you did the old one.

Some flowers for your new house.

They're lovely JD! I'm sure Tasty will enjoy them.

Happy because I'm heading down to my house in Albany on Thursday. Can't wait to get into the garden (very unlike me!) and sort the kitchen a bit more. Need to find a nice doona cover and a couple of other things while I'm there.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Halex on October 02, 2012, 08:48:58 pm
Tasty, I was sad when we sold our first house. We are on house number 3 & staying.

Always clean a house before leaving, cupboards etc.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: mcmich on October 02, 2012, 09:26:32 pm
Very exciting news Tasty.

I have never been overly attached to any house I've had and I'm onto No 7.
I was a bit sad when mum moved into the retirement village earlier this year. That home was where we had lived since I was five years old. Started kindergarten there and had the same phone number for 47yrs.

tasty a bigger house is a lot better for a family , it will be great lots of new memories to create

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: goldfish on October 03, 2012, 12:13:48 am
Tasty - a brilliant idea to get the house done before you moved in!  It's a huge load off your shoulders and now you can just concentrate on moving forward!  Good luck with the move - hope everything goes smoothly and that you quickly begin to feel "right at home!"
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Delightful Den on October 03, 2012, 02:40:50 am
My parents have lived in 3 houses in over 50 years of marriage. On the other hand my eldest DD was 5 before she had a birthday twice in the same house.  We have lived in 14 houses in 30 years. After a while you don;t get too attached to them. 

Though I did think the one we sold 2 year ago was going to be our growing old in house and I was very sorry to sell it but you really can't go back once you move forward.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on October 03, 2012, 03:56:42 am
I'm happy I've lived in the same house since I was born, I even have the same room, same curtains, same paint on the walls ;D
It will probably make it harder to move out eventually though :-))

I went for a run this morning and saw a baby bandicoot and a baby wren :D :D :D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: obbie on October 03, 2012, 05:24:09 am
we have lots of bandicoots Amy
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Tasty on October 03, 2012, 06:20:02 am
Thank you for the lovely flowers JD - how thoughful :) and for all the nice wishes from everyone. I wasn't confident that the house would be cleaned as the the family selling it has 3 young children and probably no time to clean as can be seen by the amount of dust that has accumulated on the venetian blinds. Any tips for cleaning those when I move in, on a regular basis?

Oh and I will finally have a dishwasher so need to learn how to use one.

We are looking forward to making new memories with our growing family and making ourselves at home. We have to wait one more day due to settlement being delayed by the other party.

My mum's birthday tomorrow too..... it seems to have crept up on me, the only thing I have planned is her cake :-\ Still can't decide on present. Or what to do about their dinner, since I will be working. Would be a bit rough for mum to have to cook on her own birthday!

First thing this morning before breakfast the cat brought a big fat rat inside from the derelict house next door. I'm happy that its bin day and I managed to grab it in a plastic bag and dispose of it before the truck came. Heard the truck about two minutes later so that was lucky. Cat was not happy and she's refused her brekky, and gone to visit the derelict house for something better.

Don't worry I ran and shut the doors to the bedrooms pretty quick. I dint want to pick it up but I just had to get in there and do the job without looking at it. The pressies just kept rolling in...5 mins later a dragonfly. Fortunately she's pooped and sleeping for the rest of the day  :-))

I saw Ratatouille when it first came out a few years ago DFM, and I remember I loved it! That's another one for the list ;D ;D
And I'm pretty sure I loved the Incredibles too :-))

I've never been into those drama type movies. I find them too.... dramatic ;D

Thanks Den, I'm so excited ;D Except for the new rule that says we have to have the log book for 6 months. So even if I do the 25 hours in 3 months, I still won't get my P's until the 6 months is up :(

So glad here in WA liek Amy said it's only 25hrs, it doesn't sound like much but when DD was doing her hours DH and DD would go for long drives on the weekends to nowhere and by the end of the 6mrths both were starting to get a little tired of each others company  ;D  
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: mcmich on October 23, 2012, 07:38:31 am
I think the more hours and experience the better. My DH fudged his daughters night hours which I think is so wrong.
One thing in NSW, if you have a driving instructor take you out then your 1 hour equals 3hrs up to ten lessons.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

In 'the olden' days we actually got our license on the day we turned 17. Then we were on probation for 12 months but didn't have p plates or anything like that.

I agree with you there DFM. I would rather have lots of practice and be a really safe driver. But its really expensive for young students to pay for their permit, a car, insurance, etc, and then have to buy gallons of fuel to cover all the hours :(
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: *suzanne* on October 23, 2012, 09:02:03 am
It is expensive Amy and DH wouldn't fudge the hours so they bonded a lot  ;D

We paid for her to get her licence and lessons for her 18th birthday present and she had bought her car after saving since she was 13

My mum is a better driver than SD, so she will be coming driving with me ;D

And I sure hope she doesn't offer to pay for more lessons for my 18th birthday present. That would be very boring. I would rather pay for them myself ;)

It worked out well for us all,she didn't need nor want anything more than her license so win,win for us ;D

This is a bit late but I was so happy to have a dishwasher on the weekend. This is the first time I've had a dishwasher and we had guests over on the weekend. I had a whole pile of dishes to wash after 3 courses (and there were only 5 adults) so it was so good to put them all in the dishwasher while I washed the pots and pans. Such a relief! This was a big deal for me ...can you tell??!
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on October 23, 2012, 01:29:26 pm
I certainly can tell Tasty! ;D And I'm sure I would feel the same as you because I have never used a dishwasher. All our dishes at home are washed by hand in a single sink :P

Congratulations on your dishwasher!! ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: judydawn on October 23, 2012, 01:43:23 pm
I can understand how grateful you were to finally have a dishwasher Tasty. I never had one in my life until we renovated the kitchen here and my DD2 and her DH wanted to buy us one.  I protested but in the end she won out.  I am now on my second one and it is one item I would not be without now.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Greyhoundmum on October 23, 2012, 02:47:06 pm
Not sure if I am happy about this or not....but here goes.
I wasn't home for dinner as I had a toastmasters function.  Came home and noticed lid of TMX off,  NOT how I left it.  Now for those of you who don't know,  my DH has been anti TMx since I got it and thinks it is just another kitchen gadget.

 I then asked him if he had been using it, he replied yes.....well it's only a blender so I made some paste!!!!


This worries me as he has not had any instruction at all  and I am concerned he will break it and it won't be covered under warranty.....or should I be pleased that he has tried to bond with TMX while I have been out????
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: judydawn on October 23, 2012, 03:05:05 pm
Mmm, I think I would rather be supervising when he used it GHM.  Very strange state of affairs, what sort of paste did he make?  A glue type paste or an edible paste?  I wonder what prompted him to use it for the very first time.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: obbie on October 23, 2012, 09:34:36 pm
GHM, I would be worried if DH used mine..

Amy don't you get your car today...

25 hours is crazy you could do that in a couple of months, glad I don't drive in WA it sounds like there is a lot of inexperienced drivers  :o :o
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on October 23, 2012, 11:34:49 pm
Thanks Yvette ;D The hardest part is going to be taking the money from my nana.... I know she really wants to help, and I really appreciate it, but its a lot of money for an elderly couple on a pension :-\ I will pay her back with interest though ;)

I probably could do 25 hours in a couple of months, but I still have to have the log book for 6 months :P

I would say there are more reckless drivers than inexperienced drivers >:(

Because it just wouldn't go together properly Megan.  The arm which turned the paddle wouldn't lock into place - there are a couple of discussions about this in this (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=11460.0) thread.  The latest model is much easier to put together.

good doctors are hard to get into.  I am sure that over time you will get better at having blood tests with the support of a god doctor.  My daughter was the same she always used to faint at the sight of a needle and she faced the fear by aiming to be a blood donor which she has now done!!! She is 19 and she is also an AMY!!
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on October 30, 2012, 11:32:31 am
I've been hoping each needle would get easier over the past couple of years GHM, but even though I talk myself into being really brave I can never keep it together :-[ My mum has suggested hypnotherapy to help with my phobia, but I don't like the thought of that :-))
AMY is a great name ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Greyhoundmum on October 30, 2012, 11:53:51 am
Amy, I think if your  problem is severe hynotherapy would be very good and should work well . My youngest daughter has two severe phobias one is of flying and one is quite weird, a phobia about people with missing limbs. It is called apotomnophobia!!! She has now had hypnotherapy and has recently managed a flight all the way to England, it was hard for her but she did it, a few months ago she would not have even considered it.

 As for the limb thing when she used to see a person with missing or fake limb she would faint straight out, the bodys way of shutting it out of the system.  She is now almost 15.  My Mum didn't help when she visited, she said that my daughter was " just doing it for attention". Anyone who knows anything about phobias will know that it is not at all controllable and certainly not something people do for attention!!!
Maybe a new thread - what are your phobias!!!???
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Delightful Den on October 30, 2012, 11:59:39 am
I agree with GHM Amy hypnotherapy would probably help with fear of needles.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on October 30, 2012, 12:05:34 pm
GHM, I agree that phobias are uncontrollable. I would love to be able to go into the clinic and have an injection or blood test without having panic attacks, but I can't no matter how hard I try. I get very embarrassed by the "attention" I recieve from my phobia of needles because its usually people telling me to grow up or toughen up.
I'm glad hypnotherapy worked for your DD. It sounds like she has improved a lot in facing her phobias! :D
Den, I think it would work too, but I don't know if I'm ready for it yet. When I think of hypnotherapy, I think of all those children's cartoons I used to watch where people were hypnotised and then their friends got them to do chicken dances and stuff :-)) It takes a while for me to trust people, and I don't think hypnotherapists would give me a few "get to know me" sessions for free :P
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Greyhoundmum on October 30, 2012, 12:25:53 pm
Modern hypnotherapy is not at all like that, any good psychologist will ensure they have your trust before they do this.  There is also a way that you can get this with very little gap payment. When you feel ready,  happy to give you more details.  When you are able to avoid your phobia,it is easy to put it off!! Unfortunately for my DD she got so bad that she would not go out or anywhere near dr or hospital " just in case " someone with missing limbs would be there. I totally understand how you feel.

JD I get 4 hours on Tuesdays  and 4 hours on Wednesdays. Carers pick DS up at 10 and drop him back at 2.  I tend to got out with friends one day and get paperwork done the other day. Sometimes it is just lovely to have the house to myself and potter around as I please. Never enough time to do everything I would like but I'm not complaining, 8 hours is better than nothing at all.  They had a Halloween party today and they had heaps of games for them. Big tubs of jelly which they had to put their hands in and try to find the fake eyeballs! Donuts hanging from the ceiling which they had to eat with their hands behind their backs, face painting and lots of hat making. DS came home having had a great day. He can't read or write and has limited verbal skills so trying to understand what he had done was a bit difficult today, but together we worked it out! He would be great at charades :)
Amy I did have me time - I spent way too much time on here today!! LOL

Have fun with your parcel Robyn.  We would like a full report by Monday.

I am a little unhappy this morning. It seems that my 2 week old iPhone 5 has died. It was working before I left home. It had a bout 50% charge but now nothing.  >:( I went home and got the charger but still nothing.

The real pain is that I will have to wait until next weekend to take my phone to Perth and get it looked at. In the mean time I will be phone-less because the new phone has a different size sim to the old phone.

When DD dropped her smart phone and smashed the screen and wouldn't work, she took it to her phone people (either Voda or Op***) and they gave her a different SIM card free so she could use my old iPhone as she was on a plan. They may do that for you in the interim until yours is up and running DD.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread

Yep, been there done that >:(  Years ago when DD1 came home for Christmas with her 3 beagles, yes 3 of them running amok in our house.  She went to the in-laws for one meal and because they have cats, I told her to leave the dogs with us.  One went onto our bed and I growled at her and told her to get down.  She growled back and showed me her teeth so I just said OK then, have it your way ;D  I am smarter than she thought though so down to the kitchen to get some food (beagles cannot pass food up at any time) and this led to her following me down the passage and outside where the door was firmly slammed in her face and she was made to stay there until her 'Mum' came home.  Beagles are now down to 1 and DD hasn't been home for years for Christmas.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Delightful Den on November 02, 2012, 01:04:52 am
It will be lovely to see her again and this time for more than a couple of hours. We will be baby sitting the dogs a bit becuase she has a few things to do in the city and her sister's unit is not big enough for a stumpy tailed cattle dog, a maltese shitzu cross and a blind cat.

The dogs aren't too bad. I can't blame them for their bad behavior it's not there fault they weren't raised right.  ;)

It's a good thing she doesn't spend much time on here or I could be in trouble.  :-))

Beagles are quite OK Amy if you choose from the litter OK.  This particular dog cowered in the corner when DD went to choose one and she felt sorry for it.  Never choose a dog that cowers, choose the one who rushes up and wants to lick you to death.  Her first beagle was a lovely dog but their food obsession can be a bit trying at times.  You can't leave anything around, even on tables etc because they will get to it somehow.

Yes, dogs seem to think with their stomachs don't they? My boxer and labrador are bad enough, I would hate to experience beagle begging! :o
What you said about dogs that cower - that explains something about my last dog, Murphy. The day mum went to pick a puppy from his litter she choose him because he just sat quiety in the corner while all the brown pups jumped up and wanted to play :-))
We had to have him put down a couple of years ago because he was too dangerous to take out. He was lovely and affectionate towards mum and I, but very few others :(

Think mine is going to be a Dalmatian now. Just not sure if it will be black on white or white on black???

I bet dalmations laugh at us when we try to figure out which way the colours go :-))
I read that dalmations can be a bit aggressive.... :-\

THey are more protective than aggressive.  They were bred as carriage dogs. They would run alongside the carriage or between the horses and if highwaymen tried to attack the carraige the dogs would try to protect the occupants. Hence there stamina and protectiveness.

And they are black or liver spots on white. Dalmatian puppies are born white and develop there spots after a few weeks.

And they are black or liver spots on white. Dalmatian puppies are born white and develop there spots after a few weeks.

I should have remembered that from 101 Dalmations!! :-))

So the stamina and protectiveness would be why they were used commonly as firefighting dogs? ???

Happy that I'm back on the forum, though there are 20 pages of threads that I haven't read!  :o 

We have had our 21 month old grandson staying with us for the past 9 1/2 days and so I have been flat out.  Thoroughly enjoyed it though and hope it's not too long before he stays again (though maybe a bit shorter stay  ;D )

Hope everyone is well.  :D

Blackwood it has been sore for a while (can't remember doing anything specific) he had a MRI last week and went to the specialist yesterday will need physio in time, he said it was better to do nothing for a while and see how it goes, it's a frozen shoulder
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: obbie on November 08, 2012, 02:37:28 am
Great news Yvette.  Has he tried Bowen therapy for frozen shoulder, works well.

Blackwood, my kids think they are teenagers, there 7 & 8.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Yvette on November 08, 2012, 02:38:54 am
Robyn I was telling him about it, but the specialist said to wait for a while before he does anything
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: obbie on November 08, 2012, 03:35:59 am
Ok Yvette, most specialists would not know what Bowen was any way.

Frozen shoulders are  common.

She just said "do you want to beat me again at scrabble tonight?" :-)) I don't know whether she is trying reverse psychology or admitting that she has taught me how to play scrabble very well ;D

Yay Amy the scrabble queen and only 1 more sleep, have you decided if your going out to lunch?

Thanks Suzanne, I should make myself a badge with "scrabble queen" on it! :D Yes, going to marron farm for lunch, mum has made a booking ;D

Post by: Amy :-) on November 18, 2012, 08:48:46 am
Hi 50+ ;D
I went to Nipper's Cafe. Are you in the south west too? :)

I'm very happy that my birthday has been wonderful :D I got very nice presents, lots and love and birthday wishes from my best friends, I saw my grandparents at lunch, we had really yummy food, and now I am at home pondering the endless possibilities of adulthood ;D

No We are in Mandurah, but there is a Marron farm not far from us on Mundijong Road and we have been talking about going there for years and thought that if you had gone, you might have been able to offer some comments. We don't each much seafood (or lake food, but our friends do.)
Glad you had a nice time.

Thanks 50+ :) If you go to that Marron Farm before me, you'll have to tell me what it was like! But if I go before you then I will tell you what it was like ;D I'd go anywhere for delicious seafood!

Amy so glad you had a wonderful day and the possibilities in adult hood are endless, just remember to have fun along the way

Thanks suzanne, I will do my best to have fun :D

I am happy as DH comes home tomorrow night  :D

Fair enuf - which Mrs Brown's boys episode do you laugh at the most?? They are all sooooooooo funny!  ;D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on November 20, 2012, 10:43:06 pm
God they're hilarious! ;D I love them all, but I loved "Mammy's Going" when the family are talking about putting the dog in a home and Mrs Brown thinks they are talking about her :D :D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: astarra on November 20, 2012, 10:45:52 pm
Yeah that was the first one I ever saw, It is sooooo funny!  ;D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on November 20, 2012, 10:48:15 pm
When I first saw an episode I didn't realise Mrs Brown was played by a man, so I thought she was just really unfortunate woman! :-)) ;D It is so damn funny though. And I can't believe so many of the cast are related!
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: astarra on November 20, 2012, 10:54:23 pm
It is hilarious as... Especially where that couple are in the cast and they are each other's enemy,but in real life they are married! :D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on November 20, 2012, 11:00:07 pm
Absolutely LOL ;D And the kid who plays Buster is actually Mrs Brown's son in real life but she has to pretend to hate him! And some of the things they talk about.... man, I would be embarrassed to hear my parents talk about that stuff! :o :D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: astarra on November 20, 2012, 11:01:49 pm

It is probably actually funnier (if that is possible) knowing the background story too!!  :D

5 More sleeps........,
the delivery man is due anytime now with some of my Christmas shopping, I really should start wrapping otherwise Santa gets a bit tired Christmas eve, when do you all wrap?
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Delightful Den on November 26, 2012, 02:03:13 am
We wrap some things as we go or get them gift wrapped as we buy them but the bulk of the 'wrapping' is done in cloth bags made of Christmas material. DW' made them years ago when the girls were young.

After one Christmas she looked at the pile of paper that we had to throw away and thought it a waste. So she started buying different Christmas pattern material when they had it out cheap in January and over time she mad a range of different sized bags with draw strings.

It makes wrapping pretty easy. The girls still use them. When they come home on Christmas eve they go and select bags from pile of empties under the back of the tree.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Kimmyh on November 26, 2012, 02:03:37 am
4 sleeps Suzanne woohoo. I start wrapping after the tree goes up and just do the rest as I buy them.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: *suzanne* on November 26, 2012, 02:18:21 am
Are you putting yours up on Friday Kimmy?

What a great idea that is DD, pity I have already bought oodles of paper  :-))

I walk into my WIR and think dear lord I'll be here forever, I think I might start doing a bit each night it doesn't help that DD20 thinks she is still young enough to get the same as the little ones, she even hangs her stocking still and it still gets filled  ;D, geez I love this time of year  :D :D :D

Den, tha bags are a great idea. It would save a lot of money and paper. I think I might do that :D

Not sure when or where we will put our tree up. Its a bit hard with renovations happening and stuff everywhere! :-))

Ummm cuz I want my splashback tiles siliconed so there is no grout to clean, and DH doesn't know how to do it but says he will be able to work it out.  :D And also it took me over a year to find the perfect tiles!  :)  We repainted the whole house (except for laundry and bathrooms, they are next for a complete overhaul), made an arch between lounge and dining room into a bigger square walkway, new carpet thru where carpet goes, new drapes and a whole new kitchen.  :D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on November 26, 2012, 04:55:28 am
Wow, that sounds great! :D I love the feel of new carpet under your feet ;D

Light coloured carpets are awful, they show so much dirt :-)) Grey is a good neutral colour ;D

We went neutral with everything so when we find a bigger house to buy, it will be easier to sell this one.  :D And it is so easy to dress up, everything matches!  :D  White and grey all thru.  :D

Thank you girls. I have played with this team for almost ten years now and we have made many grand finals in that time and just couldn't win one. most of the time we would lose by only one or two goals and even drew once only to lose in extra time. For some reason this year our luck has changed as we one the summer season grand final earlier in the year and now this one. Back to back makes all our hard work feel so worth it.

I certainly was Mich ;D We used to have carols by candlelight at Middleton Beach. We played carols and Christmas songs and there were singers and other performers. The spectators brought picnic rugs or camping chairs and they sat with candles to light up the beach. Last year we had close to 300 people there, it was amazing. And they all sang along to the songs :D

A mother passing by her son's bedroom, was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, she saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, 'Mum.'

With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and, with trembling hands, read the letter...

"Dear, Mum. It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid scene with Dad and you. I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am.

But it's not only the passion, Mum. She's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.

In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!

Don't worry Mum, I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself.

Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren.

Love, your son, Joshua

PS. Mum, none of the above is true. I'm over at Jason's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that's on the kitchen table.

Amy Clinker is a very cute name and a very pretty bird

Happy because it's actually hot like a summers day should be, healthy all round, nearly finished my Christmas shopping but not so happy that there aren't enough hours in the day, I pop on here to have a quick look and too many pages to look through, so much to do and I'll probably miss something on here  :-))

 :-[ really Amy am I that predictable?

  DS11 informed me that he needed candy canes and small chocolates for school this morning so after a very quick trip to iga and getting home before 9am for my  groceries to be delivered and that takes forever putting away (wish they did that too)  I haven't had time to sit but just taking 30 minutes to gather my thoughts and then back to it
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

I think they have run out of excuses. The house is paid off. They drive really nice cars. Have climbed to the top with their careers - mind you didn't have the interuption of children although they are the very loved and adored Uncle and Aunty.

They live in Western Sydney and plan to get married on a paddle steamer on the Hawkesbury.  8)

Happy as I have just taken DH for a walk to Mum's via the bakery for pies & spring rolls for lunch plus some extra goodies for Mum's freezer for her for later.  Cooler here today so it was nice out walking/pushing and is the first time DH has been anywhere for more than a month (apart from his trip to hospital).  On the way back home we called into the Bali shop and bought a few bits and pieces for the grand-kids plus a picture for my bedroom of my favourite flower - frangipani.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread

its 12 Klms here before you find anything, so no walking to anywhere.

It was nice girls, only a 7 minute walk to the shops and Mum is 2 minutes further on.  The Balinese shop only recently opened next to the bakery and they have some lovely stuff in there, water features, pots etc. This is my picture, haven't hung it yet.

Suzanne I used to hate that. One time at the zoo I gave a trainee 5 children to mind. At lunch time they excitedly told me how one had fallen into the elephant enclosure and had to be hauled out. Needless to say, after lunch she didn't have any children to mind.
I dreaded it the most when water was involved. You were brave.
Title: Re: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: *suzanne* on December 15, 2012, 02:31:54 pm
brave or stupid it's a fine line, but they were all very good. my nephew is 4 and very literal I said to him stop here and we'll wait for every one only problem he didn't follow when we all started walking off head count after 20 steps, one missing, turn around and he's still in the same spot after that he held my hand the whole time ::)

Cute Suzanne - but frustrating...my miss3 is like that, so literal!!
Tell her to hop into bed...she will hop all the way to her room then stand by her bed hopping trying to hop high enough to get in.
Tell her to pull her socks up (as in behave) ...she pulls her socks up (or says she has none on!!)
Tell her to run and (whatever) ...she will run and (whatever)
Tell her to behave...she will say "what is a hayve, and how do I be one?"  :-))

I always wanted to see them when I was young CC. I remember standing at the junction of two dual carriage ways going from Glasgow to Edinburgh when I was in first year high school waiting to see their limos driving past as they had performed in Glasgow and were going onto Edinburgh. Stood for hours but caught a climpse and I was euphoric. ;D
Saw them here years ago and I was on a high for weeks  ;D

Last week in the shopping car park I saw a parked car that had somehow ended up sideways parked and had hit another car. No occupants in either. I took some photos with my mobile, and then went off to report to centre management. When I came back, the offending car had gone - and hadn't left a note! Driver comes back and gets a real shock with us standing there looking at the damage. Heard from her today to say that she just had to pay an insurance excess of $450 to get her car fixed but she will get it refunded. The photos had licence plate details and showed the positioning of the cars. Police will be able to trace offenders details from this and I would love to see this persons face when they realise they didn't get away with it  ;D ;D ;D I felt like a busy body, but what the heck.

Well done CP,

Having a little giggle here, one letter on my laptop wont work its the letter in on the lower row that's  in the middle of v and n, I have to rely on spell check and sometimes it just doesn't show the  word I want, try typing  a post and not using this letter, gets tricky. :D  luck I also have an ipad that I can use too.

Reminds me on Saturday whilst cleaning windows I got a text message, and as I replied I got water on the phone on the "s" key. It went haywire and kept going "great *ss      ssssssssss   great sex   sssssssssss" over and over as the dictionary went into overtime with all the most embarrassing words. I just ended turning it off as it was having a Tourette's moment  ;D

Trying to be happy!!! But maybe a bit down?? Having trouble "adapting" to the phase of parenting late teens/ young adults DDs are 15  17 and 19. Middle DD turns 18 on Xmas eve.  They no longer want to be with us, have other  plans for Xmas day ( well two of them do) and no longer want to come on family holidays.   I should be happy for them as the two eldest both have boyfriends so they re happy. 

I knew this day would come but I am finding it a bit hard making the transition. Anyone have any tips?
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: CreamPuff63 on December 17, 2012, 02:18:10 pm
i wouldn't say much, only that you are really going to miss seeing them on the day/have them share lunch/see all the rellies. Its their decision and Im sure they really want to be with you more than anything. Its only one day, perhaps if they don't change their mind why not arrange for them to come around either Chrissy eve or Boxing Day. Its just one day of the year, and the less said the better I reckon.

Holidays, well that happens as they get older. Just think on the bright side that you don't have to cook for so many people, and you can go out for a meal or two. One day you'll all be together on a holiday, but the days when you had them with you all the time are probably a thing of the past for a while.

Oh GHM, this must be so hard!  I can't imagine a time when my boys don't want to spend Xmas day with me!

But I do remember that when I was your DDs ages, I missed a couple of Christmases with my family too.  I was traveling, living in other states or had 'better offers'!!

If its any consolation when they start to have children of their own, they will come running back to you and will need you more than ever.  They are just starting to experience their independence and it's fun and exciting.  In a couple of years, after life has wearied them a little, the comfort of coming home for Christmas is like no other.  For me, it was a phase that lasted 7 years or so, but now I make sure we see my parents every Christmas even though we live interstate.

I guess it's just remembering that 'this too shall pass' and eventually your adult children will want to come home for Christmas.

Thanks CC, Kimmy and Amy, I am glad it is now almost finished.  It was my first ever mosaic project but maybe not my last.  Next time I will do something on a flat surface as some of the curves of the pot proved challenging.  Once it grouted I will post a photo of the finished product.

I'm happy as I just had a lovely chat with my SS recipient!  ;)

I'm also happy with my lovely new book from my SS ( I wonder if they will let me know who they are...) ;D

I'll tell you if they don't Katie ;D

Are you allowed to do that Amy  ???

I'm happy that my mini cheesecakes are looking fantabulous (thanku Johnro again and again for this ripper recipe). I'm also happy that once upon a time many years ago I actually saw Santa's lit up sleigh going across the skyline from the windows of our beach house. We used to leave all the doors wide open because there was no chimney so he could find his way to our tree. I feel sorry that Santa probably didnt know where to put the presents cos we haven't put our tree up this year, but he must have come early to Grinches whilst I went to the toilet cos there is a big pile of pressies in the lounge room. Yay! how did that happen  ;)

That sounds like fun GHM. We have been banned from seeing Les Miserables and the Hobbit until DD2 gets down from up north.

Hi ladies, nothing so radical, it is on her lip!! i am hoping the novelty wears off quick!! who is that pierced and tattooed man???
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Bonsai on December 28, 2012, 12:02:52 pm
A lot of piercings are just holes, and if you take out the piercing the hole closes over (except if you've used a stretcher) in which case you're left Iike a Bassett hound with stretched bits of skin.

I have 3 kids DS24, DS 22 and DD 19. I figure some piercing and / or weird haircuts is the least I have to worry about. Many families struggle with teenage children with drug issues or mental health problems so I figure a few bits of metal are nothing compared to the trauma and heartache some go through. At least mine are all in one piece ! And my heart goes out to those whose kids are struggling in the world.

 A dear friend of mine's DD died age 11 from cancer so never experienced any of the things we fret over.....       

Be careful what you wish for.
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: mcmich on December 28, 2012, 07:45:23 pm
So true Bonsai.

Hopefully the novelty will wear off GHM. My son nearly 23yrs had quite a few piercings but has taken all of them out now. He has tattoos as well but not on his face. My DH has lots of tattoos including some traditional Maori ones done with a bone when he was a teenager. He also has his ear pierced twice but took 1 out when he turned 50s and is considering taking the other one out. I hope he doesn't.  :)

Thank goodness Julie ;D

Mich, I'm amazed your son took all his piercings out. I thought the teen and young adult years were when these trends were most popular? Maybe I'm behind the times ;D
Your DH's traditional Maori tattoos sound very interesting. I can't imagine how they would have been done with bone?
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: mcmich on December 29, 2012, 06:51:47 am
He is over the piercings Amy, unfortunately can't get rid of the tatts that easily. They are only on his upper arms though. One very small one on his upper chest, that I love - EST. 1990 - in a lovely script.  :)

I'm someone that wears very little jewellery and I don't have any piercings - not even my ears - love seeing it on other people.

Not much into piercings myself but would love DH to put his second earing in. Like tatts on other people too.

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Mama Fergie on December 30, 2012, 01:41:01 am
I have to say I don't like piercings other than ear piercings and I really dislike tattoos. I wasn't allowed together my ears pierced until I turned 21 even although I was married the year before LOL. Got them pierced on my 21st birthday.
I love jewellery so earrings were a must  :)
My eldest DD and one DIL both have small tattoos on their ankles. All my DD's and eldest 2 GD's have eir piercing and both my DD's had nose studs in their late teens much to our horror. However we said nothing and both took them out within a month or 2.
GD 17 now has one on her nose but rarely has it in as not allowed at work thankfully.
I agree with Bonsai and if that's the worst that tey do then we are very lucky  as so much worse can arrive on our doorstep.
 So don't stress GHM as the novelty wears off.

Hope you have a lovely time with your family JD and a very happy birthday to your little GD.  ;D

I found the recipe here (http://catecancook.blogspot.com.au/2011/05/bourbon-ribs.html) if anyone is interested in trying them and hasn't got Nico's TMX booklet or his book Cooking Passions, Food for Friends which has a few TMX conversions in it.

Where you get eggs in the supermarket there is a button kids can push to hear a clucking chook. Yesterday I had to laugh there was a little boy continuing to press the button pretending to be a chook. He was in his own little world.

CP I must look for that button. It would have been fun to see.

Judy when Mum was alive and I showered her on the weekend I always got saturated. I never gave her the shower either. I think I wasn't very good at it. We used to just giggle, it sure beat crying. There is obviously a skill to it.

That is great Amy.  :) It is always good to keep in touch with family. Sometimes we only seem to get together at funerals and weddings. The funerals seem to happen more regularly than the weddings.  :o

happy, I finally got some sense from a case manager from whirpool.

If the overseas call centre had answered my phone call in the last 3 weeks, my dead fridge would have been fixed under warranty.
They answered on Monday, and the warranty ran out on Friday last week.  :'(

There email us crashed on monday on their website too, as all my info went.

They offered to warrants parts, not labour.
labour is $130 to look at it, and then more to fix. :)

 Finally some customer service.... :)

Thank you Mr Google again.  Just keep googling, and you will find it.

Loved Les Mis  and went with DD- didn't think I would like it with singing at the press of a button but couldn't help myself.

Does anyone remember way back probs early December  when I managed to capture some idiot who smashed into RIGHT HAND SIDE PASSENGER DOOR  in a shopping centre car park? Turns out the poor girl then was in another carpark visiting her friend when someone smashed into her FRONT driver door. She's up for a bit of money with the second smash but she looks to be a battler and wants to meet me somewhere local and give me a thank you present because she doesn't have to pay out thousands for the first smash. I feel so rude cos I haven't answered her SMS cos I don't want a thank you gift, and I'm not sure I really want to catch up with her (ie. I don't want a "needy relationship" to develop). Help?
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Gertbysea on January 12, 2013, 09:31:03 pm
Just tell her to pass it forward and that will be thanks enough. No need to get involved. I think most people under stand the pass it forward concept these days .

Judy, just caught up with your news re help with Geoff, so happy for you.  :)

Have a great holiday Obbie  ;D

Agree with Gert, CP, if you do contact her just tell her to pass it forward by saying "Only to happy to help, gift not necessary, you maybe able to help someone else in the future"  "All the best" or something like that.

Astarra, happy things are going well for you  :)

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on January 12, 2013, 11:01:51 pm
Sorry CP, I wouldn't know what to do in that situation :-\ But I guess you could do what the other girls are suggesting. Tell her you know she would have done the same for you. Tell her to save the money and use it to repair the other window.
Its a tricky one because it sounds like she's just trying to show her gratitude :-\
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: judydawn on January 12, 2013, 11:07:50 pm
I can understand where the lass is coming from CP - I would also want to show my appreciation.  There is no need for a needy relationship to develop, she may get a few things off her chest but if you have the time, I would certainly meet the poor girl.  You might just make her day with your lovely smiling face and friendly nature.

I remember when my DD had her handbag stolen from a nightclub.  It was dumped in the yard of an old lady in the hills, miles from the nightclub and there must have been enough information left in there for her to ring DD (no money of course)and let her know she had the handbag.  DD went up to collect it, armed with a bunch of flowers and the poor old lady was so scared of strangers that she opened the door a few centimetres to hand out the bag and collect the flowers.  It was nice of her to do the right thing even though she was obviously not looking forward to the exchange.

After 2 weeks of trying every avenue to contact a Fairfax company, sometimes holding for 30-45 mins a time, emails, etc I managed to circumnavigate myself to actually get to speak to a real person. He had to listen to my frustration first as I was only trying to pay an invoice. Not good enough for a multi national company like that to admit to being short staffed when there are many people who would step up if given the opportunity.  

time lapse: Hey what do you know, I've since had a follow up call  :D

Happy also its nearly lunchtime cos my stomach is growling

Mine is kinda sappy too.

Went to make a cup of tea first thing this morning (DH at work), and I found a little note in my cup, just saying "I love you" with a heart and kisses.  He knew it would be the first thing I would do.

Later he rang to see how I was and I said I'm feeling really tired and cbb today, he asked if I'd eaten and I said no just the tea but for some reason I really felt like a cornish pasty  ??? Can't explain that, been ages since I've had one.  Anyway we said our goodbyes and about 20 mins later he came in carrying one.  :o  He'd been and bought one in his lunch break and brought it home for me.  :-*

I shouldn't be surprised as he does lovely things for me all the time and I spoil him too.  We've been together 33 years.  :D
aww, that is lovely <3

He is happy he didn't have to be doped to the eyeballs, I'm happy as it saved me some serious dollars, equine dentist not happy as he should have taken before and after photos so he could write a paper on it as it is pretty impressive what he has done, and the new vet student from Singapore wasn't so happy either as she missed out on helping with 2 extractions!
I'm also happy as it means I don't have to give anti-biotic injections everyday. I don't do injections very well, actually I lie...I am the biggest girl and heave and retch and carry on as soon as I look at putting the needle anywhere near my boys!
So yep...I'm happy  :) :) :)

Happy dance Kimmyh...understatement of the year (so far!)
I have MY music playing err rather loud, I have danced (somewhat resembling a frog in a blender - but hey - who cares!?) and sang, (hmmm no-one to really compare myself to - I'm so melodious!). My horses kept their distance when I was hanging out washing - not too sure if they knew who I was out there, so they've stayed off the back lawn all day which is unusual for them.
Don't get me wrong - I love my girls, but today has been utter bliss!
I do look forward to them coming down the drive at 3.15 so I can hug them and hear all about their first day back.

Hope you get the job Amy
I'm happy because I had a lovely lunch yesterday at Chianti's with some girlfriends, my ex-neighbours gave me a bucket of figs from their tree, and today I actually went to the movies with some other friends.  ;D

Hanging out for it to cool down so we can get ours going again.

Amy I was thinking about you on the way home today - did you get the job...dare I ask? I may have missed something here - and apologies if I did.
I'm happy as it is cooler today than the last few days - only 37 here   :P better than 43, but come on autumn, you can roll in anytime now. Please!
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on February 14, 2013, 04:38:34 am
I still haven't heard Nikki :-[ The interview was over a week ago and the guy said he would let me know within a week! I don't know if I should still expect a call or not... but I have applied for a couple of other jobs so I guess I'll just keep waiting and hope I hear something from someone soon! ;)

37 is still too hot for me :P But anything over 25 is hot to me :-))
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Nikkit on February 14, 2013, 05:19:29 am
Darn Amy - was hoping you would have heard by now. I'd give him a call and jog his memory.
Hope you hear from someone soon.
25! That would be bliss! i think we may have gotten down to that last night - but then I was asleep so didn't feel how cool it was anyway  :(

I was at Dd's house this morning and her blind cat named Ninja attacked me as I walked past.  :-))  He did it twice, the first time he just reached out and smacked my leg, the second time he leapt straight up in the air at me. That is how he got his name, Ninja.  ;D

DS11 has been accepted into the specialty music program at school  playing the trumpet so I'm of to get what he needs he is very excited and I must say the noise isn't as bad as I thought apparently he has good blowing technique ;D

Good to hear Suzanne, I love going to GS's Grandparents day at her school and being entertained by different aged kids before we go to the classroom.  Can't wait for the day when my own GD is up on stage amongst them but I think she is more likely to be a swimming star than a music genius even though she should have both swimming and music in her genes from her Father and Pop.

I still have no news on the job front :-\ I'm going to hand my resume around a few places today. I rang a cafe yesterday and the lady said she had a staff member leaving but already had someone lined up to take his place. Bummer! :(

Maybe I could form a trumpet duo with Suzanne's DS and we could make lots of money busking ;D

Darn Amy, well hope the next one comes your way. Keep trying and stay positive.

I'll send Miss 11 down to you Amy, she has been playing the clarinet for 12 months, is thoroughly hormonal and very trying at the moment. She'd make up the trio and you can all busk to your hearts content.

Not that I'm trying to get rid of her or anything, but if you offered I'd put her on the next bus down!! (Just pay me back the bus fee and all will be good...  :o )

your funny nikkit gotta love tweens
happy today finally got to the hairdresser's so I feel like a new woman amazing what 3hrs in a chair can do for you ;D
Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Nikkit on February 20, 2013, 05:52:20 am
Amy - I wasn't asking you to adopt her - just take her!!
She does have some good points, she can cook, she is pretty clean, loves animals, gives good cuddles, is happy (most of the time), is very good at public speaking. I'm sure there is more...

Suzanne - tweens - yes, that's her. Knew there was a word for her "stage".
I need your chair too - not feeling very wonderful at the moment. Amazing what a tween and a teen can do to you - and it ain't all good!

Miss 16 took about 15 years off my life as she drove us to school thismorning. Screamed around a right angle corner at 60 and looked at me and said " oh that was a bit quick for that corner wasn't it?". I had to take a deep breath (I think it was me that screamed actually) prised my fingers out of the armrest, poked my heart back into my chest, pulled my foot out of the floor where I had tried to brake and ever so calmly said "yes darling, I think we need to slow down a bit more for that one thanks".
Soooooo glad there was no-one coming the other way - all they would have seen was me in the passenger seat like this   :o :o :o

Hormones mcmich and Amy - they are just the pits when they can't handle them and will not listen to any reasoning and advice on what to do. I tried to have a chat with her last night and said that I had been her age and had gone through what she is going through, all I got was a withering look and "yes, but that was SO LONG AGO, you don't remember all of it and it has changed now"  :-))
PARDON ME! It has changed? Gee - can anyone tell me how and what has changed please!
It was a real struggle not to bust a gut laughing! Obviously I am way over the hill and have absolutely no idea what I am talking about.  :-))

The father daughter bonding thing with the driving lessons isn't working so well. They are both too much alike! We are paying someone to take her for lessons. (have a new instructor who is wonderful) But I get her to drive when I can so she just keeps learning. I try very hard to keep my mouth shut and not tell her what to do.

Good Luck Amy - you'll blitz your test  :)

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: Amy :-) on February 20, 2013, 07:03:03 am
Thanks Brenda ;D :-* Oh the freedom..... I can't wait :D

Nikki, I've heard that all hormonal young girls are like that :-)) So don't feel special LOL ;D
Oh, and I'd also be fascinated to know how hormones have changed, if she'd care to enlighten us ;D

Good idea paying someone else to take her for lessons. Its expensive but worth it, I think ;) Less domestics!

Title: Re: The Happy Thread
Post by: cookie1 on February 20, 2013, 07:48:32 am
Nikkit thank you for the great laugh. I can remember daughter doing a similar thing. Roaring into a roundabout  at 60 kmph+. I Grabbed the seat, and put my foot on the non existent brake in the passengers seat. When I suggested that it helps to check for vehicles first she informed me that the driving instructor had told her to get into roundabouts as quick as she could and keep going, making others stop. She soon got sorted out on that one.
After 15 years I can almost drive with her without looking like I am panicking. She is quite a good driver now.
