Things that really make me happy...............
« on: June 10, 2013, 04:26:46 PM »
So there is a the fantastic 'what really annoys me thread' and respect to letting out all that pent up rage and frustration. However, I thought we should have a happy thread to balance it out and allow us to release all that joy and euphoria that we also keep pent up.
I think that comments about how lovely our kids and partners are should be taken as read though otherwise we'll end up having the battle of how cute our kids are (and mine are really cute).

So here goes:

1. When a beautiful woman smiles at me (winks are even better)
2. When payroll tell you that they have underpaid you and you'll be getting 600 extra next pay check. This happened to me last week just when I needed 600 which was a bonus.
3. When a politician gets caught taking back handers/ with their pants down
4. When you get fantastic Christmas presents which are actually useful (like a lovely hatchet)
5. Drugs
6. When you go to a fabric shop and they are selling off stuff cheap which just happens to be the cloth you have been looking for
7. When I look around the room and see that I am the best dressed bloke
8. When I am really hungry and come home to find the meal I've been dreaming about is waiting for me on the table
9. Good cheese
10. When it snows and I get the day off work
Life is too short to listen to s**t music

Good thread!
Taking a punt on something on E bay with rubbish pictures and vague measurements and when it arrives it's in mint condition and fits like it was made for you.

Getting voted player of the season for the first time after 30-odd years playing footy.

Trying on your new Crombie cardy that you have picked up ridiculously cheap from one of the gents on this forum and finding that it fits like a glove. The missus says it looks great as well so a double win situation.

Steve, many thanks again.

So you got to the Post Office to pick it up Iain. Glad you like it and it's a bonus that your good lady does too. Nice one!

When the tailor gets it right from the offset and either no or 1 fitting is required.

Riding through the scenic countryside on the 50 year old shopping trolley in glorious weather.

A powerful record that is either new or is so excellent it makes the hairs of my neck stand up every time I hear it.

Being asked by James Hunter to DJ for his gig at the 100 Club!  :)

The music of The Beatles.
Paulie may have moved slow, but it was only because Paulie didn't have to move for anybody.

Arriving at the bar in a club and your mate has already bought you a drink.

I imagine it would make me happy lol
