The anti-ranty thread

The success of the rant thread has been obvious for all to see. I thought, however, that for the less permanently grumpy amongst you us some form of balance was required.

so here is somewhere to celebrate the things that make you smile, and give you a warm fuzzy feeling (apart from incontinence)

my starter for ten: My eldest has been picked to play for his club in a six a side tournament at the mighty Luton town. A small thing in the general scheme, but he is made up and so am I!!

My youngest makes me smile. When we are at football, we always have to bring a chair, and Robbie sits in the chair, with my phone playing angry birds. The other day, I looked through the photos stored on the phone, and found some specials that Robbie had taken, made me smile.

The Beatles song, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. Don't ask me why...
Actually, I think it's the intro.

This cost me a tenner, but so L'Oreal.

My other half cracks me up with the things she comes out with sometimes. Example:

Me: Darling, your big toenail is looking a little bit long at the moment.
Her: Yes, it's so I can climb the walls when you make me mad.

Hahahah! Good girl!

Telling a very nice young man on the phone that I was a pensioner - he had been wanting to speak to someone between 18 and 45 years of age.

Also, telling another young man, that as I was a pensioner, I couldn't afford his lovely solar panels!

Edit: just makes life easier and more real. I've done 'cold-calling' in my time and know what an awful job it is. Now I can refuse politely and we can part on good terms, plus I'm taken off their list!

My grand-daughter who is always pleased to see me and remembers the games we played the last time I visited.

Jen, I remember my wife answering the door to a random salesperson, and he asked her if her mummy was in!! I was in the front room and I can't remember the last time I laughed so much.

I'm not sure the chap was quite prepared for the tirade that followed!!

Had a puncture the other day - got a dealer quote of £390 to replace the tyre....

Car's been mine for three weeks, and for the first time ever I took out tyre insurance :thumbsup:
