Smiles all round….

Well, after my lunch on Sunday that involved the ‘tell all’ interlude in the ladies (and which thankfully the friend who was the centre of attention wasn’t at) l feel a bit of light relief is in order.
So here are a few of my Smiles from the past few days

smileys galore

After reading about the horror and misery caused by the earthquake in Nepal it was news of the old and the new that made me Smile.

There was the story of Funchu Tamang 101 years old being found alive with just a minor leg injury.  It would appear his daughter in law dug him out of his destroyed home and he took shelter outside in the garden.  ‘I work in the field and walk every day’ he said – maybe we should do likewise.


Then there were Smiles when the news arrived that a little 4 month old baby boy  (Sonit Awal) had been found alive and well.  Let’s hope that is the most trauma he has to suffer in his life.

Watching a programme on SBS last night I Smiled when I saw a segment that concluded that time spent outdoors in the sunshine had the effect of lowering blood pressure.  Not brand new news as this series of ‘Trust me I’m a Doctor’ was first shown in the UK last year and highlighted studies that had been going on for a while.

And of course another baby featured in the news this week.

This new-born baby now has a name – Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge – Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.  Most of us Smile at newborns 🙂


Thank you for all your thoughtful comments on the overheard conversation – the two offenders are not ‘real friends’ but members of a group I belong to.  I’d Nod and say Hello to them but not really have much in common so consequently didn’t talk to them much.  Don’t think it’s worth the effort to disclose what I heard but will be sure ‘to watch my back’ where they are concerned!!

Have you had much to smile about this week?

  1. I try to greet each morning with a smile. I may have aches & pains, but there are people out there with much worse to contend with.


  2. When you have chronic illness each day is a smile with gratitude no matter what nightmares lie ahead. Right now I am dealing with my one and only sibling having a brain tumor. We find out Friday whether she gets chemo but it is inoperable where it is at. Sad and I’m doing the best I can after all I have my 97 year old mother living with my husband and I. She knows my sister is in the hospital but we haven’t told her
    how sick she is. Life sure does not seem fair at times does it?


  3. Yes, lovely smiles you’ve shared with us Cathy.
    We too were so happy to learn about the baby and the elderly man being found in Nepal.

    Glad to read that the two women you referred to weren’t close friends of yours – I’d assumed they were. As you say, it’s not worth the effort of confronting them. But you’ve “got their number” now, so to speak.

    Cheers now, and keep smiling :D)
