There’s so much unhappiness in the world at the moment there are times when I feel guilty about how I feel, I know I shouldn’t be – but honestly I can’t help it – because it ireally doesn’t take much to make me feel HAPPY
Now I’m not much of a tv watcher – yes there’s some news & current affairs type things we keep a eye on – but I mean to say there’s only so much hilltop horse riding you can watch, so many railway journeys be taken, murders in quaint rural villages, tropical islands or even scottish islands for that matter that I can help solve.
Utopia – my saving grace from the misery of free to air tv finishes next week – so when I heard the news that Dr Blake Mysteries is returning very soon there was happy silent cheering going on inside my aged brain. Quickly silenced by the realisation it was to be the last series on our ABC. Looks like I’m going to be doing lots of reading and knitting and maybe watching older stuff I do/did like on iview or other apps😊
Sunny days in winter make me happy (needed or not there’s only so much rain you can take!) so when mother nature smiled and fleetingly raised the temperature for us one day last week I even lifted one of the blinds to enjoy the sight of all those Camelias (whose name has been forgotten over the years ). From just one bloom on sunny but very cold day a couple of weeks ago,
the bush has decided it is now time to burst into flower. And look at Kiera, so happy to lay on the chair enjoying the warmish first day of Spring. She was like an old lady as she shifted around trying to warm up her bones 😊
Just as an aside the blinds are definitely down today; the skies are grey, the heater’s on indoors – and wait for it – there was snow in the nearby hills over the past couple of days 😊
Now just for the fun of it I’ll show you something else that made me happy last week. Not overjoyed with happiness but it did put a smile on my face
Some call it the curse of the suburbs, hanging out of letter boxes or lying on the ground where the delivery person has dumped it. The stuff you casually drop into the recycling bin as you pass by. Strange to feel happy about receiving it.
For some reason we have had none delivered in our suburb for well over a year, no local newspaper either. Then all of a sudden with no warning (well, who ever gets warning of junk mail?) it was there. Rolled up tightly in a rubber band. I dislike shopping but I do like to see what’s available and what’s on special. Not that I’ll buy any of it, it’s just nice to be in the know 😊
I did wonder if it being Father’s Day was the reason for it being delivered but that wouldn’t be it – would it??
