Seven things making me smile this week.
1. Creme Eggs
It is stupidly early for Easter stuff to be appearing in shops. I know this. But I don’t care when it means that I can buy Creme Eggs again.
2. Working headphones
My old pair did that irritating thing where one headphone stops working. I think they’d one too many soakings in the Aberystwyth rain! My new ones have been delivered and I am greatly enjoying having a soundtrack for my wanderings.
3. Sue Sylvester
Glee is back, which makes me happy in itself, but it really is all about Sue and her amazing insults, isn’t it?
4. New Slippers
The soles came off my old ones. Now, it’s January. I still need slippers. But all the shops have stopped stocking them. WHY does the Spring/Summer stuff come in when it’s too cold to wear it? I don’t want sandals, I want slippers, damn it! I ended up buying some on Ebay. I love them. They’re beautiful and SO WARM.
5. Goldfish Funerals
One of the lads I work with spent his day grieving his goldfish who died last night. We whiled away several hours planning a tasteful funeral and wondering if Pets at Home stock mourning veils for occasions such as these.
6. Inappropriate Jokes
The ice machine at work broke today. One of the managers came in to fix it and calmly announced, “I’ve come to fix…” dramatic pause with suggestive eyebrows, “the plumbing.”
7. The return of MrKiss
His exams are over now, and I am very much loving having his company again.
