Lovely day out at Headingley, watching Joe Root get 121 at the 2nd day of the England v India Test Match.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

We're going to go and visit my sister in East Sussex (nr Uckfield) for lunch and a chin wag. We've been Zoom video calling on a regular basis but seeing someone in person is much nicer. We'll also see how the dog training is going.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Thanks for a misreading or something my son's application for accommodation at Uni went missing and the places available where much more expensive (Like £8.5k without meals compared to £5.5k with some meals).
This was discovered while we were on holiday so our day trip en-route home via Exeter instead of just a night at restaurant and look round became a search to see if anything cheaper and closer was available. Still nice night out at great Thai restaurant and the campus is better than the town centre (sorry Exeter). Now he's deferred his place a year so pressure is off, he can grow up a bit, earn some money and get a place in hall next year. Also possible things will not just lock down next year or less likely than this year.

Oh wow that is good news.

I lost one of mine on a day out many many years ago. We found it months later when the car was having a full valet prior to our wedding. It had managed to hide itself under the carpet!!! It was only a cheap pair but had a lot of sentimental value . Kept the singleton and the reunited pair are safely tucked up in my Memories Box.

Or gnomes, it's the Gnomes of Zurich I tell you. They like shiny expensive things.

In 2019 my niece lost a bit of her bracelet while on holiday, we searched the room but couldn't find it, a few weeks after we can home i stood on it on our carpet, and yet she nor her mum had been in our house.


I guess it was caught up in her clothing and dropped into stuff we took home.

I remember the story about a woman who lost a ring while gardening and several years later she was pulling up some carrots, only to find the ring around one.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

At 8pm tonight I'll be closing the lid on my laptop, and closing the door to my home office for two weeks. No overseas holiday this year though, SWMBO and i will be having daytrips and visiting family in Leeds

Well, that's the plan... No doubt I'll be getting emailed & slacked from about 10am on Monday morning.

Get a colleague to book at meeting from 1900 or 1800 if they can get away with it that you have to attend but doesn't really happen. Just to stop some silly person trying to book a real one in.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Since June, I've been going to a charity near me called The Men's Shed, it has helped me, recently I put a thing about it on my towns moaning page on facebook


Well to day some one who saw this came along and joined.


He is originally from Germany, and I said I've always wanted to ask a German this question "Have you heard of Fawlty Towers and have you seen the episode called The Germans" he laughed and said "Don't mention the War, I did once but think I got away with it"


I laughed and said I was always told this was never seen in Germany, but this is not true.
