- Small things that put you in a good mood
Nice ride to work
taking my commute shoes off and standing on a warm towel in the shower room at work. Mmm toasty.
sorry, having difficulty coming up with none workday stuff, waking up naturally* next to the mrs? possibly, dunno not sure this has happened since kids.
Cliche I know but seeing my children on a morning or after work,
depends whether they see me and come running to me shouting “DADDYYYYYY!” or as last night, turning and seeing me then turning back round to what they were doing without letting on 😥

Emma Thompson’s smile.
Definitely riding to work. On Mondays, I take the car so I can carry my supply of shirts and trousers for the week. I hate driving.
Waking up on a Tuesday to four bike commutes makes me smile. And as DezB says – that smugness when your neighbours are scraping furiously. I do like that.Posted 4 years agopondoMember
Putting warm layers on when you get back to the car after a ride in the cold.
And with specific regard to last night, Mrs Pondo receiving a text alert when we bumped shoulders. So I did it again, and she got another text alert. So I did it again, and she got a third – I decided discretion was the better part of valour and left it at three. You couldn’t make a film about it, but it made us smile. 🙂Posted 4 years agoRo5eyMember
Well getting new job this morn has put me in a wonderful mood, thank you very much.
Not a small thing I know… but when you’ve sat next to the the same fella for 13+ years and for most of those he’s driven round the bend… the sheer relief I’m feeling right now that I will not have to put up with his nonsense is quite some thing.
You know when sportsman say “It’s not sunk in yet” that’s how it feels… I know something good has happened but it’s not unbridled joy just deep deep seated relief…. peace even??
Other than that “small” matter …. any kind of little snooze/doze/power nap is always welcome.Posted 4 years agojohndohMember
The kids being happy and doing as they are asked first time.
Or, as happened this morning, I went into their room to see if they were dressed for school but couldn’t find them. So I traipsed around the house and they were nowhere to be seen. Eventually I went back into the room and still no sign. Then I spotted a bum poking up in the air – there they were, quietly hiding, waiting to be ‘found’. So cute I couldn’t get angry at them still being in the PJs 5 minutes before they had to leave for school…Posted 4 years ago
