- What one thing made you smile the most this week?
Just a little thing, walking across campus and smelling the trees… Everything’s waking up, I’m not really a fan of spring- bloomin weeds everywhere! but some days, you can’t help it. You know when the smile comes, but there’s a whole massive rush of emotions and thoughts that comes along right behind it? That.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
Ran 10k on Monday. Two teenage girls ran the other way, maybe 13 years old. We all did opposite loops and then they ran out in front of me running the same way. Both of them sped gazelle-like away from me while chatting away happily and quickly left me stood. I ran after them sweating like a pig and really, really struggling to do the same pace.
A bloke walking his dog saw this and nearly weed his pants laughing at how slow and shit I was. And just to point out, I can do a 50 minute 10k.Posted 4 years agorascalMember
My cousin turned up quite unexpectedly Fri evening to take me for a few jars at his local.Posted 4 years ago
He drove over in his Porsche 997 GT3…a trip down a few dual carriageways, a 10 mile section of M4 and a few very quickly taken roundabouts had my head pinned back on the headrest and grinning like an idiot. Quite incredible really. It was a little like a dream fulfilled as I had a poster of a 911 on my bedroom wall 30 years ago…I think I would kill myself if I had one though!arrpeeMember
A work colleague, a fit, pretty girl in her mid-20s, related a recent instance of being oggled at the gym by a member of staff whilst doing squats. And his cunning ruse to remain inconspicuous as he drooled over her reflection in the mirror? Absently hoovering a lone kettlebell.Posted 4 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Whenever someone cracks something for the first time. Whether it’s riding a bike, finding the balance point on a handstand, working out how fractions work…. when I see someone have that lightbulb moment it always makes me smile.
This week it was my youngest daughter at basketball. They’ve got a couple of really good coaches but where she’s only just 8 and in with the miniballers, they don’t do much advanced stuff. However due to start of school hold a few kids were away this week, so she got a bit of 1:1 time with a coach teaching her the footwork and backboard angles for lay-ups. After a few mins the aha! moment arrived, and she’s now shooting lay-ups like a pro. Albeit a pro that’s 2 1/2 feet shorter than your typical pro 🙂Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
On the advice of the women in the pet shop we got our cats from, we’ve just bought them a laser pen. Hours of fun! This morning the girls were on the sofa in their oneseys, having a great old time getting the cats pouncing on, and chasing the red dot on the carpet around the room. The cats were having a right old time of it too. Simple things 🙂Posted 4 years agoracefaceec90Member
using my volume pedal option on my boss ME-25 for the first time (guitar).
just addicted to it now (can do those violin swells you hear in classic albums now).
seriously if you select a high gain amp mode you just need one note then the magic of the pedal makes you sound bloody awesome 8)
am going to do a video of my volume pedal/numpty noodlings as proof of it’s magic (just need to buy a silk kimono now/and a long hair wig 😉Posted 4 years agorob jacksonMember
Being chased around the changing cubicle at swimming by my 4 year old daughter shouting “i want to grab your thingy – come here” and then in swimming deciding that she could swim and jumping off the float and doing 2 widths back to back!! Previously she managed 2 lanes!Posted 4 years agocodybrennanMember
I did a wee 7 mile run with my mate yesterday from Lundavra to Fort William along the WHW (on foot, not by bike). Unfortunately, at some point he seems to have lost his Oakleys. So, while he was running the Lochaber Marathon today, I nipped back up to Lundavra with my 7 year old girl to have a wee walk along and see if we could see them.
We didn’t. We walked for about 20 mins in, then back, and it rained and blustered. But she’s such ace company, a right bright wee thing, kind hearted and bonny, and after the week or so I’ve been having at work it was great just to hang out with someone so full of enthusiasm.Posted 4 years ago
