What made you happy today?

Congratulations mate, although the words 'weight', 'punching', 'above', and 'your', all spring to mind although not necessarily in that order..😉

After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

My Dad came through his open-heart surgery successfully.

Today I found a task  that's almost as enjoyable as re-shimming a 9xx head (I'm sure some such as @Sparky will know how relaxing that can be). Re-pinning a door lock (Euro cylinder to be precise). Even dropping the little bits once in a while didn't cause stress, it's weird that these sort of jobs can be so relaxing.

Finally used the last supermarket brand tea bag I received as a substitution in a food delivery shop during lockdown, so my next cup of tea in the morning will be a proper pyramid PG tips cuppa. :)

We could start a "tea war" here but I do like the Yorkshire blend.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I like Yorkshire Tea @C8RKH, but that is best when actually in Yorkshire, which unfortunately didn't happen (although given COVID and resulting job situation for the boys had we gone that way I think the whole move would have been off anyway). Lower Bourne is proving a very nice alternative.

Just taking my first sip of PG Tips, yum :yes:

Dad do you know the piano is on my foot?

I'm on my second pot already!  I think we're on Tetley right now lol...

I don't know how you can drink tea down south with that scummy water!  I only drink Coffee when I travel south of Stoke as the water is that shite around the home counties.

Scummy you say, it must have been "filtered" through a dozen people already :P

Yes, and each and every one of those dozen human filters had contributed to the floaters in the cup!   Yuck!

I read a recent article on the perfect cup of coffee and (the same as brewing beer), the harder the water the better.

This didn't make me happy today but it did a couple of days ago, I've just been a bit busy since. 🙂

I had a surprise visit in the form of a TLF Courier delivering parts and tools. Here is one in action...

and here's some of what it pulled out...

soon to be replaced by some shiny new ones from Westwood ones after the block has been given a proper once over and clean. 🙂

Thanks @Bibs for such great service.

cheers

There are some perks to the M25... not many. Still had some fun where I could, but my god that was a tedious 4 hours of driving!

Silver lining I guess is the thirsty girl isn't that thirsty if you whack on some tunes and cruise control!

What made me happy (yesterday) finding the fix to no cruise control on the Evora was as simple as crawling under the dash and re connecting the potentiometer getting rid of the 30s spanner light  ... Quickly followed by what made me sad 2 new orange lights , tyre pressure warning caused by a nail in the tyre and the MIL caused by what appears to be an oxygen sensor fail !!!

I think I should start a new thread - What made you proud today!

I am very proud of my 8 year old granddaughter Betsy. On her own she read an article about children who have cancer and lose their hair and have to get a wig. So she decided she wanted to give her own hair to the charity  that supports and makes wigs for children. Her mother wasn't too  keen but Betsy insisted. 

Im very proud of her and feel very happy. If anyone would like to donate, underneath are some details. MODERATORS. If this isnt allowed please just remove it. Many thanks.

Story

For those of you that know Betsy, you will know how much she loves her long hair. So for her to decide that she wants to donate it to someone who isn’t as lucky as she is, has made us immensely proud! 

It costs over £550 for The Little Princess Trust to donate a wig free of charge. We would love to be able to send as much money as we can, along with Betsy’s hair, to help provide a little girl with something that she should never have had to lose in the first place. 

Please donate as much as you can, it would mean the world to Betsy.  

When a child loses their hair to cancer or another condition, we'll be there with a free, real hair wig to help restore their confidence and identity. We won't stop until the research that we fund ends childhood cancer forever. Promise.Please visit us at www.littleprincesses.org.uk to find out how you can help us give young people back what cancer takes away.The Trust relies solely on the efforts of enthusiastic community fundraisers. We receive no formal funding. Please help to raise money for us so that we can help more families.

Finally managed to have an emergency dentist's appointment today having had an appointment cancelled in the week before lockdown, and having an on-off toothache from a week after lockdown.

I did phone 111 as advised in May, spent half an hour on the phone. The advice given was, you need to see a dentist.... No shit sherlock.

Anyhow, had a cracked tooth that had split in half vertically, and I don't have the tooth ache anymore - see the "What made you Unhappy" thread.

Been using my Lotus as my daily driver for 3 days now. My new Car arrives in the morning. Not sure I should have bothered as the Evora is such a lovely drivers car.........though my license may not last too long if I keep using it!

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.
