    I was encouraged to do this years ago from some coach... I didn't take it too serious, but maybe it's worth a try...

    The idea is to write down something that made you smile during the day... even the smallest, silliest things


    Today I smiled because since I was little I have wanted a feather pen... and today I bought one!

    I was going to get Chinese too, then found spuds in the garage ans had those instead.
    Today I smiled because I talked to my brother in the phone. He's in another country so we get to meet rarely.
    It's his b-day and the wife is minding the children while he's having drinks with his mates. I bet he's enjoying every minute of it.
    It made me smile and I miss them a bit.

    Oooh Chinese, I could eat that!

    I'm smiling because my mum just texted me and told me that the Birthday present she has ordered for me arrived in the mail today... (it's a Sherlock DVD I pre-ordered in august, was released January 11th, and got lost in the mail... I was actually heartbroken). So I'm actually happy she told me, then I don't have to worry and stress if I actually ever get hold of that DVD!

    Aw Petal that made me smile too!
    I personally don't like hugs... but even I know that some hugs from the right person can mean everything!

    The right song winning the Danish selection for the Eurovision Song Contest!

    If we win this year I get a chance to apply for work there again next year. YAY!

    Seeing how much my nephew enjoyed his birthday party. It is officially tomorrow, but we had it today. it was cute how much he was smiling and he got all shy when we sang him the birthday song, lol. Then when he had to leave, he was just laying on the floor. He wasn't having a fit, he was just laughing the whole time and he didn't want to go, haha.

    A man at a train station on my way home... there was a kid sitting behind me and he was running around the platform acting crazy waving goodbye to the child. The kid laughed so much, and I couldn't stop smiling. For a moment I imagined seeing my boyfriend like that, in the future... with our child... gosh he'll make a good father.

    Oh, and I just had a chuckle too... re my boyfriend.

    A song called 'Sally' by Hardwell just started playing... last year my boyfriend sent it to me, told me he loved to run to that at the time, because it had an awesome fast beat and loud bass...
    At the time it wasn't funny... he has sent me so many songs over these 18 months, and all of them has a meaning about me or us as a couple... (he is recovering from aphasia and has brain damage, so he has always used music to express himself...) the lyrics go something like "No one can find out that I've been ¤/(%¤/ Sally". Imagine me going "WHO THE HELL IS SALLY???"

    Turns out there was no Sally... I am giggling about how silly that was... I guess that happens when you love someone who lives exactly 1000 km away.

    I was standing outside having a smoke in my shorts and tshirt. It was a little chilly but not that much more than the rest of the week. I moved to the back of the garden and felt something land on my head. I looked around and saw white blobs falling around me. For a moment I thought a flock of bird's were out to get me, but it turned out to be snow. Not something I was expecting, but I was thankful it was snow, rather than the alternative. Unfortunately it didn't settle, it only snowed a few minutes. So yeah, that made me chuckle for a bit today :D

    p.s. Really nice idea for a thread. Thank you for making it.

    Aw, I LOVE snow! For some reason it almost always snows on my Birthday, I hope it will this year too!

    I smiled all through my 'cam date' with my LDR boyfriend tonight. We had so much fun and I made the lamest of jokes... I sleep with a Hello Kitty pillow... and just before he had to sign out I showed him that and told him "Now you can tell your friends you got to see my Kitty".
