We don't have Donald Trump in charge of our country!

Right now, that'll do for me!

I realise that not pruning the eye brows doesn't cause a problem

I have a big Ocado order coming tomorrow - which is always cheering, particularly as supplies are lowish and rain is forecast for the coming days!

My Kindle is packed with books that I'm really looking forward to reading and I'm getting through them as fast as I can! Then I'm sorry I've finished one but can hardly choose which to read next. I'm spoilt for choice.

No guests arriving any time soon, so no need to put on glasses just so I can see the dust. 🙂
It rained last night (well, we did need it) and dh, good boy, remembered to put my sunbed and the chair cushions away.

Well this is not to brag, but I really feel cheerful that
1. My elderly brothers and sisters and their spouses are all well, no coughs or fever
2. My DD’s and their husbands are healthy and in full employment (not furloughed) so no anxiety about if they will manage the crisis financially
3. My DH is fit and able to go out to shop, chemist, vet when necessary although I am not going out (chronic asthmatic).
So I feel I’ve many reasons to smile 😃. And I thank God for that.
I’m not smug and I have much compassion for others who are suffering and read/watch/think about them every day.

And I have a nice bottle of rhubarb gin I’m looking forward to opening at the weekend!

I bought OH a turntable ( record player) for his birthday yesterday and we are enjoying playing all our LPs from the attic.
I got a delivery slot for next two weekends.

May7 I found it puzzling when doing my on line supermarket shop that I could only have 2 single cans of ready mixed gin and tonic, not allowed 3. But I could have 2 multipacks of 10.
Yes I’m a lush too 😉

Phoenix also didn’t something fall off that made you cheerful ?

Heard my first cuckoo of the season yesterday.
I have a pack of pineapple Jaffa Cakes calling to me from the kitchen, never tried them before.

I'm glad that:

all my family are well
Him Indoors is getting his 80% furloughed wage
I'm back to work tomorrow

grandMattie Tue 28-Apr-20 18:54:54

I’m cheerful because:-
We’re all well, employed and housed
We’re not short of food,
I seem to have found my mojo (thought it might be furloughed again)
