Having a Happy Day all good in my world today. Had a walk on the beach, sun's shining, family all OK, having a couple of drinks. Not always so, so making the most of feeling happy.

How about you? They do say you are only as happy as your happiest child.

It's beautiful weather, had all 3 granddaughters all day yesterday, and the 2 eldest today. Nice couple of days out. Both sons and their girlfriends are happy, and everyone is healthy at the moment.

My DH had thyroid surgery yesterday and we were told today that the nodules are not cancerous! Walking on air!

I’ve just made plans to go visit my sister in Wales who I’ve not seen for 6/7 yrs. Sat in the garden enjoying the lovely day. Feeling good.

So nice to hear people are having happy days - hope you all have lots more of them.

Sun shining, family all well and happy, favourite rose bush heavy with beautiful roses, house almost sold, found a lovely flat in a nice village and Orlin making my favourite dinner. I know and appreciate that I’m very lucky.
Good news Ashcombe, my best to Olddudders.

I've had a most successful/enjoyable day in the garden rounded off with a very overdue visit to my hairdresser. Now we're both looking trim and tidy which is a great feeling.

That’s great news Ashcombe you must feel like a huge weight off your shoulders.

After a good night's sleep, tea and a biscuit in bed, read a good book for an hour. No health niggles today. Food shop and have lots of fresh good food in the house.

Pottered around in the garden, dead heading, pruning in a T shirt and shorts. Watched a bit of TV, did some knitting, went online - had a message from a friend.

No appointments, no irritating e mails, texts or phone calls. Family all ok. Delicious evening meal. Will go for a walk when it's cool. More of my book and a good tv prog later.

Yes, a very, very ordinary day. But I take nothing for granted and appreciate every day like this. Peace and good health is precious. I hope many others had a happy day too.

Great news, Ashcombe.

Cooking supper using vegetables grown on the allotment always puts a smile on my face.

Good news ashcombe. All good in the world. X

Harris27 Tue 05-Sep-23 19:07:01

Like your style bluebird243 that’s my kind of day.

I can imagine your delight Ashcombe and I’m delighted for you both. Relief all round after fearing the worst.

Wonderful news Ashcombe.

Marvellous news Ashcombe, has he been discharged yet?

cornergran Tue 05-Sep-23 20:54:03

Excellent news ash

Good, happy, day here too. We ventured out to the sea front late afternoon . Mr C’s first proper outing since he collapsed with severe atrial fibrillation on Friday. I swallowed my anxiety, Mr C loved it, we enjoyed a (very) short walk then we both sat in the sunshine with a cuppa, so pleased and happy with our little outing.

Wonderful news Ash, so pleased for you both. Cornerstone, wonderful day for you too. My day was made a good one by a lift in my mood and seeing friends.

Great news Ash.

My granddaughter asked to come to my place ('She'd come every day if she had the chance,' said her mum) and we played indoor tennis with balls of wool and pieces of cardboard instead of bats. We giggled and giggled. I had managed to mend my leg brace so I was in much less pain than usual. It was an unplanned, glorious, lovely day, like a holiday.

How nice to hear of everyone's good day.

We have a drizzly day, but I'm happy to have rain when the forests needed it. Had a slice of plum cake at lunchtime, made yesterday, and DH has packaged up slices for me to bring around to the kids and families.

Gchildren will have had their first day at school, so I will hear how it all went. I enjoy the excitement of back to school.
