Ten triffic things that happened to me today


Tuesday, September 25, 2012

I always think it's the small pleasures in life that are important. Here's my top ten for today, and only one of them involves eating empty calories. Time was when it would have been all ten:

1. I had half of last night's smoked fish pie left so I didn't have to get home and cook and wasn't tempted to go in the supermarket on the way home, which is always risky.
2. I wore my red shoes to work.
3. A colleague was telling me how he'd spent ages trying to get something sorted out at work and got nowhere and I told him that I and one of my colleagues could do what he needed and his face just lit up, making me feel interesting and useful.
4. I had a piece of chocolate fudge cake. Just one piece and it was a small piece and I could have eaten half the cake but didn't.
5. I got home from work at 6.30, about 90 minutes earlier than yesterday. More SparkTime!
6. I've had dinner and still have about 300 calories left for fruit!
7. I wore a pink blouse that I bought over a year ago for the first time - it was too tight before (yes I know I already mentioned this in my status but it's a big deal to me).
8. Small cat has just come in for a cuddle and big cat is curled up next to me.
9. I had a nice chat with a colleague I haven't spoken to in ages.
10. This is cheating cos it hasn't happened yet but I'm having a long long soak in the bath tonight. Manicure, pedicure, wash hair, shave legs, paint toenails.

    And painting your toenails will be easier than before as there is less "bellyfat" to overcome!

    It is wonderful that you count the small things for making your day a good one! I like that. I should try that. Had to be the red shoes and pink blouse.:) Got a question--what is fish pie?
Thank you also for the message on my loss this weekend. That was very nice of you.
(hugs)

    sometimes the small things are more important than the big ones. The small ones are our everyday lives and without them, how would we hang in long enough to get to the big ones...
I love the idea of red shoes and rediscovering "new" clothes is so rewarding.

    Wonderful way to look back on your day. I might try to set this idea as one of my daily goals. Makes one have a whole new outlook on life.

It's always a victory when you can make a list like that! Ah, a list of guilty pleasures and found treasures! Wish my day was going that well. Congratulations on the pink shirt. I love being able to find "new clothes" in my closet.

    Being thankful for good things that happen usually is an American habit, not something us Brits get involved in, but it's caught on with me and I am way more positive.
Looks like you're catching the bug too emoticon emoticon

    ooH! My turn!
1. I made too much food for dinner last night, so half of it came to work with me today.
2. Last week I lost a door prize, and today in the mail came two tickets to a movie to replace my lost prize!
3. I have enough time to go make another cup of tea to take with me to climbing.
4. I have a friend meeting me to climb after work.
5. My nerd games have not been cancelled for this evening, despite some people not being able to make it.
6. I was productive at work today -- and even though I got peeved at a coworker who rendered some of my work irrelevant, I got much more done.
7. I finished a book which makes me smile.
8. My phone seems to be working better than it has been.
9. Yesterday I got two beautiful new Lulu tops without breaking the bank, and I get to wear one to climb tonight.
10. I managed to only eat half of the delicious chocolate bar that was sitting at my desk!

    Wonderful!!! Good things happen to us every day, but we don't always recognize some of the little things that can make us sooooo happy! Enjoy your "beauty bath" time! emoticon
