dust.gif If you've got some good news and you don't particularly want to start a thread about it, or if you just feel happy today, let's hear it! biggrin.gif


I feel happy today because I saw the first pink cherry blossom in flower and Spring is in the air! hurrah.gif

It's now noticeably later in the day that it becomes really dark. biggrin.gif

I think I suffer (but probably only in a minor way) from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and it's amazing what a difference a longer bit of daylight can make.

niceThread.gif Count your blessings, I say! Today is good because my son had an A2 Chemistry module (a bit of a scary one for him) this morning and thinks it went well - hooray! Also, it's not raining, so my imminent visit to the council rubbish tip will be drier than I feared! biggrin.gif

I think I do too, and I agree. Several of my pupils are commenting too ' oh - it was dark when I went home last week and today it's not quite dark " : )

I just got back from town with new glasses - the first I've had for 5 years smile.gif

My eyesight is twice as bad now... but I got nice new frames that don't show up the half inch thick lens, or the "giant eye" so much wacko.gif

I had a really good, fun driving lesson. In French we watched Alvin and the Chipmunks, and later I'm going to my musical theatre group. Also, I went into town with a couple of friends and had a nice chat 3rd period today, which was nice.

The sun and blue sky smile.gif

My friends making an effort to cheer me up because they knew I was a bit blue yesterday...

The fact that the above worked and I was happy despite some people trying there best to get me down... or so it seemed... well it made me more happy, and I was in fact in a very good mood by the time I went home smile.gif
