Positive Thread of Happiness :)

It’s tough at this time of year for many reasons, long nights, social pressure, complicated family etc so let’s take a moment to list out some things that are great in our lives or the world in general.

I know this is not an original concept for a thread and it’s not intended to diminish real sadness and problems many are facing so apologies on both of those fronts.

  • My dodgy stomach is getting better, thought I was in for a looong cold but I’ve dodged it more or less.

  • Lovely DiS responses to my “art” is a source of strength for me right now as I am doubting myself.

  • Stevie Wonder is great

Can you help me find some positives too? :slight_smile: x

what are some great albums? I find it really hard to discover new music, feels so intimidating

Pandas are great, don’t give a fuck, can’t be arsed to mate, can’t be arsed to eat anything other than their favourite food and just dick about the whole time. GBOL.

My boss just handed me an unwrapped 4 pack of cider and mumbled, “merry christmas mate” just before leaving on his xmas break. Cheered me right up that did. Love that guy.

It’s my last day of work before Christmas! And tomorrow morning at about 7am, this one will pile into our bed in her dragon onesie, closely followed by her sister, and we’ll sit up in bed AND NOT GO TO SCHOOL / WORK :slight_smile:

My youngest niece has this amazing really unaffected goofy belly laugh that is so infectious, I don’t normally laugh much but it always sets me off

Our daughters were doing a joint reading at a carol service on Sunday. The youngest got the giggles during her bit and set the eldest off, which set the whole congregation off :smiley: they pulled it together afterwards, but it was very cute :slight_smile:

Just found out that the vending machine at work still accepts old pound coins.
I’m a very happy man, obviously.
