miss_s_b: Peter Falk as Columbo saying "just one more thing" (Mood: And another thing)
This weekend has been a bit weird. Aside from the major Up of the Cheeky Girls Birthday Bash last night (which was an absolute riot, and I haven't enjoyed myself at work so much for ages) there have been various struggles and crises and injuries and general downery things which have all conspired to make me want to curl up in a ball and cry. However, I am not giving in. There follows, therefore, a list of lovely things which have made me smile today:
  • Miss Holly, who does the bestest hugs
  • Charlie Brooker, who really ought not to read Andrew Hickey's latest post in case his brain implodes.
  • My daddy, who can do more with a couple of carefully placed words in an email than most people can with a tome
  • Will Howells' lyrical genius
  • The Twin Dilemma coming out on DVD tomorrow - props to Daddy Alex for the news - with a Special Feature called Stripped for Action - The Sixth Doctor fnarr fnarr
  • And, as always, my lovely [personal profile] matgb, who is my rock, and who is making popcorn for us to watch Blake's 7 with. I'd be a lot crazier if it weren't for him ♥ Sometimes I look back to old blog posts before I knew him. Gods, I was miserable. And, no matter what my current financial tribulations... Well, I'd rather be poor and happy than rich and miserable. Neither of us is any good with money, and I don't think either of us ever will be, but we have each other, and we have our friends, and that's worth more than any amount of money. Of course, given the choice, I'd have both... ;)

Today is shaping up to be quite a nice day.

Holly is safely at school, the dogs are walked, and Mat and I went back to bed for the morning. We are currently snuggled up in lazy mode. At some point I have to get up and do some gardening and DIY and cleaning and things, and I also have to parcel up stuff that got sold on eBay and take it to the post office. But not just yet. Right now, laid here with the dogs at my feet and Mat by my side (reading his recipe book that he got from his sister for his birthday) I am very content.

Contentment is to be savoured, I feel.

Watch this seven second clip from BBC News (link here). I defy you not to laugh. And then remember the importance of punctuation.

Selected reading list for the punctuation-impaired (not all of which are by Lynne Truss ;)):((edited for the inevitable spelling mistake in an entry like this LOL))
