I am cheerful because I just heard a great song by Ian Dury. How have I never heard of this guy before?!

Love this
I am cheerful because I have a great night planned tonight, watching silly awards show and eating my favourite dinner with my favourite person, no alcohol included!

Also because I've not had a cheese and pickle sandwich since childhood and was just reminded how good an idea that is, and that I have all ingredients for once so I can make it! (I never did food shopping when drinking, I lived off apples and tuna, so this is a miracle!)

Cheese humbles us all

I'm happy because my youngest daughter paid me a visit (even if it was on her way to somewhere else)

I am cheerful because we finally got a day warm enough to walk the dogs! So I walked them twice!

Congrats Franky on a precious Day 2, Here we all are right here with you!

We could be alone and feeling quite blue, but now we're together in a bit of a zoo.

Lets be cheerful cuz we got what we got, at least it's more than we might have thought.

We have some numbers, some folks to call, and if that ain't all, a sweet bun we bought.

You may as well be cheerful with me, all the night through

Cuz you could end up with worse, and that's really true.

I'm cheerful because my mind is firing at its normal speed which feels amazing to me. I can actually converse in an intelligent manner again and my confidence is higher because of it.

I too have pickles and cheese.. but no sandwich bread. Am making ham, salami, cheese and giardiniera rolls for work though... also turkey cranberry and cheese rolls. Mmmm saving money...

I have a few ongoing pain issues right now but they don't stop me from doing stuff.
I'm alive, I'm productive, and my life is good.

...and I bought some cheddar infused with pickled onions

I saw the most amazing sunset tonight - something I haven't witnessed on a Sunday night in I can't tell you how long. It was breath taking.

day 5 and I know I'll reach day 6!! Can't wait for the next view.
