The happy thread

Post by Staffylover »

If you are happy or grateful for something please post it here

I am grateful that I can still walk my dog, that the sun is shining and most of all for people like my cousin who works for the NHS and is truly in the front line at a time like this

As it happens I have a week of pre booked leave mostly ear marked for the new tank so that was lucky, anyway thought we could do with some feel good pictures so while I am off will try to post a 'happy' picture on this thread every day

Will start with this handsome chap who was on my front lawn yesterday morning :)

What a lovely idea @Staffylover :)

Gosh I have a lot I am grateful for. Although myself and my OH have some serious health problems, we have each other to keep company and we share a similar sense of humour, so our days always include having a laugh :D

Our house feels like it is falling apart sometimes, lol but it is ours and we feel very fortunate to have a secure roof over ours and our cats and fishes heads.

Also I am grateful and happy we both have a shared passion and love for animals. They bring a joy and purpose to my life everyday. Owning pets is very rewarding and has a feel good factor when you feel you are providing them with a loving home. Our two cats are semi feral rescues. Neither are capable of going outside, they have bonded to us in a way I have never experienced before. Our house has given them a safe home to call their own that they desperately needed :)

My world isn't very big, so I am grateful for the internet and forums like here.

Yes I feel blessed most days :)

I just wrote a whole reply and added a picture and it all vanished.

Grateful to have a job that I can do from home. Incredibly grateful to be well and that my family are also well (barring my sister who has a long-term diagnosis). She is on lockdown and not allowed out at all though :(

Grateful to have my cats with me.

Grateful to have been out in the sunshine today on my daily allowance of exercise, it was lovely in the sun :)

Well on the happy side, our garden has spring into life a lot in the last week, and I've been particularly pleased to see a fuchsia that has pink and white blooms (sorry don't know its name) has doubled in size this year already looking forward to see it come out. :) I'll post pictures later.

...later :grin: Pictures! ...when this fuchsia comes into bloom I'll up load some pictures.

Image

This shrub below blooms early February and this year it has had twice the amount of flowers than normal, looked magnificent, should of taken some images either.

Image Image

Anyone know the name of this 'triffid' please let me know. :]

STAFFY, He can join "Hoppy" our almost tame Pheasant. We found him on the local moors. He had been shot and lost a leg. So much for the "sportmen" who pay hundreds of thousands of £s to kiil these beautiful birds, during the "Season"!. They just left him to die in pain.
