I hung out the washing this morning and a shiny 10p fell to the ground. Don't know if it was new but it certainly was clean.

They weren't my clothes I was hanging out, but I thought, 'Ooh, I'm having that'.
Planning to invest it wisely and who knows, this time next year we could be millionaires.
reading your post in the 'serendipity' topic this morning :)
The electrics/lights on my caravan worked - after being left 2 years. I did more than smile!!
When we came home this eve and I admired our front grass, (which I finally got to mow this afternoon.)

Listening to Barry the 'Blue Badge biscuit' nutter!! :lol: :lol: :woohoo:
This joke...
A pretty little girl named Suzy was sitting on the pavement in front of her home. Next to her was a basket containing a number of tiny creatures; in her hand was a sign announcing FREE KITTENS.
Suddenly a line of big cars pulled up beside her.

Out of the lead car stepped a grinning man. "Hi there little girl, I'm Alistair Darling and this is Johann Lamont. What do you have in the basket?" he asked.

"Kittens," little Suzy said.
"How old are they?" asked Darling
Suzy replied, "They're so young, their eyes aren't even open yet."
"And what kind of kittens are they?"
"NO supporters," answered Suzy with a sweet smile.
He was thrilled, a golden opportunity beckoned.

As soon as he returned to his car, he called his PR chief and told him about the little girl and the kittens. Recognizing the perfect photo op, the three of them agreed that they should return the next day; and in front of the assembled media, have the girl talk about her discerning kittens.

So the next day, Suzy was again on the pavement with her basket of "FREE KITTENS," when Darling's motorcade pulled up, this time followed by vans from BBC, ITV, Channels 4/5, CNN and Sky News,
Darling and audio equipment were quickly set up, then he got out of his limo and walked over to little Suzy.

"Hello, again," he said, "I'd love it if you would tell all my friends out there what kind of kittens you're giving away."

"Yes sir," Suzy said. "They're YES supporters."

Taken by surprise, he stammered, "But...but...yesterday, you told me they were NO SUPPORTERS."

Little Suzy smiled and said, "I know.
But today, they have their eyes open."
Getting my boy back and having him talk my ears off for what feels like hours. :)
Last night I nodded off in front of the telly. I thought I'd got an ice lolly (those nice mini Magnum sorts from Aldi) from the freezer. In a semi-lucid state I thought 'I must have nodded off with the lolly in my hand! Where is it? I haven't dropped it. Have I? No it's here somewhere.'

I woke up properly when I realised I was nibbling my fingers, thinking there was a lolly there. Pillock! :P

Of course there was only one thing left to do. Get a lolly from the freezer and try to stay awake. B)
So upset, worried yesterday I'd lost a cheque made out to mum. Looked high and low and rang bank to stop it and issue another. Fortunately they couldn't verify me over phone and before writing letter I decided to have another search. As a last resort I looked in bag awaiting shredding. There it was-but not on top! So relieved-brought stress levels down and a little smile to my face-no recollection of putting it there -what an idiot! That was a safe place to hide it!
