I'm H.A.P.P.Y.



Some days nothing goes right; on others it's the opposite.

On Monday I was in the depths of depression, but yesterday everything came right.

The wretched broken oven was collected and taken away, and (unbelievably) the very same truck delivered the tree that I'd ordered (above). 

All in all, yesterday was a very GOOD day.

We even opened a bottle of Champagne to celebrate the fact.

  2. I can tell by the bonne humeur you must have unwrapped the tree and found it to be in order before you cracked the champagne!

  4. A glass of champaign for the palm tree that's great. Hope the tree will feel fine in your region (isn't it too cold in winter)?

  5. Good to recognise the positives.
    I'm impressed with the same truck being used to collect and deliver at the same time. How often does that happen?
