We all need a laugh..

Following on from our “What Made You Smile Today?” article from last week, a true story that will surely bring a smile to your face.

We all know the trials and tribulations of trying to do an online shop at the moment and all appreciate the logistical nightmare that everyone trying to book slots, do their shopping and shortages must be causing the supermarkets during these completely unprecedented times.

We did manage to get a booking slot and have been adding items. As fast as we do, then they get dropped off the list. Sometimes products are offered as replacements. Our story is one such swap. During the time of lockdown it has given us an opportunity to try and do things that we haven’t had time to do before. One such thing that we have been determined to do is make a carrot cake.

Looking at the recipe we needed Bicarbonate of Soda and ordered the Dr Oetker variety. A few days later when we logged on to check if everything was still available we noticed that the Bicarbonate of Soda was no longer available and they were offering a replacement item. Yes, it was still Dr Oetker but not what we wanted, the item they were suggesting for a swap was Dr Oetker 18 party candles!!! Interesting swap and not sure what the carrot cake would taste like!!!!

What has made you smile today?

With all the doom and gloom that is around us we thought we would turn everything on its head and we would look at the things that have made us smile today.

The tulips in our featured post were from bulbs that Dad gave me shortly before he died. Today they have burst into flowers and that certainly made me smile.

I think the current situation should make us appreciate all the things that we do have, that normally we wouldn’t even notice. How much blossom there is on a tree, the feel of the sun on your face. There are just so many things that we all take for granted and in this time we should all try and find at least one thing each day that has made you or someone else smile.
