Laughter is indeed  contagious 8)

A little girl asks her mother the meaning of contagious.

"It means something that never gets done unless you do it yourself."

"Can you give me an example, Mum?"

"Yes. . .  Never bother asking your father to do anything you want done in a hurry, it always take the c**t ages."





My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

I'm happy because my novel, 'The Woodcutter's Son', has had its first review on Amazon. Woo, and also hoo!

I'm happy because yesterday I completed my 'Wellness Recovery Action Plan' (WRAP) eight week course.

I'm happy I received a much-needed and timely tax rebate.

I'm happy because I choose to be.  ;)

Congratulations!

I'm happy because after months of CV's, application forms and wearing a 'hire-me' smile that hurt my jaw, I've finally heard back from a job.

Now to fill in the nine page form for the second stage and hope I get the interview.

Also happy cause if I get this job I'll have time to write and play on MWC too.

Fingers crossed.

Well done to both of you, specially well done to mousy(if I may?) for her WRAP, I have no idea what it is, but if you had to endure an eight week course and pass, then you must have earned it! A book getting its first review, lets hope they like it. Frog, you were in the same boat as myself, except you've now passed into the heightened state of job-ness! I'm jel, but at the same time happy for you(secretly, behind your back plot on where to throw the Dagger! laf)
I'm happy for the two of you's so in a way, thats the reason for me being happy! Thanks. bri.
(looks round in a severe depressed state and looks for a length of rope, a decent tree branch, a knife, a gun, pills, a plastic bag, [two cos tesco bags are soooo unreliable!] unplugs plug lick fingers and insert!) Am bringin the over-used 'lol' out of retirement to show you how funny I thought that last para was, lol lol lol lol, laf Bri.

A link to WRAP:

http://www.mentalhealthrecovery.com/

WRAP was developed by and for people with mental health problems, but can be used by anyone.

Incidentally, the woman who set up WRAP - and has written around 12 or more books now - told her psychiatrist "I want to write a book." Her psychiatrist allegedly replied: "You're being grandiose." After she wrote her book, Mary Ellen Copeland told her psychiatrist: "I want to run workshops." Psychiatrist's reply: "A person with your condition can't run workshops."

He was wrong about that, too.  :)

I'm happy because I helped my father update his website again. Not only did we do a great job (even if I say so myself), but even more importantly, I got to spend time with the first man in my life, and I got the chance to help someone I love.  :)

Happy today because I got a new cord for my glasses -- this time a leather plait rather than the beady affairs that break easily. Also . . . altering skirts [both expensive, one leather] too dear to replace and . . .  for 8 each I'll have both my 60 skirt and my 140 skirt wearable, comfortably. :D :D :D :D :D
