      BCF on Patreon!   11/10/2018

      I'm very excited to finally share with you that BCF now has patreon! I'm sure some of you are familiar with patreon already, but for those who aren't here's what it means for the forum:   You will now be able to support the forum monthly. The amount you'd like to give is entirely up to you but, the more you give, the more rewards you get. The rewards (this is the most exciting part!) include entry to a monthly competition when you donate $2 or more. I really cannot wait to show you the first competition prize!   I really do need your support to keep this forum running and I hope that with patreon I can give something back to those who do support too. I am also aware that there's a possibility this might not work. For that reason, I'll be running it on a 6 month trial and I would really appreciate your feedback in that time.   Members who are current supporters will get automatic entry into the competitions until their current years membership runs out (although obviously you can still join the patreon before your current membership runs out if you want to!)   If you have any questions just send me a message, or come to the 'Changes' section of the forum.   If you'd like to get started on patreon, you can find the Book Club Forum here... https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum

What cheered you up today?

Recommended Posts

The fact that its a bank holiday so I don't have to go to work today!

 

Nice! :D

 

Nothing has particularly cheered me up today, but getting home after work was probably came closest. :yes:

This is a lovely topic. Thought I would revive it.

 

This happened six or seven years ago when I worked in Poundland (a shop that sells items for £1 each) over the Christmas period. 

One, extremely busy day a customer comes to my checkout and is wanting to buy some Christmas plates. She only has one so I tell her "you can get three for £1. Would you like me to get somebody to bring you some more?" She replies yes and so I ring for someone. Now she has been waiting a good ten minutes at this point and not once complained. I don't work in retail now but I have also worked in Primark in the past and she is one of the nicest, understanding customers I had.

 

This Easter my brother (28) bought my sister (29) an Easter egg because she didn't have one 

 

Today: I bought some books

I got paid, which has made me very happy as I've been very strapped for cash the last few days!

Several things - first and foremost the knowledge that it was Friday and the end of the week. Having a cuddle from one our clients was also nice, as was getting home to find an ice cream waiting for me in the freezer.

Going for a ten mile walk, followed by some fine ales.  The second part may not have finished yet.😉

I was driving home, feeling sad, worrying about my goddaughter. She was born only yesterday and they've had to take her to neonatal care today. As I was driving home from my friends' house - about an hour's drive - I was listening to Epica as I always am. But then I felt like I needed different music, which never happens so usually means I'm really not okay mentally. So I put on Lacuna Coil, let my car randomly choose the songs - the first song I got was Heaven's a Lie, which is my first LC song and still my favourite (also the song that the singer from Epica has been featured on live sometimes). The second song was Purify, my second-favourite LC song.

 

Basically, my car gave me my two Lacuna Coil comfort songs when I needed it most, and it brought a smile to my face.

I find just driving home in the car makes me smile especially at this time of the year when you know you can go out into the garden, do a bit of watering, dead head some flowers, and just take in the amazing beauty of the flowers.

Congratulations, that's great news :).

 

Today isn't over yet here, so instead I'll post what cheered me up yesterday: my boyfriend put together the second-to-last bookcase and I can now start re-organising my books :D.

Two very small things put a smile on my face yesterday.  Talking to two colleagues at different ends of the country on the phone yesterday and one is from the north, and when he says goodbye, he says, "bye, chuck" which cheers me up every time.  And, then talking to another colleague from London, who when he says goodbye, says "Bye ... bye, bye" just like the girl in Shaun of The Dead, which also makes me smile.  It's the little things :)

I finished reorganising our bedroom cupboards and drawers, and I can now open my cupboard door properly! :D (it has been a while since I could!)

I love those regional terms of endearment, I used to speak to a Scottish lady quite often who always called me "hen", and ,my friend's mum, who was also Scottish, used to call everyone "pet".  Hard to believe some people find these terms offensive or sexist!

Not today, but yesterday it was my, ahem, cat's birthday, and a friend/ neighbours over with some chocs ! :)

 

It's her birthday soon, so I'm treating her to some favourite books.
