Yeah yeah, I know.
But every other thread is some weird troll trying to convince me their teenager is doing something obscene or someone being disingenuous about family size, meal size, parenting or pet ownership in order to start a ruck.

I have a new shed and its gorgeous and I painted the inside pink and the outside sage green. I had the day off today and met a friend for coffee in our lovely park and then had another round for lunch IN MY SHED.
And it was sunny all day and I did way over my 10,000 steps.

Only slight negative is that I can't get the sage green paint off my fingernails.

So what nice things did you do today or think today or hear today?

As I walked from the car park into my office building I said hello to or had a quick chat with about 10 different people, I work in huge building and didny know half of the people but they were all do happy and chatty it was a really good start to the day.

I bought loads of plants on the way home from work and pottered about in the garden when I got home.

Ooh, sage green is VERY in for finger--nail--s this year.

I did a proper deep clean yesterday so when I got in from work today the house was all lovely.

AND I remember to defrost something delicious for DC!s tea. Felt like an actual adult for a while...

Mrs DV are you doing the MN garden challenge thingy? I wanted to do it but £100 wasn't even going to touch the sides of the hell hole outside our house grin

I had my very own Chelsea flower show in my garden and imagined winning a good medal for my hanging baskets.

My DS (2.5) has just started saying he loves me 😍, it was the first thing he said this morning and it made my day.

It is lovely and sunny so my DD was able to do her favourite thing, splash loads of water around herself in the garden and get soaking wet, without the heartbreak that usually follows when she realises she's freezing cold grin My roses are in bloom and look and smell magnificent, and the baby is a wee fat squidgy smiler who loves napping. He has nice dreams and grins big gummy grins in his sleep.

On my walk to work this morning I met a lovely little Yorkshire terrier and had some great cuddles.

GinGeum Mon 22-May-17 21:10:08

I did some painting of garden furniture too! GinDog was also very weirdly well behaved on our sunny walk this morning.

I gave up work last year, and money is obviously a lot tighter, but today whilst sat in the garden painting in the sun, I really realised how much better my health is for not having work stress.

TheFirstMrsDV Mon 22-May-17 21:10:32

I entered but didn't win Thatwould
So I am having a challenge all of my own grin

TheFirstMrsDV Mon 22-May-17 21:11:07

I love it when my dogs don't disgrace me Gin

TheFirstMrsDV Mon 22-May-17 21:12:07

Oh lovely.
Doggies and toddlers and plants

Three of my favourite things.

smile Unfortunately spending time sorting my garden out means that my family had free rein to create carnage indoors.
But never mind.

The WeeBaby - what you wrote gives me a warm fuzzy feeling, it's lovely smile

Good on you Mrs DV! Add your 'after' photo on the thread wink

UrsulaPandress Mon 22-May-17 21:17:38

I had a shed when I was little

SmileEachDay Mon 22-May-17 21:17:53

Yeah, the peace and tranquility and tidy lasted approximately 0.79 nano seconds after DC got home grin

I have a garden I like to refer to as "VERY GOOD FOR BUG HUNTING"

No shed, though 🤔

The kids were absolutely lovely this afternoon, playing in the garden, chalking on the patio (Ddog is now various shades of pastel colours she looks faahhhbulous), building forts, doing handstands (quite Balt in the case of DD) and generally being all giggly and squealy and cute

DS2 is 18 months and at the gorgeous stage of everything being new and exciting and hilarious, he was doing that baby belly laugh earlier at DD swinging her hair around to Little Mix and was literally doubled over with his hands on his knees chuckling his little head off
I love this stage, where the simplest of things can utterly make their day, he has the cheesiest little smile and such sparkly blue eyes his whole face lights up when he laughs, it makes my heart hurt he's just so delicious

I'm feeling a bit sentimental today ... Obviously blush

OuchBollocks Mon 22-May-17 21:20:09

I always wanted a shed. We have a summerhouse and a garage so a shed would be excessive, but I still sort of want one.

Hastalapasta Mon 22-May-17 21:22:25

I need a shed! Had a lovely day with the 3yro, and had fun with the older 2 after school. DH made me a huge gin and tonic whilst I was preparing dinner too!

EssentialHummus Mon 22-May-17 21:23:10

I just directed an incredibly lost Japanese tourist (was at Whitechapel, wanted Westminster) and I'm feeling warm and fuzzy after doing a good deed.

TheFirstMrsDV Mon 22-May-17 21:23:57

I have to admit is sort of summerhousey.

But still quite shedy.

Highalert Mon 22-May-17 21:24:10

We have a shed. We sometimes sit amongst the crap very important man things and have a cup of tea.
