Off for a well deserved holiday soon! I shall be spending the next 9 days climbing mountains in Scotland :D :D :D

I think I most definitely need the break after working 3 jobs, 7 days a week (some weeks) for the last 6 months. Fingers crossed it isn't too snowy, I don't fancy getting caught in an avalanche :shock:

I really like the idea of this, I’m definitely feeling like some positivity is needed in the world!

So my reason to be positive today is:

My roses have been cleared of greenfly and are producing buds! I was worried that they might die off as they were bought in memory of someone very special so I’m very glad they’re recovering!

Great thread!

I went for a car wash today, and the regular place was closed. I always try and find a hand car wash as the bristles in the machines can scratch your car, so I finally found another one. As the guy was cleaning the inside rim of the rear doors, he found a pound coin under the seat. I was unaware of this, but the guy (who spoke next to no english) still returned it with a smile. Just made me happy that there are still some good people around. I'd have tipped him if I wasn't so broke :oops: . On the plus side, I think I have found my new "regular".

The worrying sounding rattling in my car was simply a loose bracket fixed in 5 minutes with some cable ties and no charge from the mechanic!
