The world seems grim right now with Covid, Brexit, endless atrocities, and my cold, uncaring birth family are going to the extreme to prove they don't give two hoots about me.
Is there anything nice we can discuss? e.g. I'm so happy that All Creatures Great and Small and The Great British Bake Off are coming back in the next few weeks. Also Strictly Come Dancing. Lots of silly shows to distract us.
Maybe this is a thread for people who have had enough, to come and talk about lighter, happier subjects.
The brightest light in my universe just now is my ASC assessment yesterday went really well.
I was extremely anxious before, but it was a great experience and the assessor was ASC herself.
It was quite…
Autum is nearly here!!!!!!!!!!! I absolutely cannot wait. The air gets a bit chillier (hopefully!) we will have gorgeous colours in nature. The light as it drips through the sky in September is magnificent…
My positive for today after a long day was my dog happy to see me when I got home. Probably a childish thing to put, but it was very welcome.
It was quite cathartic, and she prompted memories that had not surfaced for decades.

If we didn't have the internet / the news etc and know about all the awful stuff, it's things like this which make us human and feeling connected with our world.
My positive news is the clearing-out I've done; unearthing two box sets of stoneware crokery from 1978. (wedding gifts for mummy)
What about made-up words that express joy? keeblegee Feng Feng for one
The things that bring me happiness are sport and any form of the creative arts. I guess the right people too. One day i will meet them again.
Ooh! That's good!
What's ASC? Autistic Spectrum something?
That is a really pretty description and reminds me I used to love Autumn. Now it just means Winter is coming But yes the colours are lovely.
Well done! I'm clearing out my home now too, I've finished our bedroom and now to start on the lounge. I'm not looking forward to the lounge but I wasn't looking forward to the bedroom and that was easier than I feared, so fingers crossed!
The trick is to do it in small bits, not all at once.
Those sound very good sources of happiness. Yes, maybe one day we'll all meet the right people, although the pandemic made zero difference to my life, I don't expect to meet anyone in particular in future. But I've accepted that now.
