Wiring summat up incorrectly often does it for me.

I was at CPL down Scully Lane earlier. I've had plenty of my sparks in my life this afty.

 

Forgot to ask them if the yard lights were still working.

Booking a holiday.

Taking a good (to me ) photo.

Taking a portrait photo of someone and they say that they like it (people often don't like their own image).

Stepping off an aeroplane in a foreign country.

Getting the first glimpse of St.Ives as you drive down the coast road through Carbis Bay after a 350 mile journey.

Landing on the Tarmac at Manchester airport knowing that at last you are in the most beautiful and diverse country in the world.

That usually depresses me until I actually get home. Then you get that warm feeling of home, things you know and your own bed.

Visiting St. Ives for the first time, the view looking down from the hill took my breath away. Simply fell in love with the place.

I once thought that after travelling back from the Middle East. We do have a most beautiful country to be proud of.

You're right there. Although I now live in Australia I always love going back to the UK.
Last year I went over for a holiday with my ex-boyfriend, who is an Aussie and never been to the UK, and seeing the country through the eyes of someone seeing it for the first time really made me appreciate just how beautiful it is.
He couldn't get over the history of the place, and he absolutely loved Robin Hoods Bay....funny how you take places for granted when they are so familiar.

I go hiking on a regular basis and never cease to be amazed at our stunning countryside. All being well, once Jessica is walking I'll be buying her some walking boots.  :)

Going for a long walk on the beach with my dog Bryn (with the beach being right at the end of my road I can (and do) do that every day). And I can stop off at the Benbow for a pint of Pale Rider while I'm at it. So lucky.

I guess the 25th of July might light things up for me too - if my first grandchild arrives on time.

Oh, and a nice cup of tea.


eh?

Going to the game at Odsal tomorrow and taking my granddaughter.

 

She's only 11 but has picked up the baton.

Great stuff. I recall taking our Stu to his first game at a young age. Once I'd bought him a drink and something to eat he asked about going home, and before the start of play.  :rolleyes: Now aged 32, he is still hooked and buys his own refreshments.  :D

Taking a good photo

Being outdoors

Digging up veg/picking fruit in my allotment after watching it grow through the seasons

Walking in the countryside/out on the moors

A good view

Riding through the Dales on my Benelli

A good holiday

Finding somewhere new to visit/walk to/photograph

 

Think that will about do for now. :D

There is always something positive if you search for it. During a bout of deep depression some 25 years ago, I simply lost the heart. That said, I made a great effort to sort myself out without the "happy" pills and managed put things in perspective to defeat it.

Same with me but Whitby instead of St Ives. Despite living in Yorkshire all my life I never went to Whitby until I was 32. Love the place.
