Something good... (down with weird suckiness)

    In an attempt to counter the weird suckiness in the ether that Peter (and many of the rest of us) have been feeling, I'm reviving Carol's post from some time ago.

    Tell me something good. Anything at all. Something that brightened your day. Writing-related or not. Let's dispel the weird suckiness, at least in this little corner of the Internet. :)

    I'll start. We've had a grim couple of days here, with a wildfire having burned over 2000 hectares of our beautiful Port Hills and quite a few homes. But there are so many positives I've seen. The mayors of Selwyn District and Christchurch City, and fire crews from all around the region have been working tirelessly, not only to put out the fires, but to squash media attempts to turn the fires into a scandal as well as a tragedy--they have been sensible and calm in the face of a grim situation. Another good--within minutes of the first evacuations, hundreds of people had offered their homes, paddocks, and businesses to displaced people and their pets on a Facebook page set up by an ordinary member of the community. We may be the natural disaster capital of New Zealand, but the people who live here have huge hearts and a strong sense of community.

    I recently found this letter my daughter wrote to the tooth fairy, a few years ago. Have cake and eat it attitude -- she'll go far...

    I got to give my mother in laws christmas present after it was lost in the post and got a replacement. She was so pleasantly surprised it made me happy. :)

    Yesterday, I bought a clip-on spotlight for a bargain £2 from my local charity shop. It's made by IKEA which is the first thing I've ever owned by them. Clipped to a picture frame, hanging on the wall above my laptop, it illuminates the keyboard perfectly.

    (It's also made me realise, that I need to clean my keyboard!):confused:

    Getting to see an author, whose books I have been devouring recently, at London Piccadilly Waterstones next week. So excited! :D

    Xiaolu Guo. She is astonishing, brave, poignant. Her latest book is Once Upon a Time in the East.
