What else has made me happy lately? Oh yes, I sold the hen house I made from reclaimed materials and there is interest in the one I finished making at the weekend. This latest creation is built onto an old wheelbarrow. Keeping a few hens in the back garden is becoming very popular. I need to find a new source of old timber.

The ride on lawn mower broke down yet again. Not really surprising. Things are always going wrong with it. I was given it secondhand years ago when my friend Nicko got a new one. Apart from all the hassles it has served me well really. But this latest breakdown had me thinking the end had come for it. For a while I thought about buying a new one. But then I decided to have a go at fixing it myself. I am not very good at mechanical things, even though I love engines, but I thought there might be a problem with the carburettor. Anyway I stripped it down, cleaned it and by some miracle managed to put back together again. And the lawn mower began to work again! Hooray! That was a nice thing. Funny how happy making an old lawn mower work has made me.

This computer suddenly stopped working a few days ago. I took it to be repaired. The man couldn't find anything wrong with it, but told me he thought it was something I plugged into it. I brought it back home and sure enough it was the monitor. I changed it and hey presto success! And he never even charged me. What a decent bloke, and what a nice thing to happen.

Do you remember I told you I had my motor insurance policy cancelled after two days and they charged me £71? Well I got in touch with the financial ombudsman straight away, and lo and behold a few days later got my money refunded. As you can imagine I was happy about that.
This evening Tricia treated me to a Burger King Whopper meal. I like the occasional hamburger. Why is it called a hamburger when it is made from beef? It was very nice and as I was hungry I was happy to eat it.
I hope nice things are happening for you too and that you are happy.
