Some Days are Diamonds

Some days everything just goes right. You get up with a jump and the sun is shining through the curtains. You put the clothes on the line and it doesn't rain on them all day. You wash some windows while the porridge is cooking but you don't get carried away and the pog is still unburnt when you remember it is on. You walk briskly to work and even though you are late, there is a hold-up, so no-one notices. The computer room is double booked but another is found for you in the music school. The sound of loud insistent drumming from the next room prevents you from doing your own project, but allows you to help a student colleague set up in blogging, much to her excitement. When the drumming stops, you have a great idea for a business card and discover a new cool font to use too. And when you get back to class you find the assignments are back, marked and you've got a good grade. What a wonderful day!


  1. Then you can listen to John Denver singing the song by the same name! LOL :)

  2. Was this a walk through an imaginary day or an actual one of your own?

  3. It was my day Robert. Just toying with a new style of writing... Seeing what it feels like. I suspect I am the last generation to feel guilt at not using 'one'. So this is a parody too...
    Ah, so many 'shoulds', so little life.

  4. It's good to know that a. you have had such a Good Day and b. that you appreciate it. So few do! So very few....

  5. I have those sort of days. Then I wake up.

  6. Oh Birdwatcher. At least you got to sleep, though!
    Good to see you here.

  7. I love these diamond days. Hope there are more of them.

    Have a wonderful day and enjoy it!
