Right now I’m smiling because I’m watching the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and just got to one of my favourite scenes.
No, not the lake scene (although that is on my list). It’s the first proposal scene.
I don’t care how incredibly wrong he got it; if someone said to me, “you must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you”, I would be swooning all over the place. Especially if Colin Firth said it.
I can’t count how many times I’ve been into Glasgow Uni Chapel since moving up here. Let’s say ‘many’. I love it for several reasons, but the main reason is the detail in the decoration.
Almost nothing matches; I could spend a whole day in there just looking at the different carvings and images and patterns.
Today I’m smiling because I went to hear Chapel Choir performing, and noticed two massive stone angels either side of an arch that I must have scanned over hundreds of times. They are huge and I have never ever noticed them before. So much for being observant!
My work laptop keeps locking me out and for IT to fix it, it must be plugged in to the Babcock network (not the Alliance network that this office uses).
The nearest Babcock office is away on the outskirts of Glasgow, and I have a report due last Friday that’s still not finished. I don’t particularly have time for this.
BUT I’m smiling because I choose to see this as an excuse to get out of my chair and into the rare Scottish sunshine. If the wifi works I can keep going with the report on the way, and if not I shall just enjoy the views. The office isn’t hours away, it’s not raining/snowing/hailing outside, and it should get all the wee problems with my laptop sorted out. Things could be so much worse 🙂
