What still makes you smile?

    Recommended Posts

    A few weeks ago we had a thread about what you no longer think of as new, on the flip side - what still makes you happy that you moved to the other side of the world?

     

    For me it's being able to paddle in the sea and spend hours playing on the beach in the middle of winter like we did yesterday,

    Seeing geraniums grown as bushes rather than window-sill plants,

    Living in the same country where the Bungle Bungles are (never been but the name alone makes me smile)

    Being able to listen to Oliver's Army and not wish I was anywhere else than here today.

    Passing Roos on the roadside.

     

    A flock of noisy Galah's.

     

    The Sea!

     

    The Aussies, bless em................... well most! They have accepted us.

    :biglaugh:!

     

    I always smile when I come down Flagstaff Road at night and see all the lights below me. I love the lines and colours.

     

    The fact I can be on a beautifully clean beach so quickly

     

    When I'm in a convo and I 'get' the references or know who they're talking about

     

    The sound of a footy siren on the oval at the bottom of our road - it was so alien to us when we arrived but quickly became such an important / big part of our lives

     

    I smile when I'm in the city yet can see trees etc

     

    The sight of rosellas, budgies, black cockatoos, the cacophony of the birds particularly in the morning

     

    The pullout bit advertising all the showbags

     

    So much makes me smile - although I always have had a lot to smile at so it is possible I'm just a bit of an idiot lol

    The views (day or night) driving to the City from the hills - Flagstaff, Belair, Old Belair or South Road

    Blue skies when I open the blinds so many mornings

    Kargaroos and koalas and flocks of galahs and parrots

    Bottle brush trees

    The beaches - any time of the year

    So many good wineries on our doorstep

    Starry skies

    Driving through Coromandel Valley most days (especially in Winter when its green again)

    Sitting outside in Winter eating or drinking coffee

    Sunsets

    Free tram rides and shopping in Central Market - great being Seniors

    The O-Bahn

    Museums in North Terrace

    Popeye boat rides and black swans

    Pelicans on the Coorong and Whales in Encounter Bay

    That it's so easy to travel a short distance a see a crystal clear night sky and you can enjoy it without hearing a pin drop.

    Being able to take the kids to the park in the middle of winter which isn't wet or freezing and hasn't been vandalised or padlocked by the local council.

    The noise the magpies make.

    Seeing flocks of sulphur crested cockatoos.

    If I ever see kangaroos, or blue tounged lizards on the road (not often).

    Hot weather.

    Being woken by the call of the kookaburras, even if it is obscenely early.

    The view from Ocean Boulevard.

    The amazing variety of birds when I'm walking Trevor round Tangari.

    The beaches - at any time of the year.

    Listening to our daughter's Aussie accent.

    Wondering why our son doesn't have an Aussie accent....
