going for a day out on the bike and hitting more curves up in the Mountains around Corinthia than is probably wise, with a friend or 2. (did this friday, no other feeling like it IMO)

They are cute  8)
What isn't cute is the rats which appear to have moved into my garden  :hmmm However the two dead ones outside the bait box, the one I got with the air rifle and the two which I saw leaving the bait box having had their fill of poison (so long suckers !) makes me happy - bring it on you long tailed vermin ! :lol:

Sitting back with a hot cup of tea, a good book, moggies on lap, and with the boys playing happily together on the floor.

That's always a wonderful 2 minutes that is...

Coming home from a hard day at work to see my little boy's smile.
Seeing my favourite wine on special in the supermarket.
Having my favourite F1 driver clinch pole at the last minute (go JB).
That feeling when you hear your favourite heavy metal song being played by someone driving past in a convertible car with the top down on a nice day.

Disasters and catastrophies in every day life and finding a way to handle them. Problems under water that I find myself capable of handling, helping my kids (or the kids at school) solve a conflict.
Every time I find myself handling a problem in a calm manner and find a solution to it.

Relaxation rarely makes me happy, just bored.

Hmmm, I'd agree with that-tis a good feeling when you're starting to think "I might actually die this time", but stay calm and think your way out of it (not just in a "I'm still alive!" kind of way - thats a given :wink:). Spose it feels like you've really taken control of a situation...

EDIT:   :hmmm I was refering to climbing there - realised afterwards it didn't make much sense. And diving too.

But I admit it can be a form of escapism to. When I feel like I haven't got much control over most of my life it's nice to create a situation where the only question becomes an "If I do this I survive, if I do this I die" problem  :wink: Most everyday difficulties are pretty more complex than that.

Yup, having your life hanging on your next decision does distract you from the more complex and less solvable issues in life...

1. Nice parcels in the post, even better when they are unexpected.
2. Driving with the music on loud.
3. A little bit of 'quiet/me' time late at night at the end of the day, either with a game/DVD/Miniatures...
4.  The birth of my first born (anticipation of, as baby is due on Friday...)

...researching female anatomy for those miniatures i never sculpt :angel:


"Research", that's what you are calling it?

OK, how about shooting the images that Grek uses for his research? That makes me happy.

I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life *were* fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?'

Yes, I use a camera. Sometimes the model holds a gun (prop, AirSoft or CO2 in the pictures).

I'd post a link, but the gallery is definitely NSFW. I'm sure that most of you who know me (or sort of know me) would expect nothing less.

Nothing beats getting a smile from a thirteen year old daughter. It's the rarity factor that does it  :wink:

Usually its riding a motorbike with the wind in your hair(haven't had that pleasure in a while).
larking about with old friends.
Sitting feet dangling over a couple of thousand foot drop at the top of a mountain
spending a day in the guts of a computer/car or various gizmos. 
Having fun with my wee sister
