This morning when I woke up, I was, as usual, underneath the blanket, my head on the pillow. My boyfriend had gone to work hours ago, so I rolled over expecting to see nobody in bed next to me. Instead, I encountered my fluffy kitten, underneath the covers, with her head on my pillow.

Every time
I am at home, in me jammies, and I have run out of skins. Before anyone can come home and save me and bring me some. Before you have to put on clothes and go the shop.
That search around the house, upstairs, downstairs, and in every single pocket of everything you have ever worn, where you know papers don't live because you have looked there before, many times.
Then you find an almost empty packet. With a few in it to tide you over. And you kiss it. Like it saved your life. Instead of shortening it by a decade at least.
I love those moments.

All these moments will be lost, like tears in rain

There is a night in the mid 1990s which probably qualifies as the mythical Best Night Of My Life. It involved a summer night, a newly-met young lady, music, countryside, heroic quantities of drugs, nudity, watching the sunrise, llamas, good friends, motorcycles... in fact, pretty much all of the good things in life. Even though it is now long ago, and the relationship that started that night eventually imploded spectacularly, it remains a cherished memory.

One day, many years after, I was walking down the street, when a total stranger stopped and said "Hey - I know you. I've got photos of you at a free party, ages ago." It turned out that he'd been taking pictures that night, and had recognised me from some of them. He was even kind enough to give them to me, which was a joyful moment as I had no idea that any pictures of the night even existed.

You know that girl in Eastenders with the dark hair that kept getting beaten up by her husband about 10 years ago?
Well she was the one that originally came up with one of the classic British TV detectives.

Only she wrote the character to be a Russian detective, but because her handwriting's terrible, it's easy to confuse her Ls and her Ss.

That's right!

Little Mo meant "Sovejoy".

Now - kiss me with your mouth.

of the missus going at my turgid member like Ray Mears trying to start a fire, I realise that the photos I had taken hadn't automatically been shared on Facebook because I had turned the feature off.

I had been eggbound for a few days. Finally things were beginning to move. And after 20 minutes grunting and sweating, thinking I might have to tie a rope around it and pull it out, my sphincter dilated and out it slid gracefully like a ship being launched.
To add to the joy, I had Princess Anne standing by to smash a bottle of champagne against it.

This morning I was having a bath and I noticed I had an erection. Well, I started to piss and the piss went
into my mouth. Next thing I woke up and I wasn't in the bath it was the bed and long story short apparently I will have to start wearing adult diapers to bed.

A lad got on the tube, and his headphones were too loud.
So I rustled my newspaper and tutted quietly to myself.

Just this minute
I finally found my other slipper, which I wear around the house to stop myself banging my toes into the furniture; out of the corner of my eye I saw something looking very slipper-shaped, so I whirled round to confirm my good fortune, banging my toes into the furniture in the process.

Well - there was this one time I got done for speeding.
The copper who gave me the ticket called me a nonce, but I'd recorded it on my 'phone.

I let the case go to court, and when called to the stand, proceded to play the recording.

Case dismissed!

Overhearing conversations
I was staying in a swanky hotel last night with work and took the opportunity to do a little people watching. It looked like they were setting up for some kind of a chess championship at the weekend and I couldn't help listening in on what turned out to be bunch of chess grand masters bragging about their games in the hotel lobby.

I had a moment of pure joy when I realised how long it had been since I had seen chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.

The wife and I had sex, last night,
which was so-so (Dr Shambolic has ruined that woman). However, ever since that mumsnet thread, I've been keeping a Penis Beaker on standby - what a revelation! Dunking my steaming bits into a mug of cold water was just the greatest feeling!
From now on, I'm going to forgoe the sex and head straight for the beaker, ensuring that I get my daily moment of joy, without all the hard work.

I had a shit in the work toilet the other day
and after 3 squeezes I was done. I stood up ready to wipe and glanced back at the bowl. I'd plopped 2 small circular poos and a turd that stretched across the bottom of the pan and somehow they had naturally arranged themselves into the shape of a smiley ACEEEEEED face.

It's moments like these that make me feel glad to be alive.

infant words
I work away from home a lot. I've been away for the last 6 days. I came home today to my little baby daughter (17 months) say "Dada" as a walked in the door.

The little moment of joy is not from her saying "Dada", she's been saying it for ages. It's the pain on my wife's face at the fact she still can't say Mama
