Beautiful Day

Came back to a disaster of an NBN transition - day 6 and still resolving. But at least the internet is now working, just no phone line...ahhhh.

After a very frustrating few days, I woke with a smile and this song put a spring in my step. I spent the whole day on a high for no reason, just this song on high rotation. (To be honest, I'm guessing it was the hormonal upswing of being quite down for a few days about this country's current political shennanigans, and the NBN stress). Whatever it was, sometimes something so miniscule can change your outlook. You just need to 'Open your box of blessings and take out something to smile about.'

  1. I adore that quote - and will be using it in next weeks corporate newsletter. You're so right though, sometuimes it's the little things that bring joy - and we often only recognise it because they come when we're down. Yesterday I saw the first blossom on the flame tree out the front of our house & was immediately lifted.

    1. I'm not really a nature person, but I have noticed I've started getting great joy from the flowers in the street as I walk the dog (as my photos may show). It's a really interesting thing for me...I don't know if I didn't notice before or I didn't appreciate them?

  2. That quote is a good reminder. Hope your phone line is back on soon. #lovin'lifelinky

  3. That quote! I've never heard it before but I absolutely love it. Thank you! That song is a goodie too - and I wasn't aware of that either. We are gonna have to transition to NBN soon too and I dread it. My mother has had no end of problems with it *sigh*! #TeamLovinLife

    1. Seriously, the guys came at 7 am and left without telling us, and left both the front door and the front gate open, even though they knew we had a dog. They also left with nothing working. We paid a guy to come out and 'fix' it. It worked for a few hours and then it just kept dropping out. By saturday it wasn't working again and after hours on the phone I worked out they'd given us a broken modem (that I'm gussing had been returned by someone else as it had no user manual in it). We paid the guy to come back on Monday because I couldn't deal with it and after an hour on the phone, telstra told him we had a faulty modem. I went off my nut. Went to the shop and got it replaced and then paid the guy to come back AGAIN and fix it. Which he did. But now we have no phone line. Telstra say I just need to turn it on and off but I'm a little scared to do that incase it all goes MIA again....ahhhhh

  4. Oh Lydia. we too had some dramas when we had to switch to NBN via the very crappy way. Same line as telstra being used but "could only be touched" by NBN person. Living in a regional area, guess what we saw, same guy, went to truck and changed uniform. ALL about the dollars. Yes, it was horrid and for some stupid reason we have 3 NBN modems now as Telstra kept sending them to us. In April 2018 I dreaded the move to a new house with NBN but once we hooked the phone/modem up (IN THE GARAGE) because it is a new estate and NBN to the premises, it just kicked in. I won't say it's any better than ADSL but it works. My Dad, at 95 is going to have to get NBN at his unit even though he has no devices nor internet. This government did nothing right in getting this sorted. Nothing. Rant over. Denyse #lovinlifelinky

  7. Lydia,

    We always can find something to smile about if we only look within, count those blessings because they are many. I glad your mood took an upward sweep through mewsic. I find that happens with me often. It's beautiful medicine for the soul. Thanks for joining the 4M crew on the dance floor, my dear. Have a songsational week! ;)

  8. ...Lydia, I enjoy the steel drum sound on this tune. I still remember hearing a steel drum band for the first time in 1960. Thanks for stopping by, I hope that you are having a beautiful day!

  10. I have no idea what NBN is but I hope your internet and phone get fixed soon! It's awful to be without it, even if we don't use it often!

    Your post on 'My Corner of the World' is much appreciated!

  13. Loved the purple of that bridge. We need a beautiful day now and then - things have become stressful for so many in our country. Nice hearing an upbeat song. Thank you for joining us! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  15. NBN! Don't get me started on it, Lydia. We must have one of the most inefficient telecommunication companies in the world. My father who is elderly and lives alone had to get the NBN connected as his phone line had to be connected through the internet. Guess what? It keeps dropping out and I had to get him a mobile phone which he can use when the normal phone doesn't work (which is often!).
    Lovely night view of the coat hanger!
    Thanks for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.
