Really searched for some smiles today as I'm very tired and I haven't had a good day.
BUT there are always smiles, however small and fleeting.
A child who is not in school and so upset about missing your lesson that they send you a message.

Thanks from a visitor for what I consider to be doing my job.
Dinner with my boys at Nandos then later watching Only Connect and trying to beat each other at the missing vowels round.

And some lovely surprise tweets that reminded me that I'm not always a weary fed up grouch ;)
