1. My football (soccer) team earns a reprieve when the teams chasing them in the league draw and lose their respective matches. Huge sighs of relief all around. But no more screw-ups please!
2. I get an email letting me know that I've received a service award. It's a little unexpected - I knew I'd been nominated but didn't think top management would approve - but very welcome. I've been feeling unappreciated lately and this is a wonderful boost.
3. It's raining when I step out of the house to get to work, but wonder of wonders I manage to flag down a cab within 5 mins. It doesn't matter that he's unfamiliar with the route - he gets me to work on time.
