A couple of days ago I made a discovery that delighted me so much it felt like being a kid again.

Parcel Tracking - but not the kind that says 'your parcel is out for delivery sometime today'.

No, it's a little green tracking bar that fills up as the parcel gets nearer to you. It was like following Santa on Google on Christmas eve


Not only that, but I could do the tracking using a tablet whilst lying in bed.

Now, don't all roll your eyes. I expect the system has been around for ages, but it was new to me. And I've never denied being a complete technophobe.

So what little discoveries or small pleasures delight you out of all proportion to their usefulness?

One of the things that amuse me is watching my microwave counting down
as I heat something up.
Listening to the "music" of various video games and humming the tunes in my head.

I love when I ordera pizza from dominos and I can watch the process online to see when they got the order and who put it in the oven and when its ready.. I love it. And then you can send them a note of encouragement and I do that. One says thank you for making my dinner!

Now something that just amuses me and gets me laughing is breaking out in a dance in a store when my 11yr old boy is with me.. heehee its so fun.

Like those Gherkin pickles? I craved those little sweet pickles while I was pregnant.

My goodness, can you see the finished product well enough to count all the bits in the topping?

Because I've heard the delivery driver might filch a few of those.

I am sure another thing that amuses you is talking about slimy boogies.

Coins, jewelry, pocket knives, watches, gold nuggets, bits of collectable stuff.

If it is tangible and has intrinsic value…

too bad I don't own any of those things, sigh

I ordered a 'za from dominos the other day, the note i gave was: Bro, destroy that 'za with bacon.

The 'za was thus baconized. 😎
