Brits can be a tough bunch to crack.
There are often zero smiles, scrutinising looks wherever you go and those who aren't busy frowning are rushing around like they're on a mission to save the planet from an impending alien attack.
The thing is though, we do have our precious moments of pleasure.
And regardless of how small they are, we can all agree that when the following happens, life is bloody great:
When The Weatherman Gets It Right
It's a rarity, but when it happens it really is glorious. Ain't that right, Leo?
When The Sun Shines
And you're not at work.
When It Rains Heavily
And you're tucked up in bed.
Nothing melts our icy hearts like a cat dressed as a lion.
With babies = even better.
