Smile ... and the whole world smiles with you

Here is a picture you will probably seldom see. In the immortal words of Rolf Harris, Can you tell what it is yet?

Let me fill you in.

In an ill-advised moment recently, I gave 1-year-old Bargy a sheet of smiley stickers. The results have been coming back to bite me since.

There have been smilies on the walls, the floor, the steps, the table, the backs of chairs, the soles of the entire family's shoes and even on the seat of my jeans (of course only noticed upon returning from a trip out of the house).

But this latest discovery was a surprise. When I emptied the lint filter on the tumble drier this afternoon, a small cheerful face ensconsed in bits of fluff, was winking back at me.

So, as they say you are never fully dressed without a smile, I'd better put this one away with the rest of the clothes.
