    The noise when you pee directly and deliberately into the middle of the water in the toilet bowl after having a few pints :-)

    The louder it is , the more manly I feel
    The prostate obviously still in good order.

    Putting your level on a snooker table with someone over your shoulder and finding the bubble spot bang in the middle of the lines. Bearing in mind sliding a piece of paper under the level can send it degrees out but still good enough for a table.

    For a few days after I've cut my hair I can't keep a pencil behind my ear without it slipping out when I lean forward or look down. Every now and then when i manage to catch it before it hits the floor midway through a cut with a handsaw feels like a small but enjoyable victory.

    When I'm totally bald in the not too distant future I'm going to have to start using the chunkier pencils sold as specific carpentry ones. That'll be one for the peeves thread when the time comes as they're crap.

    A wee bit of blue tack on the top of the lug, no?

    When you run an internet speed test and you're getting 215Mbps instead of the 200Mbps you were promised. Thanks Virgin.

    Walking into a cold/warm flat on a roasting/freezing day

    Walking into a 5* hotel room safe in the knowledge that you're paid **** all to be there

    Those brief, brief moments when there are genuinely no dishes to be done and no laundry.

    Nope, can't think of any recent small victories. I just keep telling myself that i'm saving up for a big one...... a really big one.

    When the compromise you're forced to make in negotiations was only on the table as negotiable bulk and you walk away with everything you wanted.

    When you sell something and the buyer thinks he knocked you down massively but you walk away with what you actually wanted, having inflated your original asking price.

    My youngest has started to use the toilet fairly consistently and more to the point quite accurately. It's hopefully just a matter of days till I change the last dirty nappy I'll ever come into contact with. At least till I need them myself in later life.

    Come to think of it this is more than just a small victory, it's a massive one!

    When you're walking along the street and go to cross the road and the green man appears just as you approach the kerb so you don't need to break stride.

    Beating someone in a race on the pavement that they don't know they are taking part in.

    To go the distance.

    When you're walking straight towards a group on the pavement (******** businessmen in suits gives me the sweetest feeling of victory) and they part to let you through so you don't have to deviate your course.

    A Hearts fan giving a "5-1" gesture or shout in my direction feels like a win these days.

    1. My favourite small victory is to stuff all the advertising crap I receive into the enclosed s.a.e. and mail it right back to them - plus any other company's flyers I can fit in the same envelope.

    2. When opening a tomato ketchup sachet, cutting the corner off with scissors so you don't spend a lifetime trying to tear it open.

    3. Getting into a pistachio nut that hasn't opened properly.

    Or when you have been fighting with a spreadsheet for ages to get it to do something that you know is possible but don't know, and then get it to work.

    Shelling a boiled egg perfectly. Or getting a poached egg just right.

    Fast forwarding the adverts on sky plus and hitting play exactly when the tv show comes back on.

    On a road that I take 2-3 times a week there's a set of lights on the dual carriageway with a crappy hill start to negotiate if you're stopped. There's no greater small victory than arriving at said set of lights just as they turn green and steaming past some bam in a porsche or the like that overtook me at a crazy speed about half a mile before.

    Leaving the car on a single yellow and returning just that moment before the torn faced disaster brexit voting yam **** traffic warden registers you on his wee machine. And watching his dejected wee face.

    Claiming back expenses from your corporate overlords even if its just a pound.

    Driving bang on the speed limit on a road impossible to overtake on when getting tailgated

    When a horrible punters went that tiniest bit over the line with something that wouldn't normally annoy you that much that you can justifiably bar them for with no repercussions

    When CCTV coverage shows a complaiming parent that his son's version of events were total bollox and he was thrown out of your venue for a valid reason.
