New figures suggest levels of happiness have fallen in Wales over the past five years, bucking the UK trend.
Between 2011/12 and 2015/16, there was a 4% drop in people in Wales reporting they were happy compared with a 16% rise in England and a 5% increase in the UK overall.
The data provides a half-decade picture of Britain's changing wellbeing levels for the first time and was compiled by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
Welsh areas which had notable falls included Merthyr Tydfil and Torfaen which saw drops of 3% and 4% respectively.
A pigeon had to be rescued after landing in a vat of oil in Merthyr Tydfil.
The used cold cooking oil was in an outside bin at a restaurant at Rhydycar and when the lid was taken off momentarily, the pigeon flew in and got himself into trouble.
This poor pigeon got himself into a bit of mischief, but thankfully staff at the restaurant were quick to react and managed to get the pigeon safely out otherwise he would have certainly drowned.
He was confined safely outside while I made my way over to collect him. He was completely covered in oil. He looked like one slick pigeon!
The pigeon was first taken to Merthyr Tydfil Veterinary Clinic for a vet check up, and then was taken to Gower Bird Hospital to be cleaned up and rehabilitated.

The Welsh Government has announced that regulated rail fares in Wales will not rise above the rate of inflation until at least October 2018.
This means that from January 2017 the maximum increase that Arriva Trains Wales can apply to regulated rail fares will be 1.9% - 0% above the Retail Price Index rate of inflation.
For 2017, we have again determined that capping fares at 0% above the rate of inflation is preferable – providing continuity to existing rail users and ensuring that travelling by train remain sattractive and affordable. Rail fare increases from January 2018 until the end of the current franchise in October 2018 will also be capped at the rate of inflation and not a penny more.
