chuffed \chuhft\, adjective:
1. annoyed; displeased; disgruntled.
2. delighted; pleased; satisfied.

When the baby was placed in his arms, he looked awfully chuffed. 

If it were me, it's definition #1. I really enjoy this word. Another is egregious. I don't know why it is that the English language has allowed for words to be their own antonym.

I have much respect for those who learn English as a second language. This is one of the reasons why!
