I’ve been relishing small pleasures this week. Sometimes it really helps me to slow down and appreciate the simple things. Get my mojo back so to speak.
I haven’t been running barefoot through wet grass (even the thought of that is pleasurable), because it’s been too dry here lately, it’s been cold too, although to be fair it was lovely yesterday and it’s still warm today. No wet grass though.
I have been outside in the garden a lot and despite the dry conditions most things are doing well:
The birds have been kind enough to give us a few free plants:
The climbing rose has burst into flower:
There were just a few tiny rainbow chard leaves left from last year, enough to make one of my favourite lentil dishes:
I’ve been on a spending spree too. My ‘retail therapy’ yielded 2 skirts and a top for around £10 in total after an evening browsing ebay:
A nice cup of tea is always a pleasure and I love chamomile tea and Green tea with ginger but since the two below were on special offer. I thought I’d give them a try. A change is as good as a rest!
I think I just liked the colour of the boxes. I’m drinking the blood orange one now though and it’s good.
If I could include out takes from this post, you would see me tidying the shed out and leaving very fast, chased by a massive big bazza (spider). There were so many in there but I left them, reasoning that it’s their home and they spend more time there than I do. I think that big bazza was the largest I’ve seen for a long time!
I’ll leave you with a final couple of photos sent by a friend of their new kitten. She’s called Mimi and is only 8 weeks old:
Have a good week.
