This week has been expensive, long and full of to-do lists than cover multiple pages in my disorganised notebook. I mean, if I were to reflect on this week without a hidden agenda to document at least 10 great things, it just wouldn’t be one for the books! I started the week with my car failing its MOT and being caught in the rain for over 2 hours whilst I waited for it to be fixed, my phone bill was somehow double its usual amount, I keep finding myself asleep when I’ve a thousand things to be doing (I’ve attributed it to anaemia though)…
It’s just been one of those weeks. But, as always, there’s a lot to be said for appreciating the smaller, not necessarily finer details of the everyday mundane.
一. Avocado on toast for breakfast with added coriander, sea salt and heritage cherry and plum tomatoes. All about this life.
二. My new hair!
三. Feeling a new muscle burn at Barrecore and finally nailing my technique.
四. Checking up on the goslings and ducklings at the lake – they’re all getting so big now!
五. Vibrant hollyhocks peeking out from this way and that at the lake.
六. Snacking on leftover Mini Rolls from our Chester road trip last weekend.
七. The way the morning sunlight floods through my window and hits on my make-up whilst I’m getting ready.
八. How my hydrangea clippings match the new print hanging up in my bedroom.
九. 1x wriggling nose sniffing out his dinner whilst still asleep, resting on my leg. (Milo’s, FYI.)
十. Getting the water temperature right first-time in the shower.
What are some of your petite joys, lately?
