I’m back, properly, and typing away on my brand new MacBook Air! It feels like such a luxury to have a new piece of equipment in the office and I’m already finding my work day SO much easier to manage. I’ll never treat you badly again, MacBook… I spent most of my Tuesday afternoon setting it up and adding another beautiful Design Love Fest wallpaper to it. Ain’t much better than having a shiny new device to set up, am I right?! As such, this week has been a real joy in itself because I’ve been able to get on with my day-to-day tasks and get cracking on some deliciously exciting new client projects.
There’s a lot to be said for appreciating the smaller, not necessarily finer details of the everyday mundane. Here’s to another list of petite joys, the moments that’ve brought and woven poetry to my days, this fortnight:
一. Being able to get out on the dog walk with my Dad and sister on Tuesday, as I was working from home.
二. A date day in the rain with Harvey on Sunday. We ate Italian food, grabbed coffee and cake from our favourite local vegan café and cuddled the dogs.
三. My new MacBook!!
四. When new skincare manages to Tetris-slot into your already-overflowing skincare stash just so.
五. Evenings spent gossiping with my sister, until late.
六. The sure and steady drip-drip-drip of rainfall as we walk through the woods.
七. Putting plans together for Chez Chai!
八. Instagram! Come and find me on there. (One day, I’ll bloomin’ be able to use @daisybutter, but until then I’m @winyeemichelle!)
九. Walking into a room and smelling it, full of fragrance from our autumn diffuser.
十. You; my heart is so full from the messages, comments, emails and DMs following Monday’s post. I felt so vulnerable sharing it, but so thankful now that I did.
What are some of the joys in your life lately?
