The best things in life are free...

I like to think we are friends over here now so I have no problem telling you that the last few weeks have been full on. Even though things have been rough I wanted to take the time to acknowledge a few things that have really made me smile recently, because, well, why not...

:: The lovely email I received from H, one of the people who actually read my ramblings (people read this - I still can't quite believe it sometimes!). She decided to email me after reading this post and her email was perfectly timed. I won't go into the in's and out's of it but I just wanted to say thank you, again, for your kind words and taking time out of your day to get in touch (xx).

:: Reading old emails that Joe and I sent each other whilst he was on holiday in America when we first got together. It is so nice to recall the feelings that were then so new.

:: Having an out of the blue text arrive from a work colleague to see how things were and just say hello. Very much appreciated.

:: Reading some lovely comments from you guys on my posts - you always cheer me up with your thoughts and responses, get in touch at any time!

:: Trying on a multitude of fluffy and bobbly hats in a late night trip to Marks and Spencer with mum (this also resulted in me looking like I had been electrocuted - static overload!)

:: The early morning, pre-school-opening giggle my colleague and I often share as we get ready for the day ahead. This mad five minutes is worth its weight in gold.

:: Watching our cat, Gizmo, going bonkers to Bon Jovi. There are no words for what she gets up to at times.

:: Getting a text from Joe to say he is going to cook sausages and baked potatoes for dinner (and gravy of course). Comfort food always helps :-)

:: Smelling every Christmas candle possible. I want all of them!

Thank you guys for being patient with me. Normal service will be resumed shortly, I promise. xx



  1. You there, do you need anything?? Anything at all that a virtual buddy can send you?!
    Loved this post, focusing on tiny happy things can be such a boost.

    1. Hey gorgeous lady. Anything you can send me... let me think... virtual chocolate? An additional day in the week (well, an extra weekend day specifically!)... some sleep?! How are you? Have you recovered from your tumble?xx
