101 small pleasures - part 1



I recently read Anne's list of 101 pleasures over on her blog, Belgianwaffle. I really enjoy Anne's blog, it is never boring and many posts resonate with me. Anne put together a list of 101 small pleasures and I thought this might be a useful exercise for me as I am struggling with a lack of motivation. There isn't really anything wrong, just the usual mix of assorted daily inconveniences and nuisances. Having said that, Richard has returned from his extensive work travels and the dog walker is back from his holidays. Only two of four children are giving me cause to worry. Things are returning to normal.

Anyway, I thought if I start with 10 small pleasures and maybe add to the list as and when, that would be manageable. Do you want to join me? Just add your small pleasures to the comments.
  1. Listening to a radio programme before going to sleep
  2. Finding the dishwasher already emptied
  3. Being greeted with enthusiasm by Mr Waggytail Jack
  4. Having working bike lights
  5. Finding the house keys where I think I left them
  6. Wearing a bra that I made myself
  7. The silence of the house at night
  8. The smell of freshly brewed coffee
  9. Listening to the rain
  10. An empty laundry basket

I'll be adding to the list next week. In the meantime, I may have some more sewing to show, if that is not too boring?

I also wanted to say hello to new followers, it is lovely to see you here. Thanks for all your nice comments, too. Every comment I read makes me skip with joy. Have a lovely day xx
