Simple Pleasures.

The smell of home.

Thick custard and perfect apple crumble.
A log fire on a chilly October afternoon.

The village bakery, stacked with bread rolls.
Sore lungs, aching hips, a serious sense of achievement.

Turning off the 6am alarm and swapping a morning run for more duvet time.
The smell of roasting vegetables.

Finding out that I am doing fine just as I am.
Running in the dark.

Being greeted by a handsome fellow runner (and speeding up as we approach so I don't look slow!!).
Playing a Bach Sonata on my flute.

Sitting together quietly and listening to a new CD.

An email from my Dad; making me smile with only two sentences.

Lying in a hot lavendar bath, candles lit and Beethoven crescendoing through the house.

Cadbury's Roses.

It's been a good week! What simple pleasures did you enjoy this week?


  1. I love your list. So many simple things that make us happy, it's what life is all about.
