1. A Trip To the Library
I just love the library – such an amazing free resource that I don’t make nearly enough use of. Coming out with a pile of books to read always makes me happy.
My friend Lisa brought me these two weeks ago when she and her family came over for dinner, and they are still looking (and smelling) absolutely gorgeous.
It was Parents’ Evening at school yesterday, and all the teachers said such nice things about William – not only about his work, but about him as a person, too. “He’s a pleasure to teach” and “William is a potentially brilliant student” were two of my favourites. I’m a very proud mummy.
4. My Own Company
Ashley was working away this week and although it’s always lovely to have him back home again, sometimes it’s nice to have the TV remote and the bed all to myself, and not to have to cook proper dinners. I love my own company and could quite happily go for days without feeling the need to see another living soul!
5. An Old Friend
I was tracked down on Facebook this week by a childhood friend who lived up the road from me when we were in primary school. We were great friends until her family moved away, and it was lovely to hear from her and exchange all our news from the last 35 years!
