I thought I’d tie in my Friday 5 with Listography, which has made a sudden reappearance over at Kate Takes 5 this week (yay!), and the subject is Simple Pleasures.
The view from my office, with its ever-changing sky. It’s responsible for an awful lot of day-dreaming, as I mentioned earlier this week. Lovely to see some blue after such a long, wet winter, though.
A hot shower with my current favourite products. A five minute pick-me-up if ever there was one. I’ve recently taken to mid-afternoon showering before the school run, as it really seems to wake me up and give me another lease of life in those early-evening, homework-nagging, getting-dinner-on-the-table hours which usually see me at my lowest ebb.
A ten minute sit down for breakfast with my book. I usually eat breakfast in between doing other things, a bite here, and a bite there, but when I do take the time to actually sit down and enjoy it, it feels like a real indulgence. I should take those ten minutes more often.
Clean sheets. Oh, how I love you. There is just nothing nicer. That is all.
Weekends! End of the working week, and time for a couple of days to take things slower, spend time with the family, and have fun. And hubby cooks at the weekend, too, so a break from cooking for me!
