Celebrate the Small Things again

Well, here we are again. Time to Celebrate the Small Things.

When I was driving to a nearby village this afternoon to teach my yoga class, as I turned round a corner a red kite flew up from the road right in front of me. It was an amazing sight - and to think that these birds were once endangered. They are more common than sparrows round our way. We often get them swooping over our suburban garden. I don't know what this particular bird had just had for its lunch, but it had left behind an enormous pile of feathers.

My son's band were on BBC Introducing again this week. The DJ (are they still called that?) said, 'We LOVE this song.' The song in question is 'Winnebago' and you can hear it here.

On the writing front, I submitted an article to someone on Monday and got an acceptance email this morning. Result!

Why not join us in Celebrating the Small Things? This is a bloghop instigated by VikLit on her blog 'Scribblings of an Aspiring Author'. Details are here.

  1. Congrats on the article, and that's awesome about your son's band. Sounds like seeing that bird would be amazing, and kind of amusing? Or disturbing, depending on what kinds of feathers it left behind!

    1. I'd rather be the kite than the pigeon any day.
