Anything small to celebrate today?

Well, no, not really. I've had another challenging week (Thanks, Parcelforce) and it's all been a bit glum. It's not as though anything bad has happened and I know that compared to many I lead a charmed life. I'm not waiting for my chance to walk through the Channel tunnel, for instance. I'll dig deep and see what I can come up with:
  • There's plenty of food coming home from the allotment
  • The gym where I teach on Tuesdays has taken to leaving us free cordial and water
  • The photo I bought at an exhibition last weekend has been delivered
Sorry, folks, will try harder next week.

Celebrate the Small Things  is a blog hop. Visit Lexa's Blog for the rules, and then post every Friday about something you're grateful  for that week. Originated by VikLit) and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog

  1. A writer I like from way back (Robert Raynolds) said 'The Wonder of Life is Composed Mostly of Trivia'. I think he's right.

  3. Sorry your work's a pain. I hope it lightens up. Congrats on food from the allotment and free cordials and water. I don't know what an allotment or a cordial are, but at least I know getting food and water is good! lol

    1. Bless you, Lexa. An allotment is a patch of land we lease from the council as a veg patch. Cordial is concentrated sweetened fruit juice that is diluted with water (or sparkling wine, if you're feeling decadent).
