More simple pleasures…


In the last while I have really been enjoying some nice everyday things. Life can have so many ups and downs. There can be periods of great excitement but also of stagnation. Sometimes, despite the whirlwind that may or may not be going on all around, it can be nice to really just take a moment to enjoy the simple things. Here is what I have been appreciating lately:

  • Slipping into a well made bed at night and enjoying the cool sheets.
  • Checking my pregnancy app each week to see what size the baby is (blueberry then peach then apple etc…)
  • Cold chocolate soya milk.
  • Spending time with family.
  • Fragrant plants and flowers.
  • Cool wind and rain after a hot stretch.
  • Catching up on tv.
  • Chatting and gossiping with my sister about other siblings.
  • Playing with children.
  • A simple healthy and flavourful Indian dish called rajma (kidney bean stew) with rice.
  • Air conditioning.
  • Seeing my husband’s cute face on Skype or Whatsapp video calls.
  • Showers and that nice clean feeling.
  • The healthy hair feeling after a new haircut.
  • Working on the computer with the tv on in the background.
