It’s the little things
12th April 2016
Around this time last year I wrote a Weekend Blog post about how easy it is to forget about the simple things that make life truly great.
In the last few months I have really started to appreciate the little things in life, even the most average, mundane things about life. Today I thought I’d share some with you…
I love how the light pours in through the side window of our house and peeps through the bedroom door on the weekends. It’s so lovely to wake up like this.
I also love that it is now still light when I leave work. It always feels like a drag the weekend the clocks go forward but I’m oh so grateful to welcome in the longer days.
I love having a cup of tea in the morning. I have one every morning, without fail. Most mornings it’s rushed, and I drink it down quickly as I get ready for work. But on the weekends I take the time to enjoy every sip while I wake up.
This weekend I even sat out on my patio to drink my tea as the weather was so lovely.
I love buying flowers for the house. When I moved into the house my mum bought me a vase (because I hadn’t owned one previously) and a beautiful bunch of flowers. Now I like to pick up a fresh bunch every other week on my way home from work and display them in our living room window. I’m also excited to see the flowers we planted in the garden grow.
I love discovering new food dishes and I’m currently loving snacking. I started up my Graze box subscription again because I had a load of discount codes, and although I probably won’t continue with it for much longer it is helping me to think up new ideas for snacks.
I’m currently enjoying cracker-bread with a sweet chilli dip. It’s so cheap and easy to prepare.
I love baking on a Sunday afternoon. It makes me feel about 20 years older than I actually am but I just find it so therapeutic. Last weekend I baked my favourite chocolate cookies. I just love the way it makes the house smell.
I love the view from our spare room (my office), particularly when the sunset creates beautiful colours in the sky. It makes Liverpool look more dreamy, if that’s even possible.
Tell me what really simple things about life you love!
