lots and lots of photographs (over 400) ordered and printed off - we are not good at doing this. Then I thought how much I love to look at photo albums at my parent's house and realised I should be making albums for my children to look at.
pink rhubarb with Greek yogurt. Just a pity rhubarb makes your teeth feel furry.
flowers in the front garden - I particularly love Aquilegia.
rescuing a baby bird on the school run one morning. There was a dead fledgling and a live one on the pavement and a bird in the tree making a fuss. I quickly googled what to do and the website I came across said to quickly scoop it up and put in back into the tree. Apparently birds do not have a good sense of smell, so the fact I'd touched it shouldn't matter to it's parents. I don't know if I did the right thing, but I couldn't just leave it on the pavement.
getting out on my bike, in particular cycling to the gym. It takes the same amount of time as driving and there's no need to do any cardio when I get there, which is always a bonus.
a beautiful, huge, horse chestnut tree we see on our walk to school.
anticipating being on that beach again, next week. Wish hard for some dry weather for us, won't you?
Truthfully, these have been a hard couple of weeks for me. May used to be one of my favourite months. Now it is my least favourite, containing, as it does, the anniversaries of my Granddad's and brother's deaths. I carry on trying to notice the small pleasures in life but it hardly makes a dent sometimes.
