The simple things...


By fluff


I just wanted to write that today I’ve found the simple things in life are the best ever.
We are having pork chops with little new potatoes cooked with mint from the garden, runner beans picked from my brother’s row & a nice bottle of wine to wash it down.
My first gladioli are out, the first tomatoes are ripening, there’s a pair of gentle collared doves pecking at the lawn & the cats are doing figures of eight around my legs for their supper.

My husband had a phonecall to say he’d got the job he went for last week after 6 months of searching…& I took the message so was able to give him the good news while he was in the middle of a forest on a mountain bike ride…you could hear the whoops of joy echoing round the trees!!

My elderly mother for once did not say ‘I didn’t think you were coming’ but thanked me for cooking her meal & even noticed the flowers I’d arranged for her.

Oh…& the sun shone ALL day…just wonderful.

Have a nice evening everyone.xx
