Small Things

In this dreary, post-festivities first week of January, it feels so very important to take some time to seek out the good things. So pour yourself a coffee, take a seat on the sofa, and spend a few moments with me counting the Small Things. What’s bringing a bit of extra cheer and magic to your week?

Here are a few of my ‘Small Things’ from the last fortnight:

*The January issue of Glamour, pleasingly filled with positivity, strong women and colourful clothes. I love the article from French-born Garance Dore, author of Love Style Life, the interview with Star Wars‘ Daisy Ridley, and Fearne Cotton’s new column.

*Back to work organisation. There is something strangely reassuring about getting out the work-friendly natural nail polish, checking the gym bag’s in order, putting together the next day’s lunch and making use of new stationery.

*The Star Wars film was so good! Cinema trips are just the best, and I love the small, independent ones in our area.

*Catching up with a friend before going back to work.

*Walks in the few dry, sunny spells we’ve had.

*I’m still smiling about the time spent with family over Christmas.

*Reading Jesus Feminist, by Sarah Bessey. This is just so refreshing and affirming.

*Kettle Chips. Sorry – I know it’s January and we’re all meant to be dieting and all that, but these are so good!

*Ice Skating at Somerset House with lovely friends.

*Lemonade. I’m not normally a fan of fizzy drinks but lately this seems to add a bit of sparkle to the dark evenings.

(Forgive the phone snaps this week – I keep forgetting to take my camera out!)
