It’s nearly midweek – which means tomorrow night I will let you guys know what this weekends Simple Pleasure will be 🙂 I have a few ideas I’m tossing around…. (Oooh what’ll it be…what’ll it be?!)
I just want to say thank you to all you wonderful, lovely people who have read/followed/commented on my blog in the week since I started it. I am thrilled you find it both entertaining and inspiring.
I have been amazed by how many people have emailed/approached me, agreeing with the principles behind this blog, that we have lost touch with the simplest things in life that potentially bring us the greatest pleasure. Like that feeling you get when you’re at the beach or cooking a delicious meal, trying something for the very first time or surveying your hard work in the garden. It can be the smallest thing but the reward/sense of satisfaction we get is amazing!
I started back at work yesterday (groan), and besides the basics like trying to remember the code to the photocopier, ( I know it has a 4 in it somewhere….) it’s been a little hard to adjust to that feeling of being ‘trapped’ inside while outside the sun shines (finally), birds sing and kids cycle back and forth past my office, smelling of sunscreen and wearing the innocent smiles of the truly free.
Jealous? Me? Well maybe a little……
So I know that come this weekend I will be exhausted from my first week back at work, and definitely ready for the next rejuvenating Simple Pleasure from the book 🙂
I’ll let you know tomorrow night what I’ve chosen!
