I wrote recently about my lovely book Simple Pleasures:little things that make life worth living and today has been a day for appreciating a few simple pleasures for cold days.
1. I've been enjoying the view from my window. The starlings have been squabbling, passing children have been waving and I'm warm and happy indoors. Bliss.
2. Comfort food has been on the menu today. Casserole for lunch and there will be soup for supper. Simple homely food to warm both body and soul.
3. The joy of making things. I made my soup and casserole but I also knitted and I sewed. Creativity is always a pleasure but not regretting being confined indoors is hugely helped by doing something wonderful with the time.
