Information needed, please!

 I've had my regular mediaction delivered for yonks.  I just order on line from the GP who authorises it and sends the script, also on line, to my chosen pharcmay which for many years has been the Co-op.  Until recently I was very happy with the service but it has been reorganised and I am now distinctly unhappy.  It takes over a week to be delivered and they don't tell me when they can't supply something.  At the moment beither of those is a major problem as I am well organised to cope, but there may come a time when I won't be as able.

I've had a flier from Royal Mail offering a similar service and I wondered of any of my readers use it.  If you do, or if you have done, could you comment below as to what the service is like.  I would be very grateful!

Life's little pleasures: coffee

 In several years I have written January posts about life's little pleasures and I want to do that again this year.  

At the moment I am enjoying two small pleasures which I enjoy almost every day - a cup of coffee and some thinking time.

I sometimes kid myself that the first coffee of the day is essential but I know I am kidding myself.  All I need is a drink of water, but I am able to have a rich, freshly-made cup of black coffee.  Many people can't afford the coffee or don't have time to make it or enjoy it.

I have three cups spaced through most mornings but it's that first cuppa which is the most special.  There's something comforting about the smell, the warmth, the taste which sets me up for the day.  I can sit and ruminate, plan the day. remember yesterday and just let my mind wander as I sip my brew.  

It's good to start my day with an attitude of gratitude.
