Weekly Small Pleasures #7

Weekly Small Pleasures is a blog event hosted by Mani from A New Life Wandering. It’s a way to remember and take note of all the brilliant things in life every week. It’s all about those little things that (in Mani’s lovely words) ‘made you smile, made you laugh, made you do a happy dance, made your heart silently smile, or even made you cry for joy.’

I was ill for 2 whole weeks so since recovering I have had a delicious week where everything seems brighter, tastes better and feels brilliant. Here are some of the small pleasures – that were really big pleasures in my reality this week!

Good Sleeping

I love sleeping. Having flu meant I was having fever sweats and crazy violent dreams, so good sleeping was sparse. I slept for over 11 hours on the weekend and it was beautiful.

Cream Eggs

I couldn’t taste a thing for over 2 weeks. One day, I was sitting watching a film and decided to crack open a cream egg. The flavour flooded into my mouth with a sweet intensity. The taste buds were back. And what a treat for it to be my favourite Easter treat. My boyf went out and bought me 5 more to celebrate #Yes!!

The biggest dog

This enormous dog was so happy playing with his little buddy in Greenwich park. It really made me giggle to watch him.

It is spring and there are daffodils everywhere, making the place so colourful. They are also only one pound to buy, which means I can fill my room with fresh flower every week. Happy room.

I wouldn’t say I ‘like’ running – I regularly try and find ways to get out of it. But the truth is that it balances me and and makes me feel good afterwards. When I was recovered enough to run again, my whole body was smiling.

Hope you’ve had a happy and healthy week wherever you are.
