Little Joys | July


+ Swapping baked goods with my friend Jaine.
+ Sipping mulled cider with whiskey while watching nice films on Sunday evenings.
+ A lovely impromptu dinner at my neighbour's house.
+ The little gap between Theo's front teeth.
+ Lady dates to look forward to with friends.
+ Cheese, biscuits and semi-dried tomatoes on the table in the team room at work before my shift. I ate so many.
+ My fun friend Mary's Kickstarter campaign for her book.
+ A pile of thrifted books (recently: The Virigin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh, Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Snow Falling On Cedars by David Guterson and Generation X by Douglas Coupland).
+ Scented candles that make my house smell delicious.
+ Walking up the hill to West Launceston with a friend and admiring the view of the city.
+ Bare limbed trees reaching for the sky.
+ Cardamon.
+ The Chat 10 Looks 3 podcast by Annabel Crabb & Leigh Sales.
+ The odd people I observe at work who make going to work feel more worthwhile.
+ French Earl Grey.
+ Buying a $4 radio alarm clock from the opshop and waking up to the radio (a strategy I'm trying to implement to deter myself from pressing snooze a dozen times).
