It's all about the little things

So I think this blog is going to be all about the little things that make me happy.
Well mostly because some big things just have to be shared too,
don't they?
Little, inconsequential things that maybe one takes for granted
but they actually make one happy.
Things like:
My morning cuppa - Tetleys' in a big pink mug.
My afternoon tea - Lady Grey in a vintage bone china cup and saucer.
The first plum of the season that I picked fat and juicy straight from the tree yesterday.
Getting comments on my first post - thank you, thank you, thank you.
The Amazon delivery containing that book, you know
the one that you've wanted to read for simply ages.
Discovering that this blog has followers - thank you, thank you, thank you.
Eating an egg laid by your very own hens.
That daisy in the lawn, Battenburgh cake and....
Oh so many things that make you happy.


  1. Ooh, Battenburg cake! Not available in France...

    We bought the boys some when we visited the UK last year. They quite liked it, but I guess they'd prefer a crepe with Nutella - we are a mixed culture family now!

    One thing that does make them very happy when we get back to the UK is to have a ceremonial fish and chip supper! We ate our annual one in slight drizzle on Edinburgh's Royal Mile a few weeks ago.

    Thanks so much for your anniversary wishes. We had a lovely anniversary - next year is a big one!

  2. How pretty is battenburg cake? I actually made some decs out of saltdough to looklike them too! Well just wanted to say hello, I'm a fellow newbie poster and have to agree with you...Its def all about the little things for me! In fact one of my fav songs is called 'the little things' by Colbie caillet!! Always makes me smile! Good luck with your blog and look forward to reading more x
