Simple Pleasures

Today is the first time I've felt able to take my doggie out for a walk since hurting my back recently, caused I believe, from a mix of over zealous hula hooping and getting stuck on a style too high for me! 

The sun was bright, the sky blue and the air crisp and cool. The sound of the wind blowing through the trees creating an orchestra of eerie yet comforting musical notes. 

It felt WONDERFUL. I'd missed it.

We didn't go far as the fields around me are rather boggy after all the rain we've been having, plus I didn't relish the thought of being pulled over in the mud by an over exuberant puppy! (this has happened)

It was a JOY. Pure and simple as that and it really set me up for the day.

As for the rest of today I'll be inviting in the rest of the wonderful people who will be joining the Mini Doodleicious Exploration which starts on Sunday. If this speaks to you, you can join us by clicking on this link. There are just a few tickets left. 

Friday nights have started to become Curry Night in our house so tonight I'm going to be making Murgh tikka makhani from Floyds India. A gift of a cook book actually from my sister after spending time travelling around India in my ooh lets think - how old was I then? Must have been in my 20s! I'd love to revisit India and stay on a house boat in Kerala....

How about you - what are you up to today and what simple pleasures are you enjoying?

On the menu tonight....
I love hearing from you so let me know your thoughts ;-)

Have a GREAT weekend!

  1. I was working today and at one point I put on a podcast: Rhod Gilbert highlights on BBC Radio Wales. Had a good laugh at that. I went for a walk into town at lunchtime, because I've just realised I need to get outside at least once during the working day, otherwise I get a bit sluggish mid-afternoon. Walking home was a simple pleasure. So grateful I don't have to drive every day, or get a train like I used to. x
