The small things…

Thursday May 5, 2022

Today the small things matter. I had a cup of tea in bed… (something only available at weekends), I took the dog up to the Lickey Hills with a lovely view of Birmingham, I did the crossword in the sunshine and I planted spinach seeds in a tub. These are in stark contrast to the rest of my time: my Mum has just had a hip replacement, which has required a huge amount of care from myself and my sister. 

Easter holidays were dominated by this operation. I have seen my fiercely independent Mum become quite vulnerable and the stark contrast has been a challenge for me to take on board. But today I have a day off… and I am eating pizza made in the pizza oven my newly employed daughter bought for her Dad.

So what little thing has brightened your day?
