Simple things


Christina at Soul Aperture (whom I recently discovered thanks to rock chick julochka) invited everyone to post a list of simple things that bring you joy.

So here is my list of simple things that delight my senses:

hearing

:: the sound of my baby sleeping

:: the noise rain makes when it falls on our funny corrugated conservatory roof

:: hearing I love you, spontaneously

:: the sound of my sweet baby's laughter

smell

:: the smell of home baked cakes

:: the smell of freshly ground coffee beans

:: the smell of rain on hot pavements in the summer

:: the smell of lavender

:: honeysuckle

taste

:: chocolate

:: an egg dip dip sandwich, eaten on a picnic blanket with my baby and my hubbie, surrounded by nature

:: proper fish and chips, soaked in vinegar, eaten straight out of the paper wrapping on a windswept beach in Scotland

:: strawberries grown in our garden and popped into our mouths as soon as they turn red

touch


:: the feel of cool cotton sheets on a balmy summer night

:: a kiss stolen from my babe as he sleeps

:: when my hubbie cuddles in to me when we're sleeping

sight

:: an egg dip dip sandwich, eaten on a picnic blanket with my baby and my hubbie, surrounded by nature (ok, I cheated bit and included this twice but that's because it brings me so much joy)

:: my baby running barefoot through grass

:: the sea - just seeing it calms me

:: my two favourite boys just being together
