I'm writing this feeling ever so lazy still sat in bed on a Sunday morning! (Ok, I have already gotten up and put a wash on because the guilt was too much.) I'm preparing for night shifts next week, so today's a day for a lazy morning, as late a night as I can manage and then hopefully getting some sleep during the day tomorrow before working the night. Anyway, that's next week. Here are the little things I've loved from this week:
A Saffy-style welcome home. I went home on Saturday to go for lunch with my mum and of course to see my beautiful little terrier, Saffy. They always say dogs give the best welcome and it's so true. Saffy's getting to be more of a "mature lady" in age nowadays, but there's still something so puppy-ish about her whirling tail and flying paws as she hurries to say hello when I'm back!
A live orchestral performance. One of my closest friends plays in an orchestra and she invited me down to Paddington for their autumn concert this weekend. They played some of my absolute favourite classical music - The Nutcracker Suite - which never fails to make me smile. There's something so enthralling about being up close to an orchestra and seeing how every sound you hear is coming from the people and instruments in front of you!
The patient who, upon me asking how she was that morning, replied "all the better for seeing you!". I know I shouldn't have favourite patients, but she's working her way towards it!
Matchmakers. They were on sale in Tesco and I may have bought myself a box. Or two.
Being able to fill my fridge with fresh food. Basically, I'd had a faulty fridge since moving in to my flat and finally it got replaced the other week. Since then, I've been loving being able to buy lots of fruit and vegetables without worrying about them going off. It's also meant I can prepare my lunches for the week! (I've also been enjoying the ability to have fridge cold chocolate too...)
Jadu Tea's Spa Afternoon loose leaf tea*. This was sent to me a while ago and I've only just gotten around to trying this particular one. It's minty and refreshing and I have been enjoying it by the potful, sipping it from my beautiful Bombay Duck tea cups. It's a beautiful blend of spearmint, Chinese Oolong tea and nettle, dandelion, burdock and milk thistle.
What have you been up to this week?
