Tidied, what happened next and gifts of the magi.

1. The town under a spring mist looks like a pile of junk in the corner of the room covered by a piece of voile.

2. A couple of winters ago I was temping in an office. A week into my stint the guy at the desk next to mine came back from his holiday looking as if he had discovered some wonderful truth. He kept telling us: 'I'd never have done it before, but now I can only say, if there's something you want, go for it. Do it.' He had fallen in love over the internet with a girl from Cape Town, and he had taken a three-week holiday to meet her for the first time. Yesterday on my way to work, I saw him -- and a girl -- on the other side of the crossing. I couldn't catch her voice over the traffic -- I hope she had a South African accent.

3. They bring some wine, and a chocolate tart, which are both really needed by me.


  1. I really love the concept for your blog, it's great to focus on the good things in life. I really believe it makes our life better!

    I love the story about your co-worker! I forced my sister to sign up with eharmony (she really wanted to, but didn't have the courage to do it by herself...)and she ended up meeting her current boyfriend. They're talking about marriage and she says she's never met someone she was so in-tune with.

    Thanks for adding sun to my day!

  2. 4. Big bright fresh strawberries in season, looking so pretty in their little plastic baskets, and smelling so heavenly. Looking forward to some with heavy cream.
