1. The Mother being all excited about buying clothes for herself.
2. Having a food parcel packed up for me by my mother -- there is ham and tangerines and salad and some rhubarb pudding and a big piece of cake (this is supposed to be for work).
3. Trying on my bridesmaid dress and discovering that it still fits; and that the bride and groom approve of it; and that it makes me smile every time I catch sight of myself in the mirror.
