Three Things Thursday: 4 October 2017

My weekly exercise in gratitude – three things that are making me smile – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog [or Twitter account or Facebook page or diary or life in general] with happiness.

First, feathers. However many times I see a chicken moult and regrow her feathers, I never fail to be amazed that such beautiful complex things can emerge from bare skin. Here is Tiffany’s latest crop coming through:


Growing well

Second, old friends. I spent last weekend with three of the ladies I went to university with. We all did the same BSc course – Environmental Science – and next year will be the 30th anniversary of our graduation. We spent most of the weekend eating, drinking and talking – it was fab.

Third, a parcel. This is a late addition because it was only just delivered (#3 was going to be big cotton handkerchiefs, because I have a cold, but this made me smile more). I helped to crowdfund a book recently… and today’s parcel contained the book and extra goodies…

So, that’s what’s making me happy this week. How about you?
