Three Things Thursday: 4 August 2016

As usual I’m joining with Emily of Nerd in the Brain (and others) for Three Things Thursday’. As she says…

*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*

First, a new (sort of) table. For ages we have been searching for a second hand bistro table to go in the limery. We found lots of table and chair sets, but we didn’t need chairs; we found very expensive old tables; we found tables needing a significant amount of renovation; we found wooden tables… but nothing just right. We could have bought new, but we really wanted not to add to the ‘stuff’ in the world. Finally, on ebay, we spotted a company selling refurbished catering equipment… including bistro tables. It is perfect…


Second, monkey cups! Until the other day I was pretty convinced that my monkey cup pitcher plant was not very happy as it didn’t seem to be producing pitchers. However, when one of the tomato plants fell over, the pitcher plant got covered in compost so I had to move it and clean it off. And when I took it out of its corner, there at the back was one big pitcher and one developing one. Clearly it’s happier than I thought.

Third, finally reaching Mornington Crescent. Now I’m pretty sure that only a small proportion of my readers will understand why this made me so happy. If you do, then you are probably smiling too; if you don’t then just accept that it’s the main ambition of fans of a Radio 4 show called I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue sometimes referred to as ISIHAC.


So that’s it for this week. What are you feeling grateful for?

ADDENDUM: Since the questions have already started, I’d better say that you can read about the joke that is Mornington Crescent HERE.
