Three Things Thursday: 19 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,  a bit of yarn storming. Welsh cob and adjacent bench in Aberaeron. Complete with strategically placed pompoms!

Second, sending a gift (I didn’t have to sit on this one!)

I hope this will make the recipient smile too

Third, cheese… lots of cheese… that we made!

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

Three Things Thursday: 12 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, ethical coffee. Every two weeks I receive a (completely biodegradable) package of coffee. Our postie loves delivering it because it fills his van with a wonderful aroma, and I love drinking it and reading about the producers that it comes from. The company who sell it, Roasting House,  is able to support small-scale coffee growers because it’s a club not a shop, so they don’t have to guarantee large stocks. This is the latest; just read what they say about the project…

Coffee or Cocaine?

 

Second, more socialising. Last Saturday we attended a Tweet-up (meet-up for people who know each other through Twitter) of Welsh smallholders. Yes, I know we don’t exactly have a smallholding, but we have the ethos. These get-togethers are always good – great food, lovely company and the opportunity to see someone else’s set up.

Third, sitting on a parcel. This made me smile because it was so silly. I had a parcel to send to the USA yesterday. I packed it very carefully, but I wasn’t sure that it would be quite thin enough to go as a ‘large letter’ rather than a ‘small parcel’. Since the difference is about £5, it’s quite an important distinction and it was dimensions not weight that was critical. So, I drove to the Post Office whilst sitting on the parcel… and it worked! Sometimes there is a simple solution.

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