Small Pleasures

On the weekend we embarked on a road trip to Toora for a family get together. My sister in law Kerry introduced me to a few things- her first crocheted granny square (yay!) and a book by Maeve Haran “Small Pleasures to save your life“.

It is often the small things from which you derive pleasure  in the midst of a crazy day. Of the various ones in the book, ‘good bread'(I love my bread!), ‘matching underwear’ and ‘holding a small child’s hand’ were my favourites.

For me, I was very lucky to have an entire weekend of small pleasures.

Stopping off at Tooradin for lunch at the Pelican Cafe and a quick dive into the discount bookshop much to the kid’s delight.

Drinking port and toasting marshmallows by the fire (it was too dark and my hands were full :))

Drinking a very good bottle of wine, in celebration of Max.
