Little things I am unwrapping today:

A sunny space in my bedroom to curl up with my tea

Advent calendars

Christmas carols

Fairy lights

Freshly baked cinnamon buns

Pretty new luggage tags

A wicker star on my front door

French tips


Well stocked biscuit tins

Sage green satin ribbon

Date night

Crisp white bedlinen

M2's pure voice singing in Latin

A jaunty red lantern

Chamomile and lavender tea

The bird that whistles outside in a way I just
have to whistle back

Scented furniture polish

Coconut milk and coriander curry

Magnolia hand soap and cream in kitchen

The Book Depository

Jaffa Orange Curd on crunchy gluten-free toast

Wooden pegs that keep M3 quiet for an hour

Letting dough rise outside instead of in a hot-water cupboard

Butterscotch baking drops

Discovering new candy and pretending it's fruit

I am cradling the tiny pleasures with luminous delight,
like tiny fireflies that glow in the dark,
one gratitude fluttering to another.

I love these little snippets that you unwrap for us. It gives more of a picture of your life over the sea than you realise. I so enjoy "keeping up" with you and hearing about Amy and her adventures!
