A LITTLE FRIVOLITYWhen I write my Five Things Friday posts I usually pick something I've been thinking about - some are even a little bit deep. Today's is much more frivolous - I've just picked five little things that have added a smile to my life lately.
I love finding a decent TV show - it's been a while! I started watching "This Is Us" on catch up TV the other week and loved it from the moment the whole thing came together at the end of Episode 1. I love that it's not reality TV, I love that it has a good vibe to it, I love that it won't give me nightmares, and I love that it's a series and not a one off.
I love the new little boy I'm mentoring this year at our local primary school. He just turned six and is so excited to see me arrive for our one hour together each week. Now I just need to find interesting things for us to do each visit - a fun challenge.
I love holding a book in my hand and that I get to borrow brand new books from the library for free. I just finished "Echoes in Death" by JD Robb - brand spanking new and the frugalista in me enjoyed the fact that I could read it and then it goes on to the next person, and the next, ad infinitum.
I love that my niece has just moved into a house bordering an old fig tree - nothing beats a nectarine or a plum - except a ripe and juicy fig. She's managed to pick me a few here and there that the birds haven't eaten - bliss!
5. THE A TO Z CHALLENGE
I love that I'm about to tackle the 2017 A to Z Challenge - my second year doing it. I swore not to do it again because it was such a time sucker, but I'm all fired up again and ready to get those 26 posts written for April - I hope you'll follow along with my series.
