i like that this is my 25th ‘the small things‘ post on the 25th day of the month. things like that are satisfying. here’s to many more. i hope i can encourage at least one person reading these to appreciate the small things that make your days worthwhile.

– sunny days that aren’t too hot, and are accompanied by a strong breeze.
– finishing preparing my newsletter well in advance.
– when allergy tablets actually work all day.
– my once-every-couple-of-months can of lilt.
– no more tooth issues since the extraction a couple months ago.
– the fact we’ll be going to tenby soon.
– feeling better after a weeks worth of stomach bug.
– bergamot scented candles. bergamot scented anything, really.
– sitting silently and still in amongst trees, blowing gently in the breeze.

– eating a twister lolly at the perfect time. so refreshing.
– when i’m busy or there’s noise around, and i momentarily forget about my tinnitus.
