Coffee at the garden centre
whatever time of day
blondes, brunettes and auburn hair
hides ‘fifty shades of grey’.
Getting home just before the rain started again.
First flower on my mammillaria cactus.
Such joy today. A pait of wrens, hailstones dancing and a rainbow.
Reading through a whole month of joy.
A couple of hours with my colouring books.
Baking with my Grandson. Cookies and a Victoria sponge with fresh cream.
First snowdrops blooming at Martin Mere.
A full moon in a star lit sky.
Seeing my little cousin walk (on video) just before her first birthday.
(First cousin twice removed)
A coaltit having breakfast with the usual suspects.
A bowl of homemade winter vegetable and barley broth for tea.
Watching the moon rise and the sun set in a clear sky.
A fuel bill considerably less than expected.
White turbines on a snow topped hill against a blue sky.
A hard frosty morning.
Waterstones book shop with a fistful of gift vouchers.
One of nature’s balancing acts. Snow on twigs.
Getting the price of my broadband knocked down
Water bubbling and frothing it’s way down a gully on Darwen Moor in the sunshine
Finishing long overdue paperwork
Heather flowering in the garden
Hazel catkins swinging in the breeze
blowing tufts of cottongrass
to quarter past three
At last the sun’s come out.
Choosing which poems to read at tomorrow’s lunch club.
Seeing the first hawthorn leaves of 2016.
A lovely meal cooked by my smashing daughter, just ready after my work at Martin Mere.

Joy is a friendly optician when your glasses are broken so you can see the flower on the end of the satsuma.
