Reasons to be cheerful number one...
A date night.
When our sons were at home we seldom went out but were always "around" even though they were in and out a lot; like the figures in those little weather houses! But now, with two sons no longer living here and Daley working nights much of the time, our evenings are our own.
So on Friday Steve came home early and we went out. We ate an early supper - Thai - it was lovely - never had Thai food before and then went to the theatre no less! A London Opera Company came to a neighbouring town and off we went.
I have not been to the theatre for many many years. I haven't worn a floaty skirt for many many years. I wore shoes that clickety clacked (or was that my knees? lol!!!!!) I carried a bag that was little more than ornament!!
Oh it was all just so grown up! I don't often do grown up.
Reasons to be cheerful number two...
The weather remains hot and still the sweet peas grow.
Reasons to be cheerful number three...
I have a new obsession - colourful napkins. I look out for reasonably priced ones wherever I go.
Yes, I know I should not be buying paper products and yes I do have a few cloth napkins but life is short and bright paper napkins make me happy and yes I am shallow, I have had to learn to live with this and so must my friends!! I have started to set the table early in the day ready for supper and I smile each and every time I pass it! Little things .... eh?
