Its funny what can sometimes just pop into your head when you're least expecting it...Perhaps it was the fact that Hubby and I will soon be celebrating a milestone wedding anniversary; or perhaps it was because I have been thinking about my three girls rather a lot lately for one reason or another. Perhaps it was both of these, but also the fact that I seem to be more content these days and to be made happy by the little things, that I suddenly started thinking about that cute cartoon naked couple from the 1970's who were always finding ways to describe what 'love is...'!
Do you remember them? (Were they featured in 'Jackie' magazine perhaps? - I did buy a copy of that teen mag now and then.) I'd not thought about these little characters for years and how incredible that the brain has the capacity to store such random memories of the teeniest things...and that something can trigger that memory, or otherwise it will stay firmly locked away and not remembered.
I'm not really sure where I'm going with this, but it got me thinking that nowadays it can be just the smallest of things that make me happy with my lot.
Today it was 'dresser love'!
It took me most of the day, in between some lovely customers, to price up and arrange all the new stock that I found over the weekend. Having the shelves of the dresser restocked with all the cheerful floral plates was all I needed to make it a good day. The fact that once again I had to do the supermarket shop on my way home this evening, cook the family meal once I was home and then try to finish off the ironing that I started weeks ago, didn't come into it...
