This week’s prompt for The Great Book of Lists are the little things you love…
1. A hug from my wife after a rubbish day at work.
2. Walking my eldest son (aged 6) to school, holding his hand, talking about everything and nothing.
3. Giving my youngest son (aged 2) the “prompt” line from his favourite book (Ten Little Pirates), and smiling as he says “no ship, no food, no way home”. Every single time.
4. Writing a line of poetry that makes me smile, or makes me feel … hopefully others will share this feeling.
5. Emptying the fluff filter of the tumble dryer, while the fluff is still warm. Seriously. I love this. This is like the best bit of owning a cat, without the mewling for food every time you walk through the kitchen.
6. Crossing things off lists.
Write week 2 list post.
7. The first “like” on any blog post I publish. I fret incessantly until “someone” in the world has read my words, and taken the trouble to click on the “like” icon. Only when I get that email ping do I allow myself to relax. I’m not at all sure this is healthy!
