Looking on the bright side

Yesterday morning I had my first grocery delivery for three weeks and got everything I asked for. I’d been craving fresh vegetables and fell upon salad for lunch and greens with supper.
When I look out of one of my upstairs windows, I see in the distance a hedge of blackthorn in flower.
When I draw the curtains at dusk, the whole garden is glowing with pale primroses.
Yesterday evening, I watched my DVD of The Enchanted April. Perfect escapism.
I had to wake myself at midnight to book another delivery slot and spent much less time in a queue than I did last week.
This morning, I phoned about renewing my motor insurance. After reading all the emails the company has been sending me, I was expecting a very long wait. By great luck, I got straight through to speak to someone. This was a very pleasant surprise.
I’m about to go out into the garden without a coat on, to deadhead some more daffodils and do other small jobs.

Small things.
