In honour of today's date.
Ten reasons to be cheerful.
1). It's Sunday.
2). The sun is shining.
3). My house and my garden smell of quinces.
4). I am reading the most wonderful book at the moment. One Fine Day by Mollie Panter Downes. I am enjoying it so much I don't want it to end.
5). There will be lamb and quince tagine for dinner with spiced pilaf.
6). There will be crème au chocolat for pud.
7). My younger son will surely stop drumming soon.
8). My daughter has made her bed.
9). My elder son has won an 'outstanding' award for his progress in sailing.
10). I managed to find ten things to pick in my garden. It was a struggle though.
