Cherish the Simple Things

2013-11-03 10.24.21Sometimes, you just have to stop, pause for breath and breathe in some fresh air.

This weekend Mr T and I found ourselves with “nothing to do”, by which I mean no work commitments, no family outings, no plans made of any kind. We woke up on Saturday to glorious sunshine and over coffee and breakfast agreed to head out for a walk.

We pulled on our boots, and as we live so close to Delamere Forest that seemed like the obvious destination. We walked, we admired the brave “Hell Runners”, caked in mud. We dodged bikes, toddlers and friendly dogs.

We cam home refreshed, a pocket full of the last sweet chestnuts of the season and a determination to get out and “do nothing” more often.

An afternoon of gardening followed, we lit a fire and drank mugs of tea until it was dark enough to light some fireworks we had lurking in the back of the shed. We lit sparklers and watched the stars.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that it’s not “things” that make us truly happy, but “simple things”, like love, friendship and time spent together.
