I started to think about what this week’s small pleasures had been on Sunday morning. It hadn’t been a particularly nice week, and nothing stuck out as being particular pleasurable. Work is still hectic, the weather wasn’t great and I got news of the death of a former student of mine. He was a young man who held such promise, and it was so tragic to see him gradually fade away through cancer at the age of 26.
But then today, Monday, I realised there had quite a few small pleasures, starting with these tulips in the Botanic Gardens
Spending Saturday afternoon baking was definitely a pleasure – follow the link to see what I made.
The sun came out on Sunday, so we drove over to one of our favourite spots, Lake Ferry, where we had lunch. It is a place that always lifts the spirits. I had the whitebait fritter which was so good and served on toasted sourdough bread.

You can just see the snow capped mountains in the distance if you look carefully
My shoulder is improving
I started X-tend Barre classes again! Just once a week, but it is good to be back. And my shoulder has suddenly become much more mobile.
Thanks yet again to Mani over at A New Life Wandering for the idea.
Check out Middle Europe as well for their small pleasures.
