Things That Have Recently Made Me Smile

  • Late night city walks
  • The slightly smokey smell of September
  • Finally being warm because it's Autumn and I don't have to pretend anymore that the weather is summery and wear skirts and sandals
  • My new rust-coloured coat
  • Watching bad television online whilst in the bath (glass of wine optional but always appreciated)
  • Using the fireplace again
  • Woolen jumpers
  • My bicycle--avec recently pumped tires
  • Walking through Radcliffe Square in the evenings and getting to think, I live here!
  • Lazy, lounge-y Sundays with good friends and good food
  • Knowing my neighbors (even just a little) and passing gardening equipment over the fence
  • Wearing The Man's scarf to work
  • The way my coat flutters when I'm cycling
  • Chocolate in the afternoon
  • Being snuggled up when it's cold outside
