1. Sun after rain and the way it makes everything look, inside and out. Glittery.
2. A thrown together lunch which was surprisingly delicious: soup to use up a bag of on-the-turn spinach and some very stale bread, toasted. Also, that pink and green look jolly nice together.
3. Playing hooky. Abandoning all WIPs for the lure of another chevron pattern. That soft pink with the dark grey...gorgeous.
4. Hot sauce.
My local supermarket, despite being the size of Luxembourg, has always had the most rubbish range of "exotic" products. I remember a time when they didn't even stock coconut milk. Waitrose it is not. But now, they have a "World Foods" aisle and it's a treasure trove of interesting things with colourful labels and brands I've never heard of. I could browse it for hours, and do. Food shopping often makes me happy.
And the hot sauce was fantastic on my fish finger sandwich, and also on another lunch that used up some dubious looking veg and a opened packet of noodles I found in the cupboard which was annoying me because it kept falling over and scattering bits of dried noodle all over the place. So I ate them.
It occurs to me that one of the best things about being at home is the things I can make and eat for lunch. It is definitely my favourite meal of the day because I can please myself and I'm not in a hurry. Yes, lunch makes me happy too. Make that number five.
