It's been a bit of a tough week here at Pink Tea Towers (it's okay, I promise never to call myself that again). Nothing major, just lots and lots of stupid minor setbacks, as Homer Simpson would say.
So it seems like a good time to dedicate a post to some of the things I love.
Healthy seed bagels. Cupcakes. Chocolate and cake in all forms. Ireland, Dublin, cobblestones, small independent shops, finding bargains on market stalls. Old films and indie films. Teen books. Other kinds of books. Blogs. Herbal tea. Water. The sea, and living beside it. Moonwatching. Mandy Patinkin. The thick red curtains in the Savoy cinema that roll back before a show. Long emails from friends. Feeling healthy. Travelling. Good street food. Occasional walks. Parks. Ice cream at any time of the year. New blog followers (hi all, sorry if I haven't had a chance to visit you back yet, I promise I will!). The cinnamon buns in Simon's Coffee Shop in the George's Arcade. Stopping a stranger to ask where they bought something they're wearing and seeing their face light up. Packing to go on holidays (Seriously, I call myself the Packing Queeeeen and am considering having business cards made with all the extra eeeees).
Not a bad start, and not a raindrop on a rose or a mitten on a kitten to be seen.
