Little Joys From February

February Joys

My new pink leopard print cardigan. Bookshop wanders with an abundance of birthday book vouchers burning a hole in my pocket. Doorstop toasties from the local cafe. Peanut butter & honey on toast every morning. Baby babbles. Baby smiles. The inexplicable way the baby grins whenever he looks at the blind. Newborn fingers unfurling. StoryGraph to keep track of my absurd to-read pile. Snowdrops. Cakes & hot chocolate in a cosy cafe. Cold, bright, blue days. The new Bastille album. This Is Going To Hurt BBC drama. Sandi Toksvig Extraordinary Escapes. Day trips with my mum. Baby massage class. Reunions with the lovely NCT gang. Baby dungarees. COOK freezer meals. Booking a weekend away. Generous, gorgeous gifts from family & friends. Turning thirty. A fabulous birthday cake. The biggest box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates I ever did see. Discovering an excellent podcast and having four series to catch up on. The smell of freshly baked bread from the new bread machine. Those brief moments where we feel like we are nailing this parenting thing. Baby giggling for the first time. ❤️
