Happy Blogoversary to Me!

My blog is one year old today. I umm-ed and I ahh-ed over how to mark this occasion and (after a little prompting by @DaisyCottageIRL on Twitter) I decided that I deserve a bunch of flowers!

It’s not thought-provoking or world-changing but it made me happy! I spent the morning working, then I baked, had lunch with a friend and am now off for half an hour digging the garden before I collect Bonus Boy. Simple pleasures to feed the soul which is what blogging has brought to me!

What is your favourite simple pleasure?
