Weekly Bird in the hand

Here is this week's bird in the hand - the things I'm grateful for:

  • Meeting friends whom you haven't seen for a year but instantly reconnecting like you saw each other just a few days ago
  • Bumping into people you haven't seen in 15 years and seeing the joy in their faces
  • Being able to laugh about death and funerals!
  • The beauty of architecture - we went to Malmesbury this week and saw Malmesbury Abbey which is a wonderful alchemy of Norman and Gothic Architecture. Fascinating to see the changes over the hundreds of years.
  •  British foods that we have missed in a few months (like all the pork pie John has been eating this past week and all the gooseberry and rhubarb yoghurt I've been eating!!!).
  • Umbrellas!
Hope your week has been a good one!

The bird and hand weren't mine. I found the photo on Flickr. It's lovely isn't it.
