Things I Love Thursday

One of my favourite blogs to read, also happens to be written by one of my favourite friends! Most Thursdays, she does a TILT post...Things I Love Thursday. Such a lovely idea, and as I have been reading Sarah Ban Breathnach's wonderful Simple Abundance again, and thinking of things I am grateful for before I go to sleep, this is good practise! Although I am going to try and make my TILT posts about things that give me joy, rather than just things I am grateful for (although the two lists would often be very similar!).

So, without further ado, pour yourself a cup of tea, and enjoy my very first TILT!

I love...

...the first day of a new month. Wondering a little wistfully where September went to, but adoring writing out 'Thursday 1st October 2009' just to see the words on the page

...the bunch of pale pink, shocking pink and deep purple dahlias that my Mum bought for me at the WI market this morning

...wearing my new damson coloured tights with a purple jumper, black skirt and silver ballet shoes...and a man stopping me in the street to say he loved my look!

...a hot shower that makes the whole bathroom steamy new fringe

...the prospect of an early night

...logging on to blogger to make a little post and finding such kind comments waiting for me

Love, Mimi xxx

Hi Mimi! Post a picture of your outfit (preferably with you in it!)!

Question: I am thinking of ordering the DVD "Housewife 49". Have you seen it? I read Nella Last's War, and was wondering if I'd like the movie.

Dear Mimi,
I am writing to tell you how glad I am to have discovered your lovely and eloquent blog this grey and rainy Saturday. I agree with "anonymous" that your blog doesn't need photos...your words conjure up all the images one needs.

I am going to look forward to slowly reading through all of your old posts and then continuing along with you from now on. Thank you for sharing the beauty of your days.
