These Little Things

The first blackberry of the season, and all the promise of those heavily laden brambles.

I have a shelf above my cooker on which I occasionally stick little notes to myself to remind me of things I need to keep in my mind in order to not get bogged down by the every day stuff. To the left is my note, and on the right is Simons response. (Mine reads 'tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?' and Simons reads 'maybe watch a bit of telly and have a sit down')

We are chalk and cheese, he and I, but share the important things, like our sense of humour. And I love that it is often our differences, not our similarities that make us strong, as we fill in each others gaps.


  1. Your blackberries look amazing. Our blackberry bushes did not produce this year due to our dry hot summer. I look forward to them next year.

  2. I don't think it has ever been dry enough here for the brambles to fail!


Please feel free to leave a comment. I love reading them and hearing your thoughts.
