(Couldn’t resist this video – lip syncing obviously not their forte!)
I thought posting one simple pleasure a week would be a doddle. After all, there is so much in life to enjoy – sunshine for a start, or rain or everything else in Cherry Blossom Lane. However, it’s not as easy as it may seem. The world is teeming with simple pleasures but pinpointing them is more complicated. Why? Because we take so many of them for granted and/or we just don’t identify them as simple pleasures.
Just squeaking into the 4th week is the simple pleasure of getting into bed and having sheets that make you want to sing “it’s good and clean and fresh, tra la la”. I find something very comforting about crisp, clean linen.
Since we started cutting back on our consumption of water earlier this year, our bedding doesn’t get changed as frequently as it did before. I used to be quite fastidious about changing the sheets every week but if needs must, standards must fall. Which makes the pleasure of climbing into a bed newly made with freshly laundered sheets all the more sweeter.
