Life's Small Victories
It's funny how a succession of small things can make your day good. I started out the day talking to my mum, as I always do on Saturday, and my dad made me laugh so hard because he was making shadow animals over the phone.
Then my son and I scored at Thriftworld for his Halloween malevolent clown costume - we got a bright red pair of pants, a hideous tie, a green and a yellow t-shirt for under $10.
Then I got carded buying beer at Target. I haven't been carded in ages. With my gigantic son standing right beside me, no less.
Then I went home, and the guy across the road had the cutest little puppy (which looked sort of like this), and Mykull and I played with it for a while. The puppy, I hasten to add, knowing the readership of this blog.
Then my son and I went for a walk with Jenny along the River Eno, and it was really beautiful and relaxing.
