Weekly Thanksgivings 3


Midnight’s purr and Cleo’s chattiness. Cherry blossoms and golden sunsets. Camellia trees. Reviving suppers at an old favourite, overflowing mugs of hot chocolate included. Germany nostalgia (this time last year, I was regularly taking the ferry to Walhalla 

just because.) 

Taking afternoon tea with my mother because she’s the best. My darling dearest beloved William who ran up one of Bristol’s steepest hills to find me. Spring bicycle rides – there is nothing like riding in the sunshine. The glorious feeling when you know your essay’s almost finished… Long Skype conversations with American sisters/best friends. German radio. Spontaneous train journeys home. My parents, who really are the best people I know.

There’s so much to smile about.
