List #26: My life essentials

1. Books.  A house without books is not a home.

2. My boy.  I never want to be the person who's all, "I can't live without my partner," but he's made my life so much better that although I can live without him, I'd really rather not.

3. Sunshine.  And if it's accompanied by warm weather, so much the better.

4. Fresh flowers around the house (which sounds an indulgence, but Aldi are brilliant for flowers on a budget and their lilies last for ages).

5. Time with my family and friends.

6. My cosy bed.  Even better if the alarm's not going off and I can lie in.

7. A large glass of white wine after work on a Friday.  Or a cold pint of cider on a Saturday afternoon.

8. Hugs (especially from my niece).

9. Music.  Current favourites include Tennis, Beach House, Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear: lovely summery harmonies.

10. My iPhone.  Sad, I know, but who could say it's not become an essential?


  1. I agree on all counts, although I'd need to swap a niece for a nephew :)

    1. Sometimes, when I'm entering my fourth hour of playing schools with her (because all teachers LOVE playing schools on the weekend), I'd swap her too ;)

  2. Me too! I need to get some fresh flowers this weekend, tulips are my fave x

    1. LOVE tulips, they're my favourites too. Apart from daffodils in spring. And lilies. And peonies. Ok, I really love flowers.

  3. Yes to all of this (apart from the iPhone but please don't take away my Nexus!)

  4. The first one is so relatable, a room just feels empty without a bookshelf. It can be such a nice and cosy room, if it doesn't have books, something's missing. And about you and your Boy, I think that's completely healthy. Someone should add something to your life, not complete it.
