Celebrate The Small Things - 2 August

Goodness me, it's AUGUST already. How did that happen? Time to Celebrate The Small Things again!

The point of this weekly post is this: post small events/happenings/thoughts/observations from the week you'd like to celebrate. They can be anything, from enjoying being caught in a storm to that welcome cup of tea to finishing that chapter. Sign up on the linky, and hop around and celebrate with others!

My Celebrations for the week:

  • Working from home in the quiet still of an empty house, with rain pattering the window outside.
  • Catching up with old friends and having a giggle.
  • Keeping up with my exercise - four gym trips this week.
  • Cracking on with my edits.
  • Receiving awards OMG how lovely from Brandy and Tara Tyler. They are SO appreciated!

What are you celebrating?

Here's the linky list:


  1. A quiet house for writing, sounds lovely and productive. I too am still celebrating friendship. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. It's funny how restful the rain is against the windows. Good luck with the continuing edits as you giggle with your friends - the nicest possible weekend!

  3. Pattering rain is one of the absolute best sounds, and brilliant for writing! Good job on the edits, and the gym trips!

  4. I also enjoy writing when it's raining, and a quiet house is a must. Giggling with friends is priceless. Have a nice weekend.

  5. Good stuff on the gym visits! Now enjoy that empty house.

  19. When I was little we had an outdoor swimming pool in our town. It was open from spring to autumn, rain or shine, and on those summer days when it was hot but wet it was oddly therapeutic to swim through the warm rain.
