Joy Pockets

our boy turning six
purple-painted toenails
Bird by Bird – who knew a book on writing technique could be so laugh out loud funny
Irish strawberries
sweaty sleeping baby curls
 a stupendous new issue of JUNO
a clear post-migraine head
horse-drawn rubbish collection – apparently they have it in Belgium!
an invitingly tidy dining room table
a new baby word: cack! (which means cat!)
appreciation
the anticipation of mint chips being sent from the US by a new found blogging friend

Thanks to Mon at Bohemian Twilight for starting the Friday Joy Pocket trend
Do share your joy pockets with me below…
Wishing you a wonderful weekend
