- It's not that I miss Starbucks, but there is, just occasionally, something rather nice about sitting in an anonymous, could-be-anywhere-in-the-world coffee shop where the music is bland, the salad forgettable and the service is poor. It's just familiar, and yes, here in Coffee Bean, the internet is free!...I am sure the whipped cream on my iced additive drink is not included in the 88 calories it is purported to contain.
- Actually needing a jumper this morning was wonderful! I have totally forgotten the notion of cold, particularly the sort of cold that is not induced by aircon. By now, of course, it's back at 29 degrees..
- Was wondering about number three until an email arrived, just a moment ago, telling me how I had made my friend's day. Well, she just made mine. It's an amazing thing that it's so easy to forget that my actions have an effect on other people. I don't want to sound preachy, but I can't work out why these obvious facts, which totally enhance life and improve it no end, usually slip my mind. And always at the times that I need them most. Appreciation feeds appreciation, love feeds love. Thank you to the wonderful J for making me feel unbounded today!
