I just had to show you these pictures I took of Snap. You have to admire her ability to find the sunniest place in the house and her total relaxation. They were taken on Tuesday when Spring felt so close (it has disappeared again now but at least I know it is out there somewhere!) and I had thrown open all the windows and doors. My fourth load of washing was drying on the line and I went upstairs to my bedroom to catch up on some blog reading with a cup of coffee and the afternoon play on Radio 4. Snap followed me and made herself comfortable and I found myself watching her instead of looking at my screen. Her eyes became more and more droopy as she sat in the sunlight until, with a big sigh, she gave into the heat and fell asleep with her head over the side of the bed. We managed 45 minutes of silent companionship (well silent apart from the radio, her snoring, the 6000 birds outside the window and a tractor in the distance, but you know what I mean!) before I had to go and collect Sam from school and life returned to "normal".
Amongst the hustle and bustle these are the moments I treasure. True simple pleasures. What are yours?
