The God of Small Things

Here’s a list of ten small joys . . .

The joy of not getting irritated by delayed trains

The joy of contemplative ironing

The joy of being eagerly greeted by a dog who’s delighted to see you or casually acknowledged by a cat who’s willing to tolerate your presence

The joy of custard

The joy of re-using old wrapping paper and finding it’s just the size you need

The joy of free-wheeling down a hill

The joy of a familiar path at different times and in different seasons

The joy of noticing an old name or date on a building

The joy of conversing in Franglais

The joy of spotting bus drivers waving to each other as they pass

  1. Hi Claire, I like this! It would be good to find a new ‘small joy’ every day for a set period of time. e.g. during Advent. Maybe that’s something that you,. your mum and I coudl do and share! What do you think? Also, I’m doing Brian Draper’s Advent emails again this year and Mike and Hannah are doing them too.. See you at the V & A on Monday.
