Some things that make me smile

4 November 2014

I haven’t blogged a think in like six weeks and I really should have. Life has been quite busy recently – new job, new flat, people coming and people going, elections fought and elections lost – that I’ve struggling to find time to do even basic stuff like shave my head or do my laundry.

But I’ve done both of those tonight and, as it turns out, I have time to write a blog as well. Even if it’s an easy one.

While ferrying between South London and North London on the tube this week I started to jot down things that make me happy. It seems like something that was important to do, just because it’s easier to do the opposite and take more notice of what sucks in life.

I dunno, feeling good is pretty nice.
