It's the little things in life that can raise a day from a disaster to something that might improve: a steaming bowl of porridge on a cold morning, a cold pint with friends on a sunny summer day, a perfectly made mug of tea. The little things in life are all too often overlooked in our busy lives.
When I was living away, one of the simple things that would change my day was receiving post. I loved getting handwritten letters from people and still do. Often my Mam and sister Ciara would send me a little parcel that would contain Lyon's tea bags and some chocolate (Cadbury's does not taste as good anywhere as it does in Ireland) and I would pass a lovely evening with a big mug of tea, chocolate and a movie. The little things in life!
