Count your blessings - March 2020

  1. Waking up and realising it was one of the rare nights this year that you slept through the night without interruptions from the children, sinusses or worries
  2. The return of daylight during the return commute in the evening
  3. Friends that take you to a dance party with music of "our age" on a weekend that Jan was away and dance a couple of hours again like the good old days
  4. Shampoo bar friend
  5. A swan that decided to take a field along my daily commute as its home
  6. Jan who made it home in time and as planned in the midst of the Corona crisis outbreak
  7. Digital communication and internet to stay in touch with people when we can't meet anymore
  8. Spring weather that ended many many weeks of storms and rainy weather...just in time when we were confined at home
  9. More quality time with the family
  10. Free online webinars en child classes and musea tours, ...
  11. Rediscovering the art of puzzling and seeing how Kabouter gets infected by the puzzling bug. 
  12. 100 tulips bought on the last market  so house is full of flowers  (and finding out to my relief about 2 nearby flowershops that offer delivery service during lockdown)
  13. Deliveroo and Uber eat services that continue to operate so we can continue ordering in now and then (and pretend all is normal or get a meal we normally don't cook, while we support local restaurants to continue to some degree). 
  14. Full stores...we've learned not to take them for granted
  15. No more sore sinusses thanks to the quarantaine  
  16. Puzzling with Kabouter
  17. Teddybears and white sheets in all windows
  18. Emtpy agenda's in the weekends...forced unwinding.

This is a monthly list of simple things in my life that make me happy or that make me smile.  
As the world often seems full of negativity and disaster, I want to pay attention to these small things that make me happy in my daily life and be grateful for them. You can find all of them via this link
