This week's Listography theme has been born from the desperation that we can all relate to, when illness renders the whole household into agoraphobic zombies caught in a time loop repeating a miserable cycle of aches, pains, puke and seething resentment. Inflicted with this scenario, Kate daydreamed what would constitute the perfect day, ergo we have this week's theme!
1: Perfect days always begin in a relaxed way. No alarm clock. No high pressured school runs with me nagging the girls to hurry up whilst trying to convince a toddler to eat his toast. No negotiation of the morning traffic. I want to gently rise from my peaceful slumber looking serene to be met by a tender Sleeping Beauty style kiss from my Prince Charming husband.
3: I am actually quite easily pleased...a cheap date if you like! Nothing pleases me more than a nice brunch in a coffee shop. I love their comfy sofas, their smell, their pretentious luxury! My head says, "You could a buy a whole jar of coffee for the price of one Grande Latte!" But the heart says, "Hazelnut Macchiato...ooh look at me, I'm so cosmopolitan!!" It makes me feel like I've made it! I'm a grown up in a coffee shop!
