Oh my

Our purple picnic has been the best so far! It included:The eating of purple food; fresh beetroot dip, apple and blackcurrant juice, fresh berries, gluten-free blueberry muffin
The wearing of purple (and pink *ahem*)
Conversation with nice ducks before the evil seagulls and ibises began to attack us

Seeing the sweet little ducklings swim nearFeeling the green grass
And finding impossibly tiny leavesJust being with a dear friend -
Reminding ourselves that we need to slow down sometimes;
we need to let go of our stress, anxiety, deadlines etc
And just enjoy good company, food, grass, colours...
Just enjoy living.
