a short commute

A long week at work ended unpleasantly with a minor emergency at the end of Friday. I tramped across the car park in the slight drizzle. Plonked myself into the driving seat and threw my hand bag and lunch bag onto the passenger seat. I started the engine and turned the cd up loud and sang along. I was halfway home when I spotted a little girl in the arms of her grandfather, she was laughing and clapping as he blew raspberries on her cheeks. I was almost home when I spotted some students running and laughing with carrier bags over the heads to protect from the rain which was now falling. I couldn't help but smile and the stress lifted. Weekends or days away from work are precious things. 

Have a good weekend. 


  1. Such a lovely post, I agree with the sentiments entirely.

  2. Lovely, and very true. Wee very good things make even huge bad thing a bit less bad. :)

  3. Awww... yeah, it's lovely when you spot something that makes you smile and the world seems a little brighter for it. (Mine is usually old people holding hands!) x
