10 things Tuesday: the perfect morning

Early morning at Lake Rotoiti, Nelson Lakes National Park, Nelson, New Zealand.

Life is particularly manic at the moment and I find myself longing for a morning that isn’t full of obligation. My desires are fairly simple:

1. An early walk by water, preferably where I can watch either the sunrise or mist clearing for the day.

2. A well-made latte, no froth.

3. A croissant; crisp and slightly warm.

4. Some peaches; preferably Golden Queen .

5. A copy of The Guardian, or the Observer.

6. A comfortable chair.

7. The sun on my face.

8. Knowing the boy-child is ok (though not necessarily present)

9. The Big T, who understands companionable silence (definitely present).

10. An empty page in my calendar so that I can enjoy all of the above.

 

Here are some other “10 Things” posts I’ve enjoyed. You might too.

    • Thank you Sally. The shot of Lake Rotoiti is a favourite, and always takes me back to a summer morning I spent walking by the lake, with no-one else around but some rowers, who had appeared – quite magically – out of the mist a few minutes earlier. Idyllic spot and a really wonderful holiday full of good memories.
