Favourite Thing On A Friday - A Little Bliss List

It's Friday.  And after taking a break from Favourite Thing On A Friday for a few weeks, just to catch my breath, it's back!  I'm really looking forward to seeing what your favourite things have been.

I'm also linking up with Liv Lane's Little Bliss List.  Liv has a beautiful blog.  Every Friday she offers a place to share our favourite things of the week.  Things that we are grateful for and that have brought us a little bit of bliss and sparkle. It would be fab if you fancied linking up your favourite things and Little Bliss List there too.


I have a few favourite things to share with you this week, a few things on my Little Bliss List.

  • My mum gave me these little primroses in pots.  I've put them so that I can see them each morning through the kitchen window.  This week they really came into full bloom and produced the most beautiful flowers.  All around was ice and frost, and in the midst of the cold these little flowers were valiantly shouting out (in what I like to imagine to be a slightly husky but determined manner, somewhat akin to Katherine Hepburn if you will)  "Spring is coming!"  They make me smile.  I'm so grateful for the burst of colour and optimism they've brought to my mornings.

  • Your kind and supportive comments on my blog post on Tuesday really warmed my heart.  I had no idea I was going to get such a resounding show of support.  Your words made such a difference to how I was feeling. I went from feeling as if I was on a ledge (nekkid) chewing my fingers to nubbins, to feeling as if I was well wrapped up in warm woollies and could jump off the ledge and fly. Thank you. ♥

  • More and more I am finding my blog a beautiful way to connect with people. I'm so grateful for the lovely friends I'm making through Mimi and Tilly.  Thank you for taking the time to come here and read what I write.

  • My cat Ernie likes to cuddle his own head.  He did it again yesterday and it made my teeth hurt it was so cute.

  • I read this quote this week and loved it. Liv Lane has been inspiring me to face some of my fears and  I'm so grateful for her guidance.

  4. Those primroses are just a blast of bliss for me today. Flower lovers unite!
    Your comparison to Kathrine Hepburn is great too. She should be smiling!
    Warmly, Kathy

  13. Pretty flowers and a curled up tabby - thee really is joy to be treasured in the small things, isn't there? You write in such a thoughtful and insightful way about these things, Emma.
    Yes, the Fear - who doesn't have some of that? I am trying to say yes a few more times to the things that scare me instead of an automatic knee-jerk "NO!"
    Have a lovely weekend. xxxxx

  16. I love that your flowers have Hepburn's voice. I think I'll carry that with me as I gaze on my own plants surrounded by snow!

  17. What a great list! I totally love the pictures of the flowers, I really like purple tones and it makes me happy just looking at those. And the cat is so adorable. :) Have a nice weekend!

  18. I loved your recent post and how you showed your love and courage in face of everything that you are going through.
    Recently, Mitt Romney was "glitter bombed", did you see it? I don't think it was meant in a nice way, although he tried to turn it around and said, "It's confetti, I just won Florida!". That is what we have to do in life, try our best to make the best of things and appreciate all the love that comes to us.
    (of course, the glitter reminded me of you!)
