This weekend just gone I returned to Oxford to visit friends from my old hockey club. All of the things on my happy list this week come from this trip:

  • Being welcomed back into a group like you’ve never been away.
  • Playing a competitive hockey match (or two) that challenges your skills and fitness whilst being safe in the knowledge that at the end of the day the result doesn’t matter.
  • Fizzy wine as half-time refreshment *hic*

On the way back I broke my journey with my parents, just so I could get one of my all time favourite things… a hug from my Mum.

This post is part of my attempt to recognise the joy of simple pleasures.
