63. Joy

A sunny patio courtyard with pots of flowers and a lazy cat.

When someone, who loves you, smiles with their eyes.

The first sip of something cold on day one of the holiday.

Singing in the car.

When a toddler rests their head on your shoulder.

The crowd in unison at the winning goal.

Walking barefoot on cool grass.

Watching the rain fall, through an open window or shop doorway.

A nap.

A hug.

A smile.

The moment the lights go down and the band walk onstage.

Sitting down to hot tea and home-made cake.

Stepping inside a tiny house or vintage caravan.

Seeing your favourite painting in real life.

Sharing hot vinegary chips at the seaside.

Prolonged eye contact with a stranger who you will never see again.

A child laughing.

Your winning snipe on eBay.

Finishing a killer sudoku.

A shellfish platter on ice and glass of champagne.

Having a go on the swings at the playground.

Absolute silence.

A hand-written letter.

Getting into a freshly-made bed after a hot shower at the end of a long, busy day.

Announcement of the band getting back together.

Dappled sunlight on a woodland walk.

A family photo album.

Episode one of a new season of a great tv show.

A murmuration of starlings.

A home-made birthday card from a child.
