Three Good Things 3

My Three Good Things posts can only be described as painfully sporadic, but I love them as a way of sharing the happy in my life without seeming like I’m bragging too much. Sneaky, I know.

(Of course, Three Good Things was begun by Liz at Margot and Barbara.)

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer


I know this is majorly retro, but over the last couple of months or so Ant and I have been devouring the whole Buffy boxset. I saw a lot of it back in the 90s, but this is my first time watching the whole thing from start to finish and I’m flipping LOVING it. Yeah, series 4 was a bit of a battle and series 1 has more bad episodes than good, but series 3 is a corker and we’re well into series 5 now, eagerly waiting for Riley to bore off and Glory to glam things up a bit.

2. Spring is here

I know it’s technically been spring for a while, but the daffodils, sunshine and breezy days have all conspired to give me itchy feet. I want to start new projects, christen new notebooks and clean everything. Maybe the spring in the air is what’s helped us finally get started on the garden, and choose a colour to paint the bedroom, and encouraged me to change things up a bit at work. The spring pervades everything, and this year I’m not just embracing it but grabbing it with two hands and putting it to work.

3. My library

By far my favourite Christmas gift this year was membership to The Leeds Library, a private library in the centre of town. I love swiping my card at the unobtrusive door next to Paperchase, I love climbing the stone spiral staircase, I love being surrounded by twenty foot high bookshelves, I love settling down in a quiet corner by a window and watching the world go by as I flick through a magazine or check my emails or read a great new book that I wouldn’t have splashed out on a hardback copy of and I love choosing a stack of books to take home and linger over. The picture above is the books I brought home on Friday, and I’ve spent a few selfish hours since then racing through them, so that I’ve almost finished the lot. Isn’t reading on a blanket in the garden one of the most luxurious things?

Well, I think so.

    I love these posts 🙂 I’m re-watching Buffy at the moment as well and have just got to season 5! Season 2 & 3 are definitely the pinnacle of the show – I think I’m enjoying it even more now than I did in the 90s (although I’m not sure my parents should have let me watch it – it’s quite scary in parts and I was quite young!)

  2. I love all of your three good things! I’ve loved Buffy ever since I made my ex-mother in law tape every episode for me when i was away at college. Even though she sometimes taped the snooker instead…
    And I’m VERY jealous of your Leeds Library membership; I would love to join. I definitely think reading a book in the sunshine is total and utter luxury.

    Such a lovely post – I’ll link up with you on Wednesday x
