  1. I have just ordered it from the library now! I had Clare Coulsons scrumptious 'House Rules' arrive, and also a biography of Nigella Lawson…and now this to come! Bookish bliss!

  2. Alison, I recently read this book and loved it. Generally, we avoid examining the "shadow" things about ourselves, the little bits and pieces about us with which we feel uncomfortable bringing into conscious light. But we can face the hard times with grace and dignity if we can face and love ourselves–the good with the bad. The book reminds me to appreciate life's little details but also to remember that we also are part of it and that we complicate our own lives, oftentimes needlessly. As you said, "small pleasures, simpicity and gratitude." I'm endeavoring to remember that in my life.
