So, here is some cake for us.
So, in celebration of this inexplicably lovely day, a day in which I am happy just to be alive, I am going to take a bit of time and be thankful for all the little things. For a start I am happy that someone came up with these cookies.
I am happy that this large wooden gate guards a house in Moortown, Leeds.
To continue with architectural features I love that if you look closely you can find beautiful details everywhere. I liked the stone rose detail here.
On the subject of architecture, I love finding random details in train stations. Details like this just make life more pleasant. Don't you think?
I just love it when you round a corner and find an unexpected Ferris wheel. I thought this one was lovely all lit up at night. It made my trip home from work more exciting.
I am happy that some people actually take the time to create graffiti art rather than simply tagging a wall with misplaced words and strange lettering.
So there you have it. A number of randomly lovely things. The sorts of things that make my day. The sorts of things you don't expect to find but make you smile anyhow. There are so many of them out there. They are everywhere if you know how to look for them.
Now if you will excuse me I need to celebrate this inexplicably lovely merry unbirthday day with some cake. And if it is not too impertinent of me, I suggest you do the same. Unless of course it's actually your birthday. In which case, you may do better with a birthday party and perhaps an appropriately lettered birthday cake. However, I suspect that you, dear reader, are more likely in my situation and it is simply a merry unbirthday day. So have cake. It is after all a great day to be alive.
A merry unbirthday to all!
