a) You can wear dangly earrings, beaded bracelets and long or short necklaces. I find this so exciting that I am often seen going to work resembling Mr T.
b) Without a baby in the car, you can turn up your music and drive (a little) recklessly.
c) You can have one hot drink, or as many as you fancy, you can drink them whilst hot and you can finish them.
d) Personally, I don't earn much, but I am almost able to cover half of our household bills and that sense of equality feels nice.

I have to keep reminding myself that we live in the UK and not the Tropics.
Neither of us has braved the allotment since and it is the Open Day on Saturday ... I'm praying for torrential rain as our grass must be back at the embarassing stage.
Scarlett has been diagnosed as above average long-sighted so, to prevent her left eye becoming more wobbly than it is already, she is now the proud owner of two pairs of glasses. I have been feeling a little sad for her but today I realised that beyond them is still my little girl and now she can probably see me clearly.
