Waking up to the sound of rain on the window during the early hours of the morning, made us think about life’s small pleasures.  Snuggled up in a warm bed with the rain outside is just one of them.  

With hectic lives and day to day chores, it is so easy to overlook these small things. The small things that can often give us the greatest of pleasures. 

We always think of the small pleasures as the little things we enjoy, that have little or no cost.  

Everyone’s will be different but here are some of ours.
