Reading

Reading is one of my all-time favourite simple pleasures. There’s nothing more I love than curling up with a good book. My mum passed on her love of books to me, and it brings me great joy to see that I’ve passed my love of books on to Joe, my oldest son. For years we have curled up together to read, and it has always been really important bonding time. Now that he’s getting older, he enjoys reading on his own, and our reading-together sessions have almost ground to a halt. So it makes me so happy to now see him curling up with my youngest son Huey, his own younger brother, to read to him. I love that they are forging a bond during this time, just as I did with Joe, and just as I will try to do again with Huey. Seeing them like this is such a simple thing, but it melts my heart.
