Three Beautiful Things
1. My new friend
The icecream van arrives in a burst of tinkly Greensleeves and movement in the park directs itself to the Claremont Road corner. A long-legged eight-year-old comes back to the family next to us and hands her mother some change: ‘There’s 60p less because I bought one for my new friend.’
2. Sharing small pleasures
‘I’ll give you one of my crisp fivers,’ says the lady in the coffee shop.
In my change is a note with ‘quit your job’ written on it.
