Having a cat is a victory in itself.  Obviously.

Having a cat is a victory in itself. Obviously.

I’ve been told that any blogger who’s anyone needs some sort of ‘Top Tips’ post at some point. Like ‘101 ways to style your cat’ or ’50 best things about wearing lounge pants’.  I have gone for a slightly more unusual number: 58 Mini Victories.  Because that’s how many I thought of.  Some of these are more mini than others, but to me all of them are victories nevertheless.

So, in no particular order, my 58 Mini Victories are:

  1. Wearing pants (in the English sense)
  2. Picking up the kettleBeautiful Woman You Pukka Tea
