LETTER: The simple things in life

editorial image

NOWADAYS there is all sorts of stuff available to us.

Some of it basic essentials, but some of it more luxury than essential.

I think we are actually a lot happier and healthier when we stick to essentials.

There is more real happiness in basic essentials.

I often think about camping and why we enjoy it.

I think it is because we actually like and want life to be more basic than how we’ve got it.

A bit rougher than we’ve got it.

We don’t have to wait for camping holidays to have some fun.

We can have bits at home.

Go to the corner shop, or a drive, in your bare feet for a laugh.

Have a night on the sofa instead of going to bed for a change.
