Things Louisa Woods Likes

  1. Turning the shower up as hot as I can bear it and standing underneath it, daydreaming
  2. Being made a cup of tea by someone without them needing to ask how I like it
  3. “I love you”s that come out of the blue
  4. The contented clucking of my chickens as they scratch around in the garden
  5. Listening to my girls playing happily together (as rare as that may be!)
  6. A genuine thank-you
  7. Balmy spring days
  8. Handwritten letters arriving in the mailbox
  9. Getting a hello or a smile on the street
  10. Singing and dancing in the kitchen while I bake or cook

Louisa Woods is a mother of three, living in New Zealand.

Things Justine McGrath Likes

  1. My first cup of tea with almond milk every morning
  2. A light-bulb moment
  3. Getting so engrossed in a good book I don’t know where I am
  4. The smell of roast chicken on a Sunday and that crisp glass of fabulous-tasting wine to go with it
  5. Looking at the picture of a princess my seven-year-old niece drew for me, and the words underneath, ‘lots and lots of luv.’
  6. Going into a bookshop and seeing the book I wrote and knowing that one of my dreams has come true
  7. The tiny bit of relief I feel after a really good cry over my dad’s death
  8. Hearing my husband’s overly loud wacky laugh
  9. Sitting down on my sofa with my woolen blanket to watch Mad Men
  10. The memory of the sunrise and sunset in Zambia
Justine McGrath grew up in Zambia and wrote the story of her father’s life, which was published last year.
