What makes the perfect Breakfast in Bed?
Today I've really been pondering how it's the simple things that make us truly happy and for me this is epitomised by the simple notion of breakfast in bed. There's no greater feeling than waking up to the smell of toast and tea with the knowledge you don't even have to move.
It's the perfect opportunity to feel completely calm before a busy day and really enjoy your breakfast. I find most days of the week I'm rushing out the door with toast in hand or wolfing down a bowl of yoghurt whilst I try and straighten my hair. This is what makes breakfast in bed is the perfect weekend luxury. It's so important to sit back sometimes and just love everything you have.
For me, the perfect breakfast in bed is a simple one. Toast smothered with my favourite raspberry jam, big cup of tea and fresh orange juice. Throw in some freshly picked flowers from the garden and my morning is complete. Of course, everyone will have a different idea about what their ideal breakfast looks like but what really makes the perfect breakfast in bed, is the gesture behind it. Maybe you've got a cold and your housemate cobbles you together some porridge or you've had a long week at work and your partner surprises you with cakes and coffee...
This is what makes breakfast in bed one of the most underrated gestures, as this simple thing can just show someone how much you care. So don't wait for the next birthday or big occasion, surprise someone with breakfast in bed just because they deserve it.
