Small pleasures - 7

Going out for a short bike ride on a rare sunny teatime when most of the tourists have gone home from the Monsal Trail, and saying hello to my lovely neighbours on the way back, and being urged to join them for a Pimms in the sunshine. So we sat on their terrace in the sunshine and chatted and laughed and looked at their garden and the fields beyond, and I realised that the last time I was in a similar situtation - garden, sunshine, fields, Pimms, laughing - was with my mother, and the realisation enhanced a moment which was already beyond delight.
