Today is my first day as a single woman in five years. I’m lying in my best friend’s spare bed, listening to the kid next door practising piano. I haven’t really eaten for two days and I’m pretty sure I’m losing my job next week. It seems like a good time to count my blessings.

1. Five years of happiness, and knowing when to leave
2. Friends
3. Trust in my own decisions
4. Hope
5. Independence
6. Golden Queen peaches
7. A life filled with the joy of good food, music, wine, books and art
8. Hone Tuwhare
9. Pickled walnuts
10. Him.
