Ode to simple pleasures

Thursday, 20 February 2014

Beyond all the births and marriages, the engagements and celebrations, the perfect holiday and the nabbing of that dream job, we tend to forget that some of the best things in life are Just Because. All the little acts that you never really consider important until you stop and really think. It's these minute things that bring the most pleasure to our lives without even realising - so it's time to celebrate the simple pleasures in life! Here are a few of mine:

++ When all your public transport connections synchronise perfectly.
++ The tingly feeling of an actual sneeze.
++ Eating buttercream icing from the bowl.
++ Gloves and a hot drink on a bitterly cold day.
++ When somebody asks you where you got that thing that you are wearing.
++ A hot and steamy muscle-relaxy bath after months of boring showers.
++ Setting all your alarm clocks to OFF.
++ Breakfast, coffee and lazy Sunday morning catch-up TV in bed. With blankets.
++ Organising all your Spotify playlists meticulously. If you're a sadcase like me, anyway.
++ Additionally, the perfect song at the perfect moment. Unexpectedly.
++ The sound of rain whilst you're inside. Extra satsifying if you're in a tent.
++ Eye contact with somebody you're into - and the butterflies that follow.
++ Fresh bed linen. 'nuff said.
++ When your football team surprisingly win. Especially if you support West Ham.
++ Laughing until you're crying - and crying until you're laughing.

What are some of your simple pleasures?
