Being the first to open and use a new jar of marmite.

(Also applies to a new tub of butter/spread, but not quite as rewarding as the virgin marmite experience)

A belting summer thunderstorm and the wet/fresh smell afterwards.
Coming home from some sporting or other physical activity, having a warm shower and a cuppa tea
Dipping a dark chocolate digestive in said cuppa
Skiing in fresh powder
The sexual climax I achieve when I ban a SWF poster
Garlic bread

Never hit a decent tee shot, I usually just shout 'c**tbag' at the large hole I've dug.

- A Bottle of Wine, Red especially, picked up on my travels for not silly money that makes me go "oh thats a bit nice" even better when sharing with friends and they say "wow where DID you get this?!".
- Fillet Steak that cuts like butter.
- Walking down the hill into LLafranc at the beginning of our holiday and seeing the beach and the sea.
- Just another 5 minutes in bed turning into an hour at least on a Saturday Morning.
- just cleaned windows on the house
- Free wood for the Woodburners, when a friend says "having that big Birch felled, would you like the wood as its saving me a quite few quid them not taking it away".
- Chicken and Chips from Carn Padres just outside Pals on the Costa Brava, trust me you will struggle to find better...........so bloody good that the old boy who owns it only has to open the place June until the end of September.

Winding up telephone scammers claiming to be from BT or "Windows Support". We have variously been a Police Station, a secret Government establishment, and an active murder scene where the investigating officers on site have picked up the phone. ( Our daughter has a variation on this one where she responds as the perpetrator saying "They're all dead, there's so much blood !" ). We have also created an entirely fictitious 3rd son, and we now get scammers asking for him directly, ( but he is always unavailable as he is on active service in the SBS. The caller's often respond to this by saying how proud we must be of him ).

That's the one I cribbed from.

I also like the one where the person responding to the call tells the scammer that he has contacted a CIA base, and his location's map coordinates have been marked, and a Reaper drone despatched.

Winning, at anything. Could be a game of football with a 6 year old. Donít care, enjoy winning.

A good shot in golf

Getting off a plane and feeling the heat of a tropical climate

Opening a jar that someone else struggled and failed to open

Falling asleep with my dogs

Starting a fire (safely of course)

Picking the fastest moving lane in a traffic jam

Pressure washing something very dirty
