Thread: The small things in life that bring you joy

    Default The small things in life that bring you joy

    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.

    My new cordless mower. I never thought anything as mundane as a mower could bring me more joy than the birth of my daughter or leaving my first wife.

    - 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.

    Especially when you have been toiling away at something and a beer will be an unwise decision.

    Walking the dogs out across the beach at low tide; the Lake District in front of us, the Pennines to our right, and an open vista towards the Isle of Man to the left, and knowing there isn't another human being within a mile and a half radius.

    Having a really satisfying dump followed by a clean detach that only needs minimal wiping.
