Things that make you go Mmmmm

Last night over sushi with Shanely, the youngest Doddling raised the interesting question of "The small things that make us disproportionately happy". I said she should compile the list and stick it on the internets but here's a start...

  • Fish and chips with a mug of tea after a long day's walking (Final score on the TV is a bonus)
  • Clean bed linen
  • Wet winter afternoons indoors with a good book (or woman)
  • Early on summer mornings at Lords or The Oval just as play begins
  • Cooking yourself yummy dinner
  • Lovely draught beer in lovely non-draughty pubs
  • Tea and cake
  • Art galleries when they're quiet and it's just you and the pictures
  • Blankets
  • Dogs on the beach
  • Rivers
  • Fresh winter Saturday mornings when I have a coffee in my hand
  • Good bookshops
  • Tinned peaches
  • Beans on Toast
  • A hot bath
  • New art materials, especially Rexel 4B pencils
  • Sunlight at dusk
  • Getting dressed up
  • New guitar strings
There's a start. I suspect that this may be a theme to which I return.
