Listography: Simple Pleasures

This is a simple Listography this week, Kate wants us to talk about our Simple Pleasures. It's a topic that's close to my heart, enjoying the little things that make the day tick by in an enjoyable manner.

  1. Watching The Boy sleep: I chose this one for The Gallery a while back, and it still is right up in my top five. I described it at the time as "Having a cwtch with my son and staring at his beautiful baby face."
  2. Chocolate: You know that urge don't you? I feel fraught and I need a bar of Dairy Milk now. The first chunk slowly melting on your tongue… bliss!
  3. Sitting in the garden: and feeling the grass between my toes, hearing the birds in the trees, children squealing with delight and the washing flapping on the line.
  4. A freshly made bed: specifically with line-dried sheets that smell of the outdoors. Slipping in between those sheets and feeling the cool side of the pillow.
  5. Sunshine: Not excessive heat to go with it because I don't do hot, but the gentle caress of the sun's rays on your skin and that glowing feeling.

Short and sweet. After all "Simple things for simple minds while greater fools look on".

    My lad is 34 & not living at home but apart from that one, the others would all be in my list especially the freshly made bed. If I was a billionaire I'd have fresh sheets every day!!

    Chocolate! Am about to stop buying chocolate from now until after our wedding!! Need to shed a few pounds before the big day. But chocolate is definitely one of my simple pleasures x

    ooh clean sheets. Delicious. You have just reminded me, Husband changed our bed and I have my favourite clean sheets waiting for me. Roll on bedtime – will possibly send Husband to spare room on trumped up snoring charges so I can enjoy all to myself.

    Mmmm clean sheets! Always get a good nights sleep with fresh sheets. I love a cup of tea after a hard day too. And maybe a cake. Or 3.

    Brilliant list – I agree with all of them (except the first one, watching YOUR boy sleep would make me a bit creepy……!)
