My Life's Little Pleasures

A survey recently came out on the nation's top pleasures in life and it got me thinking what little things make me happy...mostly free things, time to appreciate these. Have a think about what's on your list...
Clean sheets - oh that feeling when you get into a bed with fresh, washing powder-scented sheets. Best sleep EVER!
Having a great make-up/hair day - you know those days - when everything just goes perfectly (usually happens when you haven't tried so hard). Eyeing yourself in the mirror like, Oh yes, it's going to be a gooooood day.
Laughing til you cry - by the end of it, you don't even know what you're laughing about. And it doesn't matter!
Cuddles - oh cuddles, I love them. That simple act can make all kinds of upset/angry/negative emotions melt away. Embrace each other and the power of a cuddle (especially animal cuddles)!
Peeling - anything. Peeling off the top of a yoghurt pot, the lid on a new milk bottle, glue off your fingers, and the ultimate - that bit of plastic off your phone. It's just so satisfying!
Being cosy - this is the ultimate state I aim to be in at all times. I am under a blanket at all possible opportunities, no matter what time of year. Hot baths, putting PJs on when they've been on the radiator, snuggling anywhere and everywhere. Swear I should hibernate, or be a cat...
Deep breathing - after suffering with insomnia a few years ago, meditation was the only thing that actually helped. The power of deep breathing and clearing your mind is incredible. Super popular right now, mindfulness and taking some time out to be 'in the moment' is beautiful
Would love to hear what's on your list!
