What simple thing gives you that frisson of pleasure and excitement?

For me, it's when my monthly copy of Gardeners World drops though the letterbox. I also get quite excited when, having read a really good book on my Kindle, I then find that there are 10 or so other books by the same author in the series - and they're all on Kindle Unlimited so I can download them all at no further cost! Simple pleasures smile Anyone else?

A walk in the sunshine; being close to snow capped mountains although, sadly, not this year...

When my grandson is with me he drops off for his nap within 10 mins. My son says my technique does not work for him and is threatening to put up a spy camera in my house!😀

Receiving an Instagram message from my teenage granddaughter, who is over 5000 miles away....

Seeing my grandson after being away from him. He is the joy of my life.

When my step counter vibrates on my wrist to tell I’ve done my 10000 steps today. I manage it most days.

A beautiful sunrise or sunset. We are really lucky where we live, as we get to see both of these from our house.

Waves crashing on a beach.

Coming across wildlife or uncommon birds on a walk- the other day, 1 fox, 2 deer, many crested tits, and for the first time ever, a woodcock.

Coffee and warm scones, butter and jam whilst watching Escape to the Country on tv in the afternoons. Not very healthy (the scones etc) I know, but we do go for a walk afterwards to get rid of some of those calories! smile

Settling down on a Friday evening for a pre-dinner drink (and a bowl of olives to snack on). We don't drink Mon - Thurs, so by the time Friday comes around we're gasping!
