Cheap Date


Dipping crackers into cream cheese and leaving crumbs
Farting loudly in the bath and enjoying the increase of  the foam layer.
Sucking chocolate from a chocolate finger
Popping bubble wrap,
Sitting in the dark with a layer of thick face cream on
Burping after too much diet coke
Lying in your own field looking up at the sky,
Reading the news during a long bowel movement on the loo,
My queeny toy being watched very closely by an interested bulldog
Mushy peas on toast,
Realising that you are the only person in the cinema
Having your toes licked by a dog,
Tinned peaches and evaporated milk,
Sex
Clean sheets and cool pillowcases,
Singing,
Laughing at a private joke,
Lying in bed after a particularly horrendous night shift while your husband and mother in law are out shopping for the day


All nice things that cost next to nothing

  2. Ha ha, I have one of those Queeny wind-up toys too. Also Prince Charles. They sit on top of my microwave along with a bunch of superhero minifigs.

    2. The added bonus of course is that as soon as the bra comes off all the wrinkles disappear from your face!

  13. Being able to be thankful for the simplicities in life, shows so much about oneself. I have a tree outside my living room. Some of its branches are dead, but it gives me much joy. I have one of my bird feeders on one of the lowest branches. Life is what we chose to see and be thankful for.

  14. Soft kisses. Cat sighing peacefully on my lap. Sunsets.
    Thanks, John for making me remember to be present to the best moments in life!

  15. Cats purring, chickens softly clucking, new babies...just being babies. All ordinary, lovely things that make life okay!

  16. I could get behind the peaches and evaporated milk! Evap. milk ... mmm. Yes, I know, some find that revolting too.

  18. I really miss my old dog licking my toes; I only had to say, "Do Mummy's tooties, please" and he'd come across and lick!!! Thanks for reminding me. :(
    Incidentally, thank you for the recommendation - I've just bought "Going Gently" by David Nobbs. I'll let you know my thoughts. x

  24. Fresh sheets - sun-dried and straight off the clothesline.

    The favourite dessert mum always made.

    Proper custard squares, with real custard, not synthetic muck.

    Steaming bubble bath on a cold winter's night.

    Reading a book on a deckchair, in the sun with the sound of insects buzzing and cricket commentary in the background (and Australia is being thrashed!)

  25. Thank you, John, I needed that today.

    Toasty corn chip smell of contented dog's feet.

    Sun through leaves.

    Hugging my burly hubby, especially while he is wearing braces.

    Getting a song just right on one of my instruments.

    Watching chickens run towards you excitedly.

    Smell and sound of horses eating oats, apple or watermelon.

    The burp and smile of a happy sheep about to chew the cud.

  27. You have such a wonderful way with words.

  28. I'm sure we could all compile a similar list of those little daily pleasures we savour. Personally I love a crunchy mouthful of Bombay Mix and a still-warm slice of toast and marmalade.

  29. Butterfly kisses and tomatoe sauce sandwiches....

    Dressing the bed with fresh air dried sheets . . .
    Being alone in the house . . .
    Braless . . .
    Eating what I want instead of what I "should."
