    Little things that give you pleasure

    Iím on holiday in turkey and thereís a guy that goes around in roller skates taking orders for drinks and handing out ice lollies. I could easygo and order this myself, but it makes me happy when the guy comes round in his roller skates.

    When a random animal or bird interacts without fear or trepidation out the blue. Pretty much how I became a cat Ďownerí.

    Itís a fantastic place to holiday. Iíd never been before until last year as Iíd heard mixed reports from people who had gone, but I absolutely love it. It reminds me of being on holiday as a child in places like Greece or Spain before the EU imposed all their laws on everything. Thereís an absolute overkill of of staff doing every job and theyíre super friendly. British people are also in the minority in our hotel which is really nice as you donít have to listen to folk complaining about the food

    We were really wanting to go for a Turkish bath, but the wee one is having none of it. It looks amazing as well.

    Acknowledgement with a smile.

  19. #18
    When a random person smiles at me or says good morning, hello etc. If I make eye contact with people in public I've started always trying to acknowledge them. It's amazing how much happier and friendlier everyone seems when you engage with them in even the briefest of ways.

    Also dogs in pubs. I know there was a whole thing on the pet peeves thread about dogs in public places but I love being in a pub and seeing a dog just enjoying themselves with their owner.

    There used to be a guy that came into my local wth a Great Dane. It was absolutely huge and as soon as it came in everyone used to go to the bar and buy a packet of plain crisps. You just put them in his mouth and he would drop them to the floor and stand on them with his paw to burst them open, before eating them all. He was quite old and so gentle, I really miss him coming in.

    The thing that makes me happiest is being able to do something, big or small, that makes someone else happy. I don't need thanks, just knowing I've made a wee difference to someone else is enough.

    The daylight when you have a broad bank of dark cloud next to sunshine. It is exquisite.

    Im sure we have had a thread like this before!

    Home grown tomatoes straight off the vine. They taste so much better than the shop-bought ones and give off a lovely, almost aphrodisiac scent when you pick them.

    Actually pretty much all home grown fruit and veg are better, but especially tomatoes.


    mmmmm.

    That takes me right back to childhood - the smell of tomatoes as you open the door of my grandad's greenhouse.

    He used to grow peas in his garden as well, they were our favourites. We'd plant them with him then "help him" with them until they were ready to be eaten.

    The first taste of the pea pods when they were finally ready to be eaten.............

    The smell of my gran cooking jam, roughly the same time of year, roughly this time of year iirc.........


    What exactly am I doing living in a 5th floor flat in Leith?
