Things that give me pleasure

A day like to-day when then sun is shining

Seeing a bird rest on a branch of a bush I’ve just planted

Noticing that my hellebores have survived another winter and are blooming, like to-day


Looking in my bread machine to discover that the bread has risen perfectly when it’s for someone else as to-day for my daughter

After breaking the ice on the bird bath, seeing them all queuing up for a turn to bathe

Listening to a favourite piece of music when you can relax and drink it in

Watching my dogs sleep peacefully

Watching a painting I've been struggling with, just ‘come right’

On answering the telephone and hearing one of my family say ‘Hi Nan or Hi Mum’

The sheer bliss of getting in to a warm bed after a chilly night out

The unexpected pleasure of a lovely bunch of flowers from the kitchen manufacturers where I purchased mine from


The sense of freedom by having the privilege of walking my dogs almost anywhere I want

Being sound, mentally and physically, I say this after reading of the struggle a woman is having just getting her legs to move after a spinal injury

Most of all

Being British !

I'll stop here as I don't wish to be a bore

I expect you could all come up with some ‘ exclusive to you’  pleasurable moments
