...to counter the other thread.

For me, off the top of my head:

- the perfect cuppa
- seeing someone fall over
- laughing till I almost piddle myself

Hearing the kids laugh
The perfect pint of Guinness / Tim Taylor's IPA
Waking up just before the alarm is about to go off
Hearing the words "I admit it, you are right"
Good vanilla ice cream / chocolate

Hearing about someone else's little annoyances, especially if they're mine too!

hearing those magic words
'tap me on the back of the head in 45 minutes, I have to get ready for work'

Going back to sleep when you wake up in the morning.

An unexpected spring day when you can take your cuppa outside for the first time.

- The first Eiskaffee of the year when you have to wear a pair of sunglasses

- It did exactly what it said on the box

A nice cold beer in the garden.

I finished at ClientCo today, and they gave me a bottle of quite decent Cava as a leaving/thank-you present.

It was only a one-month gig. Jolly decent of them I thought :)

Negging MF. I know I shouldn't but I know how much he cares about rep and his position in the rep chart.

Thinking you've run out of fags at midnight after the nearby shops have closed, then finding a full packet in your coat pocket :smokin

No the one after looks down on the rest of you. You're not the only one at the current summit now :smokin:

A generous helping of 1973 Armagnac Castarède, or any half decent vintage Armagnac. In a proper glass.

Fresh snowfall on a long, undulating piste through breathtaking scenery.

Purry affection from one of the catbeasts, first thing (normally around 0530) in the morning.

Driving on excellent open country roads without a gatso in sight.

Sitting up front in a helicopter (resisting the temptation to mess with all the switches and buttons).

Hiring an outboard while holidaying on an island somewhere warm, and just scooting off to another island.

It is a nice little lift in life, especially when it's retaliatory after he gets upset when someone is "in his spot" in the rep charts :D

Thanks SM, not sure how I jumped that many rep points but I ain't complaining. :wink
