    The first look at a hotel room, you are staying in, the smell, the sitting on the bed, looking at the bathroom opening ever drawer and looking out the window :D

    I really miss drinking milk straight out of the glass bottle. Ice cold, fresh from the delivery van.

    The feel of crunching an empty, but intact, cigarette carton under my foot.

    Sometimes I forget I've ordered stuff online, then get a nice surprise when the package comes through the post.

    Cold bedsheets.

    Booking a much needed holiday.
    Arriving at destination of much needed holiday.
    The first sip of a lovely milky coffee.
    Hearing a song on the radio that just seems really fitting at that moment.

    I love

    * Waking up and realizing my boyfriend has stayed the night and he's there for a cuddle!
    * A lazy kiss on the shoulder/neck when you're still half asleep.
    * The feeling when you walk out into the sunshine after finishing work early.
    * Wandering around town for ages and sitting outdoors with a lovely cold pint of cider!
    * Watching GossipGirl. (sitting in bed: OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!!!)
    * The feeling of getting all dressed up for a girls night out, and the few hours of drinking, chatting, hair curling and makeup application! :)
    * Talking about history with people who were alive for certain historical events.
    * The feeling you have after bagging a bargain! :)
    * Summer loving! <3

    I love the feeling of coming home at dusk, having been out all day in the sun and here, there and everywhere on my bike. Tired but happy in the knowledge that you've made the best of a beautiful midsummer day.

    ok - this is going to sound like a sad housewifey thing but....

    ... but buying something new for the house (furniture/art etc) that you love that makes you smile every time you look at it because it looks so good, and walking past the room it's in and poking your head in just to look at it!

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 767 ✭✭✭ HxGH

    The smell of new books
    Feeling of satisfaction after cleaning the room/house
    Being outside working hard/in the rain all day and having a hot shower in the evening, bliss
    Hot buttered toast
    Lazy weekend lie ins
    Watching a marathon of my "Lovejoy" box-set on a rainy afternoon
    Christmas morning
    Smell of my horse
    Real fire on a wintery evening
