My blogging comrade Robert at the Solitary Walker has come up with a wonderful idea which I am shamelessly pinching:

As part of a brilliantly life-enhancing practice of mindfulness, awareness, and thankfulness, he suggests we write a list of ten simple pleasures.  It should be done quickly and without thinking about it.  The joy then comes in reflecting on the list, giving thanks for the things, reading other people’s.  You can read Robert’s post here along with some others.  Here’s mine – I’d love to read your list.

1. the smell of grass after rain
2. a strong cup of tea after a long walk
3. followed by a pint of good bitter
4. picking up an egg that is still warm
5. a fishfinger sandwich
6. being up early when the house is quiet
7. a surprise packet in the post
8. Hail Smiling Morn
9. rubbing Grangers Wax into my boots
10. waiting to listen to the Ashes on Radio Four

Reblogged this on Halcyon Sea Swimmers-Greystones and commented:
Today was maybe the first day of this season’s winter swimming, a simple pleasure for me that brings enormous reward.
