    The things that I really, really like thread...

    Well, we have the 'things that annoy you thread', so in the interests of balance and positivity I thought I'd start this with a few things that make me happy and smile (other than family, loved ones and Wolves wins of course):

    Vapour trails in a clear blue sky
    The smell of freshly cut grass
    The cold side of the pillow
    Fresh sheets
    Having a shower when I'm tired
    Melted butter on hot toast
    Cold beer on a hot day
    Kids pretending they've got a joke when they clearly haven't
    Hearing a favourite song in an unexpected place
    Phone calls from people I haven't spoken to in ages
    The sound of a full on out of control belly laugh


    There are loads more but I don't want to bore everyone. Some of these are cliches, but the thing about cliches is they are usually true, and some of these things are just nice and make me happy! Feel free to share the things that make you happy rather than over indulge in the things that annoy you thread...It's good for the soul.

    Edit: My money is on this getting much less of a response than the things that annoy us...

    Write down everything you know about football on the back of a postage stamp. In the space you have left over you can draw a picture...

    The feeling a couple of hours after a very intense workout or match, whatever you catch my drift
    Nostalgia in all kind of forms
    Taking a shit
    Kate Upton
    A warm breeze
    Stepping out of an airport in a country you've never seen before

    There's a few for the moment.

    I see your cold side of the pillow and raise you a cold side of the quilt.

    I love knowing i haven't got to get up for anything in the morning and being able to stop up playing games or watching pointless TV until stupid o'clock, something i can hopefully get back to after tomorrow after finishing my dissertation, shame i'll have to give it up forever soon if i find a proper job.

    The greatest feeling ever was a "snow day" when you were at school. The joy of getting up in the morning, radio on, and hearing "All schools in Walsall are closed". Get in. I'll be playing on my Megadrive all day, then.

    These days, I get a lot of satisfaction from my dicking around on Excel sheets with my Wolves stuff. I lead quite a sad existence sometimes.

    Otherwise, a Saturday morning walk when the sun is shining on a crisp February morning. Oh aye. Best part of the week.

    I agree with pretty much all of that Toon, especially the bits in bold.

    I really really like:
    Being fully content in love/life/music/sports etc, ( I achieved this from 2007-09 in all aspects of my life, was in a relationship with an amazing girl, playing to 750 people every 6 months or so, and witnessing Wolves get promoted at Molineux),

    Seeing Kevin Doyle score....,

    Australian Wine, red or white, doesn't matter, I love em both,

    Socialising,

    Flirting,

    I'm more concerned about you turning into a woman. A glass of wine and a book in the bath?!

    Good. It's me who's the forum metrosexual, not you. Still a bit girly though.

    Back to things I like;

    A proper breakfast sandwich. Bacon, egg and mushroom on crusty bread being a personal favourite. No better way to start the day.
    Acting daft and singing like a loon to music TV on a Friday night. I'm a vocal superstar in my own head. People who have heard me disagree.
    Memories of my Grandad, my favourite person to ever walk this planet.
    Talking about football. Sounds obvious as we're erm, on a football forum, but I could talk all day about it, every day, and never get bored.
    Getting fit after years of not being able to get fit due to injury and illness. Exercise is great for the mind as well as the body.

    Well i could say yes to virually all of the above, so i'll try and add a few not already covered.

    Walking my dog along the beach in the winter when the waves are crashing in and the wind is trying it's best to get my hat and clothes off.
    Sunday morning , having a 'winnie the pooh with the sunday papers' most times now it's a book here.
    cooking for friends.
    Sitting around the table in my dining room with good friends, still talking, hours after the Sunday breakfast was finished, but with a fresh pot of tea and coffe on the table.
    Working out a problem, (usually something i'm making) and seeing the solution to the construction actually work.
    Getting up early and taking two steaming cups of tea back to bed when my lady is staying over, doesn't happen often, as she lives in Germany, and her husband doesn't approve.
    Sitting the whole day in a little cafe at the square in Monte Marte, Paris. Starting with croissants and hot chocolate, wine, bread and cheese for lunch, and a good steak and thowe silly, thin, french pomme frittes for supper, and watching the world pass by for the whole day.

    Surely you can cope with 20 seconds exercise when you are hungover?

    Morning, gents. Seems a nice thread on which to start posting again. Interesting and pleasant that it's so non-materialistic so far.

    Going to the pub for a lunchtime pint and staying till closing time.
    Catching the wave when body surfing.
    Executing a perfect splashless dive.
    Games of pinball where you seem never to fall, despite being neither deaf, dumb nor blind.
    Any of my infrequent trips to Molineux, regardless of the result.
    A gig where the band plays all the songs you want to hear and you leave totally satisfied.
    The tickly feeling when wind blows through your t-shirt.
    A full day in the blazing sun at the beach.
    Putting shoes and socks on after such a day at the beach.
    Buying a new record, preferably vinyl, but a cd will do.
    Buying a new book.
    Talking absolute shite with mates.
    That golf shot where you hear but don't feel the connection.
    That blast of warm air when you get off the plane in a hot country.
    A really long walk with the dog.
    The Adam & Joe 6 Music show

    Not sickly at all Paddy, but I think soaking a book in a bath is taking things into a different space though.

    I have a shower every day, but on the 10 occasions a year I have a bath, I love a large single malt and a good book in the bath until my toes have gone white and wrinkly....

    I fluffed a drive yesterday, and then hit a 5 wood second, about 190 yards, with draw, to within 2 inches of the pin. I will never be able to replicate it and probably not the draw. It did feel great.

    Ah, that gives me one for me.

    The times I play a snooker shot that John Higgins would be proud of. It happens once a session, generally. Infuriating that you know you can do it, just not all the time like the blokes off the TV. Golf's the same. Both games of fractions.

    Well, if you know he doesn't approve, don't be so selfish Pavlos, take her coffee instead!

    She'd have been well impressed if you'd thrown up in the middle of it..... or just after it too.

    That made me laugh!
