    Hi TSR,

    We all know things like flash cars/big houses that peoplpe buy to male themselves happy, however what are those small things that really satisfy you, even if they are completely worthless and small?

    For me:

    • The warm air that hits you as you get off a plane in a warm country
    • getting all the peel of an orange in one go
    • swirling your knife around in a new tub of butter and making faces/pictures
    • walking down what would be a busy road at three in the morning when it's completely silent
    • the feel of pages in a book
    • running your fingers along an iron fence, or better a stick and making that noise

    I will add more when I think of them. I was just interested if anybody had any similar ppleasures, or any completey different ones? Here's the place to share!

    When you've written on paper and after, you can feel the dents from the writing on the other side - hard to explain

    Waking up at 4/5 in the morning, actually feeling awake and just looking out of the window for a little while, admiring how quiet and peaceful things are when no one's around.

    When your mum brings me chocolate milk when I'm revising/doing homework.
    She's always doing that with other people. She never brings me any
