    Crisp, clean and freshly ironed bedding. Get in there!

    Mrs CB asking me if I fancy an early night :wink: . Get in there!

    Parking the car in a really tight space perfectly first time. Get in there!

    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.

    Thats brillaint - I'll also to my list plastic betrands lyric

    "Allez-oop! One morning
    a darling came to my home,
    a cellophane puppet with Chinese hair,
    a plaster, a hangover,
    drank my beer in a large rubber glass
    Oooo-ooo-ooo-ooo!
    like an Indian in his igloo "

    Any of Ian Dury's reasons to be cheerful, except saying 'okey dokey'. That belongs in the other thread.

    Wood in the morning (mine obviously, before you ask) :wink:
  • When the attractive waitress in the cafe looks me in the eyes and smiles. For that split second I think i'm in there. Until I realise she does that to everyone.

    When Sophie 'super suction pump deluxe no2 guzzler' baby bawls for Scotland... and then in moments crashes out to sleep and looks like an angel. The peace, the tranquility...

  • waking up every morning with my dog colin under the duvet
    Marmite on toast and Bourbon biscuits (you cant get them in spain so i have to stock up)
    Agreed the tank of petrol is some weirdly satisfying thing
    riding off the front of a group and not seeing them again
    I would imagine sellign something on ebay for more than you paid for it would be good but something I have never achieved.

    When a quick flash of the headlights at the blithering halfwit plodding along in the middle lane actually results in said muppet moving over to the empty left lane.

    I've done that. Paid £49, sold for £172, paid some ebay fees. Most cheered-up as a result.

    A croissant with a morning coffee.
