Okay, aside from a little bit of Oooh Aaah Paul McGrath, if you know what I mean (I realise that my foreign readers won’t get the embarrassing rhyming reference to getting jiggy with it), here’s a contented-sigh-inducing list of things that make me go Aahhhh….
That first slug of tea after a long day The climax of a favourite tune
The first holiday glimpse of the ocean Writing something beautiful
Surrendering my weight into a comfortable bed
Sliding into a hot bubble bath The tightest of bear hugs
Reading the first page of a novel and knowing that this book is going to rock
Taking time out in nature The sound of rain beating off a tin roof
WAKING UP TO AN INCREDIBLE SNOW SCENE Swimming solo
The sky in all its forms and shades and PaTteRn$
Beauty… from nature to a photograph to a piece of music to a particularly pleasing male form…
Freewheeling after cycling up a steep incline
Sunshine on my skin Newly changed bedclothes
The scent of yellow furze and freshly cut grass
The blast of hot air as I step off the plane in an exciting foreign location
Lighting a candle just because…
The first gasp of breath after an extraordinary belly laugh
Now, do fill me in on some of the things that make you go Aahhhh…

What a gorgeous post full of beautiful references! Your first cup of tea of the day: I can SO relate to that….
Thanks Kate. It was a pleasure putting it together 🙂
Ah I love all of these images – that teapot! Just getting off my feet is enough to make me go ‘aahhhh’
Just checked out your blog- I can really relate to your posts and they’re really funny 😀
Getting to sleep in
I never had the chance to tell you how much I like the way you’re writing this blog. I think this post is a good opportunity to do so (“I realise that my foreign readers won’t get the embarrassing rhyming reference to getting jiggy with it”) 😉
I have to admit I discovered your blog through the articles you post on facebook. And it’s always delightful to read some of your English articles. I also have to say it’s a pleasant way for me not to forget my English which is sometimes spoiled by German since our stay in Munich! Hope all goes well for you. Take care. Lucie.
Hey Lucie, thanks for the lovely comment and great to hear from you!!!
How are things going for you?
Hope you’re well too. xxx
