2011's Daily Micropleasures - installment 10

Carrying on my daily little joys - the things we so often forget (especially amidst these awful, shocking riots) - that should make you smile. It's another biggie, as I haven't had time to write these up to my blog for aaaaagees. Here goes:

29th June - Playing childhood games. Hopscotch anyone?
She's clearly feeling pretty pleased with herself.
30th June - Cycling somewhere in the sunshine. And then feeling smug for being so eco-friendly.
1st July - A dog lying on your foot.
2nd July - When something isn't as bad as you'd thought it would be.
3rd July - Making plans with your friends.
4th July - Pampering yourself. Sing it with me: "I feel pretty! Oh so pretty..."
5th July - Being made to feel at home somewhere that's, well, not home.
6th July - When nail varnish comes off quickly and easily with remover. But hasn't chipped at all. Yes!
7th July - Unexpected free samples. Definite student win.
8th July - When you guess something in an exam then find out it was right.
9th July - When people appreciate all your effort.
10th July - Not being in a rush to get somewhere. I find this somewhat rare, to be honest.
so preeetty.
11th July - When you've made something neat and organised. And preferably colour-coded and in alphabetical order :)
12th July - Deleting enough emails so your inbox isn't nearly full. And you stop getting those annoying reminders!
13th July - Putting on fresh pyjamas.
14th July - Having your hair brushed.
15th July - Having the house to yourself. And thus the option to do a Phoebe (from Friends... who else?) and walk round naked if so desired.
Impressive indeed.
16th July - The first bite into a piece of chewing gum.
17th July - The "night before going on holiday" feeling.
18th July - Walking into an air-conditioned shop when it's hot.
19th July - Being really into a book.
20th July - Swimming in the sea. So much more fun than a pool, am I right?
21st July - When something lives up to its hype.
22nd July - Jumping into a pool on a hot day.
23rd July - Freshly squeezed orange juice. So. Good.
24th July - Forgetting the "real world" while on holiday.
25th July - Showering after coming back from the beach. Bye bye sand, hello clean.
26th July - Hair lightening in the sun.  And then being asked by everyone if you've dyed it and triumphantly stating it's natural.
27th July - When a good parking space frees up just as you arrive.
28th July - A cooling breeze on a hot day.
29th July - Making contact with friends after ages.
30th July - Coming home after a holiday. Hello, pink fluffy dressing gown of comfort.
31st July - When people notice your tan.
1st August - When you hear a passer-by say they like something you're wearing. My hot pink jeans, to be specific.
2nd August - Finding a cheap deal.
3rd August - When people are interested and ask about you.
4th August - Getting on well with a new person.
Do I hear a nom-diddly-nom?
5th August - Keeping up little traditions. I ALWAYS go out for Thai whenever I see one of my friends. And ALWAYS have the Pad Thai.
6th August - A catch-up with your friends over lunch. And feeling very civilised doing so.
7th August - Finally having the time to do something.
8th August - Wearing new make-up for the first time.
9th August - Clearing out old things. As hard as it is to let them go... *sniff*

And that, dear readers, brings us up to today! I hope that's cheered you up even just a little bit, and if you like it, why not check out my last lot of micropleasures here. Oh, and do comment with micropleasures of your own... I'd love to hear them :)
