A survey just last week discovered that finding a £10 note in an old pair of jeans, getting into bed with freshly washed sheets and going on holiday are among life’s greatest pleasures.
The poll, carried out by Three Barrels Brandy, took the opinion of 3,000 adults and aimed to discover what man kinds greatest pleasures are.
Sunshine was found to be a substantial cause of good moods – with examples such as waking up to a sunny day, sitting in the sun and driving with the car windows down on a sunny day all appearing in the top 20.
Other happy moments include being surprised with flowers or chocolates, getting a nice message or cuddle from a loved one, or getting a thank you card in the post.
Slightly less romanticised examples included ‘snogging’, lads nights out and winning a tenner on the lottery.
Overall, it serves as a nice reminder that simple things are what give people most pleasure.
