Simple pleasures - clean sheets and a coffee

Adults value weird things children can’t relate to, often involving time and space. Here are some examples:

Simple pleasures

  1. Clean bed sheets
  2. Having zero plans for the weekend
  3. Having plans cancelled
  4. Finding the perfect carpark
  5. Enjoying a morning cuppa before everyone wakes up
  6. Being left alone for the day
  7. Crossing everything off the to-do list
  8. An empty inbox
  9. A full tank of petrol
  10. A bath
  11. A daytime nap
  12. Clean windows
  13. Finding the correct Tupperware and lid right away
  14. The sound of a Champagne cork popping
