List: My favourite senses

I know it’s been a week off, but turning 25 ended up a lot busier than I anticipated.

So back to the list. Here are my five senses and my five favourite experiences with them:

My 5 favourite sights

  • The sky before, during and after sunset
  • A young child or baby smiling
  • A cat’s eyes as it’s about to pounce on a toy
  • Rare animals in the wild, such as the deer we saw in Scotland
  • The moon and stars on a clear night

My 5 favourite sounds

  • Rain on the windows or roof of a building or car
  • Classical/instrumental music (the only kind I love just for the sound)
  • Birds in the morning
  • Silence (rare and peaceful)
  • My boyfriend singing

My 5 favourite smells

  • Fresh bread
  • Wet grass
  • Geranium
  • Fresh laundry
  • Men’s products (such as lynx and aftershave)

My 5 favourite tastes

  • Galaxy chocolate melting on my tongue
  • Sour fruits, particularly strawberries (without added sugar)

  • Most things done on a BBQ
  • Marmite on toast
My 5 favourite touches
  • Clean bedsheets

  • Satin labels
  • Fingernails lightly on my skin, especially my feet
