I just bought a new hoodie. The inside of a new hoodie, never been washed, is truly one of the best things in life. Hoodies are pretty much the only item of clothing that I will wear straight from the store, not even bothering to wash off that storeroom smell.

What are your favorite simple pleasures, GT?

Shout out also to:

• clothes fresh from the dryer / off the radiator on a cold day. Bonus points for bras and underwear.

• getting to the bus stop just as your bus pulls up

• when your husband is out of town and you can take up the whole bed and cocoon yourself in the duvet.
