What makes you close your eyes in bliss?

Mine is lobster mornay, a scalp massage and stickydate pudding.

My foot spa. Oh how my mother derided me when I got it - "Your father had one for years and only used it twice!!" I use mine every night at the moment and it just... Mmmmm,.

I love getting my back scratched. I get really itchy, so nothing better than my DH scratching it for me.

Scalp massage at the hairdresser.

I just had a haircut and an AMAZING head massage. It's the main reason why I go to this particular hairdresser.

The hot water in my hair when I'm having my hair washed at the hairdresser.  I'm not really into head massages but they could rinse my hair until the cows come home.

Someone brushing my hair (Not the same when i do it)

I love the fact that massage is coming up so much in this thread original.gif Makes me feel pretty special, as a person who's work is to GIVE massage.

And I must admit, its pretty awesome when I get one too.

Sooooo many things!

Stepping under a beautiful hot shower when I know I won't be interrupted by a toddler wanting me to sing and dance for them.

I also agree with the hairdresser head massage thing - it's just lovely, as is the hair rinsing.

A cold cold beer after a busy day working hard in the garden.

A really really good foot massage.

That semi-comatose feeling after filling my belly with amazing amazing food, just before I start wondering if I can actually walk any more...

Right now I'd LOVE to lie down on my stomach but being 32 weeks pregnant that's not going to work... I would so go oooooh... I'm tempted to go and get a pregnancy massage just so I can lie down on a table with a hole in it for my tummy!

A bath.  Ours is too small for me (and I'm not large by any means).  It's just a dinky bathroom.  Whenever we go on holidays, I always pick a room with a spa.

Also, getting a head massage at the hair salon.  Bliss.

"drawing" on my back with fingers.

Definitely this.

I'm really ticklish but i love a gentle massage (... I am actually currently "owed" one lol, might have to claim it ...).

Another one for the scalp massage from the hair dresser.

And as strange as this is, i find it really relaxing to play with someone else's hair. DH and his best mate frequently argue over who's turn it is when they see my fingers start to get twitchy and play with my own hair. Mate actually fell asleep with his head in my lap last time i was playing with his hair. Kinda cute until DH started thinking of mean ways to wake him up haha.

A bath. With really hot water and a good book. I haven't had one since the night before I had DD as we don't have one. I'm seriously tempted to go to my fathers one day, hand him his grand daughter and hide in his bath for a few hours. Tounge1.gif

Climbing into clean sheets.

Walking though soft beach sand. It's been YEARS and I miss it.

Tickles. I particularly love it on my back, chest and face. Actually I just love it everywhere!! I'm lucky enough to have a DP who does this for me every night (unless he's away for work).

I just have to make sure he gets something every now and then wink.gif

Edited for triple post.

Dh brushing my hair

Drinking a cold beer in a hot bath

I actually don't like massage. I don't really like being touched too much. Most of what people have said so far makes me cringe. I especially hate being tickled or having my feet touched.

I can't really remember anything that does make me feel like that. Maybe some really decadent cocktail and dessert.
