AtoZChallenge Tickled Pink T

As the challenge goes on for this A to Z writing extravaganza the words get slightly tougher as my theme is feelings. I was considering ‘thankful’, but then I thought I would simply share what tickles me pink and I admit perhaps some are more awe-filled and not so tickled, but joy tickles me so awe is tickly too (smile).


  1. verb (used with object), tickled, tickling. 1. to touch or stroke lightly with the fingers, a feather, etc., so as to excite a tingling or itching sensation in; titillate. 2. to poke some sensitive part of the body so as to excite spasmodic laughter. To fill with mirth or pleasure; delight. Very pleased; delighted.

So feeling tickled pink is so much about feeling absolutely delighted.

What Makes Me Tickled Pink?

I love animals, adore cats and they absolutely fill me with delight. There is nothing better than having a cat rub up against your leg and purr in your face.


Bird Song

I love to tone, chant and sing my heart out. 

Travelling To New Places By Airplane

As some of you may know I also have another blog called Travelling Footprints . I have not been travelling in some time so it’s taking a bit of a hiatus right now, but I get soooo excited when I am flying somewhere new, I am seriously a child in a sweet shop.

Kissing Someone I love

Who doesn’t like kissing? Not only is it excellent foreplay it’s just plain yummy. Kissing gets me totally in the moment, connected with the person I am kissing and makes me absolutely tickled pink.

Aromatherapy Massage

I rarely get the chance to go see a professional, but when I do I am in heaven. I love the smell of the essential oils and getting a full body massage. Just letting my body let go and receive some attention, yum!

Outdoor Cafes In The Summer

I am a sucker for outdoor cafes. I think sometimes I should live somewhere you can eat outside all year round. I love pavement cafes where you can have breakfast or a coffee and watch the world go by.

Walking In Nature And Discovering Magical Views

Receiving Flowers Out Of The Blue

Pink Roses
I rarely receive flowers. I have given flowers a lot over the years, but rarely receive a real bouquet of flowers and when I do I light up inside.
