It’s often the simplest things that provide life’s little pleasures, like feeling the sun warm through your skin after months of cold, dark weather. Or turning the pillow over to the ‘cold’ side in the morning and having a snooze on the cool, fresh cotton. In fact, it seems that temperature can play an integral part in making or breaking the experience of some of our favourite things but of course it’s all a little subjective. Take a look at our list of life’s little pleasures and see whether you agree on whether they should be enjoyed hot or cold.
It has to be enjoyed piping hot! There’s no two ways about it, cold soup is just not acceptable even when it’s served in a Michelin star restaurant!
Now this can depend completely on the weather and indeed the climate. During the winter there’s nothing better than coming in from the cold to a warm cosy house and getting all toasty in front or the fire. Whereas in the summer or on holiday there’s nothing nicer than coming indoors to a cool off in a chilly pad. Whatever the season or your preference you can heat and cool your home with a range of aircon units to enjoy the best of both worlds.
It’s one of the most controversial of the little pleasures, is pizza better enjoyed hot or cold? When it comes to pizza it’s all about creating a balance, that is enjoying most of it when it’s hot and fresh and then savouring a few cheeky slices to be enjoyed cold in the morning.
A shower must be enjoyed nice and warm, even if it’s boiling outside the thought of putting your head under a cold shower still sends shivers up the spine. It may well wake you up but it also conjures memories of broken boilers and icy showers on cold winter mornings.
Without a second thought you’d probably say you prefer your holidays hot, it’s one of the reasons you regularly leave the UK to catch some rays in a more exotic location. However, what about all the great locations you can have on a ‘cold’ holiday? Like skiing in the Alps or experiencing the mesmerising Northern lights in Norway? Now that’s food for thought!
