Revisiting the kitchen and picking the hardened cheese bits off the foil after (the remnants of a cheese on toast making exercise).

Similarly Darren, licking the foil top after opening a pot of yoghourt, watch for sharp edges though!

This appears to be the only down-side to buying large pots of yogurt. You only get one lid to 5 servings.

Leaving the office in the evening with all e-mails answered, all orders processed, all papers filed away and desk clean and tidy.

Sometimes simple things satisfy after mental exertion. Sometimes because they are useful and undemanding. Those you listed, I guess something to do with texture.

Free giveaway food promotions at Waterloo Station during morning rush hour.

I've had lots of nut bars, yoghurts and fizzy drinks recently, and now have a Muller Rice. It's actually quite tasty. I'd never have bought one otherwise.

It’s not worth anything, I’m sure, as the book’s condition isn’t great. But it’s a nice connection.

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

Any activity that my new activity tracker gadget considers "effective training".
My wife has exactly the same gadget, but hers counts a lot more for the same activities. (something to do with different base heart rates)

At least that is less dramatic than a red snow warning. But still...
