I was recently asked, how do I treat myself?
My immediate answer was "chocolate, I love chocolate".
But the next day, I got to thinking. A treat is an occasional thing, not the almost everyday occurrence that chocolate is in my life.
(Did the question instead mean how do I treat myself as a person?
Harshly? Never. Kindly? Yes. I'm easy-going and easy on myself.)
So what is it that I occasionally treat myself with?
Pavlova - on my birthday - yum!
Rose scented liquid handwash in the bathroom - usually I have the generic store brand. When the rose runs out, it's back to the generic, which is actually quite nice.
Hot bubble bath - this is quite rare, as lying back against the bath aggravates the arthritis pain in my neck, even with a rolled towel as cushioning.
REAL butter on my toast - cholesterol be damned!
A bus ride into the hills, or out to the beach - with my camera if I remember to pick it up on the way out the door.
Hot chocolate in a cafe - instead of going home for a mug of milo.
Not a very exotic list - but then I'm a simple person, with simple tastes.
What treats do you spoil yourself with?
