A book - or more often books plural and perhaps now and then a book, and for a change a book.
Sometimes I find a little treasure of a book and hug it with glee all day.

Other treats: ice-cream, chocolate
Best of all : those crunchy little salty bretzels
Special occasions: box of chocs, champagne

No, it's nice to have a flute of champagne. As with anything else, too much just spoils the pleasure.
I'm eating too much chocolate at the moment, so many enticing chocolate wonders beckoning from the shop windows and shelves ...  but alas it will go to my waist and hips if I'm not careful ... sigh ... very happy

Mmmm. I must admit, I do love a bit of chocolate now and then, although I don't consider that a treat - more of a necessity!

A rare treat for me these days is to get out into the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle - or to be high up in the mountains, catch the splendour of a beautful sunset over the water or drink in the atmospheric hue of a rainbow after a fresh fall of rain. The first crocus of spring, the scent of lilac wafting in the breeze ...

A treat for me is a beautiful slow hike in the countryside and then to sit down with a picnic and take in all the views..... that would be very like Candlelight's picture. Lovely picture Candlelight. After saying that I wouldn't say no to the champers and chocs  Smile

Hello Sweet-william, and welcome to our peaceful mountain retreat.
I was waiting for you to post in the Introduction Thread, but after reading your post here, and seeing that your location is Ireland, and that you seem to share the same love of the mountain views as I do (I chose that picture because it reminds me of somewhere back in Ireland that's very dear to my heart) I have a feeling that you may have a connection to that "little bit of heaven" also and that perhaps we have a lot more in common ...

Very happy to see you here, Sweet-william  very happy very happy (my mother's favourite flowers by the way) and I hope that you will enjoy the views from this mountain retreat.

Hello Candlelight, thank you so much for your lovely welcome. I am very much enjoying reading everything, and learning and understanding. I shall be a regular visitor, that I promise.

I thought my username "Sweet-william" was very appropriate...... as they were my Nana's favourite flower..... I have fond memories of picking them in her garden and selling them with my brother   very happy  very happy
(ahh such great memories)

I'm enjoying the views from this mountain retreat already and I've only joined! Well done to you.... I'm so happy / thrilled for you.  very happy  xxxx

Just poured myself a drop of Baileys, but when I went to the freezer - no ice.  sadface   In fact, the freezer is bare, except for some ice-cream, so I spooned in some ice-cream in my drink instead. Mmmmmm I've discovered a lovely new little treat!

Hi there lar-lar  very happy
It wasn't specified anywhere that "Little Treats" meant only food.

__ Cape gooseberries _
and, as always, Champagne

Expensive tastes, our Stardust.  Smile (champers)

A real treat for me would be a regular appointment at the hairdressers, letting someone else do it all.
With a relaxing massage to follow. Well, I suppose that would be more of a luxury really, rather than a treat.


I like to be treated to flowers, because for me that's a double treat; the flowers themselves and the thought that comes with them.


I'm easy to please.  Smile   A cup of tea made by myself - no treat. Made by someone else, a special treat and always tastes better.

The things we take for granted and don't really appreciate are all in fact treats.
Just try doing without them and you'll soon see.

Hi there, sammi. I haven't spoken to you for a while. How are you doing?
I'm all packed, ready for my flight out of Orkney tomorrow. You, Cas and
LB will be missed. I'm so excited about meeting the others. Wow! I can't
believe it yet.  lol

Tonight treated myself to a chinese but was disappointing,too greasy so then it doesnt feel like a treat..like candlelight i love flowers,not sure about the massage though,never been massaged by a stranger,think i would feel uncomfortable-

Searcher , see you on saturday ,really looking forward to it all! such a shame you're far away stardust.
