How have you treated yourself recently?

66Mustang66Mustang Community Co-Production Group Posts: 5,047 Disability Gamechanger
Just bought myself a treat - a small quarter-bottle of a nice cognac.

I haven’t bought any snacks to eat between meals for quite a while so I spent the money on the cognac instead. 

Looking forward to a dram this evening. (Is it called a dram with cognac?)

What things have other people have treated themselves to recently and if you have a reason behind the treat feel free to share that too. Please post below... :smiley:

    @66Mustang Och aye, that's a fine wee dram you have there!

    I bought myself a pair of dungarees in an attempt to be 'hip' and 'down with the kids'.  Unfortunately, they made me look like a walking black sack so got returned  :(  Otherwise, it was a gingerbread bunny this morning (which my other half kindly surprised me with!).

    At least you had the guts to give it a try! I’m so conservative with my clothes, I prefer to just blend in!

    A gingerbread bunny sounds really cute!

    Quite boring but I keep buying myself Easter eggs on my online shopping yummmm
    In the very near future we are treating ourselves to a new fire place before the room gets decorated in May.

    @woodbine not boring at all :yum: I would do the same in previous years but am trying hard this year...PS The accountant in me says some of the Easter eggs when on offer are better value than buying chocolate bars!!

    New fire place sounds exciting :)

    I'm all for keeping the old one but senior management is putting her foot down and i'm not brave enough to reuse  :)<3

    Agree re:easter eggs when you can easily pay 65p for a chocolate bar then 75p or even 99p is good value for Easter eggs, the were at least double that 30 years ago when our kids were little.

    well I do not treat myself too kindly mostly as always busy but I listened to my good doctor - no sugar, no gluten, no allergic reactions, no alcohol, no caffeine, plenty of water.  Feeling pretty good health wise so I treated myself with some new very inexpensive clothes. Feeling like a new person or more like the one I used to be. So good health and new clothes it is.

    Some lovely treats there! Thanks for getting us thinking positively @66Mustang!

    I haven't got round to doing this yet (for obvious reasons :smiley:) but I am REALLY looking forward to treating myself to a haircut - when I am allowed!

    So, I'd be interested in finding out what kinds of things everyone is LOOKING FORWARD to treating themselves to as well? 

    Has anybody got any nice treats planned for this weekend?

  • fluffycatfluffycat Member Posts: 215 Pioneering
    Enjoy your treat..........

    (1) Single Slice Velvet Cake! (lil bit of lux)
    (2) Beef in Veg / Special Chop Suey takeaway (saves cooking)
    (3) Selection of Lego (my hobby!)
    (4) Crispy Duck n Pancakes takeaway (for puss n me treat)
    (5) Induction Fry pan (old one more sticky, even with oil)

    Can't wait for shops to open so can buy some bath fizzes and handmade soap. (makes bath-time more special)

    I noticed a massive sale on a pair of bluetooth ear buds I've wanted for a while, so I thought I'd treat myself to those. In preparation for being able to go back out again, thought I'd update to something better sounding :)

    I bought some Bluetooth full size deep base headphones recently for half-price. They are great as often would get tangled-up before with wired-ones.

    The battery lasts 15 hours or so though can only pair one device at time. 

    Helps going for a meander with music.

    Nice, I have a super pair of headphones which are a joy to listen to music through. 30 hours of battery life which is very useful.

    I went through a phase of buying expensive headphones but being honest with myself I find really I can’t tell much of a difference between them and less expensive ones

    Of course a very cheap £1 set will sound low quality but something around £10 I’ve found does the trick. I think I can tell a small difference with higher priced ones but there is definitely some diminishing returns comparing say £1 with £10 then with £100 - the biggest jump is between £1 and £10

    Maybe I just tried the wrong ones?

    I’m not trying to detract from your purchase - just my experience - if you notice a big difference in quality then great!
  • mikehughescqmikehughescq Member Posts: 6,562 Disability Gamechanger
    Treated myself to an expensive Hotel Chocolat Easter Egg because no-one else will. 

    Prior to that at Christmas I had saved up all year and finally replaced my expensive 19 year old CD player with an even more expensive streamer and DAC. Not regretted it yet although apparently this year I do finally have to pay for the main bathroom to be repaired. Allegedly I have my priorities wrong :)

    Those of you with expensive headphone. No, you won't hear the difference unless you treat yourself to a DAC to attach to either your hi-fi or a phone. One of these will soon have you hearing what decent headphones can do.

    I think it can depend on what you're looking for really. Personally, I try to get headphones which are high resolution and support the LDAC audio codec. I've found the difference to be quite a jump compared to standard headphones, I can now hear things that are deep in the mix of a song, that I otherwise wouldn't have. 

    You're right though, the price jump isn't necessarily worth it, unless you're going to be listening to music an awful lot to justify it.

    Bought a Laser (Mono) printer as typically the ink jet is printing plain or faint pages (must dry-up / clog between uses) again.

    Laser seems clear and prominent. Think there's up to 500 pages included in the box, so value in the end. (1000 pages when get new cart in future)

    It might be the Yorkshire in me, but I can't wait to snap up some reduced Easter eggs come next Tuesday  :D  I'm also on the hairdresser bandwagon - my home colouring routine is doing little to stop the grey blighter's from taking hold.  I'll be like a new woman after a good cut and colour.

    Is that a trick question? It only holds 2 slices of bread. 
  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Posts: 4,983

    Not a trick question @MarkN88 :D We've got a 2 slicer as well, but I'm always mighty impressed when I go to someone's house and they have a 4 or even 6 slicer. I don't need one that big though, and I'd rather have one that does 2 slices well.

  • 66Mustang66Mustang Community Co-Production Group Posts: 5,047 Disability Gamechanger
    We have a fancy toaster - it is a 4 slicer but the elements heat up in pairs so you can just turn on two and not waste energy if you are only cooking 2 slices!

    I had to ask because at one point there used to be a question that people asked about how many slices of toast can you fit in your toaster and it was a trick question because you put bread in and get toast out, haha.

    I want to treat myself to a new PS5 console but its chaos trying to get one in the shops or online, demand is so great and no seller puts out any info when they are available. Thousands sell in minutes, even seconds and scammers are buying and trying to sell for double the price.
    So today I bought myself some new slippers. Wool lined for warmth and comfort.
    (Well it is something to look forward to)  :)
  • Caz_AlumniCaz_Alumni Scope alumni Posts: 626 Pioneering
    @Dragonslyer - comfy new slippers are a definite treat!

    I haven't done this yet - but thinking about it, I reckon that some different perfume might be a nice treat for me soon. Nothing expensive or flashy - just a little treat to look forward to and that would do me as my little achievement!

    Then that could be my nice new fragrance to associate with a more positive outlook for the summer of 2021 - and hopefully something that in the future will bring back memories of the better things that are still to come for us all :)

    Hopefully the PS5s will become more widely available as the year progresses. It has been a rough transition to next gen because so many people just haven't been able to get their hands on one.

    I'll be honest, I'm not a big shopper at the best of times and I don't go into Next that often - so ordinarily,  I wouldn't have thought of them for perfume. I appreciate the suggestion - thank you :)

    And shopping for a new sofa is a big decision. I can totally understand why you need to wait to go out and look round for that in person - but have you spotted any online that you quite like? Or have you not bothered looking yet?

    Enjoy your fancy baths @fluffycat :) And the idea of a cat pram is adorable! Has your cat been enjoying it?

    I finally bought myself a new phone, which is my biggest treat in a long time. My previous one packed up, so I'd been using my housemate's old work phone for the last 5 months or so 😬 It only arrived yesterday so I'm looking forward to finishing getting my settings and stuff sorted tonight and tomorrow.

    Thanks, ‘puss’ often sits on edge of bath and intrigued by bath bombs etc.

    (Enj. phone. Have so many personalised adjustments.)

    Not sure if meowing from pleasure or displeasure LOL.

    Anybody going coodgy goo would get a paw swipe LOL!

    I'm not sure Puss would enjoy getting in the bath, but I can imagine it's interesting for them to look at @fluffycat!

    I will, thanks. There are so many settings! I used a Smart Switch feature that allowed me to move over stuff from my old phone, but there are additional things I need to sort.

    @Sandy_123 Ooh nice!  I bet you feel like a new woman! I'm counting down the days to my hair appointment, and so are my greys  :D  

    Yesterday I bought a pregnancy, birth and beyond book to try and equip myself for what lies ahead a bit better.  Looking forward to reading it and making notes... gulp!

    @Cher_Scope

    That reminds me...on Top Gear they mentioned that you get an instruction manual with anything vaguely technical like a food blender or a laptop, but when you get a baby - which is pretty complicated - you don’t get anything! :D
