The 12 sober treat Days of Christmas – Day 10

Ten Lords A Leaping – well the only place this sober treat has me leaping is into bed!  I struggle with self-care around the soft and cosy suggestion.  Do I not think I’m worth soft and cosy things?  Maybe.  I did a big sober treat splurge last New Year in the sales and bought myself a beautiful shirt and trousers – which I have yet to wear.  What’s that about?   Am I saving it for a special occasion?  Maybe.  I need to wonder on this one some more ……

But I did buy myself a little sober treat earlier this month.  It’s winter here and getting cold and I love my bed so yes I bought myself some beautifully fluffy and warm bed socks!!  How glamorous for a 46 year old women 😉  But you know what I LOVE them!!  I love to have a deep bath with bubbles and candles early on in the evening, get into my pj’s and socks and sup on my herbal tea in front of the fire whilst nibbling on chocolate and watching Breaking Bad.  My new decadence! 🙂

soft and cosy socks

What soft and cosy sober treat could you get for yourself?  Maybe you want to follow the tradition and get yourself something to do with lords a leaping – a Lord of the Dance DVD, or a Lord of the Rings DVD or a copy of the book Lord of the Flies?  I shall be looking out for more soft and cosy things to buy from here on in – that’s for sure!

  1. Very early on I bought myself a super soft cozy blanket. My sobriety blanket. So much of the good about being sober for me it tied to sleep so I love to sleep with it every night. It’s a good reminder.

    1. Ooh I like the sound of that TMSN – a sobriety blanket to keep me warm at night! 🙂

  2. Fuzzy socks and Breaking Bad? What more does one need 🙂 I like to rub thick cream on my feet and then put my bed socks on, a great soft and cozy self-care treat. xx

    1. Indeed Lori?! 😉 Ooh more self-care ideas – thick cream on feet, thankyou!

  3. Dear Lucy,
    Those socks look awesome! I LOVE being in my pajamas and socks and curled up with a book. I also love warm cozy scarves!
    However, if I want to see a Lord a Leaping, I could give my hubby a COOKIE! LOL

    1. Love a bit of thermals myself Prim – and am wearing a pair of socks right now (under my regular socks). Too many years smoking has knackered my peripheral circulation :/
