Celebrating a Special Birthday

Last week was a very special birthday for Husband and I decided to book a surprise weekend break to celebrate. We stayed local but being able to get away just the two of us is such a luxury given we don't have a lot of people to watch the kids and only my MIL nearby to take them overnight.

We arrived at our hotel just after 3pm, checked in and headed straight to the spa. We started off in the steam room but it wasn't on so we left and went to the Jacuzzi. After chilling in the bubbles for 10 minutes, we headed to the sauna. It was really warm in there so we didn't stay too long. A quick look in the steam room and we could see it was working so we headed in to get rid of our blocked noses. We were the only ones in there so we got to lie across the seats and rest our eyes. Bliss!

I had booked massages for us both as part of the deal. We used to get massages once a month for ages but the girl who came to our house stopped doing the treatments so we've not had one in ages.  I get a lot of tension in my shoulders so it felt so good to have some of the knots worked out.

After a quick shower and a few episodes of Blindspot, we headed to dinner in the hotel. The meal was lovely! I had vegetable tempura, Thai green curry and a caramel, chocolate and toffee pavlova to finish whilst Husband had Cullen Skink, steak and chips, and a sticky toffee pudding to finish.

We fell into bed, exhausted and full. We watched a few more episodes of Blindspot and fell asleep around midnight. Typical that we were then awake at 7.30am, an hour before my alarm was due to go off.

The breakfast was just as good as dinner. We checked out just after 10:30am and went to collect the kids from their Gran's house. It was so nice to enjoy some time together just the two of us.
