This weekend the Mr and I went on a lovely night away. This is something we have not done a lot of since having children. All of our time is spent with the children and that is the way we like it, however once in a while its nice to have some time away from our responsibilities and chill out on our own.
A few weeks back I won a competition on Twitter to visit The Oxford Belfry and have dinner, breakfast and spa treatment. We both chose to have back, shoulder and neck massage.
We arrived at the hotel at 1pm and our room was ready. We went and got into our swimming gear and headed down to the pool with sauna and steam room. Our massage was booked in for 2pm so we had a quick dip in the pool and then headed off for our treatment. I had been looking forward to this for so long since I won it and now it was finally here. Our time to relax and chill out. The massage was lovely and we both really enjoyed it. came out feeling all tired and floaty.
We went back to the pool, went into the sauna and steam room and relaxed around the pool on the loungers. After a couple of hours we headed back to the room. The Mr then watched some TV whilst I sat in a boiling hot bubble bath and read with no interruptions. Something that I don’t get chance to do at home. It was such a relaxing day, with nothing to worry about at all.
We had a lovely evening meal and drinks together and sat and had time for ourselves as a couple rather than as a Mummy and Daddy. Obviously the kids were never far from our thoughts and we both missed them like crazy.
We then had a lovely cooked breakfast and left. We couldn’t wait to get back to the kids and they were both very pleased to see us home. We had a lovely day when we got home and did everything Little man wanted to do. All in all it was a fantastic weekend and something we loved doing.
