Friday Round Up

autumn creepers on the garage - jessie wants supper - surprise pocket find
jessie fetches the post - sneaky chippy lunch - bye bye old car :-(
BIG new oak front door - father-daughter bonding - day at eden hall

It's a bit of a Jessie-heavy photo today! What can I say, she's been a bit of a poser this week

I've spent most of the week looking forward to a long awaited spa day at Eden Hall.  I spent yesterday relaxing and being thoroughly spoilt in the excellent company of my best pal in the  world. So much of the time we spend together is rushed as we both have busy lives so it's always great to get her to myself for a full day with no distractions

We have The Spa Day Routine down to a fine art. First we headed to the aqua detox centre and began in the Herbal Caldarium which is a bit like a Turkish bath filled with lavender - my favourite fragrance ever! From there we headed to the rose infused steam room which is hotter and steamier, and then to the outdoor hot tubs. After a quick coffee and pains au chocolat we had our treatments, a Coconut and Milk Ritual Wrap for Liz and an Infinite Indulgence wrap for me. Being scrubbed, painted with hot mud and cocooned in hot towels on a heated bed whilst your head is massaged is pretty close to my idea of heaven! After a delicious three course lunch we staggered off to the Slumber Room for a nap ... and woke up two and a half hours later! After a quick swim in the saltwater vitality pool we went back to the conservatory for a chai latte and a sultana scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Eating and sleeping seems to dominate the day and that's just fine by me!

A day of rest was much needed as I was struck down earlier in the week with my fifth chest infection of 2012 (for goodness sake!) So I've been feeling pretty rubbish and craving warmth, cosiness and comfort food. Another bummer this week was saying goodbye to my old car when it got changed. Much as Matt took the mick when I got this car ('a gold Mercedes? Who do you think you are, P Diddy??') even he was sad to see it go as we'd both grown to love it

I spent last Sunday working at the new house, sweeping out upstairs and prepping the kitchen windows for painting again - it seems like this is all I do! Our gorgeous new oak front door was fitted and it's amazing. It's huge, 7ft to be exact, and thick and heavy, it's like a castle door!

Tomorrow I have a hair appointment in the morning, I might head into town in the afternoon to pick up some paint samples and then we're seeing my sister and her boyfriend for dinner.

What do you have planned for this weekend?

  3. Is that an egg?? Lucky you realised it was in there haha, could have been awkward if it smashed it your pocket before you'd noticed it!

    And I want your dogs :(

    1. It is! We are only getting a few a week now due to the time of year so I often just pop one in my pocket after checking the chickens and forget until I put my coat on again!

      You'll have to join the (very long) queue for the dogs I'm afraid :-) xx

  4. One day I'm going to steal Jessie away from you SHE'S SO CUTE ARGH. I want her to deliver my magazines! Also good work on the egg in the pocket, it's very clean, my chickens seem to poo all over theirs...I hope the 5th chest infection wasn't too bad, how horrible! Your weekend sounds nice and relaxing what with the paint samples xxx

    1. She's very good at it, we call her the postmistress :-) One of our hens likes to poo on the eggs too, she's a scruffy creature, we have to try to whip them out quickly before she sits on them for too long. Have a lovely weekend! xx

    1. Thanks! They do take up a lot of space and if you get a lively one (like Wilson) they tend to spend a lot of time bouncing around the place too! xx
