It's really nice to have weekends back after having a job for ages you're not only working the weekend, you're there to make sure other people are having a good time while on THEIR weekend off. Don't get me wrong, I never want to be the kind of person that *wishes* for friday, but at the minute it's just nice to have the same time off as everyone else... to do not a lot on sunday if that's what I want to do. Have a late breakfast & perhaps a wander round the shops, lots of tea & then Come Dine With Me & a roast.

This weekend we went off to a lovely country hotel for the night, we had cream teas & lots more teas & a little swim, float around in the jacuzzi & got frizzed up in the steam room (my hair, that is) had some really good food too. If you're looking for somewhere a bit different to stay Hand Picked Hotels are really good, usually can get dinner & brekkie & maybe some canapes thrown in too :)

Teapot & tea in a compartment in the wardrobe, now that's my idea of a wardrobe. They never give you enough milk though. Why IS that.

Massive room, so nice to walk around while you're getting ready, rather that having to dodge the wall/chest of drawers/wardrobe/cat/dog/both.

Really nice thick curtains.

This is what the rest of the hotel looked like too, a bit like a castle... this is the health spa, actually bigger than it looks!


  1. Looks lovely! Glad you had a nice time :)
    I know what you mean about weekends - working in a cinema did that to me! It's the best feeling ever to have weekends like normal people!
