Well what a beautiful day I had yesterday… We arrived at 8-30am and was greeted with a hot herbal drink with cranberries and something, We signed in and got our itinerary for the day, we were given our lunch times and my facial was at 3-30pm, My daughters massage was booked for 3pm.
We headed to the lockers and changed into our bathers and donned on our soft fluffy white dressing gowns, stowed our gear and headed for the juice bar and I ordered a smoothie a cocktail of kiwi pineapple banana and applejuice,I ordered a slice of toast.. What arrived was 3 slices of toast and marmalade..
We then headed for the changing rooms, and then headed for the Pool.. The water is sooooo warm, I swam, grimacing now and again as my shoulder protested, But it got easier as I swam..
After about an hour in the pool having used the Jacuzzis and putting my shoulder under the therapeutic pummelling of the water features that gush out water with force and mentally asking for all the garbage I mentally carry to be washed away with it. We then went to the steam room..
And Hello!… Where are you?.. as I groped my way around to sit on the mosaic tiled circular seats around the central column.. I slithered of my seat to then cool down.. We then went to the Ice dispenser and washed ourselves in slivers of Ice… Yes you heard ‘ICE’… Brrrrrrrrr….. But we had some giggles as I put some Ice down the back of my daughter and she mine lol.. EEEkkk….
We then topped up with drinking water as you need to drink plenty of water. We then went to the Herbal Hot room, where herbal aromas are infused with the heat… Ouch…. These Tiles were Hot on your back… The towels came in handy here..
After I had nearly melted in the heat, We headed next door to the Tropical Mist cubicle.. Where a very fine cool mist sprays you to cool you down..
Drank more water, then headed to the foot massage pool.. Where you sit and put your feet upon the jets of water… I could have stayed there All day… (Must get that Foot Spa back down from the loft.. Well Must tell Hubby to go On the Loft Hunt trail.. As everything is Up in the Loft..lol)
Then went to the HOT Sauna… Wow.. HOT or WHAT!!!!… I could only stand 5mins in here… And I came out limp and Drank a Gallon of water.. We then went through the Water Jets that powered life back into us, as they are positioned at different heights as you walk around the room.. Another ouch as they hit my tender muscles but I tell myself they are doing me good….
We then had another dip in the pool before changing into dry bathers and heading for the vanity room, full of mirrors, hairdyers, tissues and body lotions.. So we pampered to look decent for lunch..
Lunch was out of this world, A buffet fit for the queen, ( that you could keep returning to if you wished)..Plus and splendid choice of 4 different three courses on your set menu. After a superb lunch and compliments to the chief..(Jamie Oliver eat your heart out) Needless to say we then headed for the quiet room, where we took our books, but I never read a page, I curled up in a huge leather bean bag, covered myself in a fluffy blanket and drifted!!
I awoke to my daughter’s smiling face, who informed me I’d nodded.. ( Closing my mouth and checking I hadn’t dribbled) I smiled back…
We then headed for the Juice bar, and another smoothie. And then it was time for our treatments..
More relaxing and then we returned home… Bliss………….
And here’s me… I thought I would give you a close up this morning…What Do you think? … heehee..
