It’s Mother’s Day this week and thanks to a ridiculous schedule, not feeling myself and a million other little things I am woefully unprepared. So I’ve put together a little gift guide of things that are thoughtful, useful and a little luxurious for all the Mum’s who are feeling overwhelmed just like me.Continue reading Mother’s Day 2020
I have got to be kinder to myself, I have got to be easier on myself, I have got to look after myself. So I have been careful recently to not put so much pressure on and to make sure I create downtime and I partake in a little of self care. It has started with actually using some of the wonderful things I got for Mother’s Day.Continue reading A Little Bit of Self Care

Like every parent we crave a bit of time off, so when Wynyard Hall asked if we would like to stay I grabbed the opportunity to get L off to his grandparents and booked some time in their Spa!!
Wynyard Hall is in County Durham, so a fair old journey for us, but we were yet to celebrate our wedding anniversary and love the area having recently been on holiday nearby so it was perfect for us. I am so glad we made the journey. It is seriously the most luxurious weekend I have ever had. EVER.
For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
This week has been fairly boring, thankfully! There have been some lovely moments, some toddler tantrum not so lovely moments and some fairly mundane moments. It’s actually been quite normal and peaceful which is always nice.
So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
A few weekends ago my sister and I went to Clarice House in Bury St Edmunds for a day of relaxation and pampering to celebrate her 30th birthday.
I booked our package through Spa Seekers, which was fine and I got an awesome deal, but what wasn’t mentioned, at any point, was that our package didn’t include robe and towel hire, so whilst I would recommend both Spa Seekers for the deals and Clarice House for the loveliness I will say now you need to make sure that your package includes everything you assume it would.
Our package included an hour long massage, 30 minute facial, 30 minute manicure and 30 minute pedicure, as well as lunch and use fo the facilities. Pure bliss.
