Mummy Time // Mulberry Retreat Heacham

Back before February half term my mum was coming up to spend some time with us and she decided to book us two into the local spa.
unfortunately due to Oscar being admitted to hospital we were unable to attend.

So my mother being the lovely lady that she is, left a nice deposit behind the desk and told me to book in when everything had calmed down and I had a spare day to go and be pampered.

Wednesday was that day.
A few weeks of terrible meltdowns and next to no sleep, I think I was over due being pampered.


I booked myself in for an Aroma Blend, Refine & Firm Massage.

A completely new approach to massage and body sculpting. This highly effective body shaping ritual is completely bespoke to you and your needs. Your body will feel recharged and your emotions balanced.

I also booked to have my eyebrows shaped and tidied.

But before I had any treatments I took full advantage of my child free day and spent an hour in their thermal spa.
Where I enjoyed the hot tub, sauna and steam room!



The thermal spa was lovely, I was the only one in there so I could fully relax and enjoy the silence!
I did take my book with me, but I actually preferred just sitting with my eye closed and having my mind completely blank.

It was pure bliss!
I was worried I was going to feel a bit like billy no mates, but I can see myself going along again.


My massage was something else, it was relaxing yet vigorous.
I dont think I've been pulled and push like that ever before during a massage, but I felt 10,000 x better afterwards that I did before.


I finished my trip with an eyebrow tidy, which was very much needed.
They were starting to resemble a very hairy caterpillar.


I'm starting to thinking that a mini spa days are going to be essential!
Because after all looking after 4 very wild and crazy boys certainly does wear you out.

How do you treat yourself?

Canterbury Cathedral

Tuesday's are our child free days and we like to make the most of them.

Today we needed to pop into Canterbury and to make it worth while we decided we would have a wander around the Cathedral.
Neither of us have been there before and both of us were blown away with how beautiful it was.

Of course you know a cathedral is going to be stunning but it just left us speechless at how amazing it was.

We learnt a lot thanks to the helpful staff and I took some lovely snaps.
All were taken on my iPhone, so they could have been much better if I had bothered to take my camera!

I'm not going to say too much in this post, I'll just let the pictures do the talking!

A brief history
In AD 597 missionaries from Rome converted the King of Kent to Christianity.
Augustine, leader of the mission was consecrated as Archbishop and his cathedra (official seat)
was established at Canterbury.
The Cathedral has been the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury ever since.

Tomb of King Henry IV and Queen Joan of Navarre










I highly recommend taking a visit to Canterbury and having a walk round the Cathedral.
It really is worth the money!
