Mummy Time || Mini Spa Break

My friend Jenny and I decided that for our 30ths we'd go away on a mini spa break.

Searching the Internet we found a great deal for a Spa break at the Ashford International!

£109 for one 50 minute treatment in the Spa. 
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
Over night stay and full use of the leisure facilities.   

This would be the first time I've been away from the boys other than hospital stays!

From the moment we stepped inside the hotel we were impressed.
The decor was lovely and the staff were very friendly! 

We booked in early and headed to our room to unpack!

The Room::

I had a detox package - as part of that I got a detox smoothie. 

So Once we'd unpacked we headed off to the Quench Bar to collect my smoothie.

It had green tea, honey, lemon and cucumber. It was ok but I didn't manage to drink all of it.

Our Spa treatments were at 3 o'clock, so after chilling in our room for half an hour we donned our gowns and headed off to the relaxation room 

The Relaxation Room:: 

It was lovely and warm and very chilled.
The music and smells were enough to send you off to sleep.

My treatment consisted of an AMAZING back massage, a body mud pack and being wrapped up in a plastic sheet whilst I had my first ever head massage..... Pure Heaven!!!

Jenny and I both met outside the relaxation room and headed off to the pool area.

We used the steam room then had a nice swim in the lovely pool. 

I haven't been swimming properly for years. It really brought back my love for it and it's something I'm definitely going to start doing once a week.
After a good few laps we jumped into the jacuzzi before heading back to the room to get ready for dinner. 

We decided to have some pre dinner drinks, safe to say we entered the restaurant giggling with a rosey glow! 

For dinner I had a chicken dish followed by a white chocolate pudding!

It was very yummy and again the staff were great.

We were pretty tired so went to bed early. 
I woke the next day feeling refreshed and relaxed.

After breakfast we headed off to the steam room.
Before the clock hands had struck 10am we had been in the steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and done a good few lengths of the pool!

We had to check our of our room at 11am and had a pedicure booked for 12.
We had a coffee in the quench bar whilst we waited.

After we'd had our lovely pedicure & foot massage we went off to lunch which was a buffet.

We made full use of the hotel and enjoyed every moment of it!!!

We shall definitely be visiting again!! 

The boys had fun with Jon and I actually didn't miss them as much as I thought I would!
Getting away for a night is great for distressing and refreshing!
I came back home ready to parent on a whole new level!

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
