For my 40th birthday my soul sister booked us both into a fabulous spa for the day, I traveled down to stay with her for the weekend and did not know a thing about it until I got there and she totally surprised me with it all. We even got to spend the day as tourists in London which coincided with the poppies at the tower – perfection. It was definitely one birthday I will never forget, nor the kindness shown by her too.
We keep in contact all of the time and we are typical girls and moms who have so much going on that life can pass us by and before we know it its weeks or even months before we speak again…time seems to stand still though and we pick up where we left off as if standing over the garden fence as next door neighbours.
Having both been through the mill these past couple of months I can see us needing a girly weekend catch up, something to help both of us relax and forget about all the stresses and worries of home life. Sometimes things just need to be reset, our bodies need an overhaul and we need to take some time to be ourselves again – some soul finding time!
I have been looking at Great Little Breaks and have found a few things that would satisfy the foodies in us, the pampering that needs to take place and of course the total seclusion of a beach front cottage that will certainly put everything into perspective and reset our minds and bodies! My top 3 getting away from it all venues would be:
I can totally see us sitting in the countryside tasting gourmet food or cruising around the Jurassic coast, not a care in the world, well at least for a weekend anyway.
Sometimes we all need a little getaway, what do you do when you need to escape for some you time? As mums we tend to feel guilty when we treat ourselves but i really do think we need to be on our best form before we can take care of anyone else – what about you?
