If you have no time, then don't read as this post is very pic heavy! haha!!
Paul whisked me away at the weekend to the Aphrodite Lodge, which is a little boutique (read that as posh!!) hotel in Bowness in the Lake district. I originally saw some of these rooms last year on a friends blog and I fell in love with them!! Well they certainly didn't dissapoint!
Paul booked us into the Swiss Alps room, (better pics on their site) which was absolutely stunning, I walked into rose petals in a heart shape on the bed, and a single red rose, Paul had arranged this without me knowing!! what a lovely suprise!
Lounge/ Bar area
Saturday we took a trip to keswick, and wanted to see the cars and stars museum...
Which has all of these cars ...
Or so we thought, turns out that the cars have been relocated to Florida and the museum is now closed!! But not to worry there were plenty of other little shops mainly selling handcrafted items, so many beautiful things! We also found a Pencil factory ... but I Drew the line at going in there (see what I did there?)
Some pics of windermere.
On the friday night, we spotted a little shop which was one of those fish foot spa thingys, now anyone who knows me will know I would literally kill you if you touched my feet, they are so ticklish, so I jokingly said to Paul we should go there tomorrow (sat) he agreed and I thought he would forget ... no such luck! so after much walking about keswick and catching a ferry across the lake just for the experience we ended up here
Ok so £10 for 15 mins, took me 10 mins to get mine in there though, but I did it!!! .... and it might just have been alright and not too traumatic, infact the effects are amazing, Pauls feet were so horrible and hard and cracked, and they are so soft now, we will be doing this again very soon locally!!
Then we headed back to the hotel, got changed and went out for food in the evening ... I had packed my midlife crisis dress (those who don't know, I am so not girly and I definately dont *do* dresses, but bought this just before my birthday cause I liked it .... photographic evidence says I even wore it!! haha! I even have make up on!! and a new hair do .... 7 inches shorter than before! not a flattering picture at all but hey who cares, I am having a midlife crisis after all!!
So thats that... we travelled home on sunday, stopping for lunch just the 2 of us, and said we hoped Nana and Granda had enjoyed having the kids and that maybe it would be the start of more sleepovers!! .... when we picked up the children they were hyper and poor nana and Granda looked absolutely shattered! hahahaha!
