Champneys Dahling

I don’t get out much these days, not without the kids anyway.

My partying days are well and truly over – or at least on the back burner for the time being! :)

But being as it’s been my big birthday this week (shh.. don’t tell anyone) I’m being treated to a weekend spa with the girls and to say I’m behaving like an excited child at the thought of it would be an understatement!


I so need the break. I devote my life and time to my children and as much as they deserve it, they’re amazing, I deserve this break.

So I’m off to the ultimate spa resort – CHAMPNEYS in Tring.

When we first decided to book a spa weekend I knew it had to be somewhere special. I wanted luxury for my birthday treat.

Champneys Tring is not too far from me and is renowned for being grand and luxurious. It is described as ‘This isn’t just a place, it’s a vision’.

Can’t wait to be chauffeured along this magnificant driveway…

I am leaving this afternoon with my two best friends who I can’t wait to share a relaxing but fun celebratory weekend with.

But what am I looking forward to the most?

Firstly, just leaving the family behind. Terrible as that sounds, I want that little bit of freedom that seems to elude me, even if it is for only 24 hours. I want to be able to forget the every day and be completely captivated by the beautiful surroundings and total relaxation that Champneys promises.

My Girl last night burst into tears because I’m going away overnight – just gives you an idea how often I leave her, which is NEVER!!!!!!! It did pull at the heartstrings but she’ll have a fun time with her siblings and Daddy, he’s sure to ply them with sweets and chocolate the whole weekend!

Once I get there I won’t be able to wait to don the swimming cozzie and obligatory bathrobe and head on down to this….

I shall be swimming then sitting in here letting the bubbles wash away all my stresses…..

I may go to the gym or join in with a class… maybe yoga, or something a bit different, I haven’t made up my mind yet! I have a couple of treatments booked… the massage will be heaven but my anti ageing facial is really what I’m looking forward to the most, I feel as though my skin is changing now that I’m getting old *coughs*, it seems dull and lifeless so it could do with a major pick me up.

Ooh yes please! Hope to look at least 10 year younger :)

I’m looking forward to quaffing champagne with my closest friends whilst getting dressed up for some fine dining in the resort restaurant.


And I anticipate settling into my bed in one of the beautiful rooms at Champneys and waking up at my own, leisurely pace, with another day of pampering to look forward to…. utter bliss.

Or maybe I’ll just stay in bed all morning, I can if I want to…

Did I mention how excited I am?!!

I better go now then and get ready. I’ll be back next week to tell you all about it.
