Happy Saturday everyone, I hope you all have a lovely weekend ahead of you. Last weekend you may remember me talking about me going on a trip to The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin and I’m very excited to say the day has finally arrived.
Mum and I decided to treat ourselves to a girly spa day today, my Dad and Dave are both away for the weekend so what better excuse to treat ourselves to something nice.
As much as I love The Shelbourne, I’ve never been to the spa there so we’re both really excited to try it out and have some good old fashioned rest and relaxation. We’re starting the day off with brunch in town, and ending it with dinner in one of our favourite places to eat near home so it’s pretty much the perfect staycation.
Not only that but it’s so nice to have some Mum – Daughter quality time, catch up on all the family news and no doubt get lost in conversation over who knows what. Although I’m lucky enough to still live close to my parents, it’s rare that you get these kind of days to properly have some quality time and I for one can’t wait.
It’s been a strange week this week. On Thursday it was the birthday of a very old friend of mine who sadly passed away before Christmas. We all got together with his family on Thursday evening to toast him, and it really made me realise how short life can be and how precious our time with the people we love is.
I’ll be back with a full report on the spa and all our treatments in the coming days so if you want to know how we get on then watch this space.
For now, I hope you all have a lovely Saturday wherever you are today too.
