Just a wee travel trip report as the lovely fiancé surprised me, by whisking me away for a surprise 24 hour break.
He let me know on Friday that we were going away but not where, just that it was within a 60 mile radius. This was to be Zedward's first ever night alone in the house. He is 16 but still........ So bribes were arranged and list of friends allowed round issued.
Much mystery ensued at various junctions on the motorway - are we going east or west? North or south. So I shut my eyes and had a nap instead so the surprise could be prolonged until we finally passed Cheltenham Ladies College as we were about to park.
Wheeeeeee! I love, love, love HdV. Big beds;
And huge baths;
Not to mention nice toiletries from Arran Aromatics etc;
And they have a cool Cigar shack outside so you can nip out for a crafty smoke, complete with fire and candles;
Cheltenham would have been ok, if it wasn't for the unending Bank Holiday rain :( and the fact that all the shops in the nice Montpelier area were closed for BH.
Dinner was delicious at Blanc Brasserie though (even if they didn't have Creme Brulee).
And then next day it was all over and we had to go home again - shame, at least house was relatively tidy and un-partied in. I felt my wrinkles de-creasing whilst we were there so this is sort of beauty related ;)
