Wonderful Weekend

Hello therreeee :) Can't believe its the end of the weekend already, but what a weekend its been!!!


It all started with a lovely evening out with the boy and some friends on Friday. This began at Nandos, which you will come to learn is my favourite eatery :) There are three Nandos in Nottingham and I try to alternate to hide how many times I actually go, but all of the staff recognise me... bad sign?  We then went on to see the film 'Paul' with which we made a serious mistake in regards to timing. Due to the film being out for a few weeks we thought it would be safe to go into the film a few minutes late, to allow for trailers, wrong move!! We were sat two rows from the front, so no surprise that we all left the cinema with bad necks and sore eyes...but good film :)


First thing Saturday we drove to the Nottingham Belfry hotel for a spa weekend (my belated birthday pressie from the boy :D ). We had our treatments as soon as we arrived, a facial and back/neck massage... A MMMAAAAAZZZZINGGG!!! The lady used so many different products on my face that left it feeling so soft and fresh that I enquired about prices, at £58+ an item I decided to have a think about it.

I could definitely get used to spa treatments, I didn't want it to end! We then had lunch at the hotel which was home-made mushroom soup and then chicken wraps...scrummy!! Was a litte shocked to see it was two courses (three if you paid a little extra) but I managed to fit it all in. It was then around 2 o'clock so we were allowed to check into our room, or shall I say suite. With our very own living room, four poster bed, TV in the bathroom and two sinks... I could of lived there!

Cracked open the wine and had a glass whilst watching a bit of TV and then it was off to the Spa. The spa had a gym, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and swimming pool. After spending a couple of hours in the spa it was back to the suite to get ready for our evening meal (also managed to fit in a glass of wine whilst watching American Idol :) ) Is it me or can everyone on that programme sing better than anyone we have had on XFactor?!?

Dinner was immense, it tasted so good and the presentation was perfect!! I again had home-made soup to start, this time of the tomato variety. For my main I had Cajun chicken with salsa, sour cream, rocket and new potatoes... served on a slate, but still tasted awesome. Desert was treacle tart with fresh fruit but check out Jody's desert.. 'Egg and soldiers' - Pana cotta and shortbread fingers. They even had lion stamps on the eggs to make them look realistic... very odd but very cool.

I soooo did not want to leave the hotel this morning :( But as of 11 it was indeed back to reality.

Got home, had my car washed and now its One Tree Hill, a few glasses of wine and Revels :)

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend
