– 2018/104 – birthday weekend, part 1

I had a fabulous birthday.  Fabulous, daaaahling!

After sending the boys to school we leisurely drove to Babington House where we had a most delicious lunch with friends and then chilled out in the spa.  You know when you’re so relaxed that you lose the sense of time? That.

Can you believe it was once someone’s home? If you fancy a read the history of the place it is here.

love the flower display in the lobby.. .in fact the whole place was full of lovely touches…

Our room was in the main building – and was gorgeous; home made cupcakes welcomed us… of course Mr M couldn’t wait till I took a photo… ahem..

I want a teal sofa.  Want.

The Spa is in a separate building a few minutes walk away

Let me tell you, drinking fresh mint tea watching the beautiful garden was just what the doctor ordered…

… as was the leisurely stroll back to our room through the perfectly manicured grounds…

Isn’t it the cutest church?  They have weddings every Thursday; must be dreamy.

Of course a pre dinner cocktail in the cool bar had to be done, right?  Negroni for me, something colourful for Mr M…IMG_4060IMG_4061

I didn’t take any pictures of our meal… I wanted to because everything looked really pretty but we chatted instead… and made up lives for the other guests, which is totally our favourite activity.  The guy behind me sounded like Schwarzenegger (he wasn’t of course) but Mr M said footballer in the 80s.  Who knows.

I broke a glass.  Which is totally not me… but I was being a little unnecessarily bitchy so it was totally karma and served me right.

Sigh.

Lovely night at the end of a lovely day.
