Time to Relax

It will soon be my birthday. Last year one of my presents was a voucher for a facial, to be used before the end of April this year. I hadn't forgotten it I just didn't seem to have the time (or much inclination) to make use of it, although it probably would have done me good to have done so!

However, a few days ago I made the appropriate appointment and yesterday afternoon I actually went to the salon and gave myself up to having a relaxing and pampering facial. My skin felt wonderful afterwards (and looked pretty good too, if I do say so).

I walked back home in warm spring sunshine, made myself a cup of coffee, sat on the sofa, put my feet up and fell asleep for an hour. Marvellous.

Tomorrow I am going to stay with my daughter who lives in Stratford on Avon, for about a week.

I will be in touch.

I've never had a facial but I imagine it's very relaxing. I had an afternoon nap myself. I set the alarm for an hour but ended up sleeping for three and a half! It made up for too many late nights and the clocks springing forward tomorrow.

It does you good to be pampered sometimes, although I never seem to find the time either!

Happy Birthday, Anne! I hope you enjoy your trip to your daughters...what a lovely place to spend a I'm longing for a facial!

I have often wondered what it is like to have a facial as I have never had one, partly because I do not like people fiddling with me.

Enjoy your time at your daughters.

I quite like having facials, though my skin will never look good exactly, not in a million years! So glad you found time to cash in your voucher!

And happy birthday for this time around!
