Is it really only Monday!?!

Is it really only Monday?? My weekend just flew by as we were so busy and I feel as though I didn’t even really have time to relax at all. This weekend will be different!

No, it really will! No decorating, no unpacking boxes, no cleaning. Just pure relaxation! It’s a friend’s birthday and we’ve started a bit of a tradition (OK, so it’s only the second year we’ve done it, but we plan on it becoming tradition!) that we go away for a weekend for his birthday. There the 6 of us – three couples, and it’s great. Last year we went to Nottingham, and this year it is Cambridge. I.Can.Not.Wait!

We tend to book rooms with Q Hotel, as they have spas as well, and usually do a good deal. I think we’ve got 2 nights, with 1x 3 course meal, 2x breakfast, and unlimited use of the spa facilities (treatments cost) for £160 odd per room. I could quite happily just spend the whole weekend in the spa. I might have to try and persuade Chris that I need a massage….if that doesn’t work I guess I do still have some birthday money left over I could use.

Chris and I have been to Cambridge before for a long weekend a few years ago, as Chris’ mum was at university there, so we stayed in her house while she was away. It was lovely, and fairly quiet as it was the start of September so term hadn’t started yet. I think it will be even more fun this time as we’re going with friends. I think we’ll have to hire a boat and punt down the River Cam…. possibly even hire two boats between us and have punting races!

I’m just hoping the weather will be as nice as it was this weekend, but the outlook doesn’t look as good. I think it’s still meant to be fairly warm, but not sunny, just cloudy *sad face* Either way, I think it’s going to be a fab weekend, and I’m really looking forward to it! I really must make a conscious effort to take lots of pictures, as I’m usually useless at that!

Does anyone else have anything planned for the weekend? Am I the only one on count down already!?

    Our weekend is going to be hard work but exciting. James is driving down Friday eve and then we are loading the car and heading up to Brum on Saturday! He’s booked Monday off so we will have two days to build & arrange some furniture and things 🙂
