Last Sunday it was our wedding anniversary and Andy had planned a lovely surprise for us, a trip to Bath. We went there the day after we got married and had a little ‘mini moon’, because we weren’t going on our honeymoon until Boxing Day.
Earlier in the year Andy had won an incentive at work and the prize was two tickets to any premiership football match. Now Andy loves football and this was perfect for him. But instead he managed to exchange the prize for a room at the MacDonald Bath Spa Hotel, where we stayed six years ago. When I say room, it was actually a suite and we had our own lounge. It was amazing! He did good…
He had also booked for us to have a couple of hours at the Thermae Bath Spa in the town centre, I’ve always wanted to go. Andy has never been to a spa before, its not normally his kind of thing. But we had a lovely time, they have a swimming pool on the roof, that is like a bath. It had beautiful views across Bath. Sadly they don’t let you take any photos anywhere in the spa.
Afterwards we had a walk around the shops and through one of the many park areas they have in the centre. I really do love it there.
We then headed to our hotel to relax and get ready for dinner. I had a bath without any little people trying to get in with me. Then we walked back into town and passed a little area called ‘Laura Place’, it’s like I belong there!
It was a lovely meal and we had a couple of cocktails. As much as I love my girls and I was missing them like crazy, it was lovely not having to share my dinner or take Alice to the toilet a hundred times.
The next day as we were leaving the hotel, we went for a walk in the grounds. I had my camera with me and managed to find places to put the camera to take some pictures of us together. We have similar photos from six years ago and I wanted to capture this moment too.
It was a lovely couple of days and next time we go back I would love to take the girls.
