Solar Springs

I am off this morning for my 3 days stay at the wonderful Solar Springs retreat at Bundanoon. I love this place. I can rest, relax, be pampered and do just what I want. I have booked in for 5 treatments - a Massage, facial, body scrub, Manicure & pedicure. I am also hoping that I can kick start my fitness regime whilst here. Starting with a boxfit class this afternoon. each morning I will start the day with a stretch class before breakfast. Then I will possibly go on the walk for the day and in the afternoon will do the scheduled fitness class. I have prepared Val Lairds Consider the Lilies BOM to take with me to stitch if I want, I thought about making up little baggies of cards to make but decided I would need to take too much stuff to complete them, so its just the stitchery & applique blocks going. And the food is quite amazing.

I normally go on my own as i have no problem in meeting new people but also I like to be able to do my own things not to have to work in with another's idea for the day. This time however I am meeting up with Gertie, my boss' partner. They gave us a Wellness day voucher as our Christmas pressie so I am using that for some of my treatments. Gertie has been there since Sunday and will be going home tomorrow, so we will maybe do a few activities together as well as sharing a table at meals. until she leaves, then I am totally free to do my own thang.

I'll be back Friday evening so look out for my post pampering post.
