Anyway, despite the fact it's all I can think about, enough about the car and let me share with you a few photos of our trip to Ragdale, http://www.ragdalehall.co.uk/, which is located just outside of Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. It's in beautiful grounds, the rooms are beautifully decorated and comfy and the facilities are just amazing! There's lots to do there but all very relaxing and the food is lovely, which included a three course dinner on our first evening there, breakfast in bed (you pick what you'd like the day before) and then a hot and cold buffet lunch. Our package included a facial and back massage treatment which I really enjoyed using Clarins products which are my favourite anyway (I blame my Mum for introducing me to expensive beauty products, but considering mascara is about the only thing I wear make-up wise I think I can afford to spend a little more on a nice face cream!). I won't go on and on about our spa experience, but here's a few photos of our time there.
A little surprise for Jess on our arrival
Love it just because it's different!
This room is called "The Retreat" and it's a no talking room filled with sofas, bean bags and duvets to either chill out and read a book or just to snooze
My breakfast in bed!
The pool area
This is the outside area of the thermal pool - I've been here before when it was snowing and being outside was amazing. This is located in their thermal spa area which has multiple different rooms including a thunderstorm shower, volcanic rock steam room and a rose sauna
The Pavilion - Just another lovely sitting area
... and lovely desserts!
Just a quick note to say thank you for the congratulations on the job front, very much looking forward to starting a new adventure there late next month!
