Sunday Spotlight - 31st August 2014

In my life this week…

Center Parcs

This Monday I headed off to Suffolk with my family. We had booked to go for a little holiday to Elveden Center Parcs. We actually went to the same place last year, and loved it so much we decided to go back. It was so lovely to get away for a few days and spend time with my extended family (various partners also came along). Life hasn’t been particularly easy recently, and this was a chance to have a change of scene and get away from reality a bit. We consumed numerous cocktails, went bowling, played Crazy Golf and chilled out in the hot tub. The holiday went way too quickly (isn’t it always the way?!) and we were heading back home before we knew it. We’re already thinking of booking to go to a different Center Parcs next summer!


While we were away at Center Parcs, a few of us booked to go to the Aqua Sana Spa for various treatments. My brothers and their girlfriends had couples treatments, while I chose an Elemis Detox Massage, which is said to help boost circulation, lymphatic drainage and digestion. At home I have a traditional Swedish massage every six weeks, so I wanted to try something a little different, which this definitely was! I wouldn’t say it was your typical relaxing massage, as it’s not really designed to relax you. But I certainly felt invigorated after, and the facial made my skin feel so soft and zingy!

As lovely as it was to get away for a few days, I felt myself feeling ready to get back to my own bed and routine. I’m definitely one for feeling comfortable in my routine, and I sometimes struggle when things change, so I found myself feeling a bit anxious on holiday. I also really missed our dogs and cats, so it was lovely to get back to see them. Jaffa and Alfie had struggled to settle without us, whereas Xena and Freddie had been lapping up the extra attention! I can’t believe we’re already at the end of the summer holidays and I’m meant to be starting college on Tuesday. Seriously, where has the time gone?!

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!
