It can suck having a birthday two days before Christmas. In years gone by I have had to do the Christmas food shopping on my birthday, celebrate by eating a Christmas dinner, and more. I refuse to pull a cracker on my birthday as I want my birthday to be about birthdays not Christmas.
This year I knew I was being taken away for a night which was a lovely surprise. I didn’t know where I was going however, so I was thoroughly spoiled by my husband yesterday when we arrived at a hotel next to the river where five minutes after checking in I was whisked into the spa for a massage followed by a relaxing hour in the jacuzzi and pool.
A nice evening meal out followed by a cocktail in the hotel bar, and I woke up to the above scene this morning!
