And relax...

I hope your weekend is going well so far. I have had an amazingly relaxing day with my lil sis at the Lido in Clifton. After spending a ridiculous 15 minutes between us trying to park my sister's car in the overcrowded streets of Clifton, we eventually made our way to the spa.

We were so lucky the weather, as we had blue skies pretty much the whole time (although not quite as blue as the photo above... it is still just March afterall!). The pool being slightly on the chilly side at 23.6 degrees, we swam a little but mostly spent our time in the sauna, steam room and hot tub, with a few showers and cold buckets in between.

At three o'clock we left the pool for our afternoon tea, which was good as we could smell the restaurant food from the pool and it smelt amazing, so we had definitely built up an appetite! We got changed and made full use of the dressing tables with hairdryers and GHDs. We then made our way over to the restaurant and were seated in the terrace area by the window, enjoying the rest of the sunshine.

The food was delicious. The package included smoked salmon on toast with a glass of prosecco & a pot of tea with a scone, clotted cream and jam. Delicious!
 
Overall, we spent an amazing afternoon, relaxing and talking about everything. It was great to spend some time with my beautiful lil sis before she flies off to Australia next month, and I now feel the most relaxed I've felt in a long (!) time... Definitely what the doctor ordered!
