Well I’ve only gone and done it – I’ve turned 50! And, if I say so myself, I did it with style. And fizz, lots and lots of fizz, oh and the odd cake. I had no idea where I would be celebrating until the day before departure when Andrew announced that he had secretly booked five nights in a spa hotel in Chester called The Grosvenor, Pulford. Perfect for my 50th birthday weekend! This news was greeted with squeals of delight followed by a flurry of activity – thank goodness I travel a lot on business, am a packing Goddess and keep most of my essentials on standby.
I decided to make a statement with my orange overnight bag, orange jacket and a pair of my favourite shoes.
We thought we’d grab a few pics of me arriving at the hotel. However, the wind had other ideas – now that’s how you make an entrance.
We did manage to get some shots of the tranquil spa gardens. By this time ‘windswept and interesting’ could have been my middle names so I ducked out of the pics.
When we got inside Andrew wandered to the bar to get us a tipple and this is what he found when he got back:
What can I say, it was a long day. Jacket – Charlotte Halton / Bag – Luca Bocelli / Shoes – Ruby Shooo / Trousers & New Look / New hairstyle c/o howling winds.
I’ll be posting more about my adventures in Chester soon. But for now, a big thank you to Andrew for spoiling me rotten!
