22nd June 2013
I must start by thanking you all for your tips on controlling acne. I plan on making another doctors appointment, this time with the skin specialist, and getting to the bottom of this. I swear the new cream I am using isn’t working.
I’ve just finished a 7 and a half hour shift. I’ll admit, it was a killer, especially considering I normally only work for three hours a day. My hours seem to get back in to a normal routine after this week and pretty soon it will be holidays time too. I have two days off before Ty and I fly out to Portugal so that will give me time to pack, get my self beach perfect and tidy the house (my parents are flying out to Portugal a week before so I shall have the house to myself).
Work has been boring and tedious recently but I did get 100% on my mystery shopper audit for which I was rewarded the equivalent to £5 to spend in store. Plus, I’m planning on move back to Liverpool in August. I want to be there for International Beatleweek.
Next Sunday I’m heading back up north to Liverpool, but just for the day. I’m going to see The Who in concert!!! I’m so excited it’s unbelievable. I never thought I would get the chance to see them live but a week tomorrow it’s really happening. The tickets are here and I’m ready to go!
On Monday it was my mum’s birthday. I wanted to get her something different for her birthday and I wanted to really treat her. A few years back she wanted to go to a spa for her birthday but I was too young at the time to have any of the treatments so we set the idea aside. Knowing that she wanted a spa day I discussed it with her but our work schedules seem to clash, so the only day we could go was last Sunday (ironically, it was also Father’s Day!). We found an offer on LastMinute.com for a local spa and booked it.
It was an amazing experience. We had full use of the facilities for the day, including the swimming pool, sauna, gym and steam room. The deal included a 30 minute treatment each. I had a back massage and my mum had a facial. I also had an extra treatment as they were half price on this specific day so I had my toe nails filed and polished. After our treatments, and also included in the spa deal, was afternoon tea. I got the chance to try some herbal tea but it’s really not for me. My mum and I spent the rest of the afternoon in the relaxation room. It was a dark room, lit only by candles, and it contained beds with cushions and duvets on. They were so comfortable that I fell asleep!
