Rocking my world this week...

This week my world was TOTALLY ROCKED!!! by my hubby and boyz, who (with the help of my friends) secretly arranged a 2 night stay at the GLORIOUS Ardencote Manor Country Club and Spa :D (smiley face doesn't do justice to how stunned I was.....I cried!).
And yes I am blatantly plugging this place!! The Hotel and Spa staff were so wonderfully friendly(and didn't laugh at me for bursting in to tears at the check in/when having a pedicure/checking out)

Our room was the dorma window in roof, overlooking the lake and grounds, and I know I'm being really gushy, but in the 29 years we have been an item, me and hubby have NEVER had any time away by ourselves(we are soooooo going to do it again!!!)

A country drive took us to Warwick Castle...Always wanted to go there and I was definitely NOT disappointed :D (took 200 photo's haha!)
Then on tuesday afternoon, we found this amazing treasure of a house, Packwood House . It is a National trust property, and has to be seen to be beautiful inside and out(this is the back door!!)
On the way home on Wednesday, hubby even let me drag him round the Bosworth Battlefield centre, which has a new archeological display(and they now believe they have discovered the actual field where the battle took place!!)
Add to this; 1 manicure, 1 pedicure and an eyelash tint..... and you get one TOTALLY ROCKED, HAPPY, SMILEY Gina :D XXX

(Not a very good photo, but hubby kept messing about :D XXX)

  4. Ohhhh Gina its soooooo good to see you back and I am almost in tears for joy for you ... what a wonderful wonderful break you have had. it sounds amazing and looks it too.
    Thanks also for your lovely comment at Dezina. I hate just taking photo's off peoples blogs even though you gave me permission but i wondered if you might send any you have (just whenever you come across them ) that you think i might be able to use in my sheets i sell ? If so, I would be delighted as i often just change them lots and then use them as backgrounds or as collage pieces. Thanks so much for the offer my friend, You are a gem.... and yep ... we did miss you
    hugs June x
