Lunch and Spa

Hello everybody just a quick post and a few photo's. We had a great lunch on Saturday with Kate's Grandma, Aunties and friends a lovely time was had by all. Then on Sunday Kate and I and Katie a friend of Kate's went to a spa for a relaxing day. I had never been to a spa before so this was a bit of an adventure for me. The house where we went was called Stapleford Hall in Melton Mobray Leics. it was a beautiful place. In the morning we had the pool to ourselves and relaxed in the jaccuzi, then we had lunch which was great and at 2.00pm we all started our treatments, I had a full body massage and a facial it was wonderful, the building where the treatments were done you can see on the photo believe it or not these are the old stables. We had our lunch at the main house and this was special, there were photo's all around of famous people who have stayed there Michael Jackson was one he was hugging some of the waitresses. The wedding is getting very close now and the butterflies in my tummy are getting bigger but I am really looking forward to seeing my baby get married. Do you like the wallpaper with the birds on ? it was glorious.

Many moons ago when Bob Payton owned Stapleford, I was his housekeeper, looking after his house which was converted from the old gift shop when Stapleford belonged to the Gretton Family. The house had to be sold when the old Lord Gretton and his son died within a few years of each other, attracting a huge amount of death duties.

Bob did a fantastic job of converting the house, but it did not bring him happiness, his marriage failed and Bob himself was killed when his Range Rover hit a tree.

Looking forward to the wedding piccy's, I am sure you are going to have a fabulous day.

I'm glad you had such a good day. My daughter and I have often thought of having a spa day but have not got around to it yet.
The wallpaper is fabulous, I LOVE it! If only we could get such beautiful papers nowadays.
