Happy and Excited
Yesterday my best friend Donna and I went to the Carrick Spa at Cameron House Hotel in Loch Lomond, this was a 40th birthday gift given to me by my great friends Gina and John. We had one of the BEST days ever and even though it didn’t all go plain sailing, we were so happy and excited about going, nothing was going to dampen our spirits. Here is a little taster of our journey from yesterday.
We both decided that we would get the train in so we could have a few celebratory glasses of bubbly as part of our day. Unfortunately we missed our train by 59 seconds (to be precise) which was going to leave us 30 minutes late for our spa treatment, a rasul mud massage. I telephoned the Spa to let them know we were going to be late and was very nicely advised that because they were fully booked that day, we would probably not get our treatment but we could still spend the rest of the time using all the other spa facilities. Instead of us being angry, annoyed or disappointed, we just laughed off the situation because we were still very grateful for this day.
What a Real Gentleman
Thank you to the gentleman working at Queen Street Station in Glasgow City Centre, who came over to us to offer his help and he spent at least 20 minutes trying to help us look at alternative trains so we could get there on time. What a real gentleman he was and we had such a laugh talking to him and telling him about our wonderful day ahead at the Spa. After looking at the other options, we accepted the fact that we were going to have to be 30 minutes late and therefore miss our rasul massage treatment but hey, we were still really looking forward to using all the facilities at the 5 Star Spa. I said earlier, we were in such a good mood, nothing was going to spoil our excitement. 🙂
We arrived at the very stunning Carrick Spa in Loch Lomond and sincerely apologised for our lateness. To our wonderful surprise, someone had just phoned and cancelled their 1pm appointment for that day for the rasul massage treatment and yippee we were given that appointment, woo hoo, we were elated to say the least. 🙂
We spent almost 5 hours in the Spa that day including receiving our rasul mud therapy treatment, it was truly wonderful and below are some of the photographs (some funny mud ones too) from our day:
We had such a great day and it was so good for Donna and I to have special quality “me time” together. We had a brilliant experience at the Carrick Spa, it is such a stunning place, hidden amongst the beauty of natural surroundings.
YOU Deserve It!!
A little bit of “Me Time” really does you the world of good, go on, treat yourself today to some special “Me Time”, it doesn’t need to be a day out at the Spa (although I would fully recommend it), it could just be taking 30 minutes of alone time to read a book, go for a walk, play your favorite music, whatever it is, enjoy it to the fullest because YOU really to deserve it and it will make you feel so good.
Thank you again to my great friends John and Gina for this special 40th birthday gift, it is an experience we will never forget, thank you.
Thank you Donna for the most amazing company yesterday, it was such a fabulous day.
Thanks also to YOU for reading this blog post, I am so glad to have you here, I like sharing the stories of my life with you and I do hope you have some special “Me Time” today.
Much love to you as always, Clarabelle.
