Way back in December Lucy turned 21. One of her presents was tickets for both of us to go to a Maroon 5 concert at the O2 arena in London. It was supposed to be last weekend, but Maroon 5 have postponed until next January! So we looked around for something else to do, and came across a ‘pamper day’ at a local hotel on Groupon. I am not usually all that keen on beauty treatments, but Lucy really wanted to go so we packed our swimming costumes and off we drove! We had 2 ‘mini’ treatments each, a pedicure and a facial. Look at my toes!
We had a really lovely lunch, all healthy stuff, sitting in the bar area. The waitress asked me if I was Merlin’s owner! I didn’t recognise her at first, so asked her what her dog’s name was. It turned out that we used to walk our dogs together about 8 years ago! Sadly she had lost her dog earlier this year too.
Our day was made when we ventured outside to the pool (the water, a balmy 30 degrees) and then the sun came out! So we sat in the sun for the afternoon, perfect!
Remember my craft challenge? June was supposed to be make a bag, which I am pleased to report I have done. It’s a doggie bag! I made it from a pattern in Lynette Anderson’s book It’s Quilting Cats and Dogs.
