Luxury Spa Hotel – Spray Tan Disaster

April 2, 2011 by  
Filed under About Bikini

An advice for partners and husbands of mothers with children under 3: do not surprise your sweet heart with a spa day. Don’t misunderstand me, the plan in principle sounds wonderful. A dream, an amazing treat you think men are not capable of thinking about… well mine did. But he got it so wrong! So the day began with me being told to get myself dressed quickly as I was being taken out for a surprise. Now usually this consisted of me being driven to the supermarket instead of walking down with a buggy and a wayward three year old. Naturally I simply scraped my hair back, put on some comfy, well yes maybe slouchy trousers, and grabbed a jacket – stain down front, courtesy of three year old. Half an hour later, we drove into the most beautiful setting, where it dawned on me what my well-thinking but non-practical partner had done – paid for a total day of pampering. He swiftly dropped me off saying, “Back at five, enjoy!” with a look of smugness, thinking he was the most thoughtful man in the universe.

I desperately wanted to wipe it off his face. The reason being I had my oldest but most comfortable greying and slightly holey un-matching bra and knickers on, unwashed hair scraped into a traveller-worthy bun, three-week long hairs on legs/bikini area, and a swimsuit thoughtfully packed by my partner that consisted of a bikini set not worn since birth of two children… kept only as a reminder of a never-again obtainable figure I could only dream of having again! The drive out of the ‘Health Farm’ itself was a mile-long, so my only option was to enter. Feeling really out of place and very much like a tramp I walked in and produced my torn-in-half-but-stuck-back-together-again voucher (thanks again to three-year-old).

The look I received was very professional yet it was obvious I was not the customer they wanted standing in the reception so I was swiftly whisked into a side-room and given the options of what I could use my coupon for.As opposed to the fantastically enjoyable full-body massage and entrancing Indian head massage I would have wanted, I felt obligated instead to pick the full leg, underarm and bikini wax (with complementary eyebrow threading), and the powerful hair-treatment therapy (that includes wash and blow-dry), so instead of a day of extreme delight, I experienced probably the most discomfort and pain ever since the 2 births of the children I was having a break from.As you can imagine my partner didn’t ‘get lucky’ that evening as he expected, neither did he get the Sunday offered to him to go and play golf during the day. Alternatively, he minded the kids whilst I had a long hot bath, read an entire book and indulged in certain glasses of wine… an extremely well deserved treat!
