i knew we were going away for a few days for my birthday last week, but i didn't know where. the husband booked a styled-up shack amongst the bush & it was so good to get away. mirka loved it. she's her mummy's daughter, that one. she amused herself for at least an hour when we first arrived, checking out all the rooms, cupboards, furniture & taking in every little detail. the husband* also surprised me with a ridiculously indulgent few hours at a local day spa. massage, facial, pedicure & manicure. yes, all of those. and when i say massage, i mean a two person, hot stone massage. the combination of the oil & hot stones being massaged in to my sore muscles was amazing. normally, whenever i get my nails done, i just go for a soft, you-may-say-boring-but-i-like-it-so-shut-up, pink. this time around, i decided to get a bright, red-orange & i'm loving it. i think i'm addicted. orange seems to have been the colour of our mini holiday.. little pops of red & orange seemed to be everywhere. brights.
update: *husband organised my joint present from himself & the wonderful kingsley, vivi & pam. thank you ladies!
