If anyone were to ask me what I miss most since becoming a parent, I’d be able to answer that question without a second’s hesitation. Quite simply it would be relaxing with a good book, ideally in the sun on the beach or by a pool. I still read of course, but not nearly as much as I used to.

So over the past year, I have discovered a wonderful thing called ‘spa days’! While the treatments are lovely, for me the piece de resistance is being able to read, undisturbed, and enjoy some girly chatter without interruptions from small people. I’m someone who always used to cherish my private ‘me’ time, and sometimes I reach the point where I really need a taste of that again.

The Experience Days website is like a catalogue full of treats and experiences for Mums and Dads who need and deserve a break from the norm. Whether it is fast cars, heady heights, water sports or a day of  pampering that tickles your fancy, there is something there for everyone.

    I owe my daughter a spa day because I promised one for her birthday and then had a massive bill land on me that was unexpected so I had to postpone it and I have felt so guilty ever since because she took it so well depsite being a moddy 15 year old. She was really understanding so this prize would save my bacon and treat my daughter for a belated birthday pressie.
