The Grove

While the boys were in Scotland for the weekend cheering for England in a Rugby Championship, we decided to take a girl's trip to The Grove....just a short tube ride northwest of London. Their "Escape the January Blues" package was just what we needed... it included overnight accommodations, a massage and use of the amazing Sequoia Spa facilities, dinner in the Glasshouse and a breakfast feast! Did I mention dessert?
To our surprise, after dinner we were able to curl up in front of an open fire, listen to a guest play the piano, enjoy a pot of tea and "girl talk" while we watched the snow swirl outside the windows and blanket the grounds of the resort with several inches of pure white. It was just dreamy!
Here are a few pictures taken the next morning.....
You know what they say, "When Mama's happy, everyone is happy!"

Love this!
That was the perfect get-away.The whirling snow was just the right touch.
Much better than freezing your arse off at a soccer match!
