OLD BIRD WITH ALL THE TRIMMINGS.

OR TAKE A DAY OF PAMPERING WITH A HOME SPA. (WITH BITS YOU HAVE AT HAND)

It’s easy to do and with make life much better over the next few days. It is vital to take the stress away or you’ll have a horrid crusty and cranky old bird.

FIRST OF ALL

Run a hot bath chuck in rock salt and baby oil, or aromatherapy oils of your choice, if you have mint that’s great to go under the hot faucet. Let the bathroom steam up and put on some soothing music (not loud Xmas stuff you’re trying to chill man!!) You can light candles if you have any. I have a humidifier in the from room so I put Autumn Spices in that. If you want a spicy smell chuck in a cinnamon stick a couple of cloves and a satsuma you mad devil.

FRUIT FROM THE FRIDGE.

Grab any fruit you have to hand (strawberries, avocado,banana, blueberries etc) and make a small smoothie adding a little natural yoghourt and a drizzle of honey if you have any. Use this mixture to smoosh on your face and neck. Eat any remaining.

This one is mud but you get the idea. Dalyans thermal mud bath Turkey.

Half a lemon for your elbows with a sprinkle of rock salt in as a rough whitening scrub.

INTO YOUR SALTY BATH

The salt in your bath should be used to exfoliate the rest of your body before it melts. This is an excellent skin treatment but if you want to just put in smellies and bubbles fire away.

Scrub your face with a bit of the rock salt if you can bear it, rinse and then smoosh on mask and climb into your hot bath, oh and a glass of chilled prosecco should be poured now with the bottle handy by the bath. Soak and sup. When you’re ready shower off and wash hair. A cold shower should really finish this but if you can’t bear it at least a cooler one to close your pores.

SOFA AND ROBE CHILLOUT

Hopefully you have a fluffy robe that you can put on and lie down on the sofa a bit of cucumber on each eye if you have it and relax for ten minutes. Then slaver yourself with body cream and your favourite perfume. If you have a slave at hand he/she should do the slavering and a massage at the same time. Rest drink more prosecco and maybe listen to a meditation recording Xmas choir music (very mellow)

RAID ALL YOUR XMAS FOOD

A modest raid before my next session.

Your squirreled supply of Xmas goodies are never really appreciated on the day, be sinful and go see what you fancy now you are cleansed, refreshed and mildly pickled from your prosecco. Take your nibbles to the sofa and zone out with a Xmas movie preferably in black and white…..

Fortnum and Mason chockies dwarling!

Fall into a blissful sleep and next morning go to the airport and fly to somewhere fabulous!!!

PEACE BE WITH YOU AND YOU KIN THIS XMAS!

Beaky bye bye
