HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY. Although it’s not so happy when you appreciate the focus this year. According to the World Economic Forum, the gender gap won’t entirely close until 2186. Not sure how they’ve worked that out, but that is ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY NINE YEARS AWAY. THAT IS WAAAAAY […]

Did you go to the march yesterday? How cool was that to see hundreds of thousands of women throughout the world turning streets into a sea of pink pussy hats yesterday, sending the first major message of grassroots opposition to Trump. Pussy Gate is still entirely feasible. “Sister marches” were […]

According to hospital figures, there has been a significant increase in attacks against people over 50, particularly women, putting a stop to the 7 year decline in serious violent crime in England and Wales. Attacks on women over 50 has risen by 20%, but researchers “have little idea why the […]

Calling all female engineers. PLEASE redesign a more female friendly Mammogram machine. I had a routine Mammogram yesterday. Honestly, I do wonder why they haven’t yet invented a slightly more comfortable machine than simply shoving each breast into a press. Maybe with a cup shape attached so that it fits […]

THANK YOU to The Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden for inviting me to spend the day there with some friends. What an amazingly luxurious day we had. So lovely to be right in the heart of busy London and yet reclining on sun loungers or swimming in their famous pool or having a treatment. It’s like a rabbit warren when you get in there – all under the streets of London are rooms filled with hidden treasures.
Here are my two friends on arrival – literally round the corner from Covent Garden tube or a five minute walk from Leicester Square:-
The spa first opened its doors in 1977 and was created by a US Choreographer as a gift of love to his ballerina wife and it soon became a magical retreat for the dancers of the Royal Ballet to come and relax after training. I think I first went there in the 80’s and again in the 90’s and not much has changed.
Here is the main relaxation area:-
This is me on the swing:-
It’s most definitely something you should do for a day with girlfriends – so relaxing and rejuvenating. For the last 35 years they have continued offering their facilities to women whilst allowing them to enjoy precious time together with friends and family. Sanctuary Spa is a fun place for enjoyment, whether you’re indulging in a glass of bubbly while lounging by the serene Koi Carp pools, applying a Moroccan mud mask or feeling aches and pains dissolve under the skilled fingers of their therapists.

I am very pleased to note that a recent Travel Trends Report for 2013 has acknowledged a rise in groups of women travelling together on holiday. In particular a significant emerging group that has been identified is that of “girlfriends holidaying with mates post-divorce,’ – WOOHOO – that’s me then. […]
