El Crapola morning in the spa

One of the things I love love love about holidays is the chance to try out new and different spa treatments – and possibly bring word about different or exotic treatments back to our fair isle.

But this time it was not to be. Oh no.

I had three treatments. One was a chocolate bath which I was really looking forward to. But it didn´t even smell like chocolate. And the surly girl who administered it turned the jets up so high they kept drenching me in the face. Not good I can assure you.

The same girl hurried me to treatment number two: a theraputic neck and shoulders massage. I always try to get one of these after a plane journey due to the ongoing neck problems I’ve probably bored the arse off you all with many times before. Now generally when you ask for a theraputic treatment it’s not going to be relaxing or soothing – it’s going to be sore because it´s targeting problem areas. Extremely tense muscles and so on. Perfect for the ring of iron around my neck so. But my god did this one hurt. I gritted my teeth and yelped in pain a few times. “Less pressure” I begged on a couple of occasions, but she was having none of it.

I couldn’t believe my luck. The torturer was also administering my express facial. True to form she scrubbed the face off me with a sandpaper like scrub and towels that felt like a cats tounge. I didn’t bother to say anything to her – I don’t think she spoke any English. Plus, her obvious hatred for her job silenced me further.

When I got home, I looked in the mirror. My eyeliner was still on.

Oh well. Can’t win em all, eh.

    Ooh, SO not good. Had similar experience at Knightsbrook when my therapist decided that she couldn’t be arsed to clean off my hand scrub properly and I had bits of grit all stuck in my nail varnish. It’s so disappointing, you want to yell ‘hellOH, this is supposed to be a pampering experience, not bloody torture!!!’ lol.
