Just a quick one today. I'm writing this from a hotel room in Blackpool where I am for a work conference.

When I travel I tend to spend as little on accommodation as possible without putting my health or safety at risk. So a stay in a reasonably upmarket hotel is quite a treat.

My hotel in question has a pool, sauna and steam room so I was really looking forward to getting up this morning and having a spot of pampering before workshops. However, two days ago I became very suddenly and violently sick at work and spend the best part of 9 hours cowering in bathrooms. Hideous.

Fortunately it seemed to be gone by the next morning and I made it to conference without incident but my body feels tender and weak and in no fit state to go swimming, sauna-ing or steam room-ing.

I'm not much of a pamperer and don't shell out on beauty treatments. I can give myself a good mani/pedicure but I do like the occasional massage. Writing this has reminded me that I haven't had one since I moved to London so I think I'll look for somewhere to book soon. If you know a good place, let me know!
