Our 1 year anniversary

30 October 2009

The Kiwi and I recently celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary - which came around like lightning! As the big day drew closer we started to discuss how and where we'd like to celebrate. Hsving just spent several months re-ecorating the house and then a month entertaining my parents who were visiting from Australia, we decided something low key and inexpensive was top priority.

So being the organiser that he is, Kiwi went off and booked a suite at boutique hotel about an hours drive south of London. Sounded brilliant to me. And brilliant it was.

Unassuming brick veneer on the outside but oh so decadent and cosy on the inside. We were escorted to the Scarlet Suite which boasts a king size four posted canopy bed, a bay window with chaise lounge, a large spa bath with candles and a sitting area that comprises of a comfy black 2-seater love seat, a wall mounted plasma (complete with a small box of soft adult material should you wish to indulge) and a rustic dining table for two with high backed leather chairs. It was perfect and Kiwi and I immediately soaked up the atmosphere with a bubble bath a bottle of bubbly. We later had our 3 course meal brought to our room and locked ourselves away in the splendour of it all.

All in all a memorable 1st anniversary with thanks to
