Hot rocks and fears

I received a voucher from my sister in laws for my 40th last year. A hundred bucks to spend at the local beauty/nails/massage joint. I had been there before, to get my nails done for my wedding, and a couple of years later, a pedi with the works, which was AWESOME, a gift from my former boss. You can see I don't go there much. I'm booked in for a hot rock massage today, never had one. I am going to love it, I know I am. But I can't help but over think it.

My sister in law Marg is looking after the girls while I lay for an hour, in peace. No kids. No worries. I am still anxious though. What if I cry out of pure relief and release all of my emotion? Emotion that has been building up, I have felt it, in my shoulders. The pressures of everyday, of constant mothering.

What if I fall asleep? A snore, a spit dribble. Horror! I do too much thinking. I need not to worry, I need to just turn up, lay down and soak it up. Or is that suck it up. Suck it up sister, enjoy yourself, let yourself have some time on your own. Let other people look after your kids, take your time, don't rush back. Don't over think, don't feel like a nuisance for having some timeout. Enjoy, relax, breathe. It's gonna be OK.

  2. I love how you write, I bet it's how you speak. Just try and think of nothing but some HOT man (your hubby of course, wink wink) and relax. You totally deserve the time - ENJOY Alicia. Em x

  3. Just go and enjoy the experience. I do hot stone massages and have people who fall asleep - it is a testament to a good treatment if they can relax so much that they fall asleep. I also do reflexology and, to be honest, if my clients don't fall asleep, I feel like I haven't given them a good treatment !!!!! Relax and enjoy.
    Have a great weekend !

    1. It was blimin awesome. I should have asked her to keep going and make up the $100 voucher. But probably a good thing I still have $20 to use on another massage :)

  4. I haven't had one of these but I do love the sound of it. I have a birthday coming up and hope that something like this comes my way. And when I say hoping I mean making it blatantly clear to one and all!

  5. Ohhh! My favourite type of massage. So so so relaxing! I'm glad you got to have a bit of a self indulgent time, even if you did think it through a bit much ;)
