Hi Katzguk,

I think I should be embarrassed to admit my lack of social life, but I'm free apart from 26-27/3. Oh god, I already have no life!!!!!!

feastofstevenmom · 13/12/2004 21:05

Envy at idea of Spa day

apologies for the random lurking!

Uwila · 14/12/2004 09:19

Well then, Jonah, you won't have to adjust much when the baby arrives... apart from fantasising about when you used to sleep.

Scraggyaggy · 14/12/2004 13:30

I am not free the weekends of:

19/20 Feb
26/27 March
16/17 April
23/24 April

I would suggest..... the 26/27 Feb or 5/6 March?

Can't wait!

MrsWednesday · 14/12/2004 13:54

I'm not free the weekend of the 4th/5th Feb but apart from that, I don't have much going on.

Should be fab!

JonahB · 16/12/2004 18:43

I can do 26/27th feb if that fits in with anyone else other than me and Scraggyyaggy....

Scraggyaggy · 30/12/2004 09:03

26/27 Feb would be good for me. Any other takers?

katzguk · 03/01/2005 13:30

26/27 fine by me too.

Once have approx numbers will ring sap and find out best way to book, and see how many bump massages they cna do in one go!!

I think 26/27 Feb should be fine for me too.

Scraggyaggy · 11/01/2005 21:23

So it is all on for the 26/27 Feb then?

rosies · 12/01/2005 09:09

hi girls,

i certainly dont want to put a dampener on your day, which i know you are all in need of and looking forward to, but as you are all in different stages of pregnancy, make sure your therapists are aware and preferably experienced or even qualified in pregnancy treatments.

when booking, definitely tell them you are a group of pregnant women as some places wont even touch you!

aside from that... have a lovely time and let us know how it goes!

katzguk · 12/01/2005 09:18

okay so lets say the 26/27th i will ring and ask them about how many at each time for a bump massage

Lua · 12/01/2005 11:16

I am not exactly the world's most organized person in the world , so its hard to commit so far ahead... But I expect I would be able to go!

katzguk · 12/01/2005 16:06


have spoken to the spa and they can do
2 of us at a time on the 26th or
3 of us at a time on the 27th. The massages on the 27th could start from 12.30. The lady is happy to take a group booking from me providing that you all then rang through with a credit card number to confirm your place.

Those waiting to be massaged can sit in the relaxation room sipping nice drinks (non-alcoholic). or go off and have something else done if they are feeling rich! anyone who would like to come and do something less expensive than the new life massage then feel free the relaxation room in central to all treatments.

If we now we will also get it at the 2004 price because the new prices haven't been released yet.

So final decisions and numbers please!

If you book and then need to cancel providing it is more than 48hrs in advance then there is no charge.

one more thing there is no deposit just a need to leave a credit card number in case you don;t turn up so they can charge you!!

Katzguk, thanks for finding out all this information!!

So far we seem to have potentials of:
Katzguk, JonahB, Scraggyaggy, Mrs Wednesday, Lua. Anyone else?

I am definitely up for the massage and I can do either the 26th or the 27th, so if any of the rest of you have a preference for a date, I'll fit in with you guys. Count me in

katzguk · 12/01/2005 19:05

i think the 27th would be better just based on less waiting around

OP posts:
Scraggyaggy · 13/01/2005 08:01

How long do the massages take again? I don't mind which day, but as you say the 27th means less "hanging about". We could meet up for an hour beforehand or sthg?

Scraggyaggy · 18/01/2005 07:33

Katz - Can you let us know when to ring and give our card details? Am soooooooo excited! x

Scraggyaggy · 23/01/2005 12:02

Hi, Am just bumping up this thread so we can get booking. x

JonahB · 23/01/2005 15:32

27th is fine with me too. Just let me know when, and I'll get my credit card out.....

katzguk · 23/01/2005 21:09

okay last call for numbers and what people want, massage or manicure ect please see the link to the spa, then post on here with what and then i will ring up on wednesday to book, and post here and people can then ring up with their card details. I think i now have most of your names because of the present for sweetheart so i will endevour to put one booking in each name if not i will just use mine!

OP posts:
Lua · 24/01/2005 10:58

All right.... You guys will now know what a cave woman am I.... But, I never had a massage in my life! It is one of these things that sounds fabulous, but I am afraid that in practice I'll be weird out about having a total stranger see my body and touch me.
Do any of the "experienced" woman have some wise advice on whether I should try it out, or just go for a bath?

katzguk · 24/01/2005 11:01

i'm not keen on the whole massage thing but i'm going to give it a go maybe might just have a pedicure or something!!

OP posts:
JonahB · 24/01/2005 12:28


I've had a few massages in the past and they are HEAVEN!!!! A good massage is just too fantastic for words. I'll have a look on the website later (when I'm not drowning under e-mails from my manager) and make a choice.

JonahB · 24/01/2005 17:52


I feel slightly on my own here. Is anyone else planning to try a massage? If no one else is, then I'll do something else (otherwise you'll all be sitting around having a lovely natter and I cant join in ). If anyone else is going to try a massage as well, I'll probably go for this one:

New Life Pregnancy Massage 1hr £45.00
The rebalancing and relieving treatment helps firm and moisturise the skin, reduce swelling of the feet and ankles and induce a relaxed state of mind. This treatment is not recommended during the first trimester of pregnancy.
