I was amazed when I won a Spa day on twitter with Beko and even more excited when I got the details.

It was basically the use of the spa at the K West Hotel and Spa, and a treatment, there was so many from massages, manicures etc.

So first decision who to take, well its my usual week day prize partner, my friend Jo, she works from home so always available last-minute for any wins or trips to be taken during the week. Next was what treatment, we chose a top price pedicure.

But that was not it, we got to have a lunch with Kirsty Gallacher.

First we got there and had our pedicure, it was brilliant, and we even got to keep the colour of nail varnish we chose. The off to our lunch, well it was more like dinner, 3 courses and I sat next to Kirsty, woop. I had to promise Jo I wouldnt take photos of the food, boo We had choices from

• Stilton & walnut salad with pear, chicory & honey lemon dressing (V)
• Grilled asparagus, poached duck egg & hollandaise Air dried ham, fig, and rocket & shaved pecorino
• Smoked salmon, beetroots, horseradish cream, rocket & lemon

Mains

• Risotto with peas, broad beans, sun dry tomato & shaved parmesan
• Roast duck breast, jersey royal potato, spinach & rosemary Jus
• Grilled salmon, fennel, roasted baby tomato, green beans & olive dressing

Desserts

• Chocolate Brownie with ice cream
• Apple pie with vanilla ice cream
• Cheese platter, oat biscuits and red onion chutney

Jo had – Stilton & walnut salad, Grilled Salmon and Choc Brownie, me I chose Smoked salmon, Risotto and choc brownie. Also we had 2 glasses of rose wine with lunch, so you can imagine we was very happy.

After lunch we had to have piccys done for the website etc, I looked awful but Kirsty was immaculate as usual.

So pics all done, it was time to hit the spa, by this time it was 5pm, so we didnt stay in too long, well long enough to try all the indvidual rooms, steam, snow, sauna etc. Then we relaxed in the hydrotherapy pool. Then we decided to make a move and start our journey home, it was 6.30pm after all with a 90 mins journey!

But we couldnt resist popping in the pub on the way home for a sneaky barcardi and coke, well all this relaxing was hard work, lol

We had a great day, and always have a giggle with Jo x
