This week Son in law was on a business trip and so I drove to the city to stay with Daughter1 and Petit Fille (I know, I have martyr written all over me… or maybe that is just baby spit). Yesterday I arranged for inhome massages for D1 and I to combat some of the neck and back aches we were suffering from walking the floor with a colicy baby.
It was bliss.
I was a little worried when the therapist arrived without her massage oils but luckily D1 had some lavender oil and so we were away. One hour of sheer relaxation. D1 had her treatment first while I played with Petit Fille and then it was my turn…ahhhhh
Somehow The Big Whatever even arranged a rain storm while I was relaxing so I had bingie bongie relaxation music (my term, not an actual genre of music, but I think you all understand they type of music I mean), rain on a tin roof and a great massage that amounted to an hour of sheer bliss.
Afterwards Petit Fille had a long sleep (for her). We weren’t sure if she was overcome by the lavender fumes or her reflux medication had clicked in, but either way we were grateful. Smiles all around.
I would suggest as a gift for any new Mum and Grandma – inhouse massages; just remember to have someone there to hold the baby!
[Therapist said she would arrange a refund for the cost of the oil – we shall see]
