Our corner of France has had nothing but sun, sun, and more sun. Gibbs is a happy dog because he can go for a dip in our little stream to cool down – something he does at every opportunity. Water is somewhat murky though and I honestly don’t feel like following suit. Yet, I’ve been suffering from the heat, with swollen hands & feet (due to bad circulation) and my back, which still isn’t 100% has been causing more leg pain.
My lovely husband took pity on me, and was trying to think of a solution, bearing in mind that summer temperatures are likely to continue well into September. The solution he came up with is
Our own little private spa! It’s basically a glorified inflatable paddling pool, but a bit more high-tech. A Bestway “Lay-Z- Spa”, the “Paris” model. The advertising photo shows
It has a pump with an incorporated heating system so water can be heated (or you can just leave the cover on for part of the day and let the sun heat it up) . . . and then bubbles. Lots of lots of bubbles that massage.
I never imagined having something like this in the back garden, but now it’s there, I have to say – yippee!!! It’s brilliant! Ever so refreshing to take a dip, and let the bubbles massage my back. It’s a bit noisey when the bubbles are doing their thing, but oh! how relaxing!
We don’t go away on holiday, so with this spa, I’ll be able to take frequent dips throughout the day, and keep fresh. A shame it’s not practical to do needlecrafts at the same time.
