Being with Theresa - Part two

But wait there is more...
is mention in the previous post my trip to Wellington was to be with Theresa while she had appointments to try on gowns for her up coming wedding. These were fr Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings and although I am not going to show you she and I think one in particular is so right for her.

Theresa wanted this time away to be for me a time of rest and pampering.

On Thursday I had a full one hour body massage and it was truly relaxing and soothing. Theresa had to go into work for awhile so we met up in a cafe later so as to walk back to the apartment together.

With the recent diagnosis of my heart condition one of the things I am to do is start some gentle exercise and with Theresa and Steven living right in the city we walked everywhere. 

Friday lunch was spent with my parents who also live in Wellington but we were able to borrow a car and drove out to the suburbs to see them.

I don't get to see them very often (Wellington is about 470 kilometers away from Tirau where we live) so it was a blessing to chat and catch up on news face to face instead of over the phone.

We both had major things going on in our lives to share, and we wanted to be with each other when we did.

After lunch was the first of two surprises Theresa had organized for her and I.

East Day Spa  is on Level 2, of the old Tramways Building, 1 Thorndon Quay, Wellington.

Step into East Day Spa and discover a place of calm and serenity.

The philosophy behind East Day Spa is to stimulate holistic wellbeing for the busy urbanite. The East Day Spa experience combines:

Eastern-style natural holistic skin, massage and beauty treatments that have stood the test of time
Warm and nurturing hospitality and spa treatments for men and women that gently soothe, heal and relax
A tranquil urban haven with decor inspired by the exotic and mystical East.

We had a pedicure and manicure and it was very soothing.

Saturdays treat was with two others and we were booked into Martha's Pantry  at 276 Cuba St, Wellington Central.
It is described as:
An old-fashioned tea room complete with counter-food, cupcakes, coffee, tea and other goodies. Martha's Pantry also do high-tea - 3 tiers of the most delicious sweet and savoury goodies plus superb tea. 

I think only the photos will help to describe it more

And then when walking back down Cuba street and admiring the old buildings...

we spied a gown in a shop window...

complete with matching pink bridesmaid dresses!!

Needless to say they weren't really what we were looking for.

So home Saturday I flew through a stormy night to arrive safely back home truly blessed by a fun-filled time with my eldest daughter.

Thank you Theresa for a wonderful time.
