This weekend I decided to take myself off for a bit of detox having become quite exhausted from travel, work and cleaning over the past few months.
I went back to Ironmonger Row Baths in Islington/Shoreditch where Big T and I had recovered during the renovations on the Money Pit in the depths of winter in 2015.
I booked a Spa and Turkish Bath experience and spent several hours flopping around between sauna, steam, tepidarium and then the hamman. Seemed there were a few different cultures going on!
I was steamed, soaked, scrubbed, oiled and boiled and by the end of it was covered in a thick coating of shea butter which was a bugger to get off.
I emerged into the late summer sunlight like a pink, shiny, suckling pig all ready for the rotisserie and went home for a bit more relaxing.
