UNWINDING WITH THE BF GALS
“Work hard, play hard.”
Why? Because that’s how we roll at Berge Farrell. We work in a stressful and pressurising industry and that’s why we believe spending time together out of the office is essential for building good relationships and recharging our batteries. It’s also an excellent excuse to have some fun!
So recently a few of us decided to treat ourselves to a well deserved day of pampering at the spa. This being a new adventure for me, having never been to a spa, I was counting down the sleeps in anticipation.
The day finally arrived and, needless to say, it exceeded my expectations. Upon our arrival we wasted no time in replacing our jeans and T-shirts with terry cloth gowns and slippers. Then came the champagne, biltong and of course, Lindt chocolates (we stay loyal to our clients at all times).
Oh, the decadence!
We lounged for a while by the indoor heated pool, chatting while we waited to further indulge ourselves with an out-of-this-world Swedish massage. This consisted of one glorious hour of complete and utter BLISS.
I managed to walk out of the massage with a modicum of dignity, half asleep but feeling totally rejuvenated … and surprisingly ravenously hungry although I did nothing but lie there.
Next came a nutritious lunch and oh, more champagne. All I needed after that was a bed and I could have slept for days. All too soon the dream was over. It was time to say goodbye to my terry cloth robe and slippers … until the next time!
