Me and him decide to have an end-of-Summer/ start-of-Autumn break - a night away, just the two of us. We live in London and UK trips tend to be to Scotland (my parents) or Suffolk (his parents), so this is a big deal.
So, when we arrive at the spa for a swim and steam, we're positively glowing. It's not one of those pools where you have to dodge cannon-balling children either. It's serene and fragrant - a few lengths is no chore.
That night - after a nap in the comfiest bed you've ever seen - we stroll to dinner at one of Coworth Park's restaurants, The Barn. We start with champagne, before moving onto baked Camembert, a splashy Sunday roast pork, sea bream salad and then Eton Mess.
A light red wine accompanies us and we have the best conversation we've had in months. We laugh, we smile, we say to each other, you're actually pretty great. If you could bottle the good vibe in this restaurant, you'd make millions.
A walk back to our suite under the stars seals the deal - we want to live in Coworth Park. But we can't so we promise each other we must - MUST! - come back. The next day we leave rosy-cheeked, ready to take on autumn and seriously relaxed.
Yes, it was only one day and night away from normality. But was it worth it? A week on, I'm still feeling more zen than I have in ages.
