Hi everyone!
Well I had a crazy week at work, at the end of the week I ended up with a new title at work and a promise of a promotion and hopefully a pay raise. 

On Friday I left work early for a planned Valentines getaway with my Love! I had made all the arrangements without letting Cathrine know where we were going and or what we were going to do. I made reservations for the two of us to spend Friday night at Hasselby Slott, It is a high end hotel that is a castle.  It was built in 1650 and is a beatiful building. The grounds are very beatuiful and the best of all it is not far from where I live.

I had to come up with a story to tell Cathrine about why we were going to Hasselby Slott and I came up with a story that we were going to meet a bus that would take us to where we were going to spend the night.  Instead it was the destination that I had planned all along.

Our room was awesome. We had a sauna in the bathroom.  I had reserved a suite for the night and it was one of the two wings of the orignial castle building.  There are other rooms around the grounds but this was perfect.

Great room

Sauna for two!

When we walked out of the room to go to dinner the room opened up to the main court yard and it was just cool! I have never spent a night in a castle before.  

We had a great break from all the normal crazyness of life and enjoyed a good dinner and a quiet night alone. Remember I am here in Sweden to be with the woman I love!

Our table at the restaurant
Yes I did do some building of my wargaming miniatures. I finally glued together the 12 foot men at arms for Lion Rampant but I did not paint them up yet.

Well have a great week and remember the loved ones in your life!
