My husband and I are currently on a break without the kids. In normal circumstances I think I’d feel guilty about writing that but we’ve gone away to allow me to take sleeping pills every night in the hope that I’ll sleep (I’m an insomniac and in dire need of sleep).
Anyway, my husband very excitingly surprised me at the last-minute with a trip to Dubai. To say that I love to sunbathe is an understatement. Having the sun beat down on me and to feel its warmth makes me immeasurably happy. Why I continue to live in London then I just have no idea. So he’s whisked me away to allow me to sleep at night and relax in the sun reading books during the day. Perfect in every way.
It’s been made even more perfect in that we were upgraded to a fabulous suite. At the moment I’m sitting in an actual Sitting Room with a door leading to the Bedroom – AMAZING. It’s huge and we’re being spoilt.
We didn’t, however, pay for this suite. No. When my husband booked our standard double he mentioned that we would be celebrating our 6 year anniversary while out there (we in fact celebrated that back in April). Luckily he had pre warned me so when I was asked while checking in how many years we were celebrating it just flew off my tongue (I was highly impressed with how quickly lying came to me!. So, we’ve checked in and are being shown to our room and when they opened the door they said that they had upgraded us to help us celebrate in style. OMG – honestly OMG.
Not only are we staying in this amazing suite though but we also have free wifi (hence how I’m typing this now), free drinks all day by the pool and a bottle of their finest fizzy wine.
So…… how wrong is this, lying to get an upgrade?
I know lying is categorically wrong but surely this is just a little white lie? The room would have been going to waste? The fizzy wine would have gone off? We all deserve a little luxury in our lives??
So, a question to my lovely readers? Have you done this before and if not why not?
