I'm Back!!

We've arrived back from our hols and if I'm honest I need another to recover from it - it was hell!!

On the positive side - the hotel complex itself was nice. Very spacious, 3 large pool areas, palm trees everywhere and its own private beach.

On the negative - no shade to sit under around the poolside drink areas, 40+ degree heat, food that made you wish you were spending time at "Her Majesty's Pleasure", staff that uncooperative to say the least, and a stomach bug that had me in bed for 3 days.

But then again as I came home 8lb lighter maybe the last point above is really a positive!!

To top it all off, the taxi we had booked to bring us back from the airport wasn't there to greet us and when DH got through to them (this was at 1am) even said there was nothing in their records although they did confirm that DD's car seat was in their office!! And the boiler seems to have give up the ghost whilst we've been gone - but at least the plumber is coming tomorrow.

Well enough of feeling sorry for myself. Here are a couple of pics.

The first is of DS (15) and DD (nearly 4) not squabbling for once!!

And the second I've named - "You can take the girl out of the pool ..."

On a crafty/sewing level, as I'm off to see my sister and my new neice at the weekend I only have a couple of days to make a fleece hat and matching mittens set plus my Fairy Tale Swap item.
