Sorry about the absence of blogging this week but I've been sunning myself in 30 degree temps in Spain all week LOL! Read about it on the journal page above if you like. The first time I have been on hols with my entire family - all 13 of us - 7 adults and 6 kids all in a ginormous villa in the Spanish mountains. I think we were lucky with the weather 'cos it was hot and sunny every day, not bad for October. The children are all aged between 6 and 10 and they had a fabby time with each other and barely got out of the swimming pool. I even went into the pool on a few occasions (solar heated my ar*e!)
Here are a few pics from the week. For those of you in kinder climates remember that England can be very dreary at this time of the year; it's cold, wet, dark and windy. Unlike Spain! Check this out:
Look! Olives growing on trees! I usually only see them in jars........
I loved this little visitor to my sun lounger (as long as he didn't get too close...)
An here's the villa in the middle of the mountains:
My 10 year old niece - we call her Mart - LOVES art and craft, she is my partner in crime. We spent a bit of time together this holiday just 'messing about'. We had limited resources with us but she really took to using my neocolours. The collage elements we cut out of her Mum's magazine while she wasn't looking! This is Mart's art:
She's got the hang of the funky, whimsical look don't ya think?
And finally, here is a finished journal page. I blogged this in its unfinished state but had some time for journaling while I was away.
Haven't had much chance to go blog hopping yet but hope to catch up with you all soon. Byeeeeeeeeee
