I am back from sailing the seas!

Hi everyone!

I just got back from my holidays about 4 hours ago and the washing machine is now in overdrive!  I would like to say thank you to everyone who left lovely comments for me while I was away.  The posts that I scheduled over my holiday seemed to post okay.

It will take me a while to catch up with my blogging as I haven't been on line for over a week.  Please bear with me, I will come and visit you again soon!

My family have just spent a fantastic week cruising around the Mediterranean - it was my first cruise, but probably not my last!  I loved the excitement of waking up in a new port each morning and the ship's crew were totally amazing and treated their passengers so wonderfully.

I thought I'd share a few of my snaps with you ...

Here's the ship, small in comparison to some I saw, but I still had problems finding my way around all of the decks after a week.  There were 1,500 passengers and 500 crew on board so it was like a floating town!

This is where we went:  Palma, Mallorca - Tangiers and Casablanca, Morocco (stayed on the ship in Tangiers, Casablanca ... not what I was expecting at all - glad I saw it but wouldn't go there again, ever!) - Gibralta - Duty free shopping Yay!!! - Almeria, Spain (loved it!) and Alicante, Spain (pleasantly surprised by Alicante!).

However, here's the place I spent most of my time (with my All Inclusive drinks card, yum!!!) .....

Here's me in one of my "posh frocks" that I bought.  I now own 6 dresses, this has never been known before!  I am strictly a jeans and trainers girl at home!  However, I do have a bit of a handbag thing.  I took 5 with me and bought another 3 during the week!

Back to reality now and I can't wait to get back into my blogging again!

Thanks for looking!!!
