Down To Earth With A Bump!!

Well its official I am having serious post holiday blues. My mum has had flu for 2 weeks and I am absolutely jiggered - I have only gotten as far as Tesco within the last fortnight!!
On the plus side I did manage to make it to the Newcastle / Spurs game on Monday night and we won! On the negative side we got beat yesterday! Boo!
Other that the past week has been boring as hell -I have watched loads of TV, eaten like a horse and slept for most of it(I went to bed at 9.45 last night!)! I have managed to make a dent in my Xmas shopping which is good and I have eventually enrolled in my correspondence counselling course - with the dark night coming on I really needed something to keep my brain alive!!
I am also returning to my novel - I had what I thought was a good idea for a book about a year ago and didn't really do much about it but I have decided to start some serious research and think about getting something down on paper after all they do say that everyone has a book in them somewhere!
Plans for the week - not too exciting - a bit of cooking this afternoon, some TV and maybe a library visit and of course Halloween! More later in the week x

The Reintroduction of Wispa - The Verdict!


Well I managed to grab a couple of Wispa bars from the airport before I went on holiday and I have to say they were as yummy as they always were but like most chocolate bars they were a lot smaller! Why on earth do manufacturers do this - do they think we won't notice an inch of chocolate bar is missing!

Every Holiday Has Its Negatives!


OK I had an absolutely fabulous holiday but knowing me it was bound to have its negatives. Mainly that me and my mum and half of Cyprus got absolutely savaged by mosquito's - I have scratchy little bites everywhere! Argh! Trying desperately not to scratch them so scratching around them and rubbing yuck!

We have also come back with cold and potential colds - I don't suppose that can be helped with such a dramatic temperature change but never mind!

Beach Babes!





More pics - me and my mum being beach babes!

The Wanderer Returns!




I am back !!! Returned to cold and dreary England late on Sunday night! God what a change! the temperature in Cyprus never dropped below 30 degrees during the day!

I had fab time - the weather was great, the hotel and resort was lovely, the food was great even I found something to eat - great cheese, veg, yogurt, eggs and cocktails ;) I even put weight on!

The beach was fab and was really relaxing - I have had colder baths than the sea all with ickle fish swimming around your feet. The shops were really good too and I bought loads of stuff including jewellery, smellies, candle holders and of course handbags! We went to Nicosia too which was a nice change from the beach and there were even more super cute shops and big department stores like Debenhams.

Perhaps though the best thing was that I hardly felt a single ME ache or pain in all the time I was there - admittedly the heat made me tired and the airport was a bit bleurgh! but the warmth really helped my aching muscles - that was a huge plus point and is a major reason why we will definitely go back!

Plus the kitty cats seemed to have a good time too what more could you ask?

Here are some pics to make you jealous!

Sunshine Here I Come!

Well here it is my last post for about a week - tomorrow I jet off for a week of hopefully sunny sun in Cyprus. I hope I will be OK with the heat and I don't have any bad spells while I am away. Hopefully the change of scenery and heat will be a good thing (fingers crossed) Obviously feeling a bit erm about leaving the lads but they will be having a little holiday of their own not in any cattery you understand but a cat hotel! so hopefully they will be OK!
Not much else to say really apart from the fantastic news that Wispa bars are been reintroduced on a limited edition basis - well done Cadbury for listening to your consumers Wispa Golds now please!
OK chicks see you soon (hopefully when I am nice and tanned!)
