HOLIDAY REPORT...

Well here we are back from holidays and what fun we had...first of we went to Disneyland Paris. We flew from Glasgow Prestwick which is a great little airport about 30 minutes further South than Glasgow's main airport...and when you can get flights to Paris for 120 quid for 6 people you don't mind going a little further...lolFirst day and Allan took Morgan and Ellie to queue for some of the faster rides and I took Libby and Niamh to the more genteel ones!!!
This was them in the Alice in Wonderland Maze...I remember it from last time...so much fun with things popping out at you and water scooshing you at every turn...

This is the Mark Twain paddle steamer - it takes you for a wee sail round Big Thunder Mountain and back again. I used the photo editing tool Time Machine to change it to around the 1850s...looks quite cool I thot!!
The girls in front of an old fashioned American ice-cream van with The Hollywood Tower of Terror in the background (that's where Allan and Morgan were)...no thanks!!!
A rare photo of them all smiling - there is usually one with a grumpy face...
I love this one!!
Enjoying dinner in the Rainforest Cafe...it was just as cool as we remembered it from the last time we were there 6 years ago (really doesn't seem that long ago)...

This is the castle preparing for the Fireworks extravaganza which was amazing as it was pitch dark by the time they started with the parade and then the fireworks...Niamh was in her element here....

Had to get this picture as it's not very often you will see Niamh in a dress and doesn't she look sweet??? And so that was our Paris adventure over and then it was of to Yorkshire on our return...
First day we went to see our very good friend Mandy (have a look on her etsy shop - she does the most amazing things with felt!!) who lives in a village called Riccall which is quite near York...It's been 8 years since we last met up (our wedding), although we do talk on the phone and what not and it was fantastic to see her - she hasn't really changed that much since we first met nearly 20 years ago in Ibiza....
This is us now - I will really have to did out some old photos and do a comparison...


On the 2nd day we went to York and went round the Railway Museum which is awesome and most importantly FREE...lol...then we did the open top bus tour and the lady was really nice and didn't charge us for any of the kids and told us to go buy them an ice-cream instead - wasn't that nice of her???


3rd day we took a trip to Harrogate as Allan said the shops were quite good and I thought it would also be a good opportunity to go visit Dy at Art from the Heart but guess what???? She was closed much to my disappointment!!! Never mind we had a lovely day anyway...


I was glad to get back on Wednesday and that's really me just up to date now with everything - last of the washing is out on the line and kids are all in bed...practicing for getting up for school on the 18th August (yeehaa!!!) as the girls have summer dance school this week and Libby's starts at 9.30am...


I really need to get myself motivated again as I am 3 weeks behind with Claudine's workshop now and I have a couple of other things that I need to get done too...
