Summer Holiday Shenanigans!

I'm back! The hubby and i went to Egypt for our summer holiday this year and returned last week. We had two weeks in Sharks Bay, Sharm El Sheikh, All Inclusive, 40 oC every day! The hotel was great, we stayed at The Hilton. It was so nice to have a relaxing two weeks not worrying about anything, moving from hotel room to restaurant to sun bed to pool... I'll be honest after two weeks we were definitely ready to come home, but i am sure in a few weeks when we're back slugging away at school we will be wishing we were by the gorgeous pool!

Our hotel had its own section of private beach with a jetty going out over the coral which was great to snorkel off. I've never been snorkeling before so it was great to try it, saw quite a lot of fish and the sea was lovely!

We had a good last weekend of the holidays, we went to see the in laws. My sister-in-law is off travelling ending up in Australia and she had a 'Round the World' themed fancy dress party to say goodbye to all her mates and family. I'm always a bit skeptical of fancy dress and hate having to organise an outfit! But the hubby and i put our heads together and came up with a pretty good one i think!

Felt like a complete idiot but we did have a laugh. We were really impressed with the effort everyone went to for the party! I know Briony really appreciated it. She's off on Wednesday so good luck to her and i hope she has a brilliant time travelling!

Over the weekend i have been busy 'hooking', my random blue blanket is really coming on (also thanks to Linda's help)! I am hoping to have a ta da post in the next couple of weeks. I'm on my last row of squares and then I've got to go round the whole thing with a border. I am on the look out for a nice border for the edge, not too wide. So if you know of any, let me know!

We've got a busy month coming up - back to work on Wednesday sadly, but the weekend after next we have a wedding to go to in South Devon so I'm making myself a dress for that (I'll post pics when I'm finished), then its the hubby's birthday following weekend, then weekend after that we're back to South Devon for hubby's Grandma's 80th Birthday where we're going to a posh hotel for dinner and dancing! Fancy frock needed again for that too!

Well i hope you have all had a great summer, mine has been good, but definitely went too fast!!!
