Bon Voyage

Hi there, this will be my last blog before my holiday. Tomorrow we fly to Portugal for a week. We are staying in a friends gorgeous villa and I will post some piccys on our return.

On Saturday I went to a local fete and found a couple of goodies. The mirror was £2 and I will eventually paint it white. I love the colour of the vase and seem to remember something similar on my Nanna's mantlepiece...that was 50p. The crocheted cloth is in perfect condition, though needs a bit of a wash, at 20p and six pretty napkins in lovely creamy linen....3op! Not a bad haul all in all.

I have also been tagged by
Sian so here goes:

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

Well I had just found out that I was expecting my darling Isabel.

2. 5 things on my to do list?

Finish my packing for tomorrow.

Finish my fairy doll.

Find an NHS dentist, (mine had gone private and J recently paid £115 for a filing)!!! Can't sustain that on 2 part time wages.

Spring clean the house, it is like a midden at the moment.

Start making a shopping list as I am spending far too much money and usually come home without the most important things like loo roll and dog food.

3. Snacks I enjoy?

Well basically, if it is edible, I like it!

4. Things I would do if I were a millionaire?

Buy a Louis Vuitton Handbag.

Buy a Chloe handbag.

Buy a Prada Handbag

Buy a Gucci handbag...the list is endless. Would probably buy shares in a chocolate factory and buy up greenbelt sites to stop developers building on them.

5. Places I have lived?

I was born in Germany, then came back to UK and lived in Wiltshire, had a spell in the Outer Hebrides and then settled in Kent.

I am now going to tag these lucky ladies and hope that they haven't already had the pleasure. If you are not sure how it works, read the rules on Sian s blog.

Natalie - summer by the sea.

Marja - home from the heart.

Stephanie - my sweet fairy.

Colleen - frostings and sparkles.

Sal - sals snippets.

Well bloggers, it's a tough job flying to Portugal and lazing around the pool for a week, eating, drinking, more eating, reading. more eating, etc etc. Someone has to do it though, so will see you all when I get back. Bye for now. Devina XX

Hi Devina - Glad you had a great time in Portugal too - We were at Praia de Rocha - the next place along to Alvor - and we caught the train to Lagos on one of the days - what a coincidence! Done all the washing and half the ironing - nothing like coming back to earth with a bump eh? - Natalie x
