Break Away

I have had an unintentional blog break. I do find every year when the Children and my OH are on School Holidays, my whole routine goes out the door. No more quiet mornings scrolling through my favourite blogs, no time in the evenings to write a post, and with 3 people having a pretty good time relaxing, I can't help but join them.

Although...... we have been to Lanzarote for 2 weeks (no wifi), a few nights in Manchester and on Saturday my Dad is coming over from New Zealand for 9 days. So that sort of counts me out till the beginning of September! I have noticed the weeks are flying by very quickly.

Lanzarote is beautiful and we did take advantage of the beautiful beaches and scenery. We went to the local volcanic mountain 'Timanfaya' park, which struck me as very barren and beautiful.

Before we left for our two week holiday, I managed to find some lovely charity shop/second hand goodies for my Vintage swap partner Karen at 'The White approach' organised by the lovely Lakota at Faith Hope and Charity Shopping. Although I am a bit forlorn as I still have not received mine! Maybe the Post Office are on Summer Holidays as well? Anyway I will wait with excitement for my parcel.

Lastly I ran a Hazel and Blue giveaway last month for Issue 3 of Mollie Makes magazine see here, and I have a winner....... its Max from Blackbird has Spoken !
Congratulations Max! I will been sending your prize all the way over to the South Island of New Zealand soon. (I have heard that its been snowing this week!)

I am looking forward to catching up and commenting on all your blogs. Sorry I have not been able to comment recently.



  1. Glad you're having a wonderful summer hols. Enjoy the time with your dad. xx

  2. Lovely photo's, they say 'summer' so loudly. Enjoy the rest of the hols, look forward to hearing more...

  3. Looks and sounds like a wonderful summer Becky!
    We have indeed been snowed in for the last three days, though we've had some melt overnight more snow is expected! I'm delighted to have won Mollie Makes and I daresay I'll have some postman angst myself impatiently waiting for it to arrive! Thanks so much x

  4. We all need to take a break sometime. Hope the remainder of your summer holiday is as relaxing as the beginning seems to have been.

  5. Hi lovely, I'm having the same withdrawal symptoms from blogging over the Summer hols - trying to catch up when I can. I love Lanzarote, my inlaws used to have an apartment there. Did you go to the caves?

    Have you spoken to Karen? Do you know if she's posted yet?

  6. Sounds like you've had an amazing holiday.

  7. Hi Swap partner! Tried to email you at your blog email addie but it bounced back, drop me an email with your addie so I can start the jubilee swap shopping :o)) Scarlett x
