Its been a while.....



I think the less you blog, the less you blog, so apologies for going AWOL. Here are some of the things I've been up to.....


A trip to St Annes stopping rather cheaply at the new Travelodge. We love St Annes and have'nt been for a few years. Also a £3.50 day ticket saw us get the bus into Blackpool and a tram to Fleetwood. We've got another Travelodge deal booked for September and December, if you can catch the offers its great.


This is the case of a grandfather clock my dad made many years back, its my next project for a makeover. I'm having a bit of a bearmaking break until autumn but need something to 'do'.


This is where we spent a wonderful week in May. We love the Antalya region of Turkey, there are some wonderful hotels. This one is The Delphin Diva in Lara beach, a great hotel with the best staff ever..


Late but not least here is a bear I made a while back, bear with no name yet!


Oh and here is where we've been spending loads of time, barbecues, sunbathing.....

OK thats a fib, roll on summer!

Hi Amanda, we had a lovely holiday at Lara Beach two years ago, The people in Turkey are so friendly and welcoming to children I think. Your clock case looks interesting. The new bear is sweet, hope you think of a name for him. Betty

Looks as if you have been busy over the last few weeks. You can get some good deals with Travelodge we used them last year a couple of times - also like Premier Inns, too. Love the new bear:)

Welcome back! Thanks for all your recent comments :)

We attempted to get a travelodge deal for a holiday this year but couldn't get enough cheap nights to make it worth it, especially as there's no self catering - eating out would cost too much and we can't easily get ready prepared food as I'm a fussy veggie and Dave can't eat wheat. Still might try for a weekend away sometime thought as the £19 rooms are a good deal!

Glad you had a nice time in Turkey and I love Billy elephant in your previous post! He's a little similar to an elephant I had when I was little.
