BACK FROM LANZAROTE..missing the sunshine already

Phil, Alison and Dave, our first full day there

Our last meal before returning
The view from our room one morning...
all the rooms over look the pool and the beach
The reception overlooked the bar where all the evening entertainment went on a green oasis...
we were the other end of the hotel this time but the view was still great..
and I won't bore you with any more holiday snaps but we had another fantastic holiday with our best friends 
Dave and Alison...thanks for making the holiday great, we are now planning the next one,
 may be in March 2013...can't wait xx

Only managed a little crochet while away
a second 4 square block on the soft and light weight what ever it turns into and the beginnings of another cushion in some wool I bought there, I was having withdrawal symptoms, missing my moss stitch blanket that I started before going away. So I just had to buy some yarn and start a moss stitch cushion.
not that happy with it but it got me over the moss stitch craving lol
Fabulous holiday but good to be back too, and I arrived home to a complete pdf copy of my book in full colour, I have done this morning...looking colourful and feeling real now...looking great.

Sorry I can't show you any of it but for those that have asked, GMC are hoping to have it published by MAY 2013, any update on that and I will let you know
next stage will be with the printers and the first proofs.

Catch you tomorrow with another little experiment 
Missing the sunshine already.
I bought a few lovely things including the wrap and the necklace I have on in the picture.

Hugs to all xx

    1. Hi Jo,
      Sorry won't make it, the friends we went on hols with are over on Saturday a thank you meal for Phil doing all the driving while we were away.
