Back in the UK and my new jewellery making obsession!

We arrived back yesterday, very jet lagged and I have a rotten cold and cough, still nothing will dampen my spirits after the most fabulous holiday we had! Plus I took out one suitcase and came back with 3 – the other 2 were full of crafting goodies!!!

I discovered these gorgeous Pandora style beads in Florida and bought loads!! I made my eldest daughter a bracelet in her favourite colours and with some really cute Breast Cancer Awareness spacer beads.



Our Harley!

Russ & I have long dreamed of owning a Harley but in the UK it wouldn’t get used so we have always thought we would have one over here when we become more permanent but Russ couldn’t resist renting one for a couple of days. It’s gorgeous, haven’t been on it yet as we have had a pool day today but am going for a ride later!


My son and his girlfriend arrived!

About 7pm our time last night! So excited to have them with us, they were shattered so after a quick meal at Applebees they crashed and slept like logs. We all watched the last shuttle Endeavour go up this morning, it was so exciting and took me back to that first moon walk launch when I was about 10! They have gone off to the Florida Mall this morning and tomorrow we are going to Universal to the Harry Potter World and I am so excited about that!!


Naples Beach, the pier and wild dolphins!

We drove to Naples yesterday and boy was it worth it! The most beautiful place, a gorgeous white sand beach, beautiful old wooden pier and wild dolphins playing all around – it was glorious. There was a lovely breeze on the beach too so we all got a lovely glow! Luckily we have come over before it gets too humid here, I can’t imagine how unbearable it would be in our summer months. We have been in March, April and May now and they are all great months to visit. It starts to get very humid from June onwards and the risk of storms increases too.
