Back From Vegas!!!

Helicopter view of the Bellagio Hotel where we stayed
In the Ballagio Casino
On top of the Grand Canyon
The Strip at Night

OMG, what a fantastic holiday. Las Vegas was one of the best holidays I've ever had. Although I love sitting in the beach and Mauritius was fantastic, Vegas was non stop and I would love to go back. Our flight was cancelled and we enjoyed the extended stay (although they were on about transferring us to LA for a flight), but have done over 20,000 air miles in a month and am totally jet lagged. I'm going to bed at silly hours and sleeping threw the day. We went on a helicopter threw the Grand Canyon and had a Champagne Lunch, saw a Cirque De Soleil (Beatles) Show and hubby and BIL went on Stratosphere Roller Coaster on top of the hotel. Lost count hoe many machines I went on but all fun. All in all a fabulous time and hope to go back some day.
Tomorrow is our nans funeral and we are going away overnight so I wont be around till the weekend. I cant wait to get back to my crafting. Its been a pretty actioned packed few weeks for us and worth every penny, but back to reality and the miserable british weather.
Will be nice to be in a normal routine again and from next week everything will be back to normal.
For now I will say goodbye and will be back to blogging and commenting next week.
Thanks for stopping by
Hope everyone is well.

LOTV DT -Things With Wings


Sorry for my long absence. I've been a lousy blogger and apologise to the DT's for being so quiet. This has been preposted as I'm flying out to Las Vegas today for a week. Will be visiting the Grand Canyon and a lot of Casino's so will not be around again for another week. Today we have a new challenge for you over at the LOTV Challenge blog. The theme this week is "Things with Wings". This weeks sponsor is "The Ribbon Girl". I have used one of the new releases called Garden of Wishes and coloured with Copics, dusting with Glamour Dust and added lots dots with a Rose coloured Viva Pearl Pen.
We had a brilliant holiday in Mauritius followed by the death of our grandmother. My mojo is not up to much. I've had a lot on my mind and have not stopped with one thing or another since we returned. I'd like to thankyou for all the lovely comments and thanks for being so caring, it means a lot.

So today being Thursday we will be spending 10 hours flying to Las Vegas and booking in at the Bellagio. A luxury suite will be awaiting us. The kids are at home with their nan so a few days to relax, have fun and spend, spend, spend.
Thanks for visiting my blog today, and see you in a week or so where hopefully I will feel refreshed, things will get back to normal and I will be my usual crafty self!

Few Holiday Snaps and Sad News.....

Hey everyone, so nice to be back in blogland. I hope you all had a fantastic christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year.
We had an amazing time in Mauritius. I jut love going back there and the weather was again hot, hot, hot. Swan with Dolphins and went to a deserted island. No disasters and have come home with a lovely tan. So I've posted a few piccies, with over 600 it was hard to narrow down, so I may post a few better ones at some stage.
Also had some very sad news yesterday. My husbands Grandmother passed away yesterday afternoon. Its very upsetting and am just coming to terms with the news. She was 93 and enjoyed life as much as she could. Were off to Las Vegas next week and then the funeral when we get back so although I may do a bit of hopping I hope you understand I'm really not up to crafting right now. Its not been the best start to the new year and Daniel had a bad day again at school yesterday but hopefully a few days away without the children and the funeral behind us we can start afresh and I hope to be back in full craft mode after all this.
So I'll stop babbling and hope to catch up with some of your blogs.
Here are a few piccies and I really hate having my photo taken, not photogenic at all!
