We're Home!

We've had a lovely week away but it was nice to get home this afternoon.  I have to confess I've missed having internet access for the last week even though it was nice to have a break from it all!  We were really unlucky with the weather - let me tell you spending your days sitting by a lake in the middle of nowhere may be fun when the sun is shining but when you spend the whole week with nothing but rain, snow & hail stones you get cold very quickly!
Ant enjoyed himself fishing but I didn't get as much reading done as I expected to - it's hard to hold a book when you can't feel your fingers LOL.  I did read 5 books though & will get reviews posted over the next few days:
  1. Wolf Signs - Vivian Arend
  2. Vampirates: Tide of Terror - Justin Somper
  3. Sex, Lies and Vampires - Katie MacAlister
  4. Need - Carrie Jones
  5. Passion Unleashed - Larissa Ione
We had a lovely villa with a really comfy four poster bed & I loved the wirlpool bath which was great to warm up in when we got home.  We also got to make friends with the donkeys who lived in the field just outside our door - they were very friendly!
As you know Thursday was my birthday so we spent the day in Torquay.  I had fun spending money in the bookshops & then got my new tattoo done.  I'm really pleased with how well it turned out - this picture was taken just after it had been finished so I'll try to get a better one in a few days when it has had time to heal.
What do you think?  Thanks for all the comments and birthday wishes while we were away.  I'll be returning everyone's visits but I think it's going to take a few days to catch up with everyone's comments and blog posts :o)  Hope you're all having a lovely Easter!


  1. Helloooo! :) Your tattoo is awesome, I love it! So cool! Sorry you the weather wasn't on your side for your holiday!

  2. Hi Jo :o) I'm so pleased with how the tat came out! Still feeling a little sore but I'm sure it will be fine in a couple of days. It was a shame about the weather but it was still good to have a break

    you know i had the same problem with my reading lol...i read three books on the first day...then am still on the fourth one now lol...

  4. Thanks Amanda - I'm glad you like it :o) Ant was pleased with his fish LOL. He caught quite a few but that was the biggest one.

    I probably read less than I usually would at home but it was nice to have a break & spend some time together just me & Ant :o) Hope you had a great time!
