An Adult holiday To Turkey - Week One Of Turkey

I am very lucky, I get to go away once a year on my own whilst Kimmy looks after Tilly. When Tills was a baby it was a sneaky trip to Butlins, But last year my friend asked me to go to Turkey with her, she had been asking me for a couple of years but the thought of it terrified me. So last year we went to Alba Resort in Antalya. We booked again to go this year with her son (Lee), but the resort never opened so we were put in the Alba Queen - a sister hotel next door. We decided that we would just have to make the best of this holiday because it was this hotel or nothing. Now I work hard all year round, If I am not working on the blog then I am at my real life job selling fragrance in Superdrug. I work 7 days a week sometimes and it is a relief to get some time off and just relax.

So we got to Gatwick on the friday night before our flight and spent the night in the Hilton hotel, between 3 of us it was £40 each, not a bad price for the room that we had. We relaxed, repacked bags as my suitcase was 2 kilo's over the limit, so i was stuffing it in my hand luggage,( hoping they wouldnt check it)  then had a good night sleep .... or so we thought! You all know what its like before a big adventure, nobody sleeps and we sat in bed giggling most of the night. That was when we come up with the idea to leave the dead body in the bed ...... it is so easy to do, just pop pillows on the bed in the shape of a body and wrap sheets around it. Then we made a quick exit and left the country.

Dead Body!

We arrived at our hotel the Alba Queen at about 11pm, and checked into our room. Then as soon as we dumped our bags, we were off to the pool bar for a drink. We stayed for a few drinks and then went down the road to the bar that they have called Faulty Friends, we just call it friends bar, and that was the start of my vodka fuelled holiday!

Getting A New Bathroom From Premier Bathrooms

When I had Tilly I was nearly 40 years old, I have older children who are 24, 22 and 21 and then there is Tilly who is 6 years old. When I had her, I didn’t think about how old I was. It didn’t occur to me that I might be the oldest mum in the playground picking her up from school and it certainly didn’t occur to me that people would assume I was her grandma!! Yes people actually thought that I had hidden a pregnancy for one of my teenage girls.

Taking An Adult Break

This time next week I will be lying on the beach in Turkey, Over the past year a lot of people have questioned my choice of going to Turkey, because of terrorism. But the majority of the terrorism is in Ankara or Istanbul and the surrounding areas. I go to Antalya which is 6 hours away by car from Ankara and 8 hours away from Istanbul. Turkey has had it tough this year with tourism and so many people are out of work because people are too worried about travelling there, but me? I will be happy to go to a holiday destination that is not too over crowded.

A Visit To Blog On

A couple of weekends ago, I took my first ever trip to a Blog On blogging conference, They have been going for a couple of years and this was the first one that we had ever been to. The reason we had never been to them was because the conference is help in Manchester and we live in Kent so it was always such a long way to go. But I asked Kim if she wanted to come along and she did, so I thought it was a great way to show her how the blog actually works and little did I know - by the end of the day she had decided she wanted her own blog!

Struggling To Have A Baby? It Happened To Me Too.

A Conversation Between Man and Wife - Are Donor Eggs Right For You?

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is harder. Especially when you’re hoping to start a family and not getting pregnant. Whatever stage of “trying for a baby” you find yourself in, that sinking feeling that accompanies a negative pregnancy test is enough to test any relationship. When the results come back unsuccessful time after time, the frayed nerves, anger and sadness can push your marriage to its limits.

Elisa Wrap Front Metallic Maxi Dress From Pink Clove Review

I had been invited to the MAD blog awards with the TOTS100 blogging network and I had nothing to wear, I was not up for an award but it is one of the best nights in the blogging network! I was going to spend the evening in Kensington Garden Hotel and had absolutely nothing to wear. Luckily I was contacted by Pink Clover who asked me if I would like to review a dress. I am a size 28 and buying clothes is not much fun because companies always use tiny models to sell their clothes and obviously it looks totally different on someone who is larger or a different shape. Pink Clove do not use tiny models, they use proper women to sell their clothes.
