Our few days away

We've had a lovely few days away, we went to stay in Mr P's Uncle's chalet, it's only two hours up the A12 in Kessingland. If you don't know where that is it's near Great Yarmouth. It's only a small place but we love it there, you can also see the sea out of the kitchen window. We only went for three days and it was just for us to get away. We have all had a busy month.

The first day we got there we just emptied our bags and chilled out. Little Miss P and Mr P had a little walk to the beach and played in the sea, she came back absolutely soaked of course. But they had fun and that's what counts. The first night we watched the film Brother Bear 2 and we decided to get the sofa bed out and make it really cosy. But then Little Miss P decided she wanted to sleep on it for the three nights we were there.

The first full day we went into Wroxham and met up with Mr P's mum and dad, going on a lovely 2 hour boat ride. We did get a little McDs beforehand to keep us warm. I love the little boats mainly because you get to see some lovely houses on the way past. After that we popped back in the car to go for a nice pub lunch in Ranworth where the food is absolutely fantastic. Then we said bye to Mr P's mum and dad and had a few hours to ourselves walking around a lovely conservation area with a cup of tea. When you come to the end of the walk you come across a floating house that you can go in and watch the birds on the lake and look in the gift shop.

The next day we went into Lowestoft to go to the movies and watch Trolls. That was a great film, it was so funny. I have to say my favourite one was the one covered in glitter and he even pooped glitter. We also did a little bit of shopping for a few things and spent the afternoon back by the beach playing in the water to chill out and then watched our next film.

The rest of the time we just chilled out. I had a lovely time and can't wait to go back next year.

Chessington World of Adventures fun

A few weekends ago now we booked a weekend away at Chessington World of Adventures. It was a spur of the moment idea, but I think those ideas work the best. We booked to stay one night in the Safari Hotel over looking at the animals. We have stayed in that hotel before so we know what the rooms are like.

  We didn't tell Little Miss P until the Friday night when we had our bags packed, she was so excited.  So Saturday morning we jumped in the car and off we went, we did stop off to have a Premier Inn breakfast too as for the price of the breakfast you can eat as much as you want. It was a great way to start the day.

We parked up at that hotel and walked straight to the park, no queues to get in so that was fantastic.
And most of the rides only had about 10 to 15 minute waits. The height of Little Miss P means she can go on all the rides now but she didn't want to go on some, I don't blame her especially Rameses Revenge. I don't even like that ride. Her favourite ride was Scorpion Express, it's like a runaway mine train and over the two days I think we must have gone on it about seven times. She did try a few rides that she wasn't keen on and didn't want to go on them again afterwards. But I'm proud of her for giving them a go. We now know that she likes spinning rides and not up and down rides, well big drops anyway.
There was a ride where you go on a little safari, cleverly called Zafari. You get in a truck type thing and it takes you round to see the animals, I absolutely love that ride and it was one of my favourite ones, you could also see our hotel from it. This ride had the biggest queue though.

  After a full day at the park we went back to our hotel. We went into our room and chilled out, watching a bit of telly then looked out the window at all the animals. We got an early night's sleep after popping to the bar for a drink as it was another full day in the park the next day. We got up for breakfast and it was an all you can eat breakfast again. And as we were staying in the hotel we could get into the park half an hour early to go on some of the rides. So we made the most of that.

It was another fun, full day and we also had a voucher for a pizza or pasta self-service restaurant. And I have to say the food was quite nice. We left the park when it shut and got on the road home but absolutely loved our little time away and would definitely go back there and stay in the hotel (and of course enjoy the theme park) all over again.

Business #2

19th August - 19th September

21st August
So I have got some of the Fabric that I have been waiting for for a while. One bit of I got on the 20th August, I always get two lots, one to sell on and one for me to practice my sewing on. I got the Chip and Mrs Pots fabric & Dumbo fabric.
So I put them on eBay then went out for the day and by the time I came back it had already sold, well the Chip and Mrs Pots one has, so I will need to get some more of that Fabric.

24th August

I sold some more Chip and Mrs Pots fabric and a set of Avon Trendy toes that I got for myself but have never used. I over-estimated the postage on some of them so I hope I don't get bad feedback. I have been looking at a few wholesalers that I would like for the website and I have found about five that I really like the look of.

6th September
Got some lovely new fabric in the post that I will be putting on eBay soon. I have also sold some lovely Dumbo Fabric that is very cute.

11th September 
It's been an good weekend for sales, I have sold two lots of Tsum Tsum fabric and I have finally sold the Love Dance Resin. Not sure if I will get any more of the Love Dance Resin. I think I might see what other Resin they have.

16th September
I keep having Shipping Centre try and buy some things off me but I have read so many bad reviews on them so I have to keep emailing them and saying that I will not sell to them,  And it's a certain bit of fabric all the time. I have sold some Nail Gems that I haven't used, only for £1 but it's better than them sitting around the house.

19th September
So it has seemed to slow down as I haven't really had many sales in the last few days and I am still waiting for a few fabric deliveries.

Hello Autumn

Autumn is here and I have to say it's one one my best times of year where you can wear your nice cosy PJs, have the candles on and sit under a blanket with the hubby and Little Miss P watching a film together. And I can't forget the hot coco.

It also means that it's nearly Christmas so that I means I can start Christmas shopping. I have already started but it's the time of year where the shops are getting their Christmas decorations and Christmas gifts in. I really love the decorations in the Disney Store but that's because I love everything Disney (I am a big kid at heart). I have seen people do an Autumn bucket list and I love the idea of that. I would like to work on it with Little Miss P and have a joint one with her, or a family one. That would be great.

The only thing I don't like about Autumn is that the nights get dark very quick and soon we will be walking home from dancing in the dark and I am not a great fan of that.

The only few things that I will miss about the summertime is spending so much time with Little Miss P and the ice cream.

Come back soon as I will be doing my Autumn Bucket list.
