Well, Hello again Everyone!
Sorry not posted until now but after returning from holiday last wednesday - it has been non stop and I am only able to catch up with you all again today as Ben is not very well and i am at home with him today! Nothing major, just some kind of tummy upset - but he is fast asleep at the moment (I always think sleep is one of the best medicines!) so I thought I would catch up with my Blog!
Turkey was brilliant! We stayed in Antalya at a fab hotel called Wow Topkapi!! It was amazing as it had 5 pools and a water park on the side - which Ben loved! He is not afraid of the water at all - so we spent every day in the pools jumping in and Ben dunking his Daddy! Such fun!
Ben also made a couple of friends so it was great that he had a couple of play mates, especially at night - we could sit and watch him run around whilst sat with a drink - Heaven!
The weather was between 90 and 100 degrees all of the 10 days there so it was hot but there was a great breeze all the time and plenty of icecream to keep us cool!!
Here are a few photos:
Ah well, summer clothes now washed and packed into the back of the wardrobe - counting down until next September/October when we can afford to go away again!! We are allready looking at brochures trying to decide where to go - we always like to book the year before we go so it gives us plenty of time to save up!!
Well, we got back last Wednesday and then I was straight back into work on the Friday as I had shows to prep and work through for the following Tuesday! A full on 3 hours of shows - it was an amazing show and it seemed to go by so quickly - I was working with the lovely Simon Biagi which was great as we always have such fun too!!
Straight after the show I was on the road home - after a quick stop off at KFC for some tea as I hadn't eaten since 9am!! Arrived home at 10pm - where Ben was fast and hard asleep in bed and my fab hubby and run me a bath ready to get in and soak away the tired muscles!! What an amazing hubby I have!
Since then I have been back at work catching up - including dealing with an replying to over 200 emails! It sometimes still amazes me how much work there is to do in this industry - from speaking with suppliers; putting together kits; sourcing new suppliers; putting together samples; looking at new techniques; teaching workshops and liasing with qvc almost daily about new shows; timetables and products!!!
Well, no rest for the wicked as they say........................ TSV launches Monday night - will another full day of crafting on Tuesday and then me and Dawn and filming promo's all day on Wednesday at QVC so another full on few days - I'll arrive back home on wednesday night and then I have no more travelling away for a while so I am going to make the most of it - my list is allready prepared of jobs I want to get done at home including painting and finally getting my craft room completely organised and ready to work in! FIngers crossed I can get it all done - Want my house all sorted for Christmas (hopefully!!
Ah well, best get on, want to get my jobs done whilst Ben is asleep!
Have a great day everyone and see you all Monday night for the TSV launch!!
