Back from vacay at the W Fort Lauderdale

I can't believe I've been away from my precious Blog for so long! We've been back from our vacation a week now. All washing, ironing & housework is pretty much up to date and hubby is well back into the swing of things at work!

 I was going to do a long post all about our vacation, where we ate, shopped, sunbathed, etc etc, but I thought that it would come across a tad boring and turn into one of those boring family slide shows that no one really wants to hear about! 

I will say though that we had an absolutely fantastic time in Fort Lauderdale and are already looking forward to our next trip back there!

I do have to let you all know about the fab hotel we stayed in. 

We stayed at the W Hotel on Fort Lauderdale Beach and we had an amazing time there. We had a very long journey to Miami from Dubai, 7 hour flight to LHR, 5 hour wait, 8 hour flight on to Miami and dare I say it, in economy! (I so miss our business class staff travel that we used to get from my husbands previous employers, but hey it wasn't all bad, nothing a few glasses of vino can't handle!) 

When we got to the hotel we were knackered! We had been up for, I can't even remember how many hours, but you can imagine. We had the most warmest welcome at the W when we arrived. Cristina on reception was fantastic and checked us in so quickly and was so friendly and helpful. I even got some great little gifts from the hotel as I follow them on Twitter, a USB, some cool little cloths for cleaning the iPhone/PC screens and a little joystick (I think anyway!). 

They gave us a beautiful room on the corner, which had views of the sea one way and the waterways the other. Simply stunning. On our last night we chatted to Stephanie on reception who again was lovely and helpful, along with all the staff during our stay. A big thank you to the W Hotel, you made our vacation amazing!

If you're ever in Fort Lauderdale you must take a look,
I am sure you will not be disappointed!

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Spending ban - Ideas to cutting back...

- this post contains affiliate links - You may have noticed a couple of my tweets recently that I am shamefully on a 'Spending Ban'. Now, this is something both Mark and I have come to agreement on, as looking at our recent credit card statements we I, have been a little too fluid with the spends lately. So, we are putting a little 'ban' on for a few weeks! Seriously do not know how I am going to cope!! Haha... Only joking! But it did get me to thinking though about where to cut back on everyday things and where each of us can save here and there. Especially at the moment where there's hardly any interest on savings and things do seem to be getting more and more expensive! So here's a bit of random list! Nothing in any particular order, just little ideas where we can all cut back in our every day lives! ********** * First of all - I know I said no particular order, but this ones a definite first and then it
