Nice for the night - part 2

After a little relax back in our room we headed out for a bite to eat.

Too be honest we were still slightly full from our pizza earlier and starting to feel sleepy from the early start and lunch time beer!

getting old *insert laughing emoji* I remember the days when a lunchtime beer was just the beginning, haha

We headed back along the Promenade des Anglais and not too far along we stopped at the restaurant Les Jardins Du Capitole.

Tempted by the set menu we sat down and were eager to get started!

Mark started with the snails and I had the french onion soup. 

Apparently the snails were really good! "I'll take your word for it babe!"

The soup was delicious!! Totally scrummy with a very generous sized, cheese crust on the top.

Stuffed after our starters, we still managed to demolish our main of  Sirloin steak and french fries.

Finishing off with a very chocolaty chocolate mousse each, we literally couldn't move! 

Two very stuffed and happy bellies, we then practically rolled ourselves back to the hotel!

Not wanting the night to end just yet, we decided to have a nose around the hotels gardens.

Chairs and plant pots all lit up and making the place feel all enchanting and magical! My iPhone just doesn't do it justice!

Apologies for the graininess! 

The next morning we woke up quite early and were pretty much the first at breakfast,

And what a spread!

Bacon, sausages, eggs, croissants, pastries, cakes, cereals, cheeses, cold meats, tea, coffees, juices, the lot!

Again, we were stuffed!

There seems to be a theme to this trip, haha!

We had a couple of hours to kill before heading to the airport - me for my flight back to the UK and Mark to have some meetings.

Instead of just hanging around the room we decided to go out and get some fresh air. One last stroll along the Promenade des Anglais and a look at the beach.

Annoyingly I had left my camera in the safe! #bloggerfail but hopefully my phone managed to get some OK snaps! 

Before we knew it, it was time to pack our final bits and check out of the hotel.

Off to the airport we went.

I said goodbye to Mark and headed my way through the busy security area and onto the lounge.

Our stay in Nice was very short, but it was sweet.

Even though I was in complete awe of the historic french buildings and loved tasting real french onion soup, I was a little disappointed that Nice wasn't as 'glamorous' as what I thought it would be.

It also seemed a little run down and tired. Maybe it was the time of year, I'm not sure.

We found Nice fairly pricey too, but I guess that goes for any city around the world and I'm just used to the extremely purse friendly Spanish prices at the mo!

All in all though I thoroughly enjoyed my little trip.

Au revoir mon ami

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
