Back to Reality

We are finally back home to reality after spending 10  nights in Bali for our nieces wedding, & the hardest part of coming home was leaving the 30degree days to arrive home to a freezing 7 degrees  at 11am yesterday, not funny !!!!!!!!

We had a lovely time in Bali, The wedding was held at the Grand Hyatt in Nusa Dua & was just beautiful unfortunately the reception got rained out just as we were finishing the main meal, we then had to wait in a downstairs restaurant whilst they prepared a function room for us, the party continued with lots of dancing & singing & was still going strong when we left at 1am, we only left then because we had to check out of our hotel at 11am. Can you believe it hadn't rained or even looked like rain in the 8 days we had already spent there.

We didn't venture far from our resort the Novotel Nusa Dua, although we spent the first full day in Kuta at the shops & markets, that was a real eye opener. Emily was absolutely petrified at the markets as the vendors really targeted her & would grab at her to look at something or try to get her into their stall for a girl who's favourite pastime is shopping she never wanted to go again she even stayed in the apartment for the morning when Robert James & I went to the markets at the front gates to Nusa Dua. We also spent another day at the Waterbom water park with cousins & another family we met at our resort.

For some reason all the photos I took look quite grainy, so I have only a few to share with you & the best photo I have of the bride & groom is one I have cropped another couple out of.

The gorgeous couple

 One of the many gorgeous flowers at the resort.

Wow its now 11.30pm & I better hit the sack, the kids are back to school tomorrow & i am sure they will need a little prodding in the morning to get ready by 7.30am.

I hope to get back some time this week with some cards although I am not feeling the MOJO lol!!!!

Happy Stamping
