This was my favourite purchase! gorgeous stripe navy dress with loose fitting t shirt overlay only £22 here it was perfect for a day out in Peurto Banus!
I've got a bit of a thing for navy stripes at the moment and I Loved this cream and Navy striped cardi it goes with all my bright summer vests. You can find it Here
I Picked up this lovely blue t shirt instore its a really lovely soft material. I Can't find it online but I'm sure it's there somewhere it was £12.
This black long waterfall cardigan is really handy and has washed well for £24 , it comes in many colours and i also have the coral.
Grab an embellished vest , really cute. Here , think I need another!
Even harry has bagged a new shirt!Here
I have picked up a few more bits I'll pop them on soon. Thanks for looking .
Yes can you believe it bank holiday in May this year was sunny,
This is a picture of Darren , Owen, Harry and his friend on The Rage
The rage is the main reason we went , Harry is 9 now and said that all of his friends had been on The Rage, he was just tall enough for a blue wrist band which is 1.2 metres so could Infact go on every ride at adventure island. Which is brilliant for smaller dare devils he hates watching the others have fun!
When we arrived at The Rage which has a vertical drop of---- Harry cried his eyes out ! He was terrified all of his friends had done it and couldn't believe how big it was!
After watching big brother and daddy ride he soon decided he did not want to miss out, this is his face after riding. He then went on another 6 times!
For those that don't know Adventure island is a free entry theme park where you can pay for rides by tickets or by a wrist band on the day which let's you rides all of the attractions.
We got there just before it opened and queued for tickets which were £25 for a blue wristband , for a green wristband £20 and for a red wristband £15.
We could of purchased them online and saved £4 on a blue wrist band which we have done before but the visit was a bit last minute so we didn't this time.
We spent the day on all of the big rides had great fun
We popped out to Sands restaurant which part of the group for lunch and sat overlooking the sea. It was a bit more expensive but the food was lovely they also had a live singer which was a nice touch.
There are lots of places to eat inside Jungle Jive cafe , fish and chip shops and plenty of candy floss stops, but we fancied something more relaxing.
You can a cheaper deal for the jungle jive cafe if you book online too.
We spent some more time inside the park after lunch to make the most of out of wristbands but it was getting a bit busier so short queues but nothing much more than 10-15 mins.
We just had to grab some hot sugered donuts on the way home the best!
So a few tips, get there early to avoid the main rush and park a bit closer.
Pay and display Parking is available all down the promenade and if you pay with your mobile phone you get a nice little reminder when it's about to run out.
Book your tickets online they are cheaper.
You don't need a wristband for just walking around the park and if your child is under 1.2 metres an adult rides for free! So that's all red and green rides.
If you want to eat in the outside sands restaurant ( near the entrance ) book before you go in although you can't book to sit outside it's first come first served.
If you live local buy an annual pass at £75 , this is something I'm hoping to do with the boys soon, we live quite local so we will be able to pop along for the morning or evening grab a bite to eat and let the boys ride a few coasters. How cool is that ?
Watch this space we will be back!

Now even in Spain I can't resist knocking up some yorkshires and it's so simple.
My Popovers sometimes look a little different depending on the eggs and flour, I find they don't rise as much in France but think that's my oven not bieng hot enough. They worked a treat here.
So to make these in a foolproof easy way it's equal measures of eggs, flour and milk so you can't forget . For 12 nice full yorkys I use 3 eggs and so for 8 I use 2.
I've have even used one egg before just because I wanted a Yorkshire with my dinner and this does about 4.
So break your eggs and use the exact same amount of plain flour and milk in a glass. I normally use one glass and make a note of how high the eggs come up.
Give them a whisk add some salt and pepper and bobs your uncle!
Next bit is trickier. Make sure your oven is set to 180c . Place a small amount of lard or oil (lard works best) in to each bun tin and heat for a least 20mins so it's really sizzling hot.
Making sure your dinner is sort of ready as you must not open the oven whilst your Yorkshires are in there pour some batter in each bun of hot liquid. Pop in the oven for 20- 25mins depending on how brown you like them .
So main points are,
Very hot fat!
Do not open oven door!
The best bit is eating them after with jam or golden syrup! Just like pancakes! They are delicious!

I also like to pair up there clothes so they have the same ie two navy t shirts and two grey. I always used to like seeing them in matching clothes but think Owen is getting a little old for this now. But matching colours makes for nice photos .

Its got a lovely wood burner in the living room which comes in handy as it can be quite chilly in the evenings out of season.
