holidays.

I spent the weekend before last in Leeds for my friends Birthday!! The Victoria Quarter is a place that will always be close to my heart, as I used to work in there.... it is always so enchanting at Christmas-time. How amazing is the mirror ball tree?! The German Markets were also lots of fun but sooooo busy it was insane, I lost my friends temporarily, only to find them riding the horses on the carousel... also sampled a chocolate coated marshmallow thing, and some hot apple juice. DELICIOUS. Katie.xx


Other news....



So the last holiday in September had such a great effect on my health, I decided to book to go away again. I have a permanent battle of holiday or clothes?..am completely crazy about both, and forever seeking the perfect balance.
Earlier this week I set off for a stay in Taba, Egypt in the Sinai desert, which is realllllly close to Jordan). Although I have never been before, I have heard that where we are staying is pretty fabulous, complete with the most awesome snorkelling. So that's me off for a week of sun, swimming and snorkelling.
 I am a bit of a geek, so have been reading about the fish I might expect to see there- lionfish, parrot fish, snowflake moray eels (eeek)  Picasso fish found at the 'picasso' reef, an underwater mountain.. which sounds amazing, so wish me luck. There will be photos on my return, but I will be leaving you with posts on sunday, monday, wednesday so keep checking back...

  5. I went to Egypt when I was 16 and loved it! Have you ever been before? Really hope you have a good time anyway and you feel better, if you get the chance you really should go scuba diving around the reefs.

    And yes morey eels are scary but do tend to leave you alone.
