Moving to Madeira

So, I’ve been AWOL for a bit.  But I have the best excuse!  I’ve just started working as a holiday rep with TUI and I now live in Madeira!  I just got here on Monday, but I love it so far.  You guys can expect lots of posts about Madeira in the future, but, to tide you over just now, I’m going to post these lovely photos  🙂

The Weird and Wonderful Outfits of Carnevale

I said I’d make a post about the costumes I saw at the Venice Carnival and look!  These are some of the most amazing outfits I’ve ever seen – and I have to learn to properly make clothes so I can make some for my niece!  (She’s only a year and a half just now.  But she’s going to have heaps of outfits when she’s old enough to enjoy fancy-dress- she doesn’t understand Disney yet, and that day can’t come soon enough! 😀 )


(This one was one of my favourites – so sparkly!) You guys have no idea how much I wanted to buy this mask.  The fact that I already have four made me stop (plus, this mask was a bit more expensive than I expected!  If it’s still there the next time I’m in Venice……..)

I’m back!

I’m still around, don’t worry!  It’s been, what, 3 and a half months since my last post?  My bad… In my defence, I haven’t travelled anywhere, plus I have had some stuff going on in my life (job stuff…ugh…).  But, this is just a quick post to say, I’m alive and I’m going back to Venice on Friday for the Carnival!!  (And then I’m off to Paris at the end of March – exciting stuff!!  🙂  )
