I’m not exactly a Halloween fanatic, but I do love pumpkin carving. There’s something very satisfying about getting down, dirty, and carving shapes into a big squash. Introducing my Halloween How To – Disney Pumpkin Carving!
In mid-September, Alex and I flew off to Alicante for a week of much needed rest and recuperation. I hadn’t had a week off since January, so without realising it, I had been driving myself, physically and mentally, into the ground. Alex had just finished his Masters and also needed to get away from it all.
I have only ever known about Alicante as the airport, after spending so many of my summers flying in then driving down to Torreveija. We had a fantastic week of exploring a new city and seeing what Alicante had to offer.
Last Sunday, I went from Hull to Stoke-on-Trent with two lovely ladies to go for afternoon tea and to paint our own pottery at the Emma Bridgewater Factory.
I know, it’s a long way to go for pottery… but when the pottery is that nice, it wasn’t too strenuous a journey!
