The kids first holiday abroad!

We've just returned from our 2nd trip this year to Puerto Pollensa.  God!  Isn't the weather pants back here!

The kids and ourselves had the most fantastic time and the weather out there in Majorca was superb.  Think the hottest day was probably Sunday which was 34c and unfortunately we chose that day to trek around Alcudia and Pollenca (Old Town)!  Probably not the wisest thing to be doing in those conditions but we enjoyed it all the same.  Had a slight detour as we left Alcudia - we departed the town in the wrong direction and started on a drive along the coast.  Unfortunately though the road then started to climb and wind up into the mountains.  I was having kittens but said "ooh just keep going we'll get to a turning eventually!" hmmmmmm.  It didn't quite turn out that way as when we'd reached almost the highest point we found that it was a dead end!  We had to come all the way back down the winding roads but now on the outside nearest the steep drop!  I closed my eyes for most of it and if it hadn't been such a long way I'd have quite cheerfully got out and walked!  The kids thought this was all highly amusing, especially the thought of a puddle on my seat at the end of the journey

We spent most of our holiday on the beach and even though it was June it wasn't crowded at all.  We all went in the sea - yes, including me! Can you believe it???!  It's only taken me 31 years but at last I've been in the sea to swim.  I have the photo's to prove it!

We ate out loads and went back to Bony's to visit Jose and Pablo.  The kids thought they were both great and couldn't wait to return each time to collect more sweets from them!

We upgraded to a larger apartment this time and it was great.  Ground floor right next to the pool.  It had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and even a dishwasher and washing machine.  There was also a rather large and unwanted spider on the 1st day of our holiday that paul removed once and upon it's return was quite swiftly flushed down the toilet!  I know you shouldn't but I really do hate the blighters.

I felt much easier on the plane this time and the kids were fine too.  'A' had some pain in her ears upon landing in Majorca which caused a few tears but neither of us felt much at all on our return.  Sam actually said, that the plane was one of the best parts of the holiday.

We really can't wait to go back.  We just need to decide now whether it's Majorca or somewhere new next year.  The way the weather is here at the moment we might move there permanently
