I’m back from Florida

Sorry for the extended blogging break – I’ve been too busy enjoying myself on holiday in Florida! We packed a lot in to our time there – visiting the theme parks, enjoying the wildlife and cooling down in the water parks. My highlight of the trip was snorkelling with manatees in Crystal River, but the boys preferred stroking the dolphins at Discovery Cove. We all agreed that the Harry Potter sections of Universal stood out above all the other theme parks and I especially recommend the new ‘Escape from Gringotts’ ride in Hogsmead.


Another highlight of the trip was meeting Sandy. We started our blogs within weeks of each other, way back in 2008, and have been blogging friends ever since. It was great to finally meet her in person.


I didn’t read much on holiday, but The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings is the perfect book to read in Florida and I’ll tell you all about how fantastic it is soon.

I hope you’ve had a wonderful August!

I swear you did a Florida vacation right! The average visitor doesn’t airboat, snorkel with manatees or canoe with alligators. I’m so glad to have been able to spend time with you as well!

Tamsin, I wasn’t planning to do a Rawlings review. Did you want to know about the books or the theme park? Let me know and I’ll tell you everything you’re interested in.
