I havent been around much this week due to my parents visiting - they seem to have brought with them the weather from London :( so fun trips with them are limited...

I was lucky to receive some treats...


- my favourite mags with lots of gorgeousness inside...

- a wonderful drawing pad for the computer...
- teabags from the UK supermarkets - so much stronger than Israeli tea :)
- a tripod...
Its so nice to get unexpected presents :)

We are talking about going to london in the summer and sometime during our stay, to leave the girls with my parents and go for a few days to either paris or ireland...hhmmm..im leaning towards ireland...where would you go? :)

oh and Shellys latest drawing...so wonderful!!

    hooray! i can comment at long last!

    nice treats from your folks...so glad that you're enjoying time together...shame about the weather. still a good old strong brew will always help :)

    summer trip sounds wonderful. so difficult to decide a winner...i love paris + ireland so much. i think it would have to be ireland though just because i still find it so beautiful after visiting for 12 years (maybe i'm biased since i fell in love with an irish man!)

    shelly's drawing is fantabulous...those colours...and the tree? wow!

    happy friday julie. hugs xxx

    Oohh, fantastic magazines that I recognise! Let me know how you get on with the computer drawing pad, I have problems with those...
    Yay, you're coming over to the UK! I recommend Dublin, it's a lovely place with friendly people.

    Well deserved goodies. Can't help you with the holiday decision Paris is beautiful but so are parts of Ireland.

    oh dublin... was there for only 24 hours, but we managed to drink as much guiness as possible, got sat in the middle of a group of musicians in lovely pub for 5 hours, went home with 3 of them (who looked a little like convicts...) and they made us breakfast of eggs and potatoes... managed to buy a sweater and get back to the hostel, grab our bags and run to the ferry... god that was a fun day. paris is good too though.
