10 sleeps until.....

 It's only 10 days until dots and spots is taking a little break and going on our first trip abroad for 13 years. 

We decided back in September last year that we all deserved a treat, so with the extra money from our 'big order', we decided to book a holiday. The children have never flown and we gave up our annual 2 weeks in Greece years ago, when we had the children. So it was new passports all round and it's been something to look forward to over the past 8 months.

 We decided on a week to see how the children coped with the heat and went for Majorca as we could fly out of Exeter and it was a relatively short flight. So it is coming around quite quickly and the excitement is building. Mum and Dad are making use of our house whilst we are away, so can water the garden if the sunny spell lasts.

On a more practical note, it does mean that our orders will not be sent out as speedily as normal. Any orders placed after 
Wednesday 30th of May will not be dispatched until Wednesday 13th June That gives me all Thursday to get everything packed and out with the couriers/ post on the Friday before we fly out on the Saturday.

So anyone wanting Father's Day gifts or any stockists needing top up orders do get them to us sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

Oh how lovely! We went to Majorca last year from Exeter and had a lovely time. The weather was gorgeous, the hotel brilliant; although the food was a little strange! We went to Puerto de Pollensa (top right) and found a lovely beach at Formentor, which was a very scary bus ride away. Hope you have a smashing time and don't drink the water from the taps!

Ellouise88 we are going to the same place - Puerto Pollensa up in the top corner of the island - looks lovely - can't wait! Will jot down the name of the beach you mentioned

You will love Majorca it is beautifull. We have been a few times but I agree with Ellouise Formentor is a fab beach.

Think I just spied the parcel that arrived at my door this morning in your photo! I love the star tape and christmas tape (early planning - not like me!) and thank you cards i ordered - thank you very much! Looking forward to leafing through the catalogue tonight and planning my next purchases! Enjoy your holiday!

The bus ride to Formentor will scare you witless but remember to keep your camera (and sick bag) ready because there are some beautiful views on the way; it really is worth it. The Pine Walk in Puerto Pollensa is also gorgeous and a lovely place to sit and look out across the water. Oh I wish we were going back this year! You lucky things!
