Project 365 2014 – Week 37

It has been the most amazing week!

Back in June I entered a competition at Britmums to win a holiday with Mark Warner, and this was the week 11 other bloggers and I got to fly out to their flagship resort, Levante in Rhodes to sample everything they have to offer.

I had been a little worried that I may have had to cancel as Sebastian took so long to get over his bug, but he finally beat it on Sunday.  Hubby took a couple of days off work to look after the other kids to enable me to go and it was so good I want to take all the kids back for a holiday.

I cannot wait to tell you all about it, we went sailing, kayaking and even for a spin on an inflatable sofa, but for now here are some of my favourite pictures:
