And the Halloween Giveaway is...................

Sarah of Funky Fairy who left me this spooky message

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men got up to fight,
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other!!

Thanks to all who entered
for all the spooky messages they were fab.
I got my best friend to give me a number between 1 & 14 and lucky number 7 was Sarah.
Your goodies will be winging their way to you tomorrow.
I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween

Home Sweet Home

I can't believe that I've been home 2 weeks and haven't told you about New York!
Firstly sorry for the rubbishness, I have had the worst jet lag I have ever had & switching on my laptop for longer that 5 minutes after a day in the office in front of a screen of Excel was just not possible.
Im finally feeling a bit more normal and think it's time to tell you about my trip.
Firstly a big thank you for all the suggestions of places to go and things to see & do, they were fab.
Day 1
So after a ridiculously early start, and a long flight we were finally in New York.
The first evening we went for a wonder about, our hotel was on 35th St so Times Square was right around the corner as was Macy's!!

Day 2
It was a bit gray but dry so off we went on mission to see NY, we walked all the way from our hotel by the Empire State Building through, Greenwich Village,

where I got a pretzel.
Pumpkins were for sale every where.
Little Italy,

China Town, Tribeca,

to Ground Zero.
Then trough Battery Park along the East River to see the Statue of Liberty.
Then all the way back to the hotel via some Shops! and a Pizza place where I had my first slice of NY pizza. I have to say my feet were killing me even though I wore trainers!
Total of 9 miles!
Day 3 
We went on a trip to Woodbury Common Shopping Village, we were picked up at the hotel at 8am, an early start but worth it. A scenic drive in a mini van and an hour later we were shopping.
We got lots of goodies, Yankee Candle was one of my favourite stores along with Converse, along with many more along the way.
We caught the bus back  to the city & went for the most amazing dinner at Hillstone, the Ribs were the best I have ever eaten.
Then I have to say it was cocktail time, time for a Cosmopolitan.
Day 4
So we had done some shopping, and walking, so now time for some Dinosaurs!
We decided to go to the Natural History Museum.
Then for a long walk through Central Park & Lunch in a Dinner on Broadway.
Shopping, Shopping, Shopping................
The biggest salad I have ever eaten & a raspberry mojito for Dinner.

Followed by  reese's peanut butter cup baskins robins ice cream.
We went up the Empire State Building that night which was amazing, the view of NY at night was beautiful.

Day 5
Home Time, Bit more shopping & walking then off to the airport to come home.

So Home now and I'm off on a Sewing Project Workshop today with a company called BROC.

Sorry I've been away soo long.
PS Sorry there aren't more photos, blogger will only let me upload 1 at a time, any top tips most welcome! xxx
