A lack of posts from me this week as I’m busy sunning myself in Cyprus. I was hoping to blog more whilst I was out here but super slow Internet and google, blogger, flickr and hotmail all requiring verification texts and things just aren’t working.
After arriving super late on Sunday night we grabbed a quick pint and went off to bed!
On Monday I woke up put on the bikini and slapped on some sun lotion from my mum. Immediately after the legs sting and I’ve now got a nasty rash still covering them. Thankfully I packed some la roche posay anthelios xl which seems to be ok. Monday really wasnt my day. Let’s blame a lack of sleep. After deciding to ignore advice on wearing flip flops to the bar as the stones were hot, I thought walking along the water edge would be the best thing so my feet didn’t burn. For a clumsy person not a great idea. Que me taking a rather dramatic fall into the pool and smashing my leg against the side. At this point I’m beautiful covered in a rash with massive bruises developing to add to it I got burnt.
After dinner we all went for some drinks. My oldest brother was staying with us this night (night before the wedding) so when he put his girls to bed he was free. It was lush to drink was my brother’s and dad. We enjoyed a fair few and got asked to keep the noise down ooops.
Tuesday arrived along with the big day and the reason we were out her. We all woke up with slightly fuzzy heads! My brother seemed reasonably relaxed although he did start to pace. After picking up his daughter’s the beautifying starts. It was a hectic two hours. My hair and make up, my mum’s make up and my little niece’s hair and nails. My dress luckily covered the giant bruise.
Seeing my big brother get married after 14 years with his partner was amazing. I did cry as she walked down the aisle. It was an amazing day lot’s of champagne, cake and amazing food.
Their amazing view from the wedding venue
Yesterday was a chill out day and my dads father’s day surprise. We took him parasailing. The rest of us spent the hour chilling in the sea. I seem to have attracted my sister in laws niece and nephew and every time we see them they now want me. I do love little one’s but days spent with them remind me I love giving them back!
My oldest brother (much to my mum’s worry and dad’s dislike, he walked away as he couldn’t watch!) took me cliff jumping for the first time. It was amazing!!! I loved the rush. It was only about 12ft though so he’s scouted out higher for us today! I’m such an adrenaline junkie but it was scary jumping and having to push yourself forward so you don’t hit rocks. Bring on the higher jumps!
Another evening with great food and pina coladas. We’ve not done a family holiday abroad in probably over 10 years so it’s been really great to spend so much time with everyone. No arguments so far.
This evening me and dad are going wine tasting before some of us head into ayia napa for an amazing fish meze around the harbour.
The next few days for me include a pirate ship, water world and beauty treatments.
So far the holiday has been amazing. I already don’t want to leave.
