My Best Post of The Week >> Add yours


Have you ever come so close to wanting something it’s almost within reach?

Have you ever desired something with your entire heart, soul and being?

That is where I am now and today I am going to unashamedly ask for your help.

I entered a competition with the Royal Caribbean, they were looking for a Royal Family 2014, this family would enjoy a year of appointments with them including a Caribbean cruise in February and to witness the launch of their new ship Quantum of the Seas in November 2014.

Doesn’t that sound like a dream come true?

I entered and managed to reach the final three families, yipeeee. Now each family have a video up on their Facebook page. Bottom line – we need votes to win it’s as simple as that so please can you log in to your Facebook account and vote for the Weekes family in the Royal Caribbean competition. Thanks.

On to other news …

Last weekend we went down to the beach and on a conker hunt, this weekend we’re off to a Bonfire party and making the most of precious family time whilst I have my eldest daughter and her daughter here with me from Italy. More excitingly are the bits they brought over in their suitcases for me; a massive chunk of grana cheese, a bottle of Franz Haas Pinot Nero wine and a huge piece of speck so watch out for some really cool recipes coming up on Mari’s World.

I am sure I heard my two practising their first song last night for their nativity, it’s scary to think it’s less than 50 days away and yes, I have started my christmas shopping…

One last mention, I’m really happy to see that Kate Takes 5 is back with her super Listography and to kick off the season she has chosen – Top 5 Life Lessons inspired by an article that talks about people confessing their top 5 regrets as their days on this planet draw to an end. Be inspired and have a read of the blogs that have linked up or better still join us and let us know your top 5 life lessons.
