A-ga-doo doo doo!

Just after posting my entry in the Bloggers Quilt Festival, hubby suggested we go away for the weekend.  I decided it best not to mention the backlog of festival posts I would have to read on getting back, ;-) packed a few things and after picking up Zaki from pre-school we headed south to Agadir.

Agadir was devestated by an earthquake in 1960 and typical of that era the town was rebuilt with little or no personality and quite a lot of concrete.  However, living in a place with bags of personality it mattered not.  It had sun, swaying palm trees and a swimming pool and we got to spend time together as a family. We had a great time.

*my husband always looks ridiculously grumpy in photos.  Actually he's not grumpy at all but hates having his photo taken with a vengeance.

We got back yesterday and I'm slowly catching up with my blog reading - the festival is as good as ever and it's lovely discovering some new blogs and getting a little inspiration overload.

Here's a little something for those of you who need an instant holiday in their lives or are too young to appreciate the music of Black Lace *shudder* Watch and learn my friends.

Well how lovely! And looking at that one photo, with the pool, I'd say the place has lots of personality but what do I know?? A family getaway is all that matters right?

We spent one day in Agadir in March.
We had rather low expectations but had a most comfortable hotel and an outstanding meal at a restaurant that reminded me a lot of the old Bagatelle.
Glad you had fun!

I did not click 'play', I have that ingrained in my psyche already!
I know your husband's photo pain, but then I really am grumpy too!

Glad you had such a good time, chose not to re-live the music.
Interestingly, I have not been able to comment recently having accessed your blog thro Bloglovin, yours & Dianne's.
Just tried going into your blog via my sidebar instead and hey presto, no problem. Wonder if others are having similar probs.
Love your BQF entry,it could be called "Life's Rich Pattern"!!x
