Our trip to Morocco

800

Colin and Alison KeenanSo we've officially moved into British Summertime, which is probably why we had a frost so fierce it predictably burned all my magnolia blossom! Still, at least it had been in full bloom and all its glory for my birthday, and I'm really glad I'd shared it with you by way of the photos in last week's blog :)

Thanks as always for your delightful comments and for bringing me up to speed with all that's been happening. Of course those of you who read this blog regularly will know that Colin and I have had a week away in Morocco, which was a truly restful break. We had originally planned to return to the same hotel, but decided at the last moment to stay a little further down the coast.


Alison and Colin in a restaurantAgadir is right on the Atlantic, with a fabulous expanse of soft sand and crashing waves. However, it can be pretty chilly because of the wind off the Atlantic, so we were very grateful to have a lot more sunshine than last year, which, when out of the wind, was very warm indeed. Last year we didn't venture out of the hotel complex, but decided that this visit we should find go exploring, and so we headed off to an enormous Souk – a covered market – that sells everything from furniture, fashion and food and spices to jewellery, china, natural remedies and reptiles!

Spices at the SoukIf you've ever been to the exhibition centre at Olympia, the size of this walled and covered market was pretty similar and is the main shopping centre for the Berber people who live in Agadir rather than a tourist haunt. Plenty of bargains to be had, and each stall holder had their own particular way of drawing you in, which we loved.

 

 

Chameleon Terrapin
I'd never seen such tiny turtles, and was also allowed to hold this chameleon, which was equally small – dinky aren't they :) We haggled over price, bought some lovely wooden boxes and Berber tea, and headed back in the late afternoon.

FrogThe hotel grounds were extensive, and very beautifully laid out, but right in the centre there was a large pond, and every night as we headed to the restaurant, we were greeted with this incredible chorus – sounded like a VW Beetle trying to start up – which was created by a collection of tiny frogs!

Apparently it's their mating season, and so I wondered as I walked, how, if they were lucky enough to meet one they really fancied, they would ever be able to have a conversation with that racket going on…I know, I know…but I had drunk a large sangria earlier :) I got a photo of one during the daytime and was amazed to see they were no bigger than the terrapins – amazing!

Sign for HakeIn fact the restaurants and food played a large part in making our holiday such a pleasurable one.  Not just because it is SO nice to be cooked for and cleared away after, but because the food was fabulous. Lamb and beef tagines, cous cous, incredible vegetables, and stunning salads – I'd never realised you could do so many things with a beetroot!

Of course being a coastal resort they had fresh fish every day and along with red mullet and swordfish they had gorgeous grilled hake – not surprising I was drawn to it eh? :) Along with the large dining hall there was a small Moroccon restaurant with low tables, cushions to sit on and fabulous lanterns.

It was there we met some lovely couples – ranging in age from their 80s to 30s and stayed up talking until at least 2am most nights. I love hearing about other people's lives and we all got on famously – am hoping that this time we might manage to keep in touch. 

Jo, Sophie and AlisonAll too soon the week was over, but I was looking forward to my hours over the weekend and was delighted that the Diamonique TSV was so well received :) I'd booked the 1st April off ages ago as it was my friend Jo's daughter's 21st. Sophie is currently studying at Bath University and so we headed down with a car filled with balloons, presents, cake and fizz and had a lovely day.

I am her Godmother, as Jo is Jack's, and there's only two months between them. I bought her Charlie's diamond heart pendant, as they are her birthstone, and she loved it, as I knew she would.  Do you remember what you got for your 21st birthday?  Do you still have it? I'd love to know so just post it below.

And as it's been a while since I set a competition, I thought this might intrigue you… Guess what the object in the photo is and you could win over £80 of Laura Geller make up!

Mystery itemIs it;

a) Incense
b) Mosquito repellant
c) Hand towel

Just pop your answers in the comments below (make sure to include your email address in the email field – this won't be published) and good luck! 

I hope you enjoy the photos and as always I'll look forward to hearing from you and will promise to write back. Have a great week,

Love, Ali xx

    Hi Ali
    A lovely blog as usual. I’m so glad you both enjoyed yourselves. I’m sorry but there’s no way I could anything like that in my hand!
    I was just wondering if you signed the petition for more funding for Pancreatic Cancer? As you know as a family we lost a Wonderful Mum/Grandmother and Great Grandmother(children she didn’t live to see) to this disease. I honestly think there should be more attention to this type of Cancer. I’m so grateful that many of your colleagues did this.
    Hope you didn’t mind me mentioning this but I’m sure you won’t as you know how much it means to me.
    Speak soon and as always take care

    Hi and welcome back from what sounds like a fantastic holiday and relaxing bresk for you both. It sounds amazing in every sense of the word and the ,market sounds brilliant; I love a good haggle for a bargain or two.
    Oh I think the object is a hand towel….just a guess hope its right as I use Laura Gellar makeup.
    So I am a year older thsn when I last blogged.. I was 48 on 26th March. I must admit to a few tears in the morning as its my first birthday without dad and he would have been first in the phone to say hsppy birthday. I drove to work feeling teary and when my colleagues bestowed me with gifts I gave in, had a good cry and ended up looking like a panda! My twin sister was also away visiting friends so that seemed weird too not seeing her. However she bouggt me a bibi bijoux butterfly bracelet and a Lulu Guinness makeup bag which I had bought ages ago on the LG website..I’m getting nearer to a proper bag!!
    The girls at work spoiled me and one of my best friends bought me some fab nails inc polishes and the othet got me a black and crwam polka dot Kath Kids ton bag. My hubby and kids gave me money..my twin and me are going to Westfield shopping centre when the school holidays finish..can’t wait. I didn’t go out on my birthday however my nephew had an untimely meeting with some railings in his car so I was first port of call..his mum was in the cinema with her phone off…he’s OK and no one else involved just his pride hurt and car damage.
    Its the first day of Easter holidays today and it’s been lasing down foremost of the day…was soaked through to my pants after dog walking…my shower proof coat not up to keeping heavy rain at bay…I looked worse than the dogs plus my mascara was all over my face..not very attractive!!
    So a busy school holiday ahead with cricket and golf taxi service. Jack has got a job as a caddy at Royal St Georges golf club in sandwich so he’s waiting for his training to start..more to it than carrying a golf bag around apparently.. but he’s attending school everyday during the easter break to revise for his GCSE exams that start in May. A stressful time for him but doing revision at school means at least he is doing some structured revision so I am glad he’s making some effort.
    I have a list of jobs to do over the holidays but am already behind schedule.. I was planning to empty and clean the water butt this afternoon as there is lots of stuff in the bottom stopping the water comimg out. However its been raining all day and as I’ve just got over a bout of asthma thsnks to sahara dust and pollution I will now attempt this task on Friday…oh how I am looking forward to that!!
    At least the rain is good for the gsrden. My clematis that I got from QVC last year are growing inches each day..waiting for my tub of flower power to arrive is no doubt thy will be amazing this year. Must go…think my session will time out soon. Much love Mary.
    PS. I got stone pearls for my 21st birthday with a huge crystal clasp. They are gorgeous. Xx

    Answer C) Hand Towel
    My Dear Ali, sorry I haven’t been in touch lately, haven’t been feeling too well. Have been very worried about some bleeding that shouldn’t be happening. Long story short had a colonoscopy (not very nice I know you have had one)and will see specialist in 2 weeks but from what he said all seems well Thank God, I know you will know exactly what I have been through, I was so scared it was the dreaded C word come back. Glad procedure out of the way and will feel better after I have spoken to the specialist. Enough of that talk now.!!!
    A belated Happy Birthday to you glad you were thoroughly spoiled and well done to Colin at the O2 he sounded mighty fine to me, you have a talented man there Ali. Glad you had a lovely relaxing holiday, l like the sound of the crashing waves,and love the tiny little turtle so cute.We have booked to go to Lake Maggiore for a week and I am soo looking forward to that, I love Italy it seems to have it all.Hope all well with your family, Alfie had his other eye operation but one eye is still borderline so he may still need another operation so will have to wait and see. He has started walking a few steps now and is so pleased with himself, we are going to see him this weekend can’t wait to see my boys.
    You are looking very well Ali and love the extra blonde in your hair it really suits you, need to get mine done!!
    Jilly, hope your son-in-law continues to gain strength and Annie’s
    good progress continues, we were in The Lakes a couple of weeks ago a much needed weekend break. Alpa I hope things have improved for you and Liz I hope all is well with you as we haven’t heard from you in a while.
    Nice to catch up with you Ali take care and speak soon love Janet xx

    Hi Ali
    another interesting and informative blog from you. I loved the descriptions of all the creatures you were fortunate to see whilst on holiday. I remember some years ago we were on a cruise and stopped off at the Cayman Islands and I picked up a small turtle and we saw sting wrays. They were amazing. I’ve also been fortunate to swim with Dolphins which I will never forget. The Souks are quite something all the buzz of the stalls is quite something to watch. My husband was offered 100 camels in exchange for me but thought better of accepting!!!! They offered more for my daughter which says it all but he also declined this offer. we still laugh about it all these years later. Regarding 21st presents I received a gold watch from my parents with a small gold disc attached to it inscribed with 21 today, the date and who it was from. Although it doesn’t work now and is beyond repair, I will treasure it always as a lovely reminder of my parents who are no longer with us.
    the answer to the competition is a hand towel. take care and hugs as always to you.

    Dear Julie and Lily, lovely to hear from you and I am glad that you enjoyed the blog and the photos. Lily would have loved the little chameleon – I put it onto Colin’s T shirt after I’d held it and it started to change colour – amazing! Julie I am so sorry, but I don’t recall seeing a petition for Pancreatic Cancer? Was it on Facebook? I will of course sign it if you could just send me the link, and am very sorry for your loss. I hope that you and Lily are well, and that Becks is too. Love Ali xx

    Dear Mary, It was lovely to read about your birthday – just three days after Kathy’s – and although I completely understand how much you must have missed your dad, I am so glad that your colleagues at work made sure you felt cherished :) It sounds as though they and your family know you very well, and your gifts were well chosen, and I hope that you and your twin find some fab things when you go shopping in Westfield! And please do let me know what stone pearls are?! They sound amazing, but can’t say I’ve heard of them before. Promise me you’ll take it easy – you’ve been far from well, and I am certain that jobs like the water butt can just wait until you’re stronger. Be kind to yourself and have a few days rest. Thanks as always for taking the time to write though, and keep us all in touch :) Love Ali xx

    My dear Janet I am so sorry that you’ve had to go through this horrid procedure – possibly my least favourite along with chemo! – that said, I am delighted that the specialist was happy that the cancer hadn’t come back.. You’re right, it is always a very tangible fear each time we have a scan so that is definitely good news :) I was so pleased to read about Alfie’s progress too – even if another operation is necessary he sounds to be coming on in leaps and bounds and I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend. Do take care, and keep in touch, and I shall keep everything crossed for little Alfie. Love Ali xx

    Hi Ali,
    So happy to read that you had a super holiday, it really did all sound so good, and the food absolutely the kind I would love. ( mind you, as long as it’s cooked well I love most , and always looking for “new recipes” )
    I had lovely jewellery for my 21st, which I love to wear still now and then, it was lovely thinking back to that day after reading your blog.
    I believe the answer to the competition is guest towel.
    With love,
    Tricia D xx

    Hello Ali – just wonderful to read all about your super holiday. You knew it was going to be a good one but always so nice to come back and have such lovely memories and pictures. The spice mountains look like something else and the green frog – well!!!!! amazing!!! Never seen one of those in my garden!
    How special also to celebrate the 21st birthday of Sophie and such a lovely photo of you three girls. Certainly one for the scrap book. The top photo of you and Colin is one of such happiness and is just so lovely to look at because it shows how you can move on in such a short time from having your latest op etc. I am just delighted for you and yes, you look the picture of everything good.
    So sorry to hear you have had the worries Janet – I was wondering if Alfie was all right and then thought maybe it could be you. Awful wondering and waiting and of course there is always the hidden worry of what is wrong and then one has to wait for results but at least your chappie feels that there is nothing to worry about and that is such good news for you and all of us who sort of know you – if you see what I mean. Your time in the Lakes will have given you a lot of rest and recovery and recharged the batteries a little. We will be back there in July and are counting the days. Good to hear little Alfie has had his op and how sweet that he is on his feet – now there will be no stopping him! Enjoy your weekend with them.
    Hope all is well with you Alpa – sending big hugs.
    My lot are doing well. Last Saturday Annie’s hubby said he felt normal for the first time in ages – I think many will know what he means – he was tired the next day but as I said it is the start of having more “feeling normal” days and the start of moving on.
    Annie went for her meeting with the breast nurse and was delighted to see that on the paperwork she was given about the op they recommend Arnica to be taken a week before the op. She was so thrilled with this that she phoned as soon as she came out of the meeting. We use Arnica (and other remedies) such a lot and she had taken it after the main op which we feel helped her recovery from that so much. But it is the first time I have seen it written on a medical paper. She asked a number of questions and was very happy with the answers. She will see her surgeon two days before the op to get “marked up”. One side will be the lipo part and the other a reduction with a follow up in about four months time for the lippo part. So longer than she thought it would be but she is feeling good and just wants to get this over and move on – humm – me too! Last night she had a phone call from a friend whose hair was falling out and could she borrow a wig until she got one of her own. Thankfully Annie still has hers as where on a Friday night would one be able to find one.
    Tomorrow is the Elemis special so I cannot wait – I feel my skin looks younger with using it – or maybe that is just wishful thinking on my part!!!
    Looking forward to “seeing” you Ali and getting your catch up – school holiday now for Lucy so hope she has a good break. Love and thanks for being here for us Jilly XX

    Hi Ali,
    I hope you are well.
    I think the answer is C Hand Towel
    I sent a message a couple of months ago enquiring if there were any plans to design a piece of jewellery in memory of the lovely Amica for the breast cancer care event.
    The pendent that you designed is lovely and was so popular, I’m sure that a pendent for Amica would be a just as successful as so many viewers loved Amica. Maybe the wording “Always in my heart” could feature as that would be applicable to everyone who may have lost a loved one.
    Amica was always so happy and like a ray of sunshine when she was on QVC so maybe a Sun pendent or sunflower pendent would be nice.
    Maybe you and Charlie could design something together as I know that you were both very close to her and miss her dearly.
    Please let me know your thoughts.
    Love Jacqui XX

    Hello there Judith, and I hope you will have had a lovely weekend in the sunshine. I’m glad you enjoyed the blog because I enjoyed reading about your trip to the Cayman Islands and the story about the camels :) I visited Tunisia years ago with my then boyfriend, and he was offered just four camels for me, and even with inflation, the 100 your husband was offered speaks volumes!! Thank you also for sharing your memories of the beautiful 21st birthday watch your parents gave you.. I’m so glad you still have it :) I should be drawing a winner for the competition towards the end of the week, so keep in touch, love Ali xx

    hi there Janet (Jones) – so sorry I confused you with another Janet! I wasn’t 100% certain it was you on Twitter, but took a gamble! Good job there was no money on it eh?! I hope you had a lovely weekend with Alfie and co, and that you’re feeling much better since your positive health news. Take care, and keep in touch, love Ali xx

    Good for you Naomi! We had a gorgeous day down here yesterday and although the wind is chilly this morning it’s beautiful and sunny. Thanks for sharing your memories of your 21st with us – a show in London is always great, but Les Mis is one of the greatest :) If you enjoyed that you would love Miss Saigon – although I thought it was even sadder! Jersey Boys is well worth a watch, and my Lucy loved Wicked. Thanks for your competition entry, the draw should be at the end of the week! Love Ali xx

    Just wanted to thank the following for their competition entries – seems like we are going to need a slightly larger hat than I’d thought, to contain them all!

Catherine Rice, Lynn Emmitt, Pamela Hutchinson, Samantha Donough, Diane Rodgers, Janice Reeves, Karen Latiff, Renee Armstrong, Louise Brill, Sheena Prophet, Vanessa Humphries, Julie Tift, Kathy D and Jackie Foster, love Ali xx

    Dear Donna, thank you for taking the time to enter the competition – it is a great prize though so I’m not surprised! I’m glad you enjoyed the blog, and I am pretty certain that you would love a trip to Morocco – this was our second year to visit and there’s plenty to see out there – very enjoyable. Love Ali xx

    Dear Susan, thank you for writing, and for your kind words :) I enjoyed my time with Nicky Lloyd and the Birkenstock hour. She’s such kind woman and has a great sense of humour. The necklace I am wearing is from Bibi Bijou, but a couple of years back – not sure if they still have it, but it is one of my favourites. I don’t think we still have it in stock, but maybe have a look at their own website? Good luck – with that and the competition, love Ali xx

    Mary, I am sure that were we to set Ralph from Honora a challenge he would definitely rise to it! :) Thanks for the compliments – I always feel healthier when I have a tan, and the navy blue Yong Kim was quite a good colour to show it off!! :) Glad you got the cafe au lait – they really are very comfy and perfect for summer slippers as you say. The fit over sunnies are brilliant I agree, so I’m glad you managed to order those too. I shall try and remember to give you a wave when next I’m on in the wee small hours :) Love Ali xx

    Dear Jessica, Thank you very much for telling us about your 21st birthday gift – an original watercolour seascape, painted by John Miller. I have to be honest and admit that I wasn’t familiar with his work and so had a look online, and can immediately see why this painting was such a treat for you. I love Cornwall, and the land and sea that makes up this beautiful part of our country, and to own just a little something of that must be very precious. Have a great week, and do keep in touch, love Ali xxx

    Dear Susan, It was nice to hear from you, and you are right, it’s doing the little things that make you happy, that can make all the difference. I know that after my treatment I decided that if I wanted to do something, and it was physically possible then I shouldn’t put it off… and I’ve been very lucky not to have to. Getting the balance right between work and play is as you say, something we should all try and do more of. Again, the number of days that I work means I now have more time than I used to, but work is also enjoyable for me too! I hope that all is well in your life, and thank you for entering our competition. Love Ali xx
