The Secret's Out

A few days ago I mentioned a little secret trip that was taking place.

Did you realise I'd been away?

Having spent a wonderful 4 days in Venice with my husband, I am now back to tell the story...

My daughter has known for months that she was going to Lake Garda with school to play some open air concerts with the orchestra.
 She has been counting the days and has loved making us feel jealous that she is having a holiday and we're not.
Little did she know that we had been planning our own getaway to the same region so we could watch one of these concerts in the beautiful surroundings of an Italian village.

After spending a wonderful few hours in Peschiera del Garda we headed over to a little village to find the venue. We then sat in a bar to wait for their arrival. I did a "Sandy" from Grease as the coach stopped out side the bar and hid behind my menu but we didn't get caught.

Unfortunately, we did later!!!

Having "Pink Panthered" across the road we hid at the side of a building and who should walk around the corner to get her violin - BUSTED!!!!

I wish I'd had my camera, her face was a picture - I've never known her to be lost for words and whilst picking her chin up off the floor she managed a "hi"

So, a few pictures for future scrapping....

We had  a great few days away - what have you been up to?


  1. Looks like an amazing time :) Id have loved to have seen her face! lol

  2. What a wonderful surprise for your daughter!!! Some great pics too!! Glad you had a good time! x

  3. Ha ha, that's so funny, I bet you gave her a real shock! It looks like an amazing trip, I loved it when I visted Venice years ago and I'd love to go back. x

  4. Fab surprise - I like it better that you surprised her there rather than that she found out after coming home. Great collage of photos.

  5. So cool :) I have now read all your recent posts ....loving the idea of a list of photos to take (at least I am guessing that't what it is!) What a gorgeous collection of photos you have been taking and totally adore the group well as the layout showcasing it. Happy times :)


Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
