Twice a year Penny and I raid our two pound coin pots and have a couple of days at Hotel des Isles. It is on the sea looking straight out to Jersey, you can see the lights at night. I love sleeping to the sound of the sea.
Of course I will still do some buying and am going to have another go at finding the fabric shop also on the sea that we used for "Patchwork Parties " a few years ago they had some super discounts. Will let you know how I get on.
