I had no intention of booking our holiday to Florida until next month, it was by pure chance that I rang Thomas Cook to check prices on a couple of hotels, that I was informed - all the flights from Manchester were booked for the dates we wanted - 15 months in advance!!! PANIC set in. So I rang everyone we were going with to say, we need to get this booked NOW!
So to cut a long story short - it's booked, but we fly from Gatwick - not ideal from here, but it's better than not going. So we go April 2009 for 2 weeks - yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!

Florida memories.

Florida 2006

We have just been to get the brochures for Florida, we loved it so much, we are planning to go back next year. We are going with Lorraine, Kuno and Ross again, but we are also going with 2 friends and their 2 kids who have never been before.

Rip Saw Falls, as pictured above - is somewhere I will NOT be!! I hate big drops, especially WET ones!!

I need a Wii......

Have you guys played with a Wii - fun or what! Well I've decided we need a Wii.

I didn't want to get it for Sam for Christmas, as he has one at his Dad's house (so it didn't seem the right pressie from us).

So I have been saving points at work (what do points make - prizes - or in this case high street vouchers!) and decided to cash them in for Debenhams vouchers to buy a Wii.

Sounds good, oh yeah, everywhere seems to have them back in stock apart from - oh you guessed it - DEBENHAMS. I keep phoning to check, but they even have a recorded message now, saying 'we have no stock of Nintendo Wii's - nor do we expect any shortly' Oh deep joy!

To avoid any confusion - only the 'singing' video is mine - YouTube add the extra variety after viewing.
