The Happiest Day of Our Lives...

I'm not sure I have posted in the correct place, so please feel free to move this report, moderators!

Anyway, here we go. I have the following photo on my desktop at home at the moment, it really sums up how I feel at the moment....in my Happily Ever After.



I would love to just swirl into eternity with Gavin and not have to worry about the outside World. However, that's not going to happen and so here's my Trip Report. From July 31st until August 24th, 2008.

Day One, July 30th

Day One ~ 30th July, 2008

Our trip begins on the 30th when DF, myself and the boys finally finished packing everything (well, nearly) into the car and we set off up the country towards the Midlands. DF and I live near Southampton and so we had a loooong drive ahead of us. Made longer, of course, by the presence of a car-hating Husky in the back of the car with me and a car-sick husky who puts a brave (green) face on it in the front with DF. Casanova (car sick Husky) is on the left, Excalibur (car hating Husky) is on the right.



So, packed up, we left and headed up the country. We arrived at the luxury dog resort in Worcester and left the boys (trying not to cry) with a big bag of treats and toys and we carried on to my parents to get ready for the taxi which would take us to Heathrow.

Arriving at my parents', disaster one struck. There was a note on the door from my sister and brother in law saying that the taxi had turned up this morning at 8am by mistake and we needed to call and rebook. I had my first panic attack of the trip and luckily DF took control and sorted it out whilst I made a cup of tea. Cups of tea are like magic remedies for English people. We have them whenever something goes wrong.

So, crisis one averted, we started the final packing. My parents were both at work so we got a surprise when my dad arrived home to wave us off! Whilst he was there I presented DF with the following book for a little gift...



My dad and I laughed for ages as Gav sat on the sofa trying to read as much as he could before the taxi arrived...

30th July Continued...

With Dad wishing us all the best and helping pack, the taxi arrived and we got in, thinking that our adventure had started. I was so excited, I could not believe that we were finally on our way to get married!

We arrived at Heathrow after about two hours of snoozing in the chilly air conditioning and watching the sat-nav which was like watching an airplane’s flight. It was fun in a geeky kind of way and I laughed when I found out Gav was doing the same as me.

We unloaded at Heathrow and wheeled our cases into the entrance which was being refurbished, then headed off to look for our resting place for the night ~ the Japanese Yotel!



We arrived at the tunnel-like entrance and we were figuring out how to check in when a kind member of staff showed up and volunteered to help us. We had a chat and she gave us our room key and showed us to our room…

Thank you! A Yotel is a Japanese Hotel, with cube-like rooms. Very cute!

Day One Continued Again!

So Gavin and I entered our little cocoon. We explored every corner ~ there's alot packed into these little rooms, all hi-tech gadgets and it's so cosy. I'm claustrophobic (as you will see later in the TR) but this felt like a little nest. I loved it.

We explored.... (note the Indiana Jones hat in the background)



...and found this little naughty lightswitch! Look at switch number 2!!!



Then there was a knock at the door, and when we opened it, there stood the lady that had checked us in ~ with this!



We were so shocked! We thanked her profusely, shut the door and jumped up and down giggling like children ~ our adventure had begun!

Now, are you SURE it's not '*** of the free booze and naughty lighting?

Jack and I stayed in the yotel @ gatwick last month, was great fun, we had a single bed but it was still fine (albeit snuggly) for the two of us. LOVED the shower!!

Also your doggies are beautful!!
