feeling a bit jammy right now hee hee

i have been watching and scouring and watching some more until I was ready to book my flights for the end of August, today my money came together and so it seems has the fare! all the fares have been hovering around £370 to £390 for 22nd august to 29th august, didnt matter which airline, if it was their own site or netflights or majortravel, i have looked at them all. or they were the wrong times arriving way late etc.
so through netflights I have found a fare which only appeared this morning flying with United for £320!! I will get into MCO at 4:15 in the afternoon via Washington and coming back I will leave MCO at 6:30pm. Now i am pacing the floor waiting for OH to get back from work and give me the go-ahead. heres the ironic thing, on United's own website the cheapest price for those dates is £931 and they are worse times. hee hee i feel so smug right now....now please dont all go and steal my fare before 6pm please!!!

i dont know how you do it but once again you have undercut my good work...by £1 but every penny or £ helps, thankyou very much Wayne, I think United have launched a sale today. seems these fares are valid till 14th May, not that I wouldnt check daily anyway.
Shame I wont get to meet you this time, but am sure the cruise will be fab

now come on clock, so nearly there!
