Two weeks until I'm on holidays!

My DH is hopeless, I get home from work today and he says " I bought some plants".
Sick of trying to tell him not to spend our money yet

When we get back from holidays he can spend to his hearts content, but right now hold off

I'm working tomorrow now, just make that little bit extra

17 days!

Oooh, and she's staying at Excalibur which is the best hotel in Vegas, and the Anaheim Plaza Hotel and Suites which has an Olympic sized pool and is just across the road from Disneyland!! Haven't the heart to remind her that it will be a bit chilly when she's there. Maybe I'm being a it mean, but jeez, just let me eat my tuna and salad in peace. She doesn't know that I'm going in 20 days(!), don't want to steal her thunder because she is so excited, but for the love of God shut up.

The other one is about my age and has just got an ipad. Yes, it's a lovely ipad and I really do like the pretty paisley cover you have for it and yes, it does have some really cool functions, but please,please let me eat my tuna and salad without watching your gifted 10 year old's project on the Amazon rainforest as my lunchtime entertainment....we work in a school for God's sake, we get enough of that in the classroom.

Ok...enough of crankpants Liz. Maybe I just need to order a chicken nachos from the canteen for lunch and I might be in a better mood.
I hope you eventually had your tuna in peace

So now I'm wondering about character breakfasts at DL.
Last time we did Goofy's kitchen and the Critter country.
Goofy's kitchen was great, the other one the food was grat but the character interaction was hit n miss.
I am tempted though to try Ariel's grotto but am wondering if it'll be too girly?
Any suggestions appreciated also

My family did Ariel's Grotto and it was my DH's personal favourite. His goofy smile in all the photos as he gazed adoringly at each princess is priceless. Sleeping Beauty especially made him smile and blus

2 weeks tomorrow!

Tradies building a house next door unloading their truck at 6am, Lucky I didn't tell them where to go!
I feel like I haven't slept

I started clothes sorting yesterday, I think it's official and I have no clothes (plenty of room in my suitcase then)
