Hey busy busy
My best friends two sons both play green shield, I know how much cricket takes over your life. My DS plays cricket but only played to rep level.
Who does your son play for?

Your trip sounds fantastic, lucky you can take your kids out of school
Look forward to following along!

He plays for Sutherland and tomorrow they are playing Fairfield-Liverpool - I hope!!

Over the years in rep cricket we have had 2 major games rained out, I remember all of us on our hands and knees trying to mop up the water on a pitch in Blacktown and another time watching the entire field become a lake at a final in Hornsby.....memories...!!

We have pitch covers at Glenn McGrath Oval, but you can't play if it's raining!! Either way, he's in bed all carbed up and ready to go, and at least lunch for tomorrow is made.

PS...don't worry - the mars bar slice will definitely be eaten!!

So, this month we have traipsed all over town to watch him play - Coogee, Blacktown, Drummoyne, Waitara - just about everywhere!!

Now, after a GREAT run, his team are in the final tomorrow - the first time in 20 years. We are all ready to go, chairs, blankets, esky, lunch, mars bar slice....BUT - it's POURING RAIN!!

I had to vent.....I'm done now (still REALLY disappointed though)!!

I can help with the Mars Bar slice. What a great achievement for your son


Loving the plans. Where are you staying n New York

Hi all,

You are so generous with your offers to chomp down my mars bar slice!! I would make you all one an deliver it to you if it meant that things were going to start in this game!!

Covers have been on and off twice now - a lot of standing around and looking up is happening!! We will have another pitch inspection at 10.30am during which time they will probably ask "can anybody see the pitch"?! The boys are in the club house, 2 are tossing a ball to each other (one of them is my son) and the rest are around a table playing cards!! If this was channel 9, the commentary would be sending us off for an episode of Gillagan's Island right about now!!

Oh well....back to planning....GoGo65 - we are staying at the Salisbury on West 57th, we have stayed at the Doubletree Times Square twice before and it was FABULOUS. On this trip we will be more budget conscious, friends have stayed at the Salisbury and so we'll give it a go. It ended up $2,500 cheaper than the Doubletree for the total of 9 nights - so that means that I just might get a visit to Tiffany!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like we'll be joint premiers here....sigh.

I had to laugh when I read last night that this is the day for Gay Days at the MK - it will definitely be a day to remember!!
If it's anything like the "Gay Days" in Disneyland it can make the park a lot quieter. We couldn't understand at first why Disneyland was so quiet for a Saturday. We then noticed a lot of people wearing bright red t-shirts with "Gay Days Disneyland" & that days date printed on them. (My DH was very happy that he wasn't wearing a red shirt)

We guessed that locals knew about it & had kept away. It didn't matter to us although the kids didn't know where to look when a couple of times some couples got very affectionate while waiting in line. Fortunately they were old enough to understand

Thanks for the info - I'll have to look on the Internet to see if I can find out this year's t-shirt colour!! I might keep the answer to myself though - my 6'4" ex-footballer husband wearing the same coloured t-shirt would be bloody hilarious!!!

A quieter day does sound good though - it's our last day in MK and I would love it to be a calmer experience!! I've also never really felt the need to get amorous whilst in the line for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad - but it's good to know that if DH and I are in the mood for a pash - we won't be the only ones!!!

PS.....Don't worry.....I promise I will keep the birthday kisses for behind closed doors!!!

Hahahaha - I now have a ticker that actually has a WDW picture instead of the Disneyland picture that I suddenly realised I had!!

I think I was so excited that it worked that I didn't realise that I had a picture from the wrong side of the country on it!!!

I am having my hair done tomorrow - I am so excited to do nothing but sit still for 2 whole hours!! Also - the next time that I get it done will be in the week before we go away - HOORAY!!!

UGH - I am trying to make a dining reservation on the WDW website.

- I put my date in
- it changes it
- I put the next day's date in
- it tells me that I have a reservation that day
- which I don't
- the reservation that it's talking about is for the day before
- which I have quadruple checked and have a confirmaion number for
- so I try again
- and the same things happen
- it's so much easier to do it from the computer because the credit card is attached to our "Disney Experience" thingy
- I don't want to use my ipad because it makes me actually enter the card and every time I do that the falcon gets me (even after soooo many bank visits)
- so I have logged out of my stupid Disney Experience and am ranting
- and pouting
- and over it.

The end!!

If you're still up, it might just be almost time to call the WDW-hotline.
