Oh hun. I hope you can enjoy it and not be too ill. It's hard to pace yourself when you're with other people too isn't it. Hopefully they will all understand that if you do too much, you will need to rest the next day. I honestly don't know what else to suggest. Sorry. xxx


Hi Lynz :)

MMMMM sounds like you will have your hands full, i have a sugestion for you

1st tell us where you are going 2nd i am sure myself Mrs C and baby C would come with you, is there room in your suitcase for the 3 of us hehehehe :d

I wish i had the answer for you but i am not that clever sorry :(

I am sure that no matter what happens you will have a great time :)

Dont forget the post card :)



lol chorley :-D we are going to local coast cause the idea of traveling far away with 5 children in the car saying "are we there yet " 8 million times dosnt infuse me with excitment lol :)


be honest, sound like u r going with people who love ya, when things are getting to much say. ( they will understand, if the boot was on the other foot you would, wouldnt you? x Also for the last couple of holidays i have some lazy know early dinner or just loads of snacks from supermarket. couple of games of cards, my sister and i kept buying bits from poundland before we went and before we knew it had a bag full of surprises to keep the kids entertained ( much cheaper than resort too) and as much as a night out you will be be surprised how much others love lazy nights too. hubby actually ask for them now. lol . also alternate lazy day, night out, & day out , lazy night. most of all enjoy.spending time with ur love ones and have fun, lou xx


thanks lou thats a great idea and it will save some pennies too :-D


yep does in deed, already started a bag for our nxt trip with my sisters 2. x
