Our family weekend away!

As we are off on our big holiday in October, we have decided to take a couple of little breaks in the summer to break up the 7 weeks Millie is off.  Last week we had time booked off to head down South.  Unfortunately our car broke down just as we were leaving Dumfries but we managed to hire a brand new car which has made me very sad  that I can’t keep it.

My First Cruise – By Millie (Aged 6)

Hello.  I am called Millie.  My Mummy is called Stacey and she works selling lots of lovely cruises.  I love playing with my friends and my best friend is called Sophie.  I am in Primary 2 at school and won a silver medal today at Sports Day.  A fortnight ago I went on my first cruise holiday.  Mummy and Kevin took me on a big ship called the Celebrity Eclipse.  Mummy is now going to ask me some questions about the cruise.

A little taste of luxury!

I can’t believe we are now into May which means the month I get to travel on the Celebrity Eclipse.  We are all excited, especially as it is Kevin and Millie’s first time on a ship.  A lot of my good friends are going too so it will be great to all get together.  Millie says that she wants to get to the children’s club so I don’t think I will see her much.  We travel down to Southampton the day before the cruise and we are going out for a nice meal and some cocktails.  The cruise is then two nights, a quick hop across to Le Havre and back.  We aren’t planning to leave the ship, just want to enjoy the facilities for a weekend.

Start spreading the news, I’m leaving tonight! Well, almost…

Things are all very exciting this week as I am preparing for my New York trip next week.  I had an unexpected day off today so I went into town and spent about a weeks wage (it felt) in Boots on all of my toiletries.  It will be so funny when myself and the girls get to our suite and line up all of our purchases!  I got a bag for my birthday which I managed to change and also had a wee hair cut.  This afternoon I came home and tidied the house.  It’s amazing how much I get done when Millie is at school!  Once the house was spotless I decided to print off my documents.  I printed my flight ticket, hotel confirmation, ESTA (always good to have a copy), insurance document and our itinerary.  So, I think I am ready!!!  Just six sleeps to go 🙂  Here are some pictures of my last time which I will update with my new ones I come back!
