Mark is cold and I quote "in desperate need of sun" (he's such a drama queen), so a holiday abroad is on the agenda. Not one of our month long driving ones though. Amy and Thomas don't like being away for that long any more and as much as I love the travelling, I get homesick as well. So this morning we booked a one week package to sunnier climes in the Easter Holidays. Amy and myself are very nervous about the flying part and we seriously considered just sending the boys, but we've dug deep into our courage reserves and have decided we are going with them.
I nipped into Middleton today for a card for my nephew's 18th and picked up a new make-up bag and a jar of 'posh' coffee. It was actually the cheapest branded one on the shelf by a couple of quid which will no doubt make it taste even nicer.
I also spied these, so cannelloni will be on the menu this week. I expect they've been on the shelves for years, but I've never seen them before.
We debated going out but couldn't decide where to head to so ended up at Sainsburys buying new swimming trunks for Thomas (I didn't realise how much he'd grown until I saw him at the gala last week), and cakes to go with the posh coffee. I cut my slice of carrot and walnut in half but after this weekend I will be watching what I eat.
Easter is very early this year and swimming costumes only have so much stretch in them.
