Holidays!

I'm finally off to Dublin tomorrow with Mish and Rach, yay! It feels like ages since we booked it all. I'm going to my parent's tonight, meeting Mish at the train station and we're staying at theirs tonight as they're only 10 minutes from Gatwick. I'm dreading flying Ryanair as I'm always hearing bad things about them; as long as they don't try to charge me for anything extra and get me there (and back) in one piece, I'll be happy.

Rach flew to Dublin from Newcastle this morning, so we'll meet up with her at the hotel. Tomorrow night we're going to see Feeder at the Dublin Academy, although I have no idea where the venue is, so that should be fun! Friday is Mish's birthday and we're planning on going to the zoo, although the weather forecast isn't looking too great at the moment. As it's Rach's 40th on Monday, the day after we get back, Saturday will be her 'honorary' birthday, and she'll get to choose what we do that day. I haven't been to Dublin in about 5 years, so I'm really looking forward to going back.

In other news, Grandad is still hanging in there; it appears that the one aspect of his personality that the Alzheimer's hasn't claimed is his stubbornness. He's currently being assessed so they can decide whether he needs a care home, nursing home or a hospice.

I also joined the gym a couple of weeks ago and have been going religiously 3 times a week. I haven't lost any weight yet but I'm hoping that'll come eventually.

See you on the other side!

HAVE A GRAND CRAIC IN DUBLIN!!!

Oh ugh, Ryanair tho', I hate that airline and refuse to take it ever. Even if it is cheaper. It won't be too long a flight tho', so you will be okay I hope.

ENJOY!

Again: Don't worry about Ryanair. They are fine! I flew to London with Ryanair last month (again). As long as you have only 1 piece of luggage with you (with the correct size) it's fine. Just make sure your handbag fits in there as well (as I said only 1 piece!)

I bought this cam in London & I really had trouble to fit everything in my suitcase so I left my towel at <lj user)"lama_not_llama"s place LOL They are really ok! Have a lot of fun!!
