Little Z couldn't wait to get into the classroom today and there was not a backward glance to Mummy and Daddy. She came out at lunch time bouncing. Apparently she had been on the computer today and not "the boring stuff - it was brilliant stuff". That's about all we could get out of her other than she was really put out that she couldn't go back in the afternoon!!

It was back to school for AJ today and it was also little Z's first day at 'big school'. She has been so excited and couldn't wait for today to arrive. We have been counting the 'sleeps' since we came back from holiday.
From the minute she woke up there was a big smile on her face as she was finally going to school with AJ.
Our last night onboard. We had eaten more food than you could ever imagine, tried activities we wouldn't normally get a chance to (Merengue, Viennese Waltz, Cha Cha and Tango dance classes, ice skating, basketball, table tennis, crazy golf, rock climbing to name but some), enjoyed the luxuries of the spa treatment (well Mrs H did!), enjoyed the Kids Club (all of us benefited from that!) and had been entertained with an ice dance show, flamenco performance, Beatles tribute band concert and a mixed entertainment evening. All in all a fantastic holiday and the children are already asking when we can go again!! Highly recommended even though there was a nasty bout of sea-sickness which caused 3 of us to miss the Captain's Dinner! We love Royal Caribbean cruises !!!
Our hols started off in Malaga for a couple of days to acclimatise ourselves to warm weather before our cruise. We based ourselves in the Novotel Malaga airport for convenience and whilst the location was a bit challenging to find eating establishments (and particularly anyone that spoke English - Grandma and Mrs H had to speaka da lingo mostly!!!) the facilities were more than adequate. Swimming pool and hotel towels - what more can you ask for!!!!!!!
OK well I know I promised to try and keep the blog up to date but have failed miserably. Since my last post, we have had the outside of the whole house painted, the interior decorated, new flooring completed, new carpets, master bedroom decorated and carpeted, new wardrobes fitted and have managed to fit in 2 work trips to London for Mrs H and a family holiday with Grandma and Grandpa to the Med. Lots of photos to follow!!!
