OOPS! You weren't meant to see the real luggage situation!
Departure preparations are not going too smoothly. Boys very over-excited. I have already had to confiscate one deflated beachball (being used as "wig" by Boy 1), phone, camera, and Boy 1's Ipod thingie; also the man has turned up to fix the broken tile in the bathroom; he has had 2 months to do this but decided to drop by today, and of course he would like a cup of tea (milk and one sugar) and now seems happily settled in for the morning.. I expect we will leave some time in early September..
Mr B gave a serious pep talk:
while at Grandma's, no shouting, arguing, use of bad language, sulking, whining to be taken shopping!
That's me covered, wonder what Mr B said to the boys.
It is Grandma's birthday while we are there. We have some presents for her. I went all fancy with the ribbon.
