the rambling part…

So this is getting posted more than a little late as we have been away. On Tuesday afternoon we packed, wrote lists and generally prepared for Matt’s parents to take over looking after the two biggest terrors…and for us to take the little two to Lapland to visit Santa.

I had put more effort into the two we were leaving behind up until we left the house. So much to do in order to prepare for their clubs, the outfits they would need, the school dinners they would need change for to save trouble making packed lunches and cleaning lunchboxes, the cloths to drop off at other people’s houses so they didn’t have to remember to take them in to school for drama and football, the lists of phone numbers, the people to tell… I had barely even packed for us!

Eventually all instructions were handed over, Grandad was on his first “taxi run” of the week taking Gx to football – and we set off to spend the night in a Travelodge near the airport.

The children were thrilled with the hotel room…

especially as it had a view of the airport at night and all the planes arriving and leaving…

The children were so excited I wondered how we were going to get them to sleep…

Lx had a quick chat on the phone to her grandparents (she would love a mobile phone for Christmas – but it’s not going to happen!!)…
