The time is not important as I know Harry & I will be propping up the bar around that time anyways, so don't stress about it too much you are on holiday. I will try and find a photo of Harry and I but that maybe a mission due to the fact that I hate having my photo taken so you may end up with just a picture of Harry, but I will be the short dumpy one that is stood besides him. LOL
The AN thing its Harry you will need to convince not me really as I am comfortable in my own skin but not sure about Harry, will be working on him for the next 104 days so you never know. I sound really brave but when it comes to it I may change my mind, but knowing myself after a few drinks anything sounds like fun so I will probably give it a go.
Look forward to seeing a picture of you two so that at least I can put a picture to the messages.
Anyone else want to join us at the pool 21st January around 12 - 13 hours feel free and we can all get to know each other in the flesh as to speak.

Yep - Ready to go!! Time to start shopping for suntan lotion. I try never to touch the stuff, but I think this trip I'll have to make an exception. Are they all pretty much the same slimy concoctions, or does someone have a favorite to recommend?
I'm still a fan of "blue lizard" brand sunscreen. I burn easily, but this stuff works well and stays on for a long time, even in water! You can buy it on drugstore.com and amazon.com. Another nice feature is that they sell it in carry-on compatible size tubes. This is very important to us since we don't bring checked luggage!
Hi Guys, not sure if the picture will come out as not very good at the computer thing.
I have tried to attach a picture of Harry, as I said in my previous posts don't like my picture being taken.
We are now down to 86 sleeps and I am addicted to the message board, spending at least an hour a day on here and dreaming, but soon we will go and know.
Jeff I find that P20 is great, I suffer with prickly heat and burn really easily but using P20 this is minimal and the best thing is you only have to apply once a day so don't need to take it to the beach, 1 less thing to worry about.
Well peeps, 74 days to go.
Booked the seats on the plane and managed to get the ones we wanted, so life's good.
Harry has ordered Champagne & Chocolates for the flight, just to kick start my birthday celebrations, after 31 years he is still so romantic, not the tough Yorkshire man he tries to portrait.
Chris, we'll be bringing one or two of those soft Frisbee-like disks that Rob brought last year, along with some paint in case people want to do that. We usually bring some cards and dice, too, but those don't tend to work that well on the beach or in the pool. Last year one of the CSS staff taught us a couple of card games that they like to play. We played those games at the swim-up bar, which worked ok. We travel with carry-ons only, so we can't bring too many large items!
