And our postman has just delivered our Virgin Holidays "it's nearly time for the Bennett party to hit the Caribbean" pack !!
Oooohhh - nearly time to start thinking about shopping/packing !
I can't wait to try a chocolate martini - having given up chocolate as part of the pre Jamaica diet - I shall relish the thought of combining chocolate with alcohol - OMG - 50 days - I can't wait that long !!
I have my packing list all ready and waiting but I must admit I don't even think about packing until the weekend before we go.
I wish Virgin would hurry and deliver my tickets, I am desperate, even though that wont make the time go any quicker !!
I am now in the gym almost everyday trying to lose the last little bit of weight, food is a problem with all the Christmas functions already started, had to eat out three times this weekend, still back to the diet today, hopefully still on track to be my target weight for the wedding, I think I will have to visit the gym every morning at couples to work off the previous nights Chocolate Martini's and fantastic food !!!!
42 more sleeps and 6 weeks tomorrow, don't know which one sounds better so thought I would put both
49 sleeps to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just packing my bags in Spain ready to take to the UK, OMG so excited, diet going well so now getting in clothes i have never been able to wear, not sure about the Gym while on holiday, will think about that one depends how many chocolate martinis i have.
Hi Ken and T
We arrive on the 29th, look forward to meeting you both.
We are there for my brother's wedding on the 31st, they are Steve and Ellie.
Cant wait to go getting so excited, where is South Jersey?
Thanks Gene and Terry,
I thought it might have something to do with New Jersey but was not sure, i once got the ferry from NY to NJ then drove to Penslyvania, what a lovely time we had.
I am sure Jamaica will be amazing, i cannot wait i am so excited!!!!!!!
as I travelled to work on the train today and the rain was pouring down, all I could think of was .... this time in 5 weeks I will be in my nice big bed, in my lovely room, waiting to wake up, get my bikini on, head down to the pool, grab myself a cup of coffee and spend the whole day relaxing in the gorgeous Jamaican sunshine !!!
I just want these last few weeks to fly by but I know they will positively crawl by sob sob
Five weeks tonight (28th December) will be our returners dinner - oh boy - I can't wait. Other than New Year's Eve - that has got to be just one of the best evenings at Couples Negril .... but we still 34 days to wait before we return to Paradise !!
I have now completed all my Christmas shopping so can now start to think about shopping/packing for our trip - Got to get my NYE outfit sorted !! Ellie you will have ticked that one off your list I expect - a fab night for a wedding reception !!
Yes .. the days do seem to take forever when you're waiting for paradise but go oh too quickly when you're actually in paradise !!
Hi Helen, all my arrangements are sorted for the wedding and the reception when we get back home, I have another 7lbs to lose, which I know will be difficult with all the Christmas parties happening !
I can't believe you are already thinking about packing, I do all mine the day before, although I suppose I do spend the whole year compiling the list
I have 26 more sleeps until we head to the Sofitel hotel at Gatwick, we like to count the night before as the start of the holiday
reporting in for some serious posting !!!
That must mean that our tickets could be here by the end of the week then - even more whooooo !!!
After all the rain and now the cold has arrived I am in need of some serious sunshine - and not much rain hopefully
I can't decide whether to bring some lights/decorations for our balcony as we don't arrive til 26th but want to keep the festivities going as long as poss !!!! We saw quite a few when we were there two visits ago for New Year No harm I suppose ... anyway enough from me ... someone else now please !!!
Within seconds of posting my previous reply my landline rang and it was Antoinette the Virgin rep ringing me from Jamaica - oooh ! She was lovely and to hear that wonderful accent - bliss !!How wonderful to get such a call - first time that has ever happened to me with any travel company - good service or what !! A sign of things to come - whoooooooooooo !!!
wow, that has never happened to me either, why was she ringing you ?
We saw loads of lights last time we were there, they do have a safety issue about plugging them in I think though, lots of people had the battery operated ones and they were fine.
We were there from the 21st until the 6th last year and didn't see one single drop of rain, so I am hoping for the same this year
Soooo cold on my way to work this morning, even with my big thick thermal socks on my feet were frozen. Still this time in 3 little weeks we will be at the airport, I just cannot wait !!!!!
