Mum's Sunday Morning
For the first time in months, I am up on a Sunday morning before the boys. We went to some friend's Mardi Gras party last night and got home late.
The boys ate the entire bowl of purple M&Ms. Jack loved all the beads and booty. At one point party-goers were throwing stuff out of a bedroom window at him, like they do on Bourban Street. Danny had mixed feelings about the whole thing but came home with a pocket full of large shiny coins that he slept with last night.
So this morning I am looking at flights to England. On lots of people's advice I have been using Kayak.com & it does seem to be the best site. I've got 3 price alerts getting emailed to me every day for flights at the end of July, Christmas and general cheapest with no dates. Best so far is $900 each at Christmas and about 300 bucks for a car. We're having second thoughts about Christmas though because of the dogs and the possibility of getting stranded in a blizzard like we did in December 2007. July is the latest we can go because Jack starts school mid-August. I'm enjoying looking though. The planning and expectation is just as exciting as the actual thing sometimes isn't it, like Christmas.
Right then, off to get a coffee and then muck about on Pinterest for 10 minutes. This house is so quiet! Ahhhh..
