It's looking a tad cloudy and threatening rain outside today so that has scuppered my plans for taking Ruby to the Play Barn today as she only really likes the outside bit of it. It might not be a bad idea to snuggle up and watch a film though as she has been quite poorly all weekend and up until yesterday. The poor little sausage has developed a cold sore and it has really knocked her for six. I've had them myself so I pretty much know the pain they can cause.
We are hoping for good weather on Saturday as we are having a barbecue down at the cottage to celebrate DS's thirtieth birthday which isn't until the following week but he will be at work on the day itself. So my kids are now both thirty and over......how in gawds name did that happen!!!!!
One hundred and seventy days now until we fly to New York. The days are whizzing by and we are just planning our days to make the most of our time there. We got fabulous flights leaving the UK at 9am meaning that when we hit New York it will only be lunchtime.
Starbucks in Times Square is going to be our first stop after we have booked in at the hotel and freshened up and then after tea we will be off to Michaels which is not far from our hotel.
Sunday morning we shall be up bright and early for breakfast (hopefully) and then we are taking a trip to Staten Island to visit Joanne Fabrics. Monday we are doing a city bus tour and an evening trip up the Rockefeller Centre. The New York guide books are permanently out now and it's all coming together really nicely.
Nearly time to go and pick up my Doodle Bird so I had best go and get changed.
Tara for now.
