Getaway


We are heading off to Cyprus to visit Graham's parents for a couple of weeks. I am, as we speak in the middle of packing hell. Trying to fit everything for the three of us into 2 smallish cases is not easy.

The last time we were in Cyprus, Cooper was only a baby and the flight was a breeze. He drank and slept a lot and was perfectly content. I just can't see that happening this time. I really can't see him being content sitting on our knees for five and a half hours five minutes. Eek! To get myself in the mood for our holiday and remember why the five and a half hours will really be worth it and can be got through, I am going to share some photos with you from last year.

  6. What a nifty lunchbox, just what Lovely Hubby needs to stop his salad getting soggy, a seperate little compartment for his dressing....brilliant.

    Looking at those photos it will be worth over 5 hours of toddler entertaining hell for a holiday heaven!!

    Have a wonderful time.

  19. Isn't that fabulous, if I don't win it I may have to buy one anyway. I especially like the little 'sauce' container which would be perfect for salad dressing.

  24. The lunchbox looks excellent. I'm going back to school (well Uni actually) and could really do with a new lunchbox!

  25. I am your stalker too hehe! This lunch box would be ideal for roast carrot hummus dip and pitta bread kept separate with a little greek salad. It would be very holidayish (if that's a word). Bon voyage xx

  26. I don't need a lunchbox, but wanted to say bon voyage - meant to have myself together before now and meet up somewhere for a meal, but am still running behind with deadlines and work stuff -- bleh! We'll see you when you get back.

    Meanwhile, when I traveled with my niece when she was wee, we capitalized on something she liked to do - open gifts - and had a new one for her to "discover" every few hours on a journey. Some of the things wrapped were toys and books she already owned, but was just surprised to rediscover someplace different... it helped keep her occupied and us sane. I hope your plane has those little videos and children's shows. Good luck!!!
