trying to keep dry out of the rain

Hi all
Well, a lazy start to the day after a late night to bed – Glenn went to get me a coffee so that I can start my day properly (out on the balcony with coffee and smoke of course!).
Down to café for breakfast – buffet of anything you could wish for – when Jakob indicated that he was not feeling too well. Being in the café right at the forward end of the ship was not great for him at all. We quickly gathered our breakfast and carried it all out to the pool deck where it was a bit more stable and a breeze helped to calm him down.
Unfortunately, the weather is not that great today – rain, cool and 1-2m swell. Nothing that bad but not great for poolside and other outdoor activities. We checked Jakob into Kids Club for 2 hours and wandered around the shops for a while – not one photo yet today either.
Lunch was down in the main dining area (Lachlan went to the café instead) and we agreed that it would be much quicker and better for our waistlines if we went to the café also!!
A short nanny nap for Glenn, Jakob & I after lunch and Jakob was eager to get back to kids club – he accepted begrudgingly that it was not great pool weather.
You will note from here on in there will be less and less about Lachlan – he has finally found a friend or two and I will now only see him when he needs something or his charge card is not working….. oh well that is what its all about I suppose.
We figured out the best way to dine - Jakob and Lachlan to Windjammer café for dinner around 6pm, Jakob off to Kids Club at 7pm, Lachlan off to his mates and Glenn and I dressed up for formal dinner at 8.30pm – a nice dinner for two at last…. We wont don this every night – just most of them!!
Back to room (having picked up Jakob of course) with a nice bottle of wine and another night of slow rocking to sleep (forgotten how good that could be).

Bye for now
Donna & Howard boys 3

Lots of love to all of you.
