|ready for the party yesterday|
|First night in bunkbeds, a birthday present from their Grandad. This should be fun!|
They had a joint birthday party yesterday at a place called Junglemania. The same venue where they celebrated last year, when I was lucky enough to be there to watch the fun. It's a large indoor area with lots of climbing frames, slides, and soft areas, and the children have such a good time. It is followed by a tea party in a private room, then they all leave for home thoroughly exhausted.
The last of my airmiles with Turkish Airlines have enabled me to reserve my flights for October. It's a free ticket and of course the taxes have to be paid (but not immediately). It's still a fraction of the full price though. I constantly search the website for available free flights and they are so difficult to find unless you book well in advance, so if I don't do it now it won't happen.
There is also a promotion running at the moment where you use less of your airmiles to book, so I have actually managed to obtain the return flight in Business Class! All award tickets come up as "limited capacity" when you book, so they are not guaranteed, but I will check in very early on the day in the hope that all goes according to plan.
It seems such a long way off, but it's something to look forward to.
