Roo am so sorry to hear about your mum, how frustrating for you as well, hopefully you will get the answers when you get there.....good luck chick, sending you lots of love xx  Just think how great the day will be when you can tell your job so shove it up their a**!!

 

On the hand luggage thing.....we are flying with Thomson & have a letter from First Choice saying 'In addition to the normal hand luggage of 5kg we allow wedding couples an additional 5kg for wedding attire, this needs to be placed in a suitable case/box complying with our size requirements' ......... I am taking this letter with me & will be whipping it out in my bridezilla moment....lol.....for all of you flying with Thomson I would presume this is the same for you girls.

 

9 Weeks Lyndsey....OMG....we are 12 weeks, so scary....am really excited but getting really nervous as well!!

 

Are you girls taking dollars with you are pesos?

 

 

I've been reading so much about the no dollars thing but it seems they are fine to take and use at our hotel. I will prob take a mixture of both... not really sure how much spending money we will need for 2wk's. Suppose i should start thinking about that...?

 

I know they like tipping in dollars....

I cant wait to tell him to shove it up his arse.He spent allday trying to sort out a tribunal that didnt go in his favour so pleased his man management skills came under fire.lol

I will deffo look for somink else and sell our home so i can do less hours

I rang the hospital this morning and she had a bad night the nurse said she recieved four wacks from the diffibulator during the night and they called a meeting with my brother and dad.My brother is happy with her care now and said mum is terrified which probably isn helping shes gone for a ct and the op still wont be done but it will be done at the dublin hospital where she had her heart surgery.

Hes going to ask if i can visit tonite when i get there fingers crossed xx

Will keep fingers, toes & everything else crossed for you Roo, I expect it will really lift her spirits when she sees you & she probably is scared bless her xx

 

I was wondering how much to take as well Michelle......have got to say funds are running really low at the minute.....having the boiler go at Christmas really wiped us out.  My mum has been fantastic, she insisted on paying for my bridesmaids shoes on Saturday bless her.  As its all inclusive I don't suppose we need much but I do want to do the swimming with dolphins with the kids.....looked up it up to do it at Xel ha, for the whole day for the 4 of us all swimming with dolphins & paying for lunch & dinner in there it worked out abut £400 for the day.  Seems a lot of money for one day but it is probably one of the only excursions I will do, Richard wants to see some ruins but I'm not too bothered & the Akumal beach where you can swim with turtles is about 15 mins from our hotel, costs $3 to go there on the collectivo buses so that is a result.

 

I think we will just have to see how much we have in the kitty when we go & what we've got we've got!!

Yeh we're pretty much the same :o( funds have run out now and its a matter of take what we can... pants!!!!

 

We want to swim with dolphins but hope it to come in under £400.. I know you said that was for the day etc etc... but Dan will go nuts if we pay that out on one day. He wants a golf day which will be expensive and obviously our nights out to Coco's but apart from that a little shopping trip round playa del carmen will do me. I want to RELAX on my holiday lol..

Yeah, flying with Thomsons too, and have the same letter, it will also be coming with me!!! Haha x

 

We usually like to take $1 & $5 dollar bills to tip with and then higher denominations for excursions etc.... as far as i know they still accept dollars so i will take them, i think, and my Credit card as a back up :-) x

We swan with dolphins in Cuba and it was around $80pp so i cant imagine it being much more in Mexico and thats if it is more?

 

Have a look at this... says $99, but that depends on the package, look around site, its quite good :-)

Oh wicked that is great!!

 

One of my BM's swam with them when she went two yrs ago. She got in and did the $60 one with her daughter. Her other daughter went in and was lifted etc etc with them with her dad. That one was about $90 i think she said. But that was literally going and just swimming with them. I think Lisa's is a whole day out by the sounds of it and i suppose $100 each for a day out is OK.

 

I'm really looking forward to it. I really wanna go in but think i might chicken out once i'm there lol.. just the thought of something swimming under/around me makes my heart race!! Apparently they are REALLY smelly too ha ha - i can hear Scarlett now  "mummy what is that smell" lol..

 

Back to the flight, BM's hubby phoned the airline today to be told (something i had already warned them) that we wont have TV's in the back of our seats on our long haul Monarch flight. Their planes are not premium and a lower scale to other laug haul carriers! So they are not happy as their girls will be bored for 10hours and not like watching the TV in the aisle(they are taking portable DVD players but will only run for 2hrs). I understand ppl's frustration it is bad we are on there 10hours but it's old hat. We knew it and whats the point in moaning about it there is nothing i can do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

We've also had a few dramas with ppl over the last few days about the wedding and AHR etc ppl not passing invites on and then getting the stick for it.... can't even be bothered to explain as dont wanna bore you all but it just absolutely makes me laugh how horrible and nasty trouble makers come out when a wedding is involved!! Actally makes me sick!!!!!!!!!! Rant OVER :o) xx

I swam with the dolphins when Jay & I went to Mexico 12yrs ago and it was amazing, i cant wait to do it again. They do it at Xcaret which is ment to be very good. We went there but they didnt have the dolphins then, but a lovely day out.

 

I was told by my TA to take Mexican Pesco this is what the travel agents were advised back in November from Mexico, as they said that you are limited on how much dollars you can use, will be worth checking when you go to change them up.

 

Nicyx where has the time gone, 9 weeks omg

 

Michelle try not to let them get you down, some people will always find something to moan about.cheers.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
