Cottage Life

We went to the cottage about a week ago. It was fun. The kids had a blast!! They tend to make the most out of most situations. Love them for that.

The only crappy thing I had to say about the experience, is the amount of spiders that were there. But I hate nature. Everyone who knows me, know this.

But here are some pics for your viewing pleasure:

This is the view from the kitchen window of the deck. All you can really see are the trees. If you look close enough, you might even be able to see some spiders. Not even kidding. They're there.

This is a pic of the bbq after John cleaned it up. I can't post a pic of the before because that pic would make you gag. No, really, it would.

This pic is pretty self explanatory. It's yum yums.

This is a pic of the stairs beside the pool house going towards to water/deck. If you look closely, you can even see spiders in this pic. Honestly, my skin crawls looking at this specific pic.

And finally, this is a pic of the kiddies and Meli frolicking in the water. This was pretty much a constant for them. They were always there.

Pics courtesy of John's phone. Haven't uploaded the pics from the camera yet.

My health plan

This year (after a haitus last year) I will be playing mas again this year at Caribana (or whatever it's called).

This is my costume (the teal coloured one):

So in dire hopes of fitting into it (I really wish you could try on the costume before purchasing it) I will be doing a strict health regiment. Well, strict for me. Probably pretty lax for everyone who's even remotely healthy.

I will attempt to keep a journal or log of some sorts to help out with this. Effective today.

*Wish me luck*

Bucket List

So I've come out of retirement. Just for a bit. Not sure how long this is going to last, but I had to share the two places I want to add to my bucket list. Since I don't have anything on it yet, I will list these as #1 & #2, however, that is not necessarily the order of importance in which they stand in my life.


Yes, that is a waterslide, and yes that is a pool filled with sharks!
The Leap of Faith @ Atlantis: The Palm in Dubai
27.5m tall and 61m long, from the top of the Ziggurat the Leap of Faith catapults riders into a transparent tunnel and through a shark-filled lagoon, where guitar sharks, bow mouth sharks, white tip, black tip and grey reef sharks all reside.

#2) AquaDuck on Disney Cruise Lines
AquaDuck is a thrilling "water coaster," whose entrance is on Deck 12, Aft aboard the Disney Dream. In a cruise industry first, Guests are propelled at high speeds from Deck 12, Aft through an acrylic tube on a breathtaking journey up, down, around and off the side of the ship, through the Forward Funnel and—following a mammoth drop—into a lazy river.
Developed by Disney Imagineers, this elevated water coaster—the first of its kind at sea—travels 765 feet and features exciting twists, turns and plunges. It was designed for adults and children at least 42" or taller. Single riders must be at least 54" or taller. Children under 7 may ride with someone 14 years of age or older, provided the child is at least 42" tall.
AquaDuck affords breathtaking views of the ocean and ship below—that is, if you're brave enough to keep your eyes open during this exciting ride! It also offers a bird's-eye view of the exciting new pools available to family, kids and adults on the Disney Dream.

ok, tata for now.
