Well, we have been back in Australia for two days & still haven't had chance to update the photo's. We will try for this weekend as we still have shopping, etc to do.
Sean will be starting his new job on Monday in the arvo, so he gets another sleep in :-/
We will get the photo's organized and up loaded by Sunday (fingers crosed), so keep watching this space.
Traveling back to Oz today, having to get up at 4.30 am to catch the flight at 8.10am. The flight was none eventful which is great for a flight. E got back home around 10pm, so a bit of a long day
Dad & Edna came to the airport to pick us up & drive us back home. A BIG HUGE 'THANK YOU' to then for doing the pick up & drop off and also looking after the house & puppies,also doing some DIY around the house for us as well, they did a bril job. THANK YOU
So back to normality tomorrow with trying to get the washing done & reacquaint ourselves with the puppies.
Hope you all enjoyed reading about our travels as much as we did having them.
We went to the river kwai today as well the tiger temple.
a most beautiful and scenic spot but it is ashame that it is scared with the history . Those japs had no mercy and i felt really sorry for the ppl who were prisoners and for those who died there. Before the river kwai we went to the war graves. A peaceful and scenic spot. Will put pics on as soon as. The river kwai has become quiet commercialised with a market there seeling their goods to tourists. But hey anything for a buck.
Debs was smiling from ear to ear. She patted a puddy tat " I DID I DID " We reckon the tigers were sedated as they were so docile. But hey you had to be there. We had pictures done so will put on as soon as.
Going to bed now as we are knackered as the trip was 3.5 hrs driving coming back
Sorry sis we forgot. HAPPY BIRTHDAY 23 years young. Miss ya and love to all

Well today is our second last day & boy has the time here gone quick, two more sleeps & we leave UK. :-(
Sean said his goodbye to his kids last night so he's not feeling the best but can safely say, 'they all had great fun together' with loads of photo's to boot.
We are off to see Roma this morning and our good byes to Marion & Gerald tonight.
We are sorry we didn't get to see everyone that we would of hoped to but the time has just flown by. Its a shame we only got to see some people once instead of a few more days but as they say, 'time fly's when ya having fun!!'
Well, we hope everyone we saw had a great time with us as we did with them & a HUGE THANK YOU to Nick and Liz for putting up with us for three weeks & their hospitality. XXX
We all had a great night last night for Nick's 40th birthday bash. The stretched Limo was an added bonus which Liz organised (please see pic's)
After having a slow brekky, Nick picked up his folks to pick up their car in Southampton. Then the gang went out (Nick, Liz, Sam, Liam, Shannen, Daniel & us) to Portsmouth to the Aquarium. The kids where pretty excited to see the different kind of fishes.
With no lunch we tried a couple of places for dinner which ended up being The Pilgrim Inn in Marchwood.
Location: Gosport, UK
Went iceskating with the kids and boy am i unfit. Shows ya you need to be fit for the excercise i suppose. Going out tonite with the rat pack for more alchahol... Need to book into the AA me thinks....hahahahahaha
Returned from Bath so gonna have a chill out as drunk so much. Nick and Liz were up until 4.30 am but debs and went to bed at 2.00 am still a good night out and had a lot of fun. I must say the architecture in Bath is amazing. Romans new what they were doing....
Tomorrow going to take kids out so we will see what happens. See ya on the flip side
Location: Bath, UK
Going to Bath today for a two days so more drinking and socialising with Liz (nicks Partner) brother Sean great name.... he reminded me of Benny Hill. Went to the roman baths there and had a pamper day as we needed it. Felt really good as we did the works. will add pics laters
St Georges Day....
Nicks 40th birtday as well so let the beer start flowing.
Had a pretty relaxed day today so nothing really to tell. Just drinking ourselves to an oblivion hahahaha
We have returned from Torquay and Sean is victorius in winning the Torquay cup.
Deb's had a very enjoyable time with friends (Rich, Mandy & John) in Bournemouth, pretty good night had by all & a relaxing brekky in the morning. It also gave us chance to see JamieLee and SammeeJo both great kids although it was strange seeing John as a doting dad. :-)
Going to see kids later today so talk laters
Location: Torquay, UK
I'm off to Torquay for a boys weekend with my mate nick... golfing and having a few drinks basically just catching up as we have not seen much of each other since we have been here. Debbie off to see some mates down Bournemouth tomorrow so we will catch up with you guys later. Sorry about the lack of photos just the pics are to large and it takes sometime to download them. So hopefully debs will be sorting them out today

Location: Eastleigh, UK
Took kids out to the movies today and out to lunch. Pretty quiet day as we are tired with all the travelling. Debs stayed home and had a lazy day oooooooooooooo poor baby she must be getting old cant keep up with the pace hahahahaha.
Location: Windsor, UK
Today was the d-day for taking the kids to Legoland.
We started the trip @ 9:15 & arrived @ 10:45, the kids were pretty good in the car, then again a threat of going back home without going to Legoland might have something to with it ;-)
We took Sam (Liz son) with us as it is the school holidays here & he was at a loose end, so another child made no difference. Nick happened to give us 2 for 1 vouchers so we only paid for one adult & 2 kids, £84 later & we were in.
It was a pretty cold day but good just the same, the kids were on their near best behaviour with only loosing Daniel at the end of the day. Sean found him at the security office in the warmth & playing with Lego whilst we were all freezing our butts off looking for him.
Sean was pretty stressed part of the day but enjoyed himself the rest of the day. They did most of the rides they wanted to but I decided to take the photos, as it was day for Sean & the kids to bond & I still had loads of fun as well.
Took Sam, Liam, Shannen & Daniel swimming at The Rapids then lunch followed by going to the cinema to watch Horton Hears Who.
Went to see Marion & Gerald who both send their love to all.
Location: Eastleigh, UK
We left Milton Keynes around 2pm and had an uneventful trip back.
Didn;t do much just unpacked and chatted for a while with Liz & Nick
Location: Milton Keynes, UK
The trip to Milton Keynes took longer than expected but we arrived in one piece.
It was excellent to see Rich again as he has been going through a bit of fertilizer & when we left he received excellent news.
He took us to a 18th century house with stags on their lawns very picturesque would have been nice to be able to use my filters but with the new camera it was impossible.
We also went to driving around the neighbourhood for a day but the weather was pretty average so we stayed in most of the time.
On out last night we went out for a few drinks with Rich & Colin (one of his friends) it was a pretty good night. Thanks guys.
Location: York, UK
The sun is out must be a good sign of things to come lol...We went to the grand ole town of York today and saw the York Dungeons where the famous Dick Turpin Spent his last few days. Pics to follow. We did a tour and saw a dramitisation which was an absolut larf. Felt sorry for ppl living in those times. Went to the castles as well and again the Jews were persecuted. Those poor blokes dont get a chance in life do they? For all those who wnt to come over for a holiday York is a town to visit for the food , The ppl and of course the history. In the end having a great time so will contact soon.
Off to Milton Keynes tomorrow to see one of Debs Mates so woohoo. Talk then
Sean and Debs
Location: Whitby, UK
We went to Whitby today and saw Capt James Cook place of residence while learning to be a sailor i suppose. It is a beautiful town but the Northern accents get to me as i just want growl back at them hahahahaha. We went up to the Whitby abbey as well which was a beautiful church that was ruined by the Normans , The germans and probably the rest of the world yes including the poms. All i can say is that i wish they could build architecture like that again as it an art in it self... and yes ppl more rain. Send some to OZ please. Went aboard The Grand Turk a trading vessel so pics will follow as soon as we get the time. Damn jpegs are to big for the program so have to try and cut them down to size... Any ideas much appreciated...... Till tomorrow
Hope ya having a grand time

We picked the kids up at 10am & went to the ten pin bowling alley for three games of bowls. All totally enjoying themselves, it was tops to see Sean & the kids having fun again.
Took the kids shopping & blew a small fortune of em but they have enough clothes for a while & they had fun picking the outfits out themselves. Deb's took Shannen around, whilst Sean took the boys around the shop
Next it was off to the movies to see Spiderwick Cron. pretty good movies if you get chance to see it.
Got the kids back for their dinner and we went out to Winchester with Nick & Liz for dinner & some drinking time.

Happy Birthday Marion
We went to see Marion for her birthday & went to The Black dog pub for lunch, Marion & Gerald then had to go to a Country & Western music Award night. Hopefully they had a top night.
