  1. I agree, we chose a Norwegian cruise because of the stops at Geiranger and Olden and wouldn’t only want to see the coastal towns.
  2. We’re not booking excursions just yet but there is a lighthouse trip from Haugesund that we might do. I’d rather be going to Bergen, although it looks like we get more hours in port at Haugesund.
  3. As a newcomer to cruising I’ve found YouTube vloggers very helpful and informative. Other than Sean & Stef I only watch the British ones. If they’re making a fool of themselves I’m glad because I find them entertaining and they’ve helped me make more informed choices. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. We should have gone to Disneyland Paris in September but that’s been postponed to next September. My son & daughter are going by Eurostar and we’re told a while ago they would have to go from St Pancras rather than Ebbsfleet as planned. As Britboys says there are several Premier Inns very close to St Pancras International. If you want to splash out St Pancras has its own hotel, The Renaissance I think it’s called? It’s not cheap though which is why I’ve only ever seen it from the outside 🥴 If your train takes you to Kings Cross it is literally just across the road from St P’s. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. My husband just said the same thing. We wouldn't be interested in a Northern Europe cruise if it was only France, Belgium, Holland etc and would need extra days off work/childcare duties to fit in a Canaries cruise.
  6. I wonder when any announcement will be made about the new maiden season if there are going to be significant changes?
  7. If you have a sweet tooth then yes, definitely give it a try. I haven't made it recently, but when I do I use the Gary Rhodes recipe. It's handy, but not essential, to have a free standing mixer as it needs a lot of whisking.
  8. I'm so glad you had quality time and cuddles with your Grandson 😊 Our little man learned to crawl while we were away and turned into a total Grandad's boy, only had eyes for him, even though it was me doing the 6am shifts 🤣
  9. Pastry base with a filling made from evaporated milk whisked with muscovado sugar, baked and often topped with chocolate strands, very very sweet.
  10. One of my friends is fairly new to Kent and she hadn't heard of it either. I used to make it myself but now it's just a rare treat from the local bakers. At school they used to dish it up with a slice of apple, as if that made it healthy 😂
  11. I think I will be in tears too! Thank you, it was very good to get away for a week.
  12. It was a medley from Mary Poppins, Phantom of the Opera and Les Mis, definitely worth a watch. I missed Phantom on The Shows Must Go On the first time around so I must watch it this time.
  13. I used to queue up for seconds [emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. We got back from Devon yesterday, had a real mix of weather, wonderfully stormy for a few days but a few sunny days too. I ate way too much and my diet starts tomorrow, [emoji4] don’t they all?! We did lots of walking too and I got good use out of the waterproof walking boots I had bought for our Norway cruise! Now back to the mounds of washing [emoji15] I don’t usually watch Britain’s Got Talent but heard on the radio that they had performances by some west end shows on last night’s programme, including Les Mis which is my favourite, so I watched that bit this afternoon and got quite emotional, made me realise how much I’m missing going to the theatre. One day..... Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. I hope you had a lovely time with your family today and I’m glad to hear you enjoyed your Devon holiday. We went to Exmoor zoo on Tuesday and got drenched, saw lots of the animals though. I hope you manage to find things to look forward to, some days out or chats/walks with friends and family. Sent from my iPad using Forums
