New York, New York

Well, I've only gone and done it! The New York trip is well and truly booked. The hotel accommodation and flights have been booked for a while, but we have now booked the boring stuff of travel insurance, airport parking and sorted the transfers to and from JFK. I'm excited! In fact, I'm more than excited - I'm super, super excited!

Going to Times Square on New Years Eve is going to be a nightmare though. Viewing places start filling up from mid afternoon and by 10:30pm last year, everywhere was full. A million people are expected to attend this year, so it's going to be a tight squeeze there! Wonderful rules and regulations state no public toilets or food vendors are available within Times Square. Back packs and any bags are also not allowed, which is going to be fun - guess we will have to eat before we queue!

I've decided not to do the Trapeze School. I injured my back about ten years ago and damaged my disc. It repaired itself over time, but unfortunately I managed to injury it again this Summer and I don't want to risk doing any further damage to it, before it's had time to repair itself again. I'm not too bothered though, as we are only there for four days and we are already packing in quite alot.

I can't wait to do this, but most of all, I can't wait for next year and a whole host of new tasks to complete!

Yea! Love NYC! I'm making my list but I only have 6 months for mine so it will carry over to my 41st birthday LOL... More like a year and a half list. Blame it on the economy. Merry Christmas!
