    Marks and Spencers

  2. Hi We flew out in November last year and we were 38 kilos over (Please dont ask what we had in our suitcases) and we all had the extra baggage allowance, Singapore airlines wanted £35.00 a kilo OMG I hear you say well thats what my husband said. Needless to say we didnt pay it and we had to send it at the aiprort as extra baggage and it followed us on to Brisbane a week later. Joanne

    Leaving celebrations or not?

    Thanks Karen I can feel a trip to Lakeside comming on, the party seemed like a good idea at the time, but I am not so sure now with a day to go, those inflatable kangaroos and hats with corks on seemed really funny at the time but i'm not so sure. Joanne xx
