Birthday surprise

I've got a big birthday coming up in 4 weeks time. Yesterday my DH surprised me with flights booked for flying on my actual birthday

At first I thought do I want to sit on a plane on that day but when he said he'd booked UC both ways I decided I'd be just fine

I know one of my sons isn't here on my birthday anyway so got a feeling something's being arranged for the weekend before, they all turned up today and did a lot of whispering!

My DH has left me to do the accommodation planning, said he thought I'd rather choose and I'm better at it

Managed (through a wonderful Dibber) to book DVC points at SSR for first night which is great as we can both have a tipple or two and take the magical express.

Now just got to organise 13 more nights accommodation, car hire, train, airport hotel on his credit card

Thanks everyone, such lovely messages.

TBH I'd told him I didn't want to go away but, now that it's booked and we're going so soon, I'm looking forward to it.

Booked so far:
train to Manchester airport day before
Radisson blu hotel with runway view
day 1 at SSR with ME
days 4 to 14 in a villa with a lake view we've stayed in before.
Currency ordered to pick up tomorrow

Just need to book days 2 and 3 accommodation and the car hire. We don't need airport parking as we'll be picked up at Heathrow on landing.

We already have Estas and passports in date. Booked a couple of meals but haven't got any park tickets as think I'm happy to just sit by a pool (if it's warm enough) and, if not, do lots of shopping.

Really hope I've remembered everything.
