Ooooh so that's why she's so clumsy...

So Cali is like super clumsy and is forever falling and tripping over things that are right in front of her. Now I know she's always been one of those kids tumbling over somewhere but after she had her adenoids and tonsils removed and grommets put in that was supposed to help improve her balance, but she's still all over the place. So as I had recently gone for a well overdue eye test I thought I'd take the kids to their first eye test. I thought that if her eyes were fine then I'd take her doctors again as the ENT doctor did say to inform them if her clumsiness gets worse. 
...........
Both of them actually did really well in their tests and did exactly as they were told and the staff at Specsavers were brilliant and very child friendly. OK so somehow Cali managed to break that little plastic thing you cover your eye with before you read the letters. Now RD read the letters perfectly but I noticed Cali was reading the smaller letters perfectly and the larger letters wrong. So it wasn't a huge shock when the optician said that she was long sighted and would need glasses.
...........
So that explains why she's always falling over things right in front of her face, because she literally cant see them. Yet she can see things in the distance. So she got to pick out 2 pairs of glasses and I made sure I boosted her confidence and told her how beautiful she looked in them just in case anyone was horrible or made fun of her at school (because we all know how kids can be sometimes) I also told her dad to call and reassure her of how great she looked in her glasses.
...........
As a lot of my family wear glasses and are short sighted I was concerned she would wear glasses forever (because I know she likes to lose things so that could potentially get very expensive) but the opticians said as she's long sighted and young and the prescription is quite weak that there's a possibility that her eyesight can correct itself and told me to make sure she doesn't wear them all day as she only needs them like reading glasses, so basically just at school and when she does her homework here. 
...........
Also luckily she got on well with them
at school I think because they were Avengers glasses everyone thought they were cool.

Over the water bungalows finally come to the Caribbean whoop whoop!

So normally you see cute little beach huts in places like The Maldives and Bali, where you basically have your very own luxury oasis in the middle of the ocean. But strangely you don't ever see it in the Caribbean, which is full of beaches and amazing places to put them. But Sandals are now looking to change this as they are planning to open 5 over the water bungalows on the private offshore island at its Royal Caribbean Resort in Jamaica.
...........
Now I've been past this resort (baring in mind this was years ago during my uni days) and was really impressed that the hotel had it's own private island as well as swim up lagoon suites. So these over the water bungalows  will be the perfect addition to an already super luxurious hotel. This will also be the 1st of it's kind in the Caribbean.
As you'd expect, these bungalows have everything in them so you won't even wanna leave; including a private outdoor jacuzzi tub and shower, a hammock for 2 that hangs over the water and steps leading from the sundeck straight into the ocean. They even feature glass floors so that you can enjoy the beauty of the ocean without even having to step foot outside. So as the kids wont be there you can get in lots of 'sexy time' *raises eyebrows while doing creepy laugh* Ooh nearly forgot you also get your own butler... very fancy :) 
...........
They do look gorgeous though, a fabulous getaway for you and your other half... which means I won't be going anytime soon... Well, actually it's not accepting bookings till November so I guess there's still time to find someone... *crickets*
So... to my future boyfriend, I'd like our 1st date to be here please, we might as well start as we mean to go on :)
