    No but i have seen them confiscated before as they are sharp.

    My dad had his nail clippers taken away from him before a flight to Tampa last year and they were just a small pair on his keys.

    I don't think anyone has been killed by a full size bottle of shampoo but I can't take that on the plane either

    I don't know I've seen some dodgy bottles of shampoo before. They blind you first then go in for the jugglar. I've even heard they go round in packs with mini nail clippers....don't be fooled. Grrrrr.....

    Yes, it is official I have completely lost it. :insane:

    Have a great trip Dawn, be safe and keep away from suspicious bottles of shampoo and don't forget the conditioner, this is the daddy of all vicious toiletries. :yes:

    You could technically take an eye out with nail clippers if you were that way inclined I guess.

    Saturday 31st July

    There has been this funny wet stuff coming down from the sky during the night. :unsure: It hasn't rained here for a couple of weeks.

    Steven had his first senior grade karate class last night. Talk about proud parent moment. He was easily the youngest one there and was completely overwhelmed by it all to begin with but he stuck at it and had a go. A couple of months ago he would have lasted 3 minutes before climbing on to my lap in tears. Last night he kept going for the whole hour and even put some of the seniors to shame during the final sprint session. :thumbsup:

    2 weeks today!!!! :mental: :mental: :mental:

    I really don't know where this last year has gone it doesn't seem that long ago since you were dancing about saying you were going and in 2 weeks you will be there. I'm surprised Steven hasn't burst with excitement by now :) enjoy every minute of your countdown :)

    Sunday 1st August

    And now I can say...

    I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD THIS MONTH!

    Have checked the Virgin Atlantic website and it appears we may be treated to a viewing of Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel. :mental:

    We could also get Avatar, 2012, Fantastic Mr Fox, and How to Train Your Dragon. :thumbsup:

    Food looks like beef, chicken or pasta.

    This time in 2 weeks we'll be in Walmart. :mental:

    Steven got a new official karate club monostrap backpack yesterday so that's his new hand luggage. I want one.

    The bags are out of the loft.

    Adrian got our currency yesterday. :mental: :mental: :mental:

    A yellow poncho.
    My Grumpy waistpack
    A 1999 WDW waistpack

    And best of all...

    Mine and Adrian's WDW sunglasses cases. :mental:
