We've just booked a week in September to take Jamie across to Northern Ireland for the first time and I'm rather excited about it, not least because we're going on the Liverpool-Belfast ferry.
It's twenty years since I last made that trip. It takes eight and a half hours and the onboard facilities were, in those days, very good. Hopefully they'll be even better now.
The original plan was to travel overnight but it's extortionately expensive so we're now sailing at 10.30 in the morning.
On the plus side, although cabins are stupidly priced at night, they're really cheap during the day so we've bagged ourselves a four-birth en-suite room both there and back.
I'm praying we'll have a porthole and I'm already on the lookout for a baby Captain's hat.
Did I mention how excited I am about this?! (Oh yes, sorry, I did).
