Saxophone Luka - La La Land Crafts GDT

Good morning peeps,
My baby girl has flown off to Egypt for her first "grown up" holiday with her friend Rachel, Jodie kept saying she felt all grown up going without any parents for the first time lol. I was a bit worried when Jode said they'd decided Egypt was where they wanted to go & the travel nurse she had to see for her jabs kept telling her how careful they need to be as the Egyptian men like pretty, blonde, fair skinned girls etc. I kept telling myself they would be fine & it was good for them to spread their wings & experience the world but then that word that freaks me out popped up "cruise"! CRUISE!!! OMG you are going to be on a ship for a week I screeched in a bizarrely high pitched voice lol. 

Some of you may remember I have a real thing about boats & fish so this did not go down well with mummy at all, Jode even swiped her passport out the drawer & hid it from me so it wouldn't mysteriously vanish lol. After a stressed night searching the Internet I am not at all happy as I can't find a good website to track this flipping ship like I could when she was on the ferry to Spain last year. I've joined loads of websites, Marine Tracker, Vessel Tracker, Vessel Finder etc to track & keep an eye on that flipping ship and they must have a rubbish Captain as he's not updated his current position for 4 days!!! So my baby girl is on a ship somewhere in the Red Sea & I don't know where & I want to know & be able to see that ship is moving or in port & not vanished off the radar & with my baby girl on it. I'm going to put Thomson on speed dial as I'll have to keep ringing that travel agent & harassing them instead which is their own fault for not having a good tracker on their flipping ship lol. I can see me having a week without sleep, I guess I could get more cards made though lol.
