SHE DOESNT KNOW THE HALF OF IT! NYC/Orlando - August 2015 Update 2nd Aug Nearly there

Shhhh and she STILL doesnt know the half of it !


We now have 11 days and 14hrs (if my countdown is right at the point when I started this)


I cannot believe but I am over the moon- that we have still managed to keep the secret from Emily about New York.

So, whats happened since my last update?

As predicted my DD and her boyfriend came to stay a few days before flying off to Tenerife and yes I ended up doing the holiday washing before they went back home.

What wasnt predicted was that they got engaged whilst they were out there so happy for them.


Got a refund on my return bubble seats from Virgin as they said I would. I have previously booked and paid for them and they told me to call back at 60 days before the return and they would refund me I wasnt convinced but rang them and they refunded and I still have the bubble seats (this is course was due to the fact that we had booked before November.

Mum had a fab time cruising around Madeira and the Azors although towards the end half of the ship came down with Noro Virus (mum was ok thank goodness)




Fastpasses all done (obviously not 7DMT didnt bother trying) to be honest once I had done the first day I was ok.

We have swapped our first day in Orlando from MK to Aquatica a couple of reasons one is that the scaffolding/fence thingy doesnt come down, I understand, from the Castle ramps until the 19th and also I figure we are going to need a chill day after 5 hectic ones in New York.

Emily has been out for a meal this afternoon with friends so I have taken the opportunity to print everything off at home and get ready her present for on the shuttle when she finds out the proper plans I have also made us some badges.

Got a busy week and a half at work getting things in order but by lunchtime next Thursday I will have switched off I dont actually finish until 3.30pm but I need to go on the office Cake Run in the afternoon as I am away for my birthday and I will never hear the last of it if I dont get cakes before I go.

Im hoping that the weather picks up before we arrive. I dont mind a bit of rain and have been at other times of the year when you have those mega downpours for a short while but at the moment its seeming quite often and prolonged.

Thanks for reading along thats if you still are.

Looking forward to reading everybodys trippies coming up as there seems to be lots of us heading stateside in August

You've done really well to keep secret from Emily I'm sure she'll be over the moon when she finds out 🌙 we too are heading out very soon & have been keeping a close eye on the weather forecast. Have been in August before & only short downpours as u said but looks torrential 💦☔️ Let's hope the sun shines for us but nothing can dampen the mood I suppose once your there ⭐️

I can't believe you've kept it a secret for so long, you must be ready to burst.

We went to Disneyland Paris earlier in the year, for 3 months I let my boyfriend think we were staying at Santa Fe when it was really the Disneyland Hotel. I am not good with secrets and it was painful to keep that one. By the end I'd convinced myself that he knew, but he didn't .

Have an amazing trip.

Oh crikey! She works in Lidl. I'm sure you will probably know someone who knows her - she's the one that no-one can understand because she doesn't have a Scottish accent
