snow...ahhhh....why does the uk come to a halt...im sure it didnt when i was a kid...and it definatly snowed more...lol
kids had a snow day on Thurs...they were hoping for friday too to make it a long long weekend...no such luck! more or less pretty much gone here...cant say it made too much trouble for us personally...although i was asked to work on Thursday because one of my clooegues couldnt get in because of the snow...which i thought was funny as i had to pass her house to get to work...and ...gues what...no problems on the road! it amazes me how ppl get away with that crap...lol

but apart from that...we are starting 'cruise organising' proper now....designing magnets for the door...sorting out FE gifts...DD(14) is working on our playlist for our CD...seriously thinking about pirate costumes...looking at excursions....its all beginning to come together. well...almost

ofcourse we have the rest of our holiday to sort out too...still havent booked hotels in NY or MCO yet...keep praying the £ will rally...although i might have to give up soon and just get on with it

I totally agree with the comment that we all booked this cruise well before the current recession. And I'm so glad that we did. I know what you all mean about booking future vacations. We're just doing a 4-day cruise in the summer of 2010. We were looking at the those 5-night Wonder cruises but the price was just outrageous for that extra day. Not worth it.

I did hear about the snow in the UK. Amazing. I thought you all had been having a fairly quiet winter. Scary about those wildfires in Australia.

In terms of where we go skiing......locally we go to Camelback in eastern PA. We have season passes there. Then twice a year we go to Smuggler's Notch resort in northern VT. If Disney built a ski resort they would model it after Smuggler's. In fact, Disney and Smuggler's run a family fun weekend once a year.

It has helped tremendously that gas prices have come down so much since we do a lot of driving going back/forth to the ski resorts.

I would love to learn to scuba dive. The kids are interested but DH is not so we're sticking to snorkeling.

It's been our worst winter for snow in 20 years, but it's still nothing like the real snow you get in the States. After 24 hours it had stopped snowing, and - in our area anyway - froze, and then turned to slush. It's more that our country just isn't set up to deal with it, and so the whole infrastructure grinds to a halt!

But then, the same thing happens if the wrong sorts of leaves fall onto train tracks, or the wrong sort of sun causes roads to melt, or it's a day with a 'Y' in it.

I guess I'm in the minority in that I booked the cruise this year, but I'm fortunate in that I signed a year's contract on a job at the end of last year. Plus, we know this is going to be our last ever big family holiday with the kids - they're just getting too old to come away with us (or, at least, to come away with us and not spend the whole time griping!) - so we wanted to tighten our belts, and do something really special.

Hi All,

as Maria says, I am still playing with my designs. Here's the latest and the previous two just for reference.





If you have any ideas let me know and I will have a play.
Dave

They all look great Dave, I am useless at design. Personally I prefer the 1st 2, writing not as clear to read on new one.

Maria said you were still looking for a hotel in Orlando, how many nights for? Universal hotels have a fantastic offer on just now pay for 4 stay for 7, just prices up Hard rock for someone £49/night or about £71 for club level which is a bargain http://www.hardrockhotelorlando.com/...vel_rooms.html

I am sorry if I am repeating myself, trying to play with this at work (night shift RN) Just saying hello to all and can't wait. This will be our second Disney Cruise with DH, DS 12 and 4. Double checking the theme, we are using chili peppers? My name is Marianne by the way

Welcome, Marianne. It looks like the name for our group was chosen more than a year ago, so let's just find fun ways to use the logo.

I certainly agree with you on the 'can't wait' part - twenty six weeks from right now I'll be at work impatiently thinking about my flights the very next day. I am so impatient I wish I was going tomorrow!

And for me the stress has already started. I booked flights with frequent flier miles, and the only non-overnight flight option it gave me involves a 36 minute layover in Atlanta. If the arriving and departing flights are in different terminals we may not make the connection. I initially figured five minutes to get off the plane and 20 minutes to get to the next gate shouldn't be a terribly big deal if we are on time, but checking Delta's website I see the flight to Orlando frequently leaves 8-10 minutes early. I don't want to spend a night in Orlando!
