Stripes On Tour

Previously on Spottyís holiday ÖÖ

The night before (
The Journey (
Me first full day (
Thereíd better not be any queues (

Weíve time fer a coffee

When I woke at 3am I was surprised how tired I was, so turned over a went back to sleep figurin I deserve a lie-in. Woke again at 5 , still a bit tired, and dozed till 6. (donít sleep and wakin times help to fill out a borin report :) )

Itís Epcot today and a later start so Iíve left the others to regain their strength. I canít have them droppin at 7 o clock every night. Our poor Julie literally walked round Premium Outlets last night with her little eyes closed.

I brought me notebook to the foodcourt at 6.30 and have been sittin here with me refillable coffee and disposable thoughts writin up the drivel you might have just read. Now I donít have to drag them up and out by 7.15 (our usual early entry start) Iíve enjoyed just sittin here on me own writin me report notes and singin along to the Disney Songs they play here all day Ė the tape lasts two hours by the way! This relaxed way of holidayin is certainly new to me and Iím amazed how much Iím enjoyin it. Havenít even fallen out with the wife yet ( thatís seen to todayís peace then!)

I popped back to the room at 8.45 and they were up and ready for Ponderosa.
ďYer jokin arenít yer?Ē
I want to be at Epcot fer 10am opening. Weíve got lots to do today and weíre stayin fer Reflections. Iíll get them an ice-cream cookie- thatíll do fer breakfast.

Right, itís 9.30 now and theyíd better be ready. See yers later.

That really brought back memories of sitting in the food court at ASMO, or by the pool, early in the morning with a coffee and lemon & poppyseed muffin, writing up my TR notes...thanks Dave :D

Hey, where's the rest of it? ;)
I can't stand the suspense, will it be an item by item description of the Ponderosa buffet or the arrival at Epcot??
