But who'd ever think to look for me here? Our PTR And now TR
In the words of Alice "If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?".
And this trip makes about as much sense as that!
So here we are with 34 sleeps to go, myself and a very Alice besotted DD writing our pre trip report!
This trip came out of no where. I had signed up for a rewards club from my phone network provider and thought Oooh freebies and not much about it since but then when the goodies were being dished out we discovered I was eligible for free flights to Europe and yes, Paris was on the list! So with a bit of cajoling and ringing about two weeks ago we found out we had gotten flights to Beauvais for two weeks before Jemma's 7th birthday and well it certainly would be rude to visit Disneyland Paris.
Queen of Hearts: "And who is this?"
King of Hearts: "Let me see, my dear. It's certainly not a heart. Do you suppose it's a club?"
Heres our PTR:

Love the Alice theme to the PTR very clever :)
Looking forward to reading this TR already x
Thanks Leanne, I showed DD your ptr and she said Mammy we HAVE to read that TR. Shes a new disboards convert methinks. All set?
Yeah all set I have been sorting out the music and videos on the I pods and I pad today already for the journey. Hopefully the Toy Story 1 and 2 Tangled, Chipmunks 1 and 2 and 8 episdodes of Mickey Mouseclubhouse will keep her entertained lol!
The 2 photos of you are lovely what a pretty lady you are.
I would love to trip together, would be nice to be amongst like minded people as opposed to DH who just doesnt get it (but is dragged along anyway!)
Oh gosh its amazing what a bit of make up, tan and backcombing can do!! Lol I look like a wreck normally :rotfl: but TY.
I have gotten Jem a princess activity book for the journey but shes normally so excited on the way that the time fillers dont get looked at until the way home when shes feeling a bit sad and time is dragging.
I have a few bits and pieces to take snaps of so hopefully I will have an update on Tuesday morning with a pic of her bits and bobs. I must say I havent a huge amount to do before we go. I have most of her clothes organised (have to find my swimming togs) and theres not much that I have to buy. Just have to sort logistics for getting to and from the airport. 29 Sleeps :cool1:
Oh I'll miss your next update because I will be in DISNEYLAND PARIS!!! So excited not pleased about he weather though :(
Look at your ticker :hyper:
Hope you have a fab time and cant wait to read all about it
BIG update to follow tonight or tomorrow pixiedust:
Jemma looks so like you!
Happy Halloween Trip Planning! :goodvibes
Looking forward to this big update! Is that you have added 2 to the booking me and Elsie ;) xxx
Lol Leanne, I tried but I'd not gotten your passport numbers :(
Thanks Jenny, I'm getting that alot lately! And I would have said she was like her Daddy but if everyones saying it, it must be true!
Update is on the way, just waiting on photobucket to stop acting up!
Curiouser and Curiouser
The Caterpillar: "Who are YOU?"
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation.
Alice: "I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then."
And so the plot thickens!
The Cast has expanded! My best friend Elaine called down for our weekly chinwag and cuppa and tells me shes on hols from October 22nd and doesnt know what to do with herself. I told her that was the day myself and DD were off to DLP and all she said was "Get the laptop". So 20 minutes later she had booked some extremely good value flights to accompany us! Her flights came in at €90 and RS Transport added her on for the princely sum of €36 and she has her AP so its a bargain! We will add her onto the room at Dream Castle when we arrive :cool1::cool1::cool1: Myself and DD are so so so excited. Elaine comes everywhere with us and has done 3 DLP trips with us already and DD is mad about her so the trip is getting more and more exciting and surprising by the second.
Alice: "Curiouser and curiouser!"
And on to DDs swag which she knows nothing about, bar the clothes :goodvibes
Her new Minnie jumper and princess bracelet and charms
Her photo album (€1 - bargain) which I filled with pics of her!
Her surprise lanyard and a few pins I picked her up and her Alice dress
Her new Tesco tees and a pin I picked up for Elaine
And her Princess activity book for the plane
We are rethinking our meal plans at the minute so I'll be back with another update soon :coffee:
This day two weeks we shall be in Dublin trying to sleep before our early start!! :cheer2::cheer2:
I love love love that minne jumper!
How exciting your friend is conning too x
Excellent!! That's so exciting & now you have someone else to share your excitement and planning!
I see you've had fun in the shops too! :-)
Elaine has her bag packed already! Its great that shes a big kid too! I dread to think of when she has her own children, I'd say she'll just move to France and be done with it!
We are planning it to death, just after having a very serious conversation about the merits of ordering kids meals at lunchtime at the CS! I think saving those precious euros at lunchtime may justify all the shopping in the run up to the trip!
