The Best New Year's Eve Ever ~ Part Two ~ Day Nine

Castmembers



Mandy (me), Paul (hubby) & Becky (DD16)

Monday 4th January '10 ~ High 53 ~ Sunny

I woke up this morning with a banging headache and I felt much worse than I did after our New Year's Eve antics, and then I realised that although we hadn't drank as much as NYE, we hadn't eaten since 11ish the previous day

Thankfully we all had a lie in today as Becky wanted to go shopping

Around 11am we got in the car and drove to Festival Bay where Bek bought a couple of t-shirts from Hot Topic and Paul got a long sleeved top in Ron Jon's

After Festival Bay we popped into the China Jade on I-Drive as we fancied a Chinese buffet for lunch. We hadn't been here for a few years, and I doubt we'll be in any hurry to go back as we weren't impressed with the food at all

Once back at the Pop, we had a lazy afternoon at the resort. Paul & I wandered around the Pop taking photos and then found a warm spot by the big pool. Now don't be fooled by these photos, I may only be in shorts and strappy top, but you won't see my granny cardigan that I whipped off at the last moment while Paul took a quick photo. It was a lovely sunny afternoon, but there was a chilly wind too


Our sun loungers







In the evening Becky spent some time with Kerry and Bex, and they went off to play in the arcade, so me & Paul went to the Magic Kingdom to take some photos of the Wishes fireworks











When we got back to the Pop, we had a late dinner, but no Captain Mai Tai's as Petals pool bar was 'closed due to inclement weather' so we just had an early night

I would have gone down to reception in my robe and slippers
I can't decide if it's sweet or sinister

very impulsive, which doesn’t bode well for our credit cards!

Glad to hear your headache didn't last.

And I love the pics of the big toys. Can anyone go here and get pics or are they just for the guest?
