Anyway I am finding it really hard to keep the secret from him! He is 10 (11 on Sunday) and myself and my bf aren't telling him that he is going to DLP on Jan 2nd with us and my 17 year old brother until Christmas morning!

But I am so so so excited!!! I think I need to distance myself from Disney and then perhaps I wont feel as excited... But I doubt that will happen

What do you guys do to try keep the secret as long as possible??? I havent even told him that myself and my bf are going in January... We have gone the last 2 Januarys too. Maybe if I let it slip that me and my bf are going again then i will be able to talk about Disney without actually telling him we are going.

But then again it would probably be better not to say a word!

If only I could forget about the trip for 3 months
I know how you feel!!
DD keeps seeing the ads and begging to save up and go - the new ad convinced her that you can go in the school holidays, like its a fact! No Mam we can go, the telly says so! And i rain on her parade and say with no money!?!?!
Little does she know *insert sneaky smiley here*
Just think about the excitement of the reveal and stay using disboards to keep your excitement going and we'll be your Disney outlet!
Me and DP only chat about it when we're on a night out and tipsy and safe from prying ears!!
I do update him everyday on our holiday countdown but its that hes just not that into DLP. Can you fathom that?!!? He must have had a very fulfilling childhood as I turn into the biggest kid at the thoughts of getting back to the magic!
Hold tight on the secret, it'll be worth it

Morning all

I settled my account with my solicitor yesterday for the house i'm buying, sent the deposit too (that was painful ) so its just waiting to exchange contracts & complete. Looks like we will complete on the 29th September, my dad will have to collect the keys as i'm on nights but will have a few days off after that to slowly move in. Hope to be completely by mid October as I have some move leave booked to sort out everything.

Need to get a holiday booked soon as I will not be going to the States in October as planned due to my mate not being able to go then. A bit gutted but it gives me time to save a bit more & have a nice holiday next year

Excited & nervous but I will be fine once settled. It is a shame about the US but will look at it again next year, would have been able to go this year if my friend got 2 weeks off instead of 1 (she is a teacher) as she needs to be home for something in the middle of what would have been our holiday. Oh well might try & squeeze another Disney trip in instead. Its a blessing really as the prices were coming out double to what we paid last year & I didn't really want to spend loads.

Great news!! We should exchange tomorrow and have a completion date of Monday 26th. We'll be doing the whole move in the morning but hopefully should be able to finish all the packing over the weekend before. I think we'll be unpacking for a while!!!

Evening all

Any nice plans for the weekend?
Today is my sisters 40th birthday so I was up early for her surprise... You see shes been mad after an Audi TT for years and her husband worked every hour of overtime he could get for the last few months and got her a beeeeeautiful 2000 one! Its gorgeous. She cried and jumped around the house for ages! Im so happy for her, shes caring and selfless and always worrying about her 5 siblings and Im delighted she had her dream come true. Shes off away to a spa for the weekend with her hubbie which was our gift.

Im keeping it quiet this weekend. Theres a book fair on in my town and Im after spending far too much money on books today so I think I wont be stirring outside the door all weekend!

Happy Friday

awwww that's lovely for your sister

I'm keeping it low key this weekend too, I have to pay the balance of our DLP trip in a few weeks and since I only decided on this trip a month ago I've had to keep the purse strings tight!

What a great birthday your sister's having, Kizzabelle.

I'm having a quiet weekend too - DH is working overtime both days but on the plus side it means more for the holiday pot.

I know what you mean kizzabel it seems there's always something to pay out for, no matter what I set aside I feel like I'm having to dip into it every month I would love to sell up and downsize or relocate sadly I'd lose too much money at the moment but running a big house on one wage is a challenge to say the least!

Glad your sister's making the most of it, why not especially before the weather turns too much, I have a feeling we're in for an early and cold winter
