Never thought I'd get him to DLP twice in 6 months - yay for APs!

Also thought I'd join the chat thread as I hang around here so/too much!

This time next week I'll have left my job - then a week off (including DLP ) before I start a whole new job - bit nervous! Good excuse for new clothes shopping through right?
Good luck with your new job

I didn't think I'd like Toy Story Playland after not being very impressed with the concept art but I LOVED it! Hope you like it too.

Congratulations on the new job and hey, who needs an excuse for clothes shopping, one can never have too many clothes ... or shoes ... or Disney holidays .....

Morning all

Laura, sorry to hear about your Aunt. Its difficult losing a relative, even if ye werent that close. Anorexia is an awful infliction and it seems like so many people never toatlly shake it off. I hope things look up and that your ankle heals soon. Its a nasty injury... Managed to do mine in on Phantom Manor But 1st aid in the Village had me bandaged up and full of pain relief soon after and I soldiered on!

Congrats Nikki on the house being done and dusted and all yours! Great news! Have you got your colour charts out yet? Thats my favourite bit! I wouldnt ask your Dad to help though.... Ive been waiting months for him to put down my floor

Congrats smallpig on the new job. Is it a different career then what youre currently doing?

I got all my Santa shopping done last night!!! Im delighted, love being organised and am so happy with what DD and DS will wake up to on Christmas Day
Girls toys seemed alot dearer but Ds's toys are definately louder/noisier!! Have a feeling his guitar might just lose its batteries on Dec 27th when the hangover from our annual St Stephens (Boxing Day) night out has kicked in!

Definitely not - although shopping for winter clothes seems very odd in this weekend's heat!

Thanks! It's the same sort of job (PR) but for a company rather than an agency, looking forward to a change of scenery!

That is very organised! You must be good at keeping them hidden!

I'm not changing the scheme too much. I was a little disappointed yesterday due to finding out I need to paint more then originally planned & that they didn't both to cut the grass for months it seems, it didn't help I had only had 2 hours sleep after night shifts. Today i'm a lot more positive, we have been round to do the lawn. My dad must have got lost when sent to do your flooring

Love the comment about the toys, i'm happy to buy my niece & nephew the noisiest toys to take home but if I have kids my sister will repay the favour

Theyre in the attic in my mams! we spent ages playing with them this morning like two kids! mam was telling me all about when we were small and the neighbours used call after midnight mass and have a few too many drinks and help put the toys together.... hence many of them were wrong/dodgy on Christmas morning methinks!

Hope everyone's doing well, so lovely to see lot's of tickers getting closer we've gone in under 2 months now, I can't believe it. Really looking forward to all the trip reports

Off to Paris on Wednesday, no dlp sadly but am sure it'll be great, will miss dd loads. I'm trying to show restraint and not go to Disney Village but will probably pop into the Disney Store, can I use my shareholders discount or will I cause chaos?

Hey everyone! It's been a while so I hope you're all well

I moved in with my new housemates and started university week before last, so things have been a little emotional. However I've been keeping myself preoccupied with the thought that it's just over two months until our trip to DLP! In fact this afternoon after my lecture I made a little inventory of all the little bits and pieces that I've been compiling for our holiday.



I've been collecting shirts through eBay and Disney Store sales, however now that I've hit five I'm telling myself no more! The heel clips are for my birthday meal at Inventions and in a moment of whimsy my boyfriend bought us a pair of his'n'hers mugs (he's usually a bit of a cynic!). I remembered the dig out the ears before moving, I've been wearing them since 2006 so it would have been a shame to had they been forgotten!

Wonder if you'll weaken?

Yes, you can use your shareholders card to get discount - I used mine in Rome without any problems.

Finished my job today- weird to not be going back again! Now a few days off to chill out and prepare for Disney!

Trying to decide if we should get some kind of fun costume/accessory for the Halloween party...!

Afternoon all. What's everyone's plans for the weekend?

I will hopefully be moved into my house by Monday, all the work needed to be done has been completed. Had the phone & internet installed today just need to get my tv & bedroom furniture down & then I can move in. I will post some photos once i'm in.

Off to France tomorrow for the day, sadly not Disney but might be able to squeeze a day trip in before Christmas if funds allow
