I hope you can. I really like it. Mmm. Salivating just by thinking about it. Hehe.

I love your new haircut/colour. It looks so lovely on you.

I love Phantom Manor. My brother's not so keen unfortunately so I don't get a ride on it every time we go to DLRP.

Your dad's stroller accident sounds painful. Mum has a replacement knee since June and it's still a pain in the knee so far. (yes, I love silly puns).

I'm glad I made it back on the boards to follow your TR. Happy holidays!

I completely read this as "exploitation" and not "exPLORation"! I thought "Now what and how did they exploit that castle!! I immediatley went back and re-read it correctly but I really could see you guys expoiting it somehow!!! JK

I loved the iasw!! I am so happy you went ahead and posted the extra pictures!! And the Haunted Mansion sounds interesting but in a good way! Finally, sorry your dad got ran over by the stroller. Obviously some things know no country boundaries!!

I love how Pinocchio is all sweet and cute on the outside...pretty adorable actually and then all scary and sinister inside...(hmmm I'm not sure what that says about me...) It's kind of like the switch and bait you get to a lesser extent with Splash Mountain... especially in Florida... you know all cute and sweet and musical... until you reach those cackling vultures before you go up that hill and down the falls...(I have a very conflicted relationship with SM)

Anyhow...Fox and Hound...

I hope your Dad feels better in your subsequent updates... strollers can be very violent ... you should have to be licensed...

A drunk, French version of Stacey... boggles the mind...

I got run over by a stroller in Germany once. They can't drive strollers either. The worst of it was that I had jumped back on the curb to get out of their way, and then got yelled at in German for being in the way. Your dad and I can form a Stroller Survivors club.
Pinocchio is a fun ride! I'm glad you did the Haunted Manor again, that thing is so awesome. And lunch looks yummy!

If anyone from the US is combining a trip to DLP with a visit to the UK, just to let you know you can change currency commission free at the Post office, and they generally have a very good rate (better than the Bureau de Changes) so you could wait and change your money here (or get extra) - just so you know! (Some central London shops and some in the airports do take Euros as well, but plan to use ££ in the UK for safety.)

Still loving your report! And its confirmed I was definitely too frugal in DLRP - not like me at all

Hi guys!

I wanted to come and let you guys know that I am so sorry I've been gone for a while. I don't know exactly when I'm going to get back on to start updating, but rest assured I absolutely will.

I was in a car accident on December 26th. Those of you who are Facebook friends with me likely saw.

I'm okay. I had whiplash and some minor injuries. The hardest part has been my knee. It jammed into the door and dashboard upon impact. It's slowly getting better, but it's been difficult losing this momentum at the gym.

The accident was not my fault, but there has been significant damage to my poor brand new car. I bought this car in September. It's a sad state of affairs. His insurance company is covering everything, but so far there is over $10,000 of estimated damage.

On top of this happening to me, my grandma has been deteriorating and has finally settled on hospice care. It's been a struggle so far, but she's hanging in there. Any thoughts or prayers would be appreciated.

We're hanging in there, but with everything and work included, I just have not had the energy to keep up with my TR's and haven't been able to keep up on the DIS in general. I'll be back though I promise! Just hang in there friends! I appreciate all of your support.

Glad you're mostly ok after your accident, hopefully your knee makes a quick recovery from here. And I hope your car gets sorted out nice and quick too.

Sorry to hear about your grandma. I'll be thinking of her and your family

So sorry-such an awful thing to happen just after Xmas. Glad you are OK though despite the ongoing knee etc and car. It could always have been worse. Sorry about your grandma too-always sad when this has to happen. Thinking of you all.

Hope your knee is on the mend! Have you tried to find an exercise class (or DVD) with chair-based exercises? Rosemary Conley does one (or it might be part of a longer one) and it will keep you in the loop.


Sorry to hear about your grandma. My grandad ended his days in a hospice and actually had a far more peaceful time than my poor father who was adamant he wanted to stay in his own home (he was only 56). The quality of the care is so good, and managing the pain is better when there are professionals on hand every minute.

P&PD to you and your family at this difficult time.
