We’ve finally made a decision about where we’re going on holiday and it’s…
I think we’re more excited than Miss L. She’s been to Disneyland Paris, so has an idea of what to expect but it’s nothing like the extravaganza that is Walt Disney World Florida. I love Disney World and it’s nice to be able to take Miss L at the same age I had my first trip there. In fact the first time I went Epcot had only just opened, showing my age now!.
So we’ve chosen a resort thanks to the ever wonderful Tripadvisor, I’ll call the kennel tomorrow to book Betty in and I’m booking flights next week. Everything is arranged except for one thing which I’d not even considered….what on earth am I going to wear?
I was all prepared – jeans, t-shirts, merrills and fleeces – for Canada. But I don’t think that is going to work for Florida in July where it’ll be in the 90’s. We’ve not been on a holiday where somewhere hot since our honeymoon and that was Orlando in May. The UK hasn’t had a proper summer in years, so all my summer clothes have been either donated to charity/worn out/don’t fit!
First off I think I need to lose some weight as we’ll be doing a lot of hanging out poolside and I’ve not been near a pool in years, which is a bit scary. I have 10 weeks to lose 14lb which is needed and seems a reasonable amount of time to do it in… she says finishing off an easter egg! At least then some of my old summer clothes should then fit!. But I’ve had a surf this afternoon and I think that some of these pieces will make up my capsule travel wardrobe.
Throw in some vest tops, a sunhat, a linen top and a gallon of sunscreen and that’s my packing done
Right off now to get some more ideas of what to do when we’re there, I’ve just seen on the Nasa site that there is a launch of the new generation spaceships in July. The geek family is very happy!
