My Arabella turned 18 last week and gets her A-level results today :tigger: She has met a few other Arabellas over the years but not many. I think it is becoming more popular now. I was at high school with about 12 other Claires so wanted something a bit different :-)

    Good luck to her. My Arabella is only 6, so she’s got a ways to go before A levels...

    Awww! It is a long way but it sure goes fast. DVC helps to make more memories though. My two are 18 and 15 and still just as excited as they were at 9 and 6 the first time we went. Just in the process of planning to "go home" to BLT next August. Waiting now for the flight and accommodation windows to open in a few days/weeks. Would have gone this summer as we go every 3 years but DD managed to get on to the World Scout Jamboree so has just returned from 3 amazing weeks in the US while the rest of us got rained on at home.

    Nice! We go next Weds, we've got a Treehouse Villa at SSR for a few days (due to a late change in the programme) and then home to Poly for a week, and then a beach week in Anna Maria. Hopefully my 2 will still be excited to go in 10 years. Ours were a bit younger when they started at 3 and 1.

    OMG !! well 9 years on and somethings have changed!! Married 35 years, now have 5 grandchildren! aged 12, 9, 8, 2, 11 months all from the eldest daughter!
    we don't do the parks so much anymore, we prefer to do road trips, last big one was route 66 chicago to santa monica. we also love going to the keys, I just love Key West, its so diverse I love it!! we take 2 of the eldest grandkids on holiday and stay at a wdw resort, it gives them respite from their autistic brother
    I work in a care home for ladies who have learning difficulties and autism , I've been there over 7 years now and love it.

    Hi Jeanette, great to see you post again. time flies doesn't it? Married 31 years for us but no Grandchildren yet. Matt is living in Vienna with his Dutch partner so you never know.
    We rarely go into DisneyWorld anymore, outpriced me years ago, although we did over 40 trips there so it was time to do other things, like you enjoying road trips and have the same love of Key West, been 3 times to stay and on cruises for the day, can't wait to go back.
    Glad to see you are enjoying work, I have loved being a florist since I was 15, now 53, owned my own business 31 years but trying to sell and retire, I have done my fair share.

    HI Wayne, ye
    s the time flies!!!
    The only time we go to the parks is with the grandkids, and that's been twice over 4 yrs.
    your right it is overpriced and I also feel that some of the magic has gone, its all about disney making money on everything, its not very enjoyable in the parks like it was 20 odd yrs ago. we went to key west first about 10 yrs ago and then back again for a couple of weeks for my 50th, we then went on the back end of finishing route 66, 4 days there, but had nothing but rain and a 24 hr delay getting home, a right nightmare!
    nice to hear about Matt, the last time I read he was going to uni in the usa!
    take care and good luck selling up!

    Long story but we got him settled at the Uni of New Hampshire, turned out to be the wrong course for what he wanted to do so he got a flight home and finished his degree at Lancaster, he then did a masters and a PhD. Moved to Vienna this year to start a 6 year contract, in his words "Assistant Professor @ Institute for English Business Communication. Working on corpus approaches to deception, @ShakespeareLang and politeness."
    If I don't sell the business I am doing 2 more Mothers days then shutting down to retire Mar 2022.

    Hi, welcome!
    You're not that far from where I am (Coventry area).
    We go to Birmingham quite a lot (well, not now, off course).

    Not voluntering, but I do cat-sitting once in a while since last year. I adore cats! We can't have one of our own, so this was the next best thing.
