    Happy Hogmanay! From a fellow Scot :lovestruc


    I discovered your TR yesterday and had caught up by teatime! I haven’t been so into a TR since I quietly used to lurk on pkondz trip reports. I got addicted to those.

    What a lovely writing style you have, I am really loving your report! I love how you have then and now photos of your children that’s so lovely.
    How exciting that you got to be grand marshals! That is really magical!
    I head back to WDW this October as I also work in education and have to stick to school holidays and I can’t wait.

    I love Alfie, I just knew as I was reading he had found his forever home. :hug:

    Thanks Sarah - great to welcome a fellow Scot. We had a quiet Hogmanay - what about you?

    :welcome: I'm so pleased you have joined in. I'm glad you are enjoying it. I hope you have come out of lurkdom on pkondz's report - he will make you very welcome.

    Thanks - that's kind of you to say so! I think holidays are one of the few times I now get photos of the children - it is lovely to look back a few years.


    It was truly magical!


    That's fantastic news! Do you get 2 weeks in October? There is so much to plan - how are the plans going?

    He is adorable - he just loves being petted. How could we let him go and live with anyone else when he'd already found his home?

    :hug: So sorry to hear about your loss - that is so hard. How is the new pup doing?

    That is great you had a good Hogmanay. Pitlochry is in such a lovely part of Scotland.
    Sounds like your Disney plans are coming along well. I keep campaigning to get 2 weeks in October. I have even suggested giving up the September weekend and May day holidays.

    Hi Megan! I've enjoyed seeing your photos on Instagram. It looked like it got very cold. It's going to be a busy year - We were back to school on Thursday. Hannah has her 'Prelim exams' over the next 2 weeks which are basically practice exams prior to the real ones in May. She has been studying hard over the holidays. Wishing you and Nathan a good 2018.

    We had a nice Christmas. I really need to find the time to work on our report.

    Looks nice, especially the fruit.

    Good choice.

    Bummer, at least it was close.

    We waited about 35 minutes in 2015 to see Baymax. Love him.

    I'm sure your car was fabulous. Maybe the world is just not ready for the innovation of your car design.

    Well, it certainly wasn't going to win any road races. ;) Then again, Steppe's touring style has certainly changed in the last few years. LOL!

    Glad to hear you had a good Christmas. Don't worry -I don't have spare time for anything at the moment. Survival is what it's about!

    I do like breakfast on the balcony. It was great to have fruit - Peter particularly likes water melon and Hannah was a big blueberry fan.

    He's great - I think Hiro was a big draw that first time. I must watch Big Hero 6 again sometime.

    Life Update: April 2018

    Here's hoping Winter is finally behind us.

    [​IMG]

    We certainly had a lot more snow this year. We even had snow days at school which is unheard of for us.

    [​IMG]


    Hannah got the fun of playing Thing One in her Youth Theatre's production of Seussical the Musical.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Alfie has been with us for a year now and has mastered the art of relaxation.

    [​IMG]


    This afternoon Peter and I went to an open training session for the rugby team we support. It was a really good afternoon.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We got to meet the players after the training session.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Just for good measure I will include an American player. He certainly is of good measure - 6ft 7. Peter has a bit of catching up to do.

    [​IMG]

    Sorry Canadian friends - I was hoping we would meet DTH our recently re-signed Canadian but he didn't appear at the end. Maybe Pete will have better luck after the match this weekend.

    My apologies for being missing in action. Life just now is revolving around Hannah studying for her exams in May. These are the ones that count in terms of entrance requirements for university. Unfortunately, my photos are all stored on the laptop she is using. I will do my best to get an update at some stage. We did let her have the day off last week to celebrate her 17th birthday! Can't say fairer than that!

    That almost looks like a Canadian winter! It's certainly more snow than I would have expected for Scotland. When I lived in Aberdeen for a year, there was just a dusting of snow a couple days and that was all.

    I know how difficult it can be to keep up to date on the boards when life pulls in other directions. I've been much less involved over the last few months due to job and life commitments.

    Glad to hear all is well and no worries I'll be here when you can come back. I have had life get in the way of Dis boards many times.
