Loving at the moment

1) Let's just start off with food. Brie, tomato chutney and crackers, it's a lovely evening treat if you're still a little bit peckish after dinner. Me and the other half usually have some while watching the evening programs. We don't have it every night, because I think if we did it would be really unhealthy. I'm just really enjoying the flavour of it at moment.

2) The song Defying Gravity from the musical Wicked. I don't know why I keep listening to it at the moment, I just do and normally in the morning before I go to work. It's just an overall a great song.
It's on YouTube that I listen to it when I am getting ready for work.

3) Bull, this is a TV show that is based on trial science, it's on Channel 5 and is absolutely fantastic. It's got the same guy in it from NCIS. If I was you I'd go over and check the program out, I've even got the other half into watching it.

4) My Disney app, I actually don't really need to use this app at the moment but I'm still on it every other day to see what time the park is open at and to look at all the restaurants. You see what you need to book when the time comes. Also I'm keeping an eye on the ride times to see what would be best to use my fast passes for.

Back to School

It has been a month since Little Miss P has been back to school and I think I can now finally say that we are back into a proper routine. Maybe not the routine that I plan to have. But it is a routine.
Little Miss P has gone back to school on form, and I mean that in a way that she has gone back to school and kicked it in the bum. She is doing so well with her reading, and brilliantly in her maths. I couldn't ask for any better. She's happy that she's got the same teacher again but instead of being Miss Hobart she is now Mrs Finley and is at least four months' pregnant. I'm guessing that by Christmas she will be going on maternity leave and Little Miss P will probably be getting a supply teacher for the rest of the year. Let's see how that will go as it does take Little Miss P a while to see if she likes the teacher or not. 

Some of Little Miss P's friends aren't always being that nice at the moment, so I've said to her go and find someone else to play with. And when one of them comes running back to you because they are in an argument tell them to go away and that you're not sorting it out. As she seems to be the one that was solving the arguments. I think she's being brave at school and actually standing up for herself now, which is a good thing. I just hate the thought of people walking all over her.

That's all I've got on the school update at the moment, I will do another one after Christmas.

Here is a little video of Little Miss P's top five Disney things, I hope you enjoy it.

September Lookover

7th - We are well and truly back into routine, Little Miss P is back to school and dancing, I am back to work, Mr P is back into doing all his music things, so yeah we are back to it. I'm not going to lie, it has been a struggle. The fact that I have to actually get up and I can't lie in until 9 o'clock in the morning, I wish I could though. Right now I'm just trying to find a pattern to fit everything in and have a bit of time for me, before I go to sleep. 
 Work is okay, at the moment we have two new people with us now, and they seem to be okay. And settling in okay. And surprisingly all the kids seemed to settle in okay, it was like we haven't even had a six week break.

11th - Well its been 16 years since 9/11, wow time has gone by and I hope that Little Miss P gets to do at least a 1 min silence in school today. I think they still should do due to how many people died.
It's the 2nd week now back to school and work and getting back into a routine. My hours at work have been cut only by 30mins a day but it's being taken over by an apprentice on like £2.90 an hour. Not that happy about it but it does make perfect business sense, and it seems to be the way the school is run now.

18th - It's Monday today and I have come out with a cold, Little Miss P got one over the weekend. I think she's given it to me even though I do work in a school and I have been sneezed at in the face twice by kids. I could've got it from them. At the moment I have got a really sore throat and my ear hurts. Everything else is fine at the moment. What I need is my throat sweets and a hot water bottle and I should be fine.

Take a look at my video of our birthday week, thanks

Disney Planning - 10mth - booking flight

We have 10 months until our Disney holiday and I have finally booked flights, yes I know most people book everything at the same time but I am not like most people. As I do with all our flights I went straight to Kayak,  as we booked flights with them last time and we trusted it. Once we found our flights it takes you to another website to book them (Kayak is like Go Compare's website but for travel). It said the best price was from a website called Budget Airlines but I have never heard of them before so we went to the next best and that was It cost £10 more booking at Expedia but I'm happy as I don't think the company is going to be going under any time soon. 

So our first flight is from Gatwick to Orlando, with British Airways but we actually booked it through Liberia, a Spanish airline. We actually saved about hundred pounds, it's to do with code Sharing. I don't know how it all works but never mind. 

On the way home it got booked through British airways but we are flying with Aer Lingus. On the way home we have booked a flight from Orlando to Dublin, then there is about an hour and a half gap before our next flight Dublin to Heathrow. This is the cheapest way to do it. If we booked these flights for Aer Lingus it would've been more expensive. 

Just shows that it's worth looking around.

This is not a sponsored post or anything but I would hundred percent recommend Kayak.
