I promised to tell you about my trip to Disneyland Paris, here are the children waving goodbye to the white cliffs of Dover.......
When are we getting on the boat? asked Monty when we were about a mile out to sea - he thought it would be small and wooden!
Cuddles in the park.....
and Kiki chose the most stylish mouse ears in the place - I couldn't resist them....
and of course, there were a lot of these photo ops!.....
A couple of little anecdotes, Monty was running around the hotel children's playground, chatting away to some other little boys. He came running up 'Ma, those boys won't talk to me'
They are French Monty, they don't understand you
'Well, I've done the bonjour thing you taught me, and they still won't talk to me! - the universal language of childhood seemed to kick in, as they played happily together until it was time for bed
There was a 65 minute wait to have your photo taken with Mickey, so I opted to stay out in the sunshine while they did this - I've met Mickey a few times, and never find him a great one for conversation. After about five minutes I was bored, so I took it upon myself to act as unofficial photographer for couples - you know the type of thing, boy takes a photo of girl standing in front of a flower bed, swap over, girl takes a photo of boy in front of same flower bed. So I asked if they would like me to take a photo of both of them together. I did this for quite a few people and got quite animated about it. I was complimenting little girls on their princess costumes 'wow, you look JUST like Cinderella, is she your favourite?...and so on. Flushed with my people skills, I made my way back to the bench to sit down and a middle aged woman dressed as Pocahontas (I thought, I'm not an expert on Disney characters these days) sat down beside me. 'Great costume' I enthused
She looked a bit bewildered
'Hindu' she replied
So it was a lovely, and very special time to spend a magical few days with two of my beloved grandchildren - scrapbook next I think...
Have a great weekend x
