    I know what you mean. I've just been told I'm being made redundant :( we normally go once a year, that's not going to happen now.

    I find coming on to the boards and chatting with other Disney minded people helps. I love reading trip reports too :)

    Oh no Lisa, I am so sorry you will have to concentrate on making your business bigger, can you make celebration cakes as well as cupcakes? The key is to start making cakes for children and then word of mouth gets you more work. It can be quite a profitable business if you want it to be. x









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    First I focus on my photopass photos and souvenirs

    Then I just start planning and hoping and looking for cheap airfare and possible discount codes.

    And once something comes up I contact Johnie :)

    I spend lots of time on the boards too, love it here!

    Oh geez. That's miserable news. Do you want to pursue being a cupcake Queen? That could be wonderful; working for yourself. Take some time to breath and decide what you want to do.

    I'm hoping to start bigger cakes, I've got dummies to practice on so we'll see :)

    I'm getting there Tink, my cupcake business has really taken off, far quicker than I thought it would so I'm pleased with that, but as Wendy says I need to do bigger cakes too, at least I'll have lots of time to practice now :)
