    OK! I know I am weak - but I managed to go almost two years without going back to Florida.

    I have foregone many things this past year in the name of marital harmony - new kitchen and assorted other building works - not going to see EC for the first time since 1986.

    So I cracked tonight and booked the flights and some hotels.

    Our plan so far :


    24th December 2009 - travel to Gatwick Airport - stay overnight @ Hilton

    25th December 2009 - Fly to Orlando - stay overnight @ Travellodge I-Drive

    26th December 2009 - Drive to Sarasota - stay 5 nights @ Helmsley
    Sandcastle


    Move on to a rented home somewhere near Disney

    15th January 2010 - Fly home - collect car - resume sulking and planning next escape to Florida


    Sounds like a plan to me!

    Blast - I was hoping you would not spot this!


    Ah - what is the worst that could happen? I would never do anything which would be worth videorecording and posting on the internet ..... I hope.
