    Well this time next week I will finally have retired from work and on Monday we leave Inverness to spend the night at the Hilton and on Tuesday it's Virgin UC to the Beach Club. I'm soooo excited but now worried that one of us will have an accident or something horrible will happen and we'll have to cancel (this happens every trip). ADR's all booked
    Crystal Palace
    Cape May
    Narcoossee's
    Yachtsman (2 meals booked here we love it so much)
    California Grill
    MK Desserts Party
    The rest of the time we'll just be winging it and hoping we can get somewhere. I've ironed all my clothes (why do I iron my clothes when they're going to be in a suitcase for 24 hours and there is an iron in the room!) and they're laid out on the bed in my spare room, jeans, shorts and shoes packed already. Got my $'s when they were a good rate and they're hidden away in case someone tries to break into the house before we go. Just have to hope I don't forget them. I have a folder with everything in it beginning with receipt for long stay car park at Inverness and ending with check in details for BC. As I've done everything for the 6 of us I've got everything in this folder and I'm feeling the responsibility a bit 'cos if anything goes wrong IT'S ALL M Y FAULT (gulp). I keep trying to occupy my mind with other things but my DD and I have already got our travel day worked out from checking in at Inverness, to having a glass of wine at the airport and the rest of the day. Can you tell I'm excited??

    Awww! That sounds so wonderful. I thought you'd already retired though? :unsure: I am so easily confused! :lol:

    Your ADR plans are great! I hope you are able to get in other places. Don't forget about Olivia's at OKW. It's a "sleeper" restaurant that really has nice food. :yes:

    So! Short timer! Here's the dance! :D :tralala:

    Ah, thank you for telling me that! I was afraid I was losing my mind. :D Well. I very well may be, but I still remembered about your retiring. :D

    This time are you really retiring or will you be going back again? ;) :D

    No definitely the end, I'm too old now to be working and looking after my house and garden, so it's time to concentrate on my garden and really do things I want to do (like being on here as long as I want!)

    The thoughts of gardening and making my house look the way we want it to are very nice ones! I don't expect to be able to retire, so therefore, I shall vicariously enjoy yours! :D
