My 1st post as Disney.On.My.Mind

So I've often thought of starting a blog but never actually know what to write about so when a fellow DIBBer (I'll explain this in a mo) suggested this morning I should write a blog I decided to rise to the challenge.

A little about me then... I'm in my late 20's, and married with 2 boys and our house is essentially Disney mad, you'd be hard pushed to walk in to our house and not notice this fact - the pictures on the walls, the ornaments, bathroom toiletries and even kitchen utensils... oh and the fact that we talk Disney a lot! If I'm not speaking it out loud then I'm on my favourite Disney forum ( reading and discussing it.

Our first trip to Disney World was in 2005 when our eldest was just 14 months and we have been trying to go every year since, having also bought into the Disney Vacation Club it's almost become a necessity but for us simply is our 'Happiest Place on Earth'... As I write our next trip is exactly 161 days, 17 hours and 58 minutes away.

But, I'm not just a Disney geek I have other interests too but these are indeed overshadowed by my need for a little more Disney magic.
I'm currently studying with the Open University attaining my BA Hons degree in English Literature and Language - making me also a bit of a bookworm. I'll read most things though being a huge Bones fan I also love reading Kathy Reichs novels, sadly she doesn't write as quickly as I read and so over the last 2 days have demolished her newly released 'Bones are Forever'. This was made easier by my latest gadgety present from my husband, a Kindle. Now I always refused to have a kindle as I love to have a book in my hand but the fact that we don't have a decent bookshop within at least 15 miles means I have had to go without a book for what seems like eons. So as I sat with my new kindle in my hand, down came Bones are Forever and within a day and a half (along with a busy household to tend) that was that finished with and a need for something else to read, this is where I decided to be a good girl and start on my next module's set books and so have set about Oroonoko by Aphra Behn, which having read all the pre-story bits (which takes up 30ish % of the kindle book) I'm finally ready to begin properly.

I'm writing on a new laptop, freshly delivered due to Dicky breaking yet another (one of his many talents) so I need to transfer my photos across to be able to use them, but watch this space and in following pages they may just begin to appear

If you're still here then thanks for reading, I'm a pretty straight forward kind of person so should be easy to follow. I will warn you I'm prone to rambling though... this is your only warning!


  1. Just found your blog through the Dibb, really looking forward to reading the rest. Any idea how I can subscribe ? I can't find it on here anywhere

  2. Sorry, I've just added a gadget at the top right... thanks for reading
