Getting closer...

Another £25 off the holiday making it £1125 left to pay! I also noticed that I'd somehow only planned 12 days so I'm loving planning two 'extra' days!

Almost half way!

I have my laptop back as of...oh...10 minutes ago! Another £30 towards the holiday today, making a grand total of £1590 left to pay, £1407 already paid for!

47.3% of the way there now. I've also drafted up a payment plan, so should be paying little and often now, and should be paid off in no time!

Computer broken!

I'm on a friends computer today, as my laptop is, again, at the repair place, probably for another week or so.

Update, I now have £1620 left to pay, £1180 for the holiday and £440 for the tickets!

I've passed the half way point for the tickets!

Don't think I'll have another week like this!

ANOTHER £20 towards the holiday, leaving £1180!

Jaws. Can you spot the shark?

MGM studios, now known as Disney Hollywood Studios

The pool at our hotel on I-Drive

Tower of Terror! Love this ride!

Brilliant funny game at Wonderworks

Big bubbles at Wonderworks...

We didn't tell Marc this was the splash zone for the Jurrassic Park ride!

Ripsaw falls, great flume ride

These signs are everywhere in Islands of adventure, Toon island I think

Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, brilliant ride

I'm not sure where this was! Anyone?

Marc in the stocks in Kissimmee

Ripsaw falls again, big drop!

A few more random ones...

Catching up again...

£20 towards holiday, £20 towards tickets, making total left to pay £1730, £1250 for the holiday, £480 for the tickets.

I have paid a total of £1247 so far! Not bad at all!

PLUS, we now have 327 days to go! That has gone so fast. I remember typing I had 400 odd days left.

Lagging behind...!

Got to catch up a bit I think if I want to pay off the holiday by May! Another £30 off today, so £1270 left to pay off the holiday, still £500 for tickets. :D

Some pics...

...of when we went to Florida in 1995! I was 10, Marc was 8, and we went with my mum, dad and uncle Ian.

They're photos of photos though so not great quality.

My Dad snorkelling. Beautiful there.

Me, Marc and my Dad next to our rental car at the Villa in Kissimmee

This squirrel wasn't afraid of us at all. It stayed with us for ages, eating crisps out of our hands, climbing on us, amazing.

Snorkelling in Typhoon Lagoon, I think.

Summit Plummet at Blizzard Beach. Very fast and steep slide! Hurts your bum as you come down!

Ahh, can't wait to go back

Beauty and the Beast show

Back to the Future ride! So gutted it's gone!

My Dad, the biker!

The lovely Shamu

Night time at seaworld

We got soaked here!

Shamu and his friend come to say hello

Get ready to get wet!

The big screen at Seaworld, I think it's completely changed now

Manatees, very endagered, lovely creatures

Aaaaand another. :D

The holiday balance is down to £1300 now, with the remaining balance on the tickets at £530.

£1830 left to pay in total, £1147 paid so far. :)

I'm going to start sorting out ADR's again soon. There are so many fantastic places to eat I'm having trouble trying to decide which ones to get rid of. :(

I also need to be clever about when I eat where, as I will be able to book 10 days of ADR's on the first day (another bonus of staying in a Disney Resort) so I may try to book the CRT first on day 5 or something, book the hardest ones first at whatever days they are available, and then book the ones that are not so hard to book, working around the difficult ones.

38.6% of the way there now! With over 11 months to go! :D

Tuesday, 28 October 2008

Little bit more off.

Another £20 off the tickets today, making the remaining £530, and £1350 for the holiday, totalling £1880 left to pay! £1097 paid to date. :D

Thursday, 23 October 2008

One more down...

I wanted to round it up today, so paid £69 towards the holiday!

I now owe £1900 in total, £1350 for the holiday and £550 for the tickets. I've so far paid £1077!

So just over 36% paid for now! I must say I'm very proud of myself.

I've passed the 1k mark!! I have paid £1008 now. Yes!

It's surprised me that I'm still so excited about going. It'll only get worse the closer we are to leaving. :D

A third of the way there!

I now have £1992 left to pay, £573 for the tickets, and £1419 for the holiday!

If, by some miracle, I can pay £50 for the holiday, and £20 for the tickets, I can be paid by my birthday! What a gift that would be, knowing everything is paid for!

Not that I'll be able to, but hey, I can dream!

Wednesday, 8 October 2008

Another payment. :D

I've paid off some money towards the holiday and tickets today. I now owe £2067!

So far, I've paid off £910!!!!!

Which is over 30%!

I should be getting a little extra money every week from the ex, so should be a third of the way there in no time. And I still have a year left until we go!
