Despite our alarm not going off, repeated firealarms and an evacuation at Gatwick we have made it to Florida. Everything is much bigger here. Liz and Laurie's house is so huge that we may lose the chidren in it. We thought the Q7 was big but you should see the size of our "suburban tank-thingy" we have now! We are not doing well time adjustment; the kids were awake a 1am, we had breakfast at 3 and played basketball in the games room at 4. Still 3 hours to go till Disney opens!

Darling Katie, Giles, Sophie, Sam and Evie,
So good to hear from you that you arrived safely after all the events of the fire alarm at Gatwick; lucky that Giles has some strong arms to lift Evie, in the pushchair, up all those stairs.

It's going to be a very long day if you started at 1 a.m.! I think the children will be sleeping very well before long, with all the excitement Disney World will bring.

As I said before, have a super time!
All our love Mumxxx and Dadxxx

It all sounds fantastic and we wish you the happiest of times.Lots of love Neil, Amanda and Cameron xxx

Hi Katie,

I hope you have a wonderful time over there. There is nothing like the look on young children's faces in Disney. Many happy memories to be made, to keep you smiling while you fight this melanoma.
We are thinking of you and all of your beautiful family, take care sunshine.

Hurray, glad you got there ok! There's nothing like a drama on departure to start a holiday off properly. Hope you've settled in really well now. It's so wet and windy tonight that I just can't imagine the heat you're in. Have loads of fun - I'm looking forward to hearing all about it xxx

we hope you have a fantastic time in Florida. The Peter Pan ride in the Magic Kingdom is brillant!! The weather back in Hertford is cold, wet and gale force winds so enjoy the Florida sunshine.
Have a fabulous time. Love from Julia, Steve. Clare and Chris (no 10 Jasmine Drive) XXXX

Hi Katie - sounds rather a drama getting there, but glad you made it safely! Hope you're having a great time!
Lots of love Rebecca xxx


Some how I can across your blog, and perhaps it was to be. I will be praying for your healing tonight. Your family is beautiful, and I pray that you have many more days of life with them.

Dear Giles, Katie, Sophie, Sam,and Evie,
We read in our newspaper that the sun is shining for you in Florida, most of the time anyway.
We are sure you have a wonderful time and enjoy all the excitment Disneyland brings.
Hope your return flight will be less eventful and I hope I will not have the same experience when I fly to Switzerland !!
Thinking of you all.
Lots of love
Mum and Dad xx
