So we made it! There were of a few hiccups of course, but we did it! The girls behaved so well. For me it involved so many stages:
- Picked up by my lovely step dad
- Train to airport
- Flight to Philadelphia
- Flight to Orlando
- Car hire organisation
- Sat navigation to the hotel
Each stage was different & my biggest wobble was boarding the first flight to Philadelphia. I felt a panic attack starting, there were a few tears & some mindfulness breathing. Also Nigel & the girls just giving my a cuddle or holding my hand. It was not the fear of flying, flying is something I enjoy, I think it was the thought of leaving home, the UK.
Anyway I did it, soon I was watching films & nodding off & eating everything the kind staff put in front of me!
Every part got easier & now I’m looking forward to our first day. Everyone is still asleep, but hopefully we’ll be off to Harry Potter, part of the Universal Parks
If there is a moral to this blog it’s go for it, keep those around you informed of how you feel, & don’t be scared to be you!
I can’t wait for the adventure!
