Project Optimism – The Secret Getaway

Holy Kimoley, I am so excited.

(No, I don’t know what a Kimoley is. I just always wanted to use the phrase)

We are rapidly approaching our first wedding anniversary. What an amazingly fast year it has been! So much has happened.

A year and 3 months ago I was made redundant. I had no idea what to do with myself. Looking back at my posts from then then I was still optimistic, but frankly a little lost.

A year later I have got married, had an amazing honeymoon, gone self employed, cracked open a blog . . . It’s been exciting, educational, full of new experiences. Not least of which was learning to answer to a new name!

But now I am going to check off one more item from my bucket list. Well, two hopefully.

I am so excited I found myself doing a little dance round the house today. Quietly. So as not to alert Mini Monster 1 who is currently home on half term. Because its a surprise for her, and Mini Monster 2 of course.

So I can tell you, but you have to keep it quiet.

For our wedding anniversary, we are going away. On a trip. A secret getaway. We aren’t going to tell the kids. Nope, we will just load them in the car and see how long it takes them to work it out.

I can’t wait to see their faces. I know they are going to be ecstatic. Maybe not as ecstatic as me, I am pretty darn excited, I have to tell you. This is, after all, one of the reasons I had kids. So I can go on this particular trip and revert to being a kid myself.

Oh, I can’t tell you. You will have to guess.

But I will give you a hint. It’s a place where they promise to make the magic come alive.

And to think that a year ago I was unemployed and worrying about the future. Stay optimistic people and your dreams may just come true.

  1. Fantastic! I’m so excited for you! We never did it on quite this grand scale, but there were a few times where we sneaked luggage into the trunk and took off. Our kid was always bowled over and couldn’t believe we kept the trip a secret. Disney is huge, and your kids will remember forever how Mom and Dad surprised them. Very cool! 🙂

    • I am giddy. Still prancing about this morning. No matter how cynical we are about Disney, the ‘trap for humans run by a mouse’, we still love all their cartoons, films, characters . . .
      I don’t know if I can restrain myself from telling the kids. . .

    • Thank you Dianne. I cannot claim all the glory, Project Optimism was certainly not my idea, I just tagged along. I do recommend going to take a look at the other sites involved, there are some fabulous and hilarious bloggers involved. But I do like to hope i am generally a happy person and I do love to bring a smile to other people!
