Another busy week

Things never seem to stop in this household! The week started off with a bang with a Disney dinner and meeting. It will the last meeting where the Yeohs can attend in person. After a delicious Malaysian feast, we sat down with the Yeohs and Marrs to nut out some details of our upcoming adventure. It was a productive meeting with dates and rough plans finalised and the rest of the Marr family possibly joining us earlier for the trip! It was certainly pleasant to see everyone so enthused and excited about the trip.

My next Disney step was a "pre-cruise" meet on Thursday with a fellow DISer who will be cruising with us in the Mediterranean come April. An American expat, she has been here for about 2.5 years with her husband and 6 year old son. We met up at Borders for a coffee. It was a surprisingly pleasant meeting with no awkward moments. The children took a while to warm up but by the time we got to looking at the travel section, they had managed to sit themselves down together at the kids section reading books!

With the return of the Kohs, we just had to update them with the most recent Disney developments. So what better way to do this than over dinner and a boardgame? It was lovely looking at their holiday photos in Hong Kong and to hear about their experience at Hong Kong Disneyland. Sadly, however, the Yeohs left for Canberra on the same day.

Today, we finally managed to get ourselves organised to submit the applications for Jonah's and Lara's passports. Then it was off to yum cha to celebrate Alessandra's 20th Birthday followed by a special chocolate birthday treat at Max Brenners. Mmmm....

We're now home after a swim and dinner at Nana's and Grandpa's. Tomorrow we pick up Marie, our next au pair. And a new chapter begins...
