It has been a very busy few weeks and I have kept meaning to post but just haven’t got round to it. Updates on running to follow but I must say thank you to fellow bloggers BritsRunDisney who nominated my blog for the Real Neat Blog Award. I got the notification from them after a really really tough day during which our last ewe had trouble lambing and all 3 triplets died (more about our sheep here). It was lovely to come home to a positive message. This is what they said:
“Hello there, I love reading your blog and have nominated it on my blog for a ‘real neat blog award’ – you don’t have to participate but if you do fancy it you can read the rules on my post https://britsrundisney.wordpress.com/2015/05/12/the-real-neat-blog-award/ Keep up the great work! It’s so nice to hear updates from someone on a similar journey as we are :)”
As part of this they wanted me to answer a number of Disney related questions so here goes:
1. Who is your favourite Disney Character and why?
Oooh tricky. I like the Winnie the Pooh gang but don’t really see them as Disney… I also have a soft sport for Dopey and Grumpy
2. If you had to skip a park on your next visit to Disney World which would you skip and why?
As we are going in January, I’ll happily skip the waterparks! Ok that’s cheating! As much as I love the Magic Kingdom, I’d probably skip that simply because I’ve spent most time there already on previous visits and I have specific reasons to want to go back to the others. However if all goes to plan that won’t work as I will have to run through the parks as part of the marathon!
3. What is your Favorite Ride at Disney(Land or World or Both)?
Never been to Disney Land so no idea for that but Disney World. Hm. I suspect I would love Splash Mountain but I have always been in January and it has always been closed for maintenance! I love Soarin’ in Epcot
4. What is your favourite snack at Disney(Land or World or Both) and why?
Corn on the cob – love it
5. What is your top tip for someone about to go to Disney?
Believe in the magic
6. What is your Favorite thing to do aside from going to Disney?
Sitting reading a book in the field with our sheep
7. If you could bring back an old ride that has now closed down, which would you bring back and why?
I don’t know! I am not aware of any rides I like being shut down. Last time we went we did miss a shop though – it was on Main Street USA before and sold disney stuff for pets, Kath’s mum wanted something for a friend’s dog and we looked all over but couldn’t find it.
So – once again thank you! Thank you for reading and thank you for the encouragement. I don’t really read any other blogs about disney or run disney (I knwo there are a good number of you out there) – just don’t have the time at the moment so I’d like to save nomination until I have actually read some. But if you like Disney and you like following a runner’s journey I do recommend BritsRunDinsey!
