Warning!!! If you're feeling slightly depressed, don't read any further.
The plan was to go back to Hollywood Studios today for a few hours before taking the car back to the airport hire car centre. We were so late last night getting back to the hotel, we had a lay in this morning. We checked out of the 'Not Much Quality Inn' by 10:30 and headed to Downtown Disney to check in our suitcases at the Virgin Desk next to Cirque de Soliel.
We wandered around the shops and restaurants and had lunch at Paradiso 37. Well Gemma & Elena did. The music was making my headache worse so Andrew & I left the girls and wandered around outside for a while.
I woke up this morning with the headache from hell, or more like we were all woken up 3 times at something silly o'clock, which was the cause of my bad head. Andrew's phone went off, which stuck us all to the ceiling. The last thing you need when you're fast asleep is Yoda shouting in your ear "message from the dark side there is". It was Sandown High School texting about some 6th form meeting being postponed! Then, if that wasn't bad enough, Gemma tried to get a drink & knocked the bottle onto the floor. We had all got back to sleep when she turned over and knocked it off again. Love you really Gem :O) So sleep was not the order of the day, oh well. I'm not really moaning, I just think the holiday blues have started early. I hate going home.

After that we did some people watching. Now Andrew doesn't usually come out with funny stuff, but when he does, it's priceless. A big fat lady was stood talking to some other people and when I say she was big, she was huge. Her arms were covered with tattoos of cup cakes. I'm not kidding, there was a picture of every kind of cake you could imagine. Well we all wondered if she had got cake rash due to eating so many. Andrew said, "I wonder if she can get fresh cream for that?"
Weather ... doesn't matter because we're going back to the wind & rain tonight.
Nothing else to tell you apart from 9 & 1/2 hours & no sleep later, we landed at Gatwick. Caught the train & boat & train back home and got in just after 1pm ... shattered. Would I do it again? Hell yes, give me a couple of hours to pack my bag :O)
