Being VIPs for a Day

It may sound like a cliché but when I started my blog, I never thought it would lead to some of the most amazing opportunities that we get to experience as a family. I started writing because I wanted to keep a diary of the children as they grew that my family could read since they all stay so far away and because I have a genuine passion for writing. I used to write stories and poems when I was younger and sometimes I feel like I'm much better at expressing myself when I write than when I'm in person. 

I work hard on my blog. I'm writing almost every night and I will keep doing so until I get fed up. Although, I don't think I could ever get fed up of writing about my children and family. It's not about stats or views, however nice it is to have good ones and lots of; it's about us. Just my little family and I. 

On Friday, one of the most amazing things happened to us. We were invited along to see the Disney on Ice Worlds of Enchantment show. We've been really lucky to have been asked to review the show before and we are always so grateful of the opportunity but this time we were told we'd be treated to a VIP experience before the show with a meet and greet and a goodie bag. 

When we arrived at the meet and greet, there were actual famous people there. Leon Jackson, who won Xfactor many years ago, was stood within touching distance. Of course I didn't touch him but he did have a chat with us and the kids. We also saw Susan Boyle who was on Britain's Got Talent. She was really enjoying herself with her friends as we watched her have a little boogie in her seat. We also saw a Celtic player who was there with his family. It was so surreal.

The kids were so excited to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse. We told them we'd see them in Florida; Mickey high-fived Z and Miss C got a big hug and kiss from Minnie. They were delighted with their goodie bag filled with lovely Disney on Ice goodies. We had amazing seats to watch the show and got to go in an hour before everyone else so we could take some pictures right in front of the ice rink.

Z turned to me at one point and said, "why are we getting to be VIPs?" I told him it was because we had been  asked to go along to the show to write about it and tell other families what we thought of the show. And Z said, "also because we are really lucky!" 

We really are very lucky. We're not famous, we haven't done something worthy in the world. We're just an ordinary family, working hard and trying to make the best memories for our children.
