After a successful summer meet-up, a few people were eager to know when the next one would be. We figured that a winter meet would be good but we would have to find an indoor venue. Jess then suggested a meal at the O2 which was perfect so arrangements were made. To get into the festive spirit we also decided to ask everyone to take part in Secret Santa, just for a bit of fun.
19th November 2016
There were eleven of us in total and one latecomer. Four of us were Disneybound UK admin going with ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ theme. Louise was Lock, Jess was Shock, Leanne was Barrel and I was the Corpes Kid. The smaller group meant that we were able to get to know people better.
We all met for the reservation that we had made at the Harvester and everyone had made a fantastic effort with their Disneybounds. Jessica and Scott created their own dark twist on the characters Elsa and Woody. Annie was Princess Sofia the first, Becky was Anna, Kate was Rafiki, Natalie was Eleanor of Avalor and Charlotte was Berlioz from ‘The Aristocats’.
During our meal we all put our secret santa presents into a big bag. Conversations were flowing and we all enjoyed our meals. We were delighted with the Disney related presents that we picked out at the end of the meal. I recieved a couple of books about the beast and the evil queen by Serena Valentino.
I had such a lovely time with everyone and can’t wait for our next meet-up which will probably be taking place in the Spring. That’s something else to look forward to in 2017. It’s shaping up to be a good year.
