I'm moving back to France on Monday until September, where I'll be spending some time in Marne la Vallée beside Paris ---Disneyland---
For some unknown reason I actually am really quite nervous! Besides knowing that I will be working as a waitress, and living with other cast members near the parks, I pretty much know nothing else. I'll find out on Monday whether I'm working in the parks, or the hotels, or the Disney Village or even the Golf resort.
I have to move into a room with another girl for the summer in an apartment or studio, and although I know that it'll probably be great fun, I just can't help being a bit anxious to get sorted and all organised. I don't really like not knowing whats going to be happening yet, but what can you do.
It's Disneyland afterall, can't be that bad!

Un Imperméable.

If the sun would come out, I might justify indulging in some hippy-esk, shabby chic, summer fashion items. Cowboy boots, mullet dresses and crochet, which seems to be making a major comeback.

So a small bit more about the lovely trip down to Schull included a road trip from Cork to Schull with Jess and her hilarious brother Liam, in Jess's gorgeous new mini cooper!!!
Bombing around blaring music never really gets old..
and then we had a yum dinner at home in the house, where Jess's gang of friends came around, and after dinner we went up on top of St. Gabriel I think it was called? A nearby mountain for some beautiful views.

Next day was action packed too, as we took a boat out to Whiddy island and had lunch on the one lonely pub there.
Later on that night we had a bbq in Rian's house to top off a great trip.

Unfortunately I had to leave the next morning to be able to work today, whereas the others all headed down to Dingle for the night! Would have been so much fun, but such is life. I don't mind earning that bit of moolah at the races.
