Hulk or Sulk?

0

Posted on : 25-06-2013 | By : Brian T. Mullan | In : Brian's Blog, General Blog

In a week’s time I’ll be faced with a dilemma. Do I decide what any sane individual who would be used to having both feet firmly on the ground would decide – that is to stand and watch the thrill seekers on the Incredible Hulk Ride at Universal’s Island of Adventure and laugh (or sulk at my inability to give it a go and generally look silly in front of the kids). Or, do I just do it? Get on, I’ll only be here once, I’ll regret it if I don’t etc. etc. Have a look below:

The Longest Fortnight

Posted on : 15-06-2013 | By : Brian T. Mullan | In : Brian's Blog, General Blog

And so we begin…

The longest fortnight of the Mullan Family’s life starts now. In 2 weeks time we’ll be finishing off our preparations to our big holiday in Florida. We’ll be asking each other, checking with each other…

Passports… Check. Airline Tickets… Check. Park tickets… Check. Why won’t this fortnight just get on with it and be down?!! I bet the fortnight in the Sunshine State won’t pass so quickly!

We’ll just try to pass the two weeks by watching videos for inspiration

This had better be Super Man!!!
