“Well… she’s ruined Disney for me.” 

Dear Katie,  

It has been a year today that it was your funeral. This is weird to say, but it was the most perfect funeral for you. I of course was dreading it  (and not just because I had a cheeky moment and snog with your cousin  at ellie’s birthday party and he would obviously be there) but because it was closure that you actually weren’t with us anymore. 

Is it also weird to talk about favourites at a funeral? Maybe I mean the moments that really reflected you.. 

1. Your bright pink Vivienne Westwood heart shoes were the main focus point.

2. You came into the church with the little mermaid’s ‘under the sea’ playing.

3. The priests attempt of saying your “shat it you muppet” was actually hilarious. 

4. After we had left the crematorium and beauty and the beasts ‘tale as old as time’ was playing, Emma went “well.. she’s ruined Disney hasnt she!” 

When I drove into school today there was a Robin that greeted me that also wouldn’t move from the road. I took it as a sign you came to say hi 🙂 

Miss you enormously pop tart. Come visit again.

Winnie the Pooh.

Dear Katie,

They are going to make a new film about Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh. I teared up in the trailer already.


Do you remember that time it was your maybe like 13th birthday and you had a birthday party around your house. We all gathered in your living room and went to secretly watch Jaws whilst the adults probably drank wine in the kitchen. Anyway, I remember whenever your dad kept coming in you would switch it over to Winnie the Pooh because we weren’t old enough to watch Jaws. Especially Ellie… it was so funny because your parents and friends all knew what was happening!!! Haha good times poptart!

Disney films. 

Dear Katie,  

It’s bank holiday weekend and instead of drinking wine, I am indulging in this…

Sad times dude.  But with being ill gives you that chance to catch up on any films and have a sofa day. I always find when I’m ill my go to ill films is Disney. So I watched moana and it was so good!!! You would have loved it pop tart!  It’s like a hercules meets tangled hawain adventure of musical wonderful Ness.  Also, what I really liked is that moana doesn’t fall in love with anyone in this film. It’s all about girl power and achievement and goals and that. 

After every Disney film I place it in my top 5 Disney films. So here goes.
1. The lion king

2. Oliver and company 

3. Tangled 

4. Mary poppins 

5. Beauty and the beast/moana… that counts right! 

What are your top 5/6 Disney films?
