All Swimmed out!!!!
We are back!!!! Had a lovely few days at Centerparcs – as a holiday it really worked well for us and we all feel nice and relaxed. All the girls had a lovely time and it seemed to suit Moo particularly well – its a fairly sensory experience really and i think the walking about really grounded her too. We adored the Sub Tropical Paradise and all the girls got quite confident – it was Scruff’s first time swimming as her eczema has been too bad up till now and she held out well and enjoyed it. They all loved the slides (even me!) and the baby area and the waves and the outdoor pools and the … etc etc… all the water current areas went down very well. We sent them to a few of the “thinly veiled childcare” sessions and they had a nice time – even Scruff wnet to one- first time she has ever been left and not a tear or a wobble in sight!!!! She stayed 2 hours and behaved like a childcare pro apparently!!! (is that actually a compliment???) Max and i spent that time swimming together nad going on the grown-up swimming bits like the white water rapids and hot tubs and then the next day he looked after Scruff while the girls were being Native Americans and i got to be pampered at the spa and have a facial – twas truly lovely!!!! It made me realize how little time i have for just “thinking” these days!
We also all indulged in haircuts while we were there (Moo’s first ever in a shop and she was very brave), went bowling, hired bikes, went for one of those portrait booth experience things (see later for comedy portrait!) and generally had fun – twas lovely to be virtually free but i think we will be saving to go again!
