Mmmmmm….i LIKE Centerparcs. And just so all my holiday gatecrashers feel loved, Max decided he preferred it this year with lots of people around. Which i would say was quite a result :~)
We had a great week, easily as nice if not more so than last year. The girls had really come on in terms of swimming confidence, though i am quite glad i didn’t know till it was too late that they were wave jumping without float jackets. Better drowned than duffers… Amelie was fearless, down slides, over waves and in up to her neck and impressively the chlorine and a major steroid cream offensive seemed to clean up her eczema beautifully. She is as itch free as i have seen her in a long time. Josie was relaxed all week, only really had one huge feed day and enjoyed the water and the company. She did a bit of baby passing practise ready for the full cuddle attack at Melrose. Both the big girls enjoyed their flirtations with the gamecube and so did i – i’m going to indulge tomorrow :~D They also liked having their mates around a lot, though we did a small amount of preserving our “family holiday” status and tried to spend quite a lot of time just together. I don’t think anyone minded. Chris’s birthday party and our games night were definite highlights for me, as was sitting up waiting for Fran to come home: I found that deeply amusing :~D. Just being pop round for a pre-breakfast gossip is one of my favourite bits of camps/holidays etc and it was particularly nice to know we would all be back together in a week, with even more people added to the mix for value added fun ;~)
Particularly enjoyed the sensation of being momentarily better at this than Max, though only while he was drunk on wine… i got better when wine soaked, which says a lot for my logic skills…
Have hugely enjoyed seeing the girls crack the above game as well as partially crack “Set”, get fabulously better at drawing and cycle with far better road sense than last year.
Yes, it was a good week. Same time same place next year?
