Only five more sleeps until we begin our car journey to Skegness for our first ever Butlins holiday, the children are extremely excited and have been on a sleeps countdown since the school holidays began!!
I cannot believe we are in April already, this year is flying by, it only seems like yesterday that we got the news we had been chosen as one of the 40 families, and in less than a week we shall be there!
We have begun the FUN task of sorting out clothes, last year the school holidays were quite mild and sunny, however I woke up today to find snow flurries so, it looks like big fluffy jumpers and bed socks!!
It felt very strange last week shopping for swimming costumes, as most of the children had outgrown their ones from last year, I obviously need a maternity costume as wiggly is growing at quite a rate…
The part they are most looking forward to is the newly opened Splash Waterworld, that you can take a peek at below.
The part I am most looking forward to is the Premium Dining, since falling pregnant, preparing and cooking meals has been a slight challenge, so I am looking forward to five days of not cooking and allowing the children to choose their own meals.
Eowyn and Tyrus adore loud bright colourful things so i think they will enjoy the live shows, the older ones are keen to try some of the activities and clubs, which will be a first for all of them.
Last week we were rock poolong in the snow, so I amsure the buckets and spades will find their way into the car, no matter what the weather….
Look out Butlins, here we come….
1 thought on “Five More Sleeps To Go!!”
There is nothing that can beat that feeling of expectation that anticipates every single holiday! I won’t push it to the extend of saying that sometimes it’s even better than the holiday itself but it’s definitely a great way to feel fully alive. I love everything of it, even the panic of thinking I might not have all ready for the big day! 😀
I hope you had a great time at the Butlins… and ALL THE BEST for your September event! 🙂
