The wanderer returns
I am back from my holiday to Haven (was it a holiday or am I infact more in need of one now?).
We had a lovely time. It took the kids a couple of days to chill out and relax, the first 2 days were a frantic mix of never settling to one activity before moving on to the next, which left me a bit frazzled I must admit and I did threaten to pack us all back home if they didn't calm down a bit!
The middle 2 days were lovely and relaxed, we spent time on the beach, chilled out with racket games at the caravan, BBQ'ed (the kids would only let us have one night in), a bit of swimming and some card games.
Any one who has been to a Haven camp will know that the entertainment in the evening revolves around their 'Showbars' There were 2 large ones on our camp and my god were they busy - you had to get there before 5.30pm to get a seat and it was PACKED out, roasting hot and sooooooo LOUD. Also I swear Haven have only bought the rights to 10songs and if I ever hear that bloody pizza hut/mcdonald song again I will scream!! Mandy, if you read this you would have HATED it, we had a chuckle about how it would be your idea of hell, even with a bottle of wine!
For all its tackiness the 'funstars' really do work their socks off and do such long hours they must be constantly knackered, one had a bit of a wicked sense of humour and made Jason and I smirk with his sarcasm and rudeness.
However we are pleased to be home, we all missed Bruno Brookes and he was besides himself when he saw us at the kennels, my white trousers are now dog print trousers!!
I missed scrapping so much, my fault for using my iphone to keep up to date with blogs and then getting inspired and not being able to do anything about it. We were only back 2 hours before I got my scrapping stuff out and I am almost done with a holiday layout already!
