Center Parcs for early bd treat! And sneaky peeks…

My goodness we had some experiences this week at Center Parcs! My birthday is today (the 10th). So I went for my annual trip with my lovely daughter and her wonderful family. And the weather did us proud!

We went to Longleat Safari Park and adventure areas for kids, which took up most of Wednesday. Had some funny animal experiences including this one, in the top photo! Very funny having them all fly on me! They’ve got a boat trip where you can feed seals, a train ride, all for free, lots of kids play areas, beautiful gardens, and interesting animals.

(The exclusive on my newsletter this week is one featuring a very unusual name for an animal! Bet you won’t be able to guess what it’s called. See below for how to get my weekly newsletters by email telling you the blog is ready to read on my website).

Also see this week’s Vlog below – a little reel with some of the highlights. 

I did my #Thursdaybantz From there too so do you look it up on Facebook page. And a couple of other blogs & walk arounds 🙂 

This is another of my favourite photos, it’s almost like the monkey knew it had to smile lol! Thankfully it did not remove anything from the car, the car in front of us seemed to get more of the aggro!

Happy times, and many more magical memories for my memory banks for the future 🙂 will do it again next year!


Pottery Paradise

See what Phoebe is decorating? If you look at it from the front it actually says the word love. Turns out it was a present for me! How sweet. I love doing pottery with them, Jasper had a car money box that was basically just a massive blob of colours but he enjoyed it! And I did a jug with all of their names on as a memento of my trip!

Bowls – not so brill!

Did bowling one night, got two spares but no strikes. I used to be quite good! Also did a Pilates session, did my hair braiding, (Phoebe!), stuffed a bear (bit of a rip off but the kids loved them!), pottery, and more. Very very very very very very hectic! And as if I didn’t have enough to do with my time… 🙂

Spring Clean Time in Banstead

And the final picture this week by way of a change! Went out with some of the team from my flats and did a major cleanup, using the little cordless jet wash I bought from QVC! Happily some of the people are self-starters so I won’t have to be across it! Always feels good to have a good cleanup and the cordless jet wash did a good enough job!

Watch – boy have I been loving ‘upload’! It’s an Amazon Prime exclusive. The woman who plays the main love interest is really good I think.

And what a concept. People close to death can upload their consciences to a digital world but they can still interact with loved ones who are living! I just hope they can sustain the tension and threat to life over three series!

Blooper – Not so much a blooper but look who my cargo was in this little video! LOL. Not long after this, a woman cut me up on the inside just as I was about to turn left! Now that would’ve been a blooper and a half! (See it here).

PodcastGo here to get the latest Inside QVC podcast from Will, and the current one if you haven’t listened yet :-). Don’t forget there’s a massive back list to catch up on, too!

Vlog – a little video I did on Instagram (see it here), with highlights of my Center Parcs Holiday

Book of the Week – The Life Sentence

Jackie Kabler’s book is out! Considering how well she has been doing with her novels of late, this one is well worth a look. 

I’ve just started it and so far so good, as usual. I finished a Novela by the author who writes about the detectives Simon Wise too… all good!
