Butlins Interlude 1


Well I am back from my fabulous jolly holiday.

Those lovely people at FuelMyBlog a few months ago launched a chance for some very lucky people to have a free break at one of the 3 Butlins resorts in the UK... Minehead, Skegness or Bognor Regis.

I threw my hat in the ring and wished I could go on a mini break so I could take my Teen away following her final High School exams (GCSE's) and also she was turning 16 years of age & yipeee my wish came through. I can't tell you how excited Teen was and she kept counting down the weeks then days.

I chose Skegness, Lincolnshire as it was the nearest to where we live, only 3 hours across to the East coast of England.

When the confirmation came through we were dancing up and down ... not only had we been sucessful in securing the week we wanted at the resort we wanted but we had been placed in a Gold Apartment with half board (breakfast and evening meal) ... but not only that but a free spa session for us all :-)
I couldn't take it in.... how absolutely fabulous.

Over the next few posts I will let you know how we got on in true 70s diary style...
But just to start you off here a couple of photos taken at the resort

I'm just hoping you didn't embarrass the teen - she's a brave girl - I'll follow this with interest [probably from behind the sofa] .......

Indeed archie ... but a very, very welcome break as I was ready for a hol :-)

me? embarrass the Teen? ... hee hee would I???

Ohh! Indeed I hope you would! Teens need to be embarrassed by their parental units. Shocked and surprised are the next two steps ;)

(I speak as a parent who has done a lot of embarrassing)
