Center Parcs.

I'm back and recovered from my monday-friday break at Center Parcs!
I had an absolutely brilliant time, even if I am more than a little saddle sore, after not riding a bike for about 15 years until last week!!
A good bit of my bike riding was done with a kiddy-car attached to the bike and my three year old nephew Elliott shouthing 'Faster faster Aunty Emma'.

I also indulged in lots of swimming which is always a favourite for me on any holiday, just a shame I didn't get the sunbathing in too!!
Poor Evie suffered a little as she's only recently learnt to ride a bike and she took a couple of tumbles from hers, hence the rathe rather fetching bruise on her chin and the huge monster bruise on her thigh!!

 There was loads of wildlife about...we had ducks waddle across our patio numerous times, a moorhen visited alot, scores of rabbits front and back and squirrels everywhere!!

The only bit of the week that didn't go to plan was the crafty evenings...I was so tired I managed to crochet one square for a big blanket I'm currently working on and thats it!
Anyway I had a brill time and We're already planning a return visit in the autumn hopefully.

Happy Birthday Evie.

I cant believe it's a whole year since I blogged about my youngest daughter Evie turning 8 and her We are again celebrating her 9th birthday...
The day passed in a blur of Wii games, Dr Who, Hello Kitty and Phineas and Ferb.

Evie declared it her best birthday ever, but I'm sure she said that last year and I'm sure she'll say it again next year!
We had a small buffet tea for close family as she's having her party on sunday in our local pet shop!
I think I'm looking forward to long as there's no tarantula handling involved!!!

And then next week we're off to Centre Parcs for a 5 day break, I can't wait 5 whole lovely relaxing days...lots of swimming and cycling during the day I hope and lots of crochet and films in the evenings...sounds like bliss to me!!!

Take care
Em xxxx
