7 September 2011 (1)

And, here we are, back to school day today for the three.  Before this, however, we went away for a week, staying in a caravan in Clacton-on-Sea.  We won't be going back to that particular park however, nothing for the kids to do - the activity clubs that we given in the blurb were non-existent, unless you were 5 and wanted to do colouring in every morning.  Bingo, was interesting.  We couldn't hear the caller, was it 21 or 29, we couldn't tell so hazard a guess and a pint of Strongbow was £3.60, no cold drinks on taps for kids ie your orangeade/pepsi.  The good thing, the swimming pool, we went every day and it was a warm swimming pool, no wading in and having to go for the quick body dip!  The caravan had a telly with a dvd player so we had evening 'indoor' entertainment.

We went to Clacton Pier one day, spent some ££s on unlimited ride tickets, this meant me going on the roller coaster more than once! Ben got to enjoy some of the big rides as well, although not the roller coaster and one other ride where he was under the height restriction.  We also had fun in the simulator, hanging on to the handrail while the 'roller coaster' went every way possible.

On our last Friday, we headed out further afield and went to Walton.  The beach there was fab, two ladies run a very good priced beach cafe, tea at only 90p and a decent sized burger for £2.00.

A fantastic array of beach huts!

In the hopes of winning a competition to somewhere that requires plane travel, I'm entering my post in the competion, wishing myself some luck!!

Nearly forgot, I have a stockpile growing of cards.  My next craft fair is coming up shortly so I am busy cardmaking!  I'm making a lot of Christmas ones at the moment, although I have to pop in a non-Christmas one into the mixing bowl to keep me sane!
