So what was it like - well I could tell you that it was busy and hectic, that I managed bike riding all week, that my niece thinks a golf driving range is a great place to try her hockey skills, that my son enjoyed all the water based activities, that I fell off the teetotal wagon and had a hangover, that my sister arrived back in a taxi, that we lost my Mum and that 'on a corner' is not a great description when you are trying to find a certain person in the park! I could tell you that the drip drip ripple room in the Aqua Sana was my favourite, that my hubby despite nearing the half century mark was happiest at the top of the 9 metre (28 feet in old measurements) gladiator challenge, I could mention that paddle boarding can give you a fat lip (literally) but that you get an ice pop as 'treatment' I could mention that said 10 year old is now lining himself up for his own submersible and that hubby now wants to throw himself off the aerial adventure. I could tell you that I've got no sense of co-ordination but that when it comes to Zumba having an ass the size of Jupiter is sometimes a benefit as it makes up for the lack of co-ordination! I could tell you that I said we wouldn't do another 'week' again but that I changed my mind after a 3 hour spa! I could tell you that hubby's back wasn't up to foil fencing so dear sister stepped in despite not having seen any of the moves and that said 10 year old did try a couple of "Wii" moves on her - maybe allowing him to sword fight on that game before trying fencing for real wasn't the best of ideas! I could tell you that the Aqua Sana put security tags in their towels and that trying to do a spa experience without glasses on is no experience so you just have to take them off when you end up in the hottest spas. I could tell you that sharing waffles are gorgeous and that watching people capsize boats shouldn't be funny but it was, that stoats don't do drugs but are naturally crazy! That clipping a gully on the way back after a glass of wine can equal a sprained ankle. I could tell that in a choice between shreddies and crunchie nut cornflakes squirrels are completely into crunchy nuts, I could tell you that it is possible as an adult to 'flink off' with a box of shreddies I could tell you that we can't as a family apparently play tennis for toffee, mind you six people on one court, having never tried the game before and using all four balls that were in the pack at once probably was never going to be a great idea, having said that my Mum doesn't half manage to serve well when it comes to tennis! I could tell you that rabbits are into eating wholemeal burnt toast, that moorhens can actually get their beaks stuck in a crisp bread and that a certain squirrel had a thing about crisp bread and wasn't willing to share. I could tell you playing squash with a hangover isn't fun and that softball is even more dangerous in that scenario - you had to duck for cover. I could tell you alpha rythym music is actually very calming. I could tell you that hubby has a thing about starbucks latte with an extra shot and a spice aisle full of nutmeg and cinnamon. I could tell you that the sky is pink and the moon is made out of cheese and that if you really want to know what the week was like that from the above you have to pick out the actuals amongst the slightly over the top stories! I could also tell that I let hubby read this before posting to ask if I could get away with it and he had to walk away and not look at me when he said yes LMAO! - Ooh well posted it now!
Did it cost a fortune - nope it cost a fortune and a half but it was great fun,
So we had chalk drawn pictures in the villa
We have got a video of him - but in all honesty it just won't load up so you'll just have to take my word for it!
Wii pose at the ready - sorry I mean foil fencing at the ready!
Then said 10 year old with the new item for his eternal wish list!
and finally these two guys who are always part of my Rocking Your World Posts - you're both awesome as always!
So the question is in the long lists of "I could tell you's..." which ones led you down a deliberately wrong path? Answers on a postcard or even faster post a comment - I'd love to see which ones you think were little white lies LOL.
I also got a blog award whilst i was away but I'm already compiling a long list of things that you don't know about me...
