Planning Our Haven Holiday

In early December John won an award at work, which I was super proud of him for. With his award he also won £100 of vouchers which we could have used in loads of different places. We could have been sensible and bought the new iron that we need, or a new lawnmower but instead we did something even better… we booked a holiday.

A Midweek Break At Center Parcs

For years and years I have wondered what the big deal was about Center Parcs. I’m 31 and it’s taken this long for me to finally get to experience it for myself. A couple of weeks ago me, John and Erin headed off for a midweek break at Center Parcs with my sister Natalie and her fiance Chris. We live in Norfolk so our nearest Center Parcs was Elvden Forest in Thetford which is only about an hour away by train. As we are a family that don’t drive we had to be pretty careful with how we packed. We had
