winter wonderland

PCB have been on tour again! This time it was our annual trip to the fantastic Winter Wonderland at Center Parcs (Sherwood Forest).

I used to go to Center Parcs as a child – I have such good memories of those holidays and I wanted B to have the same.

At this time of year it’s not just about swimming in the subtropical paradise swimming pool (although that did happen every day!); it’s also the time of year that they transform the resort into a magical christmassy retreat.

Our four night break was perfect, crisp weather in the day (when you really appreciate the warm water that flows outside the subtropical paradise) and dark nights to really set off the lovely twinkly lights and snuggle by a log fire.

We had frequent squirrel visitors, enjoyed some midweek fireworks and sampled the entire Starbucks festive menu (eggnog latte is still my fave). B got to see Santa Claus … and was pleased to hear that he has a magic key to get into houses that don’t have chimneys (P’s doesn’t).

It makes me want to put my tree up now … but we are eyeball deep in flatpack building pre-moving day so that will have to wait!
