Thankfully we were able to escape for just one night (had planned for two but events overtook us) to Center Parcs with the Drewett’s and the Box’s to celebrate the three 40th birthdays of the summer season 🙂
On Friday the boys all went out and played Golf in the beautiful sunshine near Worksop – the first time any of us had played in over 7 years (over 10 for Simon)… It was a simply fantastic late morning and afternoon, following which Simon returned to Ossett and Lee and Ed head on to Center Parcs for the next stage of the celebrations. The girls all had a quiet morning and early afternoon soaking up the goodness that is Meadowhall before Vicky returned to Ossett and Caroline and Sharon headed to Center Parcs.
On Saturday morning, Vicky and SImon were able to join all at Center Parcs where the boys went out for some fun on the mountain bikes around Sherwood Pines and the girls enjoyed a lovely session in the SPA 🙂
The boys then nipped to the pub for a bite to eat and a well deserved cold beer or three. The food took over 50 minutes to arrive so the country club refunded us our meal cost AND supplied us with a free drink each – on the house – FOR THE WIN – GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
We enjoyed a lovely meal together on Saturday night and whiled away a few hours back at the villa recognising old TV show theme tunes – the sort of randomness that just happens sometimes 🙂
Great times with great friends celebrating a big year for three of us – thanks all for arranging and cheers 🙂
