We’re Back!

29 09 2008

Hi everybody! We’re back from our weekend break. We got back yesterday, but I was too busy preparing English coursework to post. What did we do? I’ll tell you!

We went to Warmwell holiday park, near Weymouth, and stayed in a nice little wooden lodge. We were supposed to have a two bedroom lodge, but luckily we were upgraded to a three bedroom, so I didn’t have to sleep in the same room as Harry. When we arrived on Friday, we wandered round before checking in and dumping our stuff in the lodge.

Harry then got changed ready for his skiing lesson at 2 o’clock. It wasn’t real skiing, mind, it was a dry slope. Anyway, he had a half an hour lesson, during which he spent a lot of time sitting down after falling over. By the end, his trousers were absolutely soaking wet. Afterwards, we went back so Harry could get changed, then we went to the play park and then went mini bowling in the arcade. The bowling cheated – it only counted two out of most of the shots, even when we knocked over about eight! Next, we went to get a ready meal for tea, then we went to watch a very exciting (read: so boring I wanted to run under a bus) pantomime. About six other people attended. That’s how good it was.

On Saturday, we started off by going to the restaurant for breakfast. I had a breakfast bap, that is, a roll with bacon, sausage and egg, and a pot of tea. Afterwards, we drove into Weymouth town centre to buy something for lunch and a book to read. I got Along Came A Spider by James Patterson. After that, we went back to the holiday park and went swimming. There was also a giant chess set there, so I set about teaching Harry the basics. After lunch, I had an hour’s skiing session and Harry had another half an hour. Obviously, I didn’t fall over as much (*cough*) because I’m so much better! We then went to the roller rink, where I learnt to skate properly. In the evening, we stayed in the lodge to watch X-Factor and You’ve Been Framed to spare ourselves from the appalling “entertainment”. We also watched Mock the Week and Live At the Apollo.

Finally, on Sunday, we packed the stuff into the car, drove up and had breakfast. This time I had pancakes with syrup. Then, we went to play Pirate Golf (Arr!) and to the Sealife Centre. The Sealife was the worst part of the weekend – it’s so boring! “Yay, there’s a fish! Oh look, what’s that? Ah, I know. It’s another FISH!” Great fun, I don’t think. When we had finished, we piled into the car and drove down to Poole, where we went real bowling. I scored 124, 126 and 133, but only won the first time! For lunch we had All-You-Can-Eat-Oriental-Buffet, which was quite yummy! Then we had to drive home again.

On the way home, we saw a road sign that pointed to Piddlehinton! What a place to live! Over the weekend, we had seen some very random names, including Affpuddle, Puddletown, Briantspuddle (notice a theme?!) and Bloxworth!

So that was our weekend! I had fun! Do you think it sounded fun?

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have had no access to Mr Cheese’s Random Ramblings – sorry! I could have posted from my PSP, but I used a strong password generator to create my WordPress password so I couldn’t remember it to log in. In case you were wondering, I use 1Password to log in to websites where I have this situation.

Anyway, this week, several events have happened:

  • Tuesday, we went on a bike ride down the Cuckoo Trail from Polegate to Hailsham, stopping at the Common Pond in Hailsham for lunch.
  • Yesterday, we went bowling, and I lost one of the games to my seven-year-old brother, but beat him in the second game.
  • Today, we went to Pizza Hut for lunch, where we had an all-you-can-eat buffet, followed by banoffee pie for pudding – yum!
So it has been a fairly fun week, but unfortunately only a week today until school starts again… 😦
