The place was fully booked except for one luxury villa, so what the heck, we booked it anyway and my word was it nice.
Me, Amy, Luke, Kees, Silver Fox, Andy, big sis numbah 1 taking photo
It also had a steam room and sauna inside.
Now that's posh, but we are very much not :)
Check out our 'steel horses' parked outside
Just like the Hells Angels... Almost
The first day incorporated a new made-up game of:
"Phil has to squeeze a completely 'random' word into a conversation with Centre Parcs staff regardless of what it takes game"
The 'Random' word theme of choice from the others: Vehicles
1. Lifeboat (Andy's suggestion)
Completed! Much to the embarressment of my sister, I asked the car park attendant if there were any lifeboats up ahead before parking, to which he replied "err, no" after a short pause
2. J.C.B. (Sis's suggestion)
Completed! Asked the barmaid for one* in the middle of a drinks order, which rather confused her even though I explained to her it was a bit like a digger :0)
[* A JCB that is, tut]
3. Muck-Spreader (Kees's suggestion)
Completed! Asked the barman for this cocktail and he surprisingly enquired what it consisted of. I had to make it up on the spot - Vodka, Malibu, cream and a crushed up pack of M&Ms. He actually made it for me, tried it, liked it and said he was going to add it to the specials menu LOL!
Here is the quaffed 'Muck-Spreader'
After drinks we all went 10-pin bowling
Here's the Silver Fox in action sporting his A.S.B.O. t-shirt

My Jenga art :0)
Being a big kid must run in the family... Yeah big sis
I had to have a go at the jumping off a swing trick
I did start to feel quite ill after having a razz on yet another swing :]
After Kees and myself drew at standing in the cold plunge pool for the longest, I challenged her at standing under the outside cold shower back at the villa. I won :
Star Trek Captains. When your ship is in imminent danger of being destroyed, save a great deal of hassle by thinking of the last thing you could possibly try, which might just work, and do that first.
