Yesterday there was a Tree Top Trek – today there wasn’t – thank goodness!
There was A LOT of walking (but that’s good for the Fitbit challenge I’m in – where my little sister is in marathon training and so the usual winner!) and also quite a lot of time spent in the ‘Subtropical Swimming Paradise’.
To be honest I would question all of the words used in that description.
I fear ‘Human Soup’ is a better description. At one point this afternoon the rapids were shut because someone had VOMMITED in the pool (I am seriously hoping it was a baby and not some adult who’d been on the Jagerbombs at lunchtime?!) But – they were shut for about an hour (I am assuming to give time for the sick to dissipate?!? I am hoping there are protocols / chlorine levels to ensure this is dealt with safely?!?)
I am pleased to report I saw no evidence of vom floating about – but plasters / hair / unidentified floating solid things were all witnessed!
The kids adore the rapids – and despite being 42 and a size 18, I threw myself down them too (thankfully not landing on too many people in the process!) I did, however, manage to flash most of Centerparcs after my boobs escaped after a particularly vigorous descent.
You will be pleased to hear there are no photos of today’s escapades!!
I also fear a rotator cuff injury and a mid back muscle issue – and all this despite the fact I only take responsibility for myself – with the older siblings (and spare one!) doing a sterling job with the little ones.
I also thought the pool water would be kill or cure for my horrific eczema – and at the moment it seems to be cure #winning
So no doubt there will be more
