My Weekly Round Up, Family Time

Hello its been two weeks since my last round-up (Ha ha I feel like I am at confession) its been a manic couple of weeks, I know, I am aways saying that! Our life is manic. But all those amazing memories are worth building. Life is never boring over here in the Christie household. Although the boys might say it’s exhausting.

We have has more blooming illness over here, Chris has been in bed for days with man flu, seriously I am the least sympathetic person I know for illness and have had a month of it between the 3 of them. And don’t even get me started on poorly voices. But he is quite ill, for a family that never gets ill its been quite a month.

A Weekend At Center Parcs

We spent last weekend wrapped up in the forest with some of our favourite friends at Center Parcs. It was a totally non blogging weekend, I love blogging as I travel, it’s something I would never moan about. However it was wonderful not constantly looking for a great shot, or worrying about pinning Joe down for photos as all he wanted to do was go on long bike rides with his bestie. As a result I don’t have to many photos.

Center Parks Lake

We spent a wonderful weekend going for long forest walks, enjoying the spa (although it was a bit hectic with a gang on lads, which you don’t want when you want to chill in you swimsuit)  drinking pink prosecco and candy floss ( I have a cocktail to share next week) and eating loads. Sometimes you just need a bit of family/friends time don’t you?

It feels odd travelling without Jack, I miss him so much when I am away, but he is growing up and planning his own activities now and had a fab weekend watching football with his friends.

Seeing Saturday Night Fever

I told you in my last round up I was not sure how much I would love Saturday Night Fever , well I was wrong! The new updated show is incredible, the dark parts of the movie are glossed over. Which I think for the show was the right choice. Resulting in a celebration of disco and all things retro.

The dancing and singing was on point, the cast were so talented. I honestly can’t describe the feeling a great show gives you. Its something everybody should experience.

Pretty New Underwear

I had a gorgeous delivery from Fantasie last week filled with spring coloured pretty underwear. This Annalise Camelia set is so pretty and the fit is just perfect, its incredible the difference having the correct bra size makes! I have been measured by so many companies who have never got it right. And since wearing Fantasie have found nothing fits as well. And I have tried other brands but always come back to Fantasie. I am so lucky to be gifted lingerie, but I also choose to buy it too.

Trying Out VA At Hollywood Bowl In Leeds

Joe and I visited the Hollywood Bowl in Leeds last night to check out the new Virtual Reality section. OMG its insane, I went with the opinion, that it will be fun for Joe attitude, thinking its a lovely family thing to do. But I loved it every bit as much as Joe. I have more to share next week, but you honestly forget everything logical when you have that headset on. It transforms you into totally different world, which is so much fun and took me a little by surprise.

Bowling in Leeds

We also got the time to have a game in the bowling alley, which is the coolest bowling alley we have ever been to with a retro restaurant and pool area too. Joe may have thrashed me at bowling! Chris could not make it because of his man flu, but Joe and I had the best time. In fact we might have to take Chris back to try it out!

Lots Of Snow

It makes me smile how giddy everyone gets about snow, I suppose we take it for granted as we get so much. But the last couple of weeks have produced some breathtaking moments. I can’t believe there was no snow at Center Parcs when we have had it either side of the trip!

Next Week

It’s a quiet week ahead, ha ha, as if that ever happens? No another busy one, but exciting. On Tuesday I am off to the Opera House to see Annie I am beyond excited Annie was one of my favourite films when I was younger. I say that about every film don’t I? I think I was always so drawn in by the magic of movies and love how they are translated into theatre even more.

We also have an exciting trip to Carden Park in Cheshire planned, Carden Park is more of a resort that a hotel so we are off to check out the family friendly facilities I can’t wait! It’s such a beautiful hotel, so stylish. And I just know Chris and Joe are going to love it.

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you are up to!
