Center parcs

Well, that just flew by.

It was everything I hoped, without the stress of normal everydays and just my husband and myself, I slept better and was able to do more.

I didn't do the trike but maybe next time, may even work up to getting behind the wheel again, just for short trips, but it would be good if I could summon up the confidence even if I only go to the local swimming baths or supermarket, we'll see.

I did do lots of walking and swimming and even tried bowling, it wasn't perfect but it was ok, I can do it.

Have to try lots more that I thought I may not be able to do, I've probably been frightened of failing as much as not being able to do things.

We paid for a "dine and spa" at the spa and had 4 hours of their spa experience including outdoor heated pool for swimming and it included a plate of antipasti and glass of prosecco, I'm easily pleased aren't I?

Now, back down to earth, must keep up the swimming and start some regular exercise.

Anyhow, we've agreed we must do this more often, seeing that is believing once work gets a hold again.

Let's hope I can keep up the momentum

Love Janetxxxxxx

Sounds great! I'm really pleased you had such a good time, you obviously needed it. Nice relaxing time, batteries recharged, smiley face, perfect!


I love centre parcs, it's almost like a protected colony t live in. We love to go as a family. Always relaxing for me and full of activity for the kids.

I loved the spa day I had with my daughter, was a bit odd to begin with but I slept so well afterwards.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, reading this makes me want to head back.....this afternoon would be nice!


We go every year and have been going for at least 15 years but this time it was without family so we managed one of their apartments, fantastic, all the comforts of home plus the added benefits of walks and swimming, everything you could wish for on your doorstep, and peace and quiet, bliss xxxxx


So glad you had a good time . Me and hubby going on coach trip to Scotland in April so I hoping to keep well for that x


Fantastic, I find when I'm out and about I feel much better, hope that works for you too xxxx
