An exciting email landed in my inbox this morning, our first Butlins holiday is just 3 more sleeps away! Roo has been on countdown since the beginning of the month and with the schools breaking up for Half Term today she is even more excited.
I would love to tell you all that I’m super organised by being packed and ready to go, but I’m not! In fact I’m no where near ready to go. After taking a look at the what (not) to pack section the website I realise that I don’t need to pack everything including the kitchen sink. I do however I have a to do list for tomorrow…
Get Tigger’s haircut
Buy Roo some new canvas/summer shoes
Buy Tigger a new zip up hoodie
Send Mr Boo into loft to find our suitcase
Sort clothes into piles and make sure everything we need is clean and ironed
Make sure I have camera and phone chargers
Remember to pack my GHD’s (can’t live without those!)
Let me give you a little insight in to what our Butlins trip has instore for us:
We are staying in the Shoreline Hotel (home of Billy Bear!), in one of the Nelson’s Staterooms. Thankfully my initial worries about both Roo and Tigger sleeping in the bunk beds have subsided after they have slept in Roo’s bunk beds whilst the builder were here. I can however forsee some debate on what they will be watching on the TV, if Tigger gets his way it will be Thomas, Thomas and more Thomas the Tank Engine!

I’m loving that the room isn’t your standard box, the flowing curved window looks so inviting. I’m just hoping that it is warm enough to enjoy the balcony a little, I would love to catch a few sunsets whilst sitting out there.
What’s One Guide
The lovely Laura from Tired Mummy of Two has been filling my head full of all the wonderful things to see and do at Butlins. After checking out their what’s on guide for the half term week I don’t think we are going to stop. I’ve printed it off and highlighted like you do to the Radio Times at Christmas, making sure we don’t miss out on any of the fabulous shows and activities.
I’m not sure who is more excited the children or me and Mr Boo!
