Good morning! I'm feeling a bit fragile this morning after overdoing it rather last night but not to worry, I don't have to drive anywhere or do anything if I don't want to. 😉 The coffee beside me on the table will sort me out, I am sure!
Yesterday was brilliant. I slightly changed my plans as I thought it would be rather a rush to have the swim early. Instead, I went to breakfast, then to the dance studio for the dance fitness class (which was absolutely brilliant) and had my swim after that.
As I'd had such an early start to the day, I had a chill time after lunch and a bit of a snooze before enjoying some quizzes and a wander around.
In the evening it was showtime and a game and was very good. Before I got here, I was expecting the team to give the show - lots of songs and dances, but yesterday it was Darren Day giving us an hour of stuff. I had heard of him before but that's all really. Imagine a chap with a bit of a tum, some unfortunately tight trousers and a pair of the most regrettable shiny shoes I have seen in a long while - and a fantastic voice!
And then it was up to bed!
Today (looking at the programme) starts with Wake Up, Work Out and Stretch (sounds a bit Hi De Hi to me) after breakfast and after a fifteen minute break there's something called 'Strictly Potters' which I am assuming is sort of salsa exercise. It says 'no partner necessary' so I'll give it a go and am looking forward to it.
There's more quizzes (which are very good fun although I am useless at them really) and I will probably have another swim this afternoon. The pool really is nice and there are loungers so I could spend some time relaxing between dips.
And in the evening, it is showtime again, the main one being something entitled 'Cool Britannia', commemorating British artists through the decades - people like Elton John, Queen, Ed Sheeran, etc. Sounds great.
Sadly, at some point, I will be packing what I can and getting it into the car so there's very little to do tomorrow morning. That's what I always do and I suspect I'm not the only one by a long shot.
Sorry about the lack of photos - there are so many people here, it has been impossible to photo without getting other people in close up. I'll see what I can do this afternoon.
Right - so it's time for a bath - the bath is so lovely and deep and I treated myself to a bath bomb from the little shop here so I will enjoy that. See you tomorrow and have a great Sunday xx
You do sound like you're enjoying yourself. Shame about the photos, but never mind. Have a lovely day and evening xxReplyDelete
It's brilliant. I've just come up o get changed after a couple of workouts and I think I'll go for a walk in the sunshine. I can take photos outside. :-) xxDelete
It all sounds wonderful, hope you are spared any more too tight trousered performers! :)))ReplyDelete
lol - it was the shoes that really got to me. xxDelete
Shiny shoes - so funny!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a really good program, travel back safe tomorrow.

Thanks, everyone. It's a pretty short journey, only around half an hour in good traffic. xxDelete
Just discovered your blog - and really enjoying readingReplyDelete
Have a lovely time away
Have you gone on your own for this trip ?
Hi, Siobhan, welcome. Yes, I'm on my own here. There's positives and negatives about it but I focus on the positives! :-)Delete
I saw Darren Day perform in a musical some years ago now ... no issue with shiny shoes but then he was probably dressed by the person in charge of the wardrobe! It sounds like you are having a lovely time. Enjoy your walk in the sunshine and look forward to seeing the photos. xxReplyDelete
His has a good act, that's for sure, and a fine voice. xxDelete
I hope you have a great Sunday too!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Belinda. I did, it has been great! xxDelete
It sounds like you are having a lovely time. Darren Day gosh that name is a blast from the past, no wonder he had shiny shoes he wanted you all to look at his feet!!ReplyDelete
ROFL. To be fair, the trousers weren't disconcertingly tight, it really was just those shoes! xxDelete
Sounds like a very entertaining way to spend a weekend. Drive safe on your way home!ReplyDelete
I will - thanks, Chris. xxDelete
It really sounds like a fun time. Enjoy.ReplyDelete
It's been lovely, Jackie. Thank you. xxDelete
