I was up at the crack of a sparrow's cough again this morning - amazing to watch deer walk casually straight outside our villa.

The girls had hair braiding booked first thing, so I took them over to the sports centre where they were suitably pampered.






Following a walk in the sunshine round the lake we stopped off at a Center Parcs culinary icon - The Pancake House.

If you've never had a CP pancake then you truly haven't lived. These bad boys are BIG and more than enough to beat even Harry's capacity to eat!

Pictured is the all day breakfast - it really is a whole meal in a pancake. Delicious!















After lunch - and a little time for it to go down - it was time for the kids to do what is ominously known as The Drop.

Think 10 metre high tower and four ways to get down: zip wire, leap of faith, jump on a zip line or onto an airbag via free-fall!

The kids did all of them (they are braver than I was at their age). The whole experience took an hour, and the instructors were brilliant, especially for those in the group who felt more risk averse.

They were each given a badge at the end to commemorate the experience.

It must be a good experience when our two teenagers and nearly-teen walk away beaming from ear to ear!

We're back at the villa now enjoying a glass of wine before we head off to the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, and then it's a barbecue for tea.

This holiday lark is exhausting!



Tonight's repast was courtesy of Chef Blusteryday's barbecue kitchen.

The food was delicious. Apologies to our neighbours for setting the fire alarms off. Nuff said!



The sun is setting on a beautiful summer's evening, with the distant sound of other people's smoke alarms confirming we're not the only outdoor cooks tonight.

The weather forecast goes downhill again tomorrow (although not quite as apocalyptic as last weekend) and so we will carry on regardless
