As you know I was away for a bit. I was on holiday at Center Parks, the Sherwood one here in England. I had fun, didn't do much productive stuff mind you. But here we go...enjoy
I pop up to my grans with my little bro to get ready to leave the next day. We had packed and at least I had made sure I had all I need. My PSP (for music on the journey there), My crappy phone (to keep in contact with...anyone crazy enough to message me via mobile) and some clothes along with my drawing stuff. Once dinner was eaten we sat down and decided to play a game of cards. Me, my bro, My gran and aunt played till I left the game due to boredom. I can't say I am a fan of traditional entertainment anymore so I just sat and drew for a bit. It soon came to 10pm so my aunt and gran went to bed leaving me and my little bro to settle down in the front room to sleep. I had the sofa to sleep on and he had some makeshift bed on the floor. Although instead of sleeping we sat up and watched some family guy, I have to say I did enjoy watching it and there was one joke I won't soon forget XD
7am...I have to get up and get ready to leave...gah. Half naked and covered in flea bites from the cats I fall out of the bed itching. I don't know why but the fleas my grans cats pick up seem to prefer my blood to anything else in that house...weird. I got changed and managed to get into the car after a quick trip to the bathroom. it was a 2 hour journey of which I sat listening to various electro genre'd music including many variants of Dubstep and some not so bass-y songs from before my time. On the way there my little bro decided to wave around a full 500ml banana Yazoo. I knew what was going to happen so I held it to stop him. Being the complete Muppet he is he pulled on it which removed the crappy lid spilling a good 300ml of the contents upon my lap, PSP and bag...bugger!
Luckily for him I can hold my temper way better than my parents and just sat still. The PSP was fine though, I custom made it from 4 other PSP's that were all broken. I now have 3 working custom PSP's which not only look cool but are pretty indestructible. My one is no exception as it survived the soaking.
Once we finally got there we proceeded to leave our car and stuff to get our bikes. Me and my bro collected ours while my gran and aunt walked. they're not the strongest of people so biking would prove far to difficult at this stage. It was 10AM by this point and we had to wait till 3pm to put our bags in the cabin *sigh* So lets kill some time...swimming anyone?
The pool was awesome. I had never seen so many water related things in one small area. I hadn't even noticed that the main pool created large waves every 30 minute interval 0.0, Along with that there were 2 pipe tube flumes, 1 outdoor/ indoor rapids in which you just went down and got carried by the current down 30cm-1m waterfalls and last but not least an outdoor pipe in which you went down in a large family sized raft. It was pretty swell.
I think the best bit was there were no annoying children...best pool ever. Walking around with my swag I did notice that I did get a few looks from people, I say people because both genders were...well what seemed like they were...checking me out...I think thats the best way to put it. At least I kept a straight face and didn't get into anything with the flirts XD
We soon decide to walk around and see what was where and where was what. Pointless wandering soon led to 3pm to which me and my bro darted off to find our cabin whilst my gran and aunt got the car to unload at the cabin. Me being good with a map I soon found the cabin after several arguments with my brother as to whether I was going the right way. After settling we relaxed and ate our dinner. etc etc etc it soon came night time again and I went to sleep in my double bed. I had never slept in one before but I can't say I liked it much, too much room and no-one to share it with

Well, time to book stuff. First on the agenda was to go quad biking. I haven't been in about 5 years so I'm a little rusty. However I pick up thinks quickly so no problem. The course was big, several ditches, tight corners and a large gorge in which you go up and down. tilting side to side , forward and backwards was very common during the course as we dart in and out the course at high speeds on these rather beasty quad bikes. Lets just cut this short though and say I had a ton of fun.
Next was the tree top walking where there a several balance beams and ropes high up in the tree's of which you must climp along without falling. Sadly my bro went ahead of me so I had to wait till he had done 1 before I could do it. He was slow and very un-balanced whereas this being second nature to me I just kind of ran across the suspended planks and hanging ropes.
After getting back to the cabin after another swim we noticed the large amount of squirrels that were outside. I took tons of pictures and actually fed one from my hand which was rather nice ^-^
Another session of swimming and a bike around the place started the day. It was going to rain that day so I planned a day of bowling to keep us occupied. While we were there we played a few of the gambling machines. I usually go for the coin machines that have the moving shelves. As with all machines they are rigged either mechanically or in terms of programming. In the end I ended up coming out with £6 when I only entered with £1 which isn't too bad being as most people go in with money and come out with none XD
Back to the bowling alley we played 2 games, my aunt sat it out as she doesn't cope to well with the level of noise. 1st and 2nd game I came first with both my gran and brother coming 2nd and 3rd once each. They were very close games as I kept guttering the god damn ball. But it was rather fun and we just missed the rain on the way back...that's a lie we got absolutely drenched. Me being an optimist I enjoyed it nonetheless and raced back through it singing to myself.
Last day technically. So what will I be doing? well we didn't bother going swimming, We did far to much of that so instead ate out and went rock climbing. I can climb trees rather well so this should be a piece of cake....and it was (you though I was going to say it wasn't. Don't deny it) Racing my brother was really fun. However the guy who stands to the side said that we needed a re match. I should have seen this coming because when I went to climb further he was holding onto the strap on my harness. God damn cheater, but I wasn't going to let him better the better of me so I force my way up lifting me and the guy up until he let go XD I barely beat my brother to the top but when I got down the guy said how impressed he was that I managed to lift him. Then he went ahead and said how I had a good body for it....*sigh*....Y U flirt with me!?!?!?!!? I kind of hoped he was joking but a the same time I hoped he wasn't. You obviously see why I'm saying that as I don't want to be negative about my body.
We get back to the cabin again and have another dinner. Later we all go to our rooms and I sit and watch a bit of television, listening to music form the PSP and doing a bit of drawing. It got rather late and decided to knock it on the head and call it a day.
Needing to get up early as the bikes need returning before 10am and also we need to be gone by then. So a quick tidy up and cleaning before we leave. I charge my PSP for the journey home so I have some entertainment for the 2 hour car journey. We rush about getting everything done and leave to get the car again while I take the bikes back. When doing so the people there let me keep the bike locks which was very nice of them. Then again I suppose they need to keep getting new ones to stop thieves from cloning the keys therefore the old locks being useless.
That's about all I have to say. I cut this as short as possible so you only read the interesting bits so I probably left a lot out.
Hope you found this interesting ^-^
