Long weekend away

With my wedding date drawing closer it was time to spend a weekend away with my friends.  We chose Nottingham centerparcs being more central and ‘different’ to where we usually go when we have a weekend.

Centerparcs makes some effort to be green, but it could do a lot more.  But being green was the last thing on my mind during the ‘last few weeks of freedom’ celebration.  Fortunately my motley crew are a sympathetic bunch which meant that there was no enforced drinking, clubbing or similar.  It was quite, quite civilised and everyone agreed that it was one of the best weekends away they’d had – which was an added bonus.

That’s not to say we didn’t drink heavily, spend hours in a probably very eco-unfriendly hot tub (about 19hrs over the weekend) as well as taking full advantage of the sauna and steam room.  The swimming pool was great fun and we made a lot of peoples day as we took over 200 glow sticks with us which we handed out in the swimming pool after I’d made a proper fool of myself.  There were other things that happened over the course of the weekend which I’m not at liberty to divulge, but needless to say it’ll leave a lot of people mentally scared for life.

The weather did hold out until the last day – which rained heavily and has given my allotment the watering it required!
