...it took me sooooo long to find out ...but I found out! Great Beatles track that one - here's a little clip to remind you that John Lennon was a far superior singer to Paul (sorry to all you Paul fans and my friend Barbara who will not have a bad word said against him).

Back to Butlins. I loved it! The kids loved it! Now I'm not an ambassador or anything like that even though I do get 16,000 hits a month and ranked 282 out of 10,000 blogs still I'm not bitter Butlins... In fairness, I never applied. I digress. I haven't been given free tickets but I'm going to give Butlins a shout out in any event. Firstly, a mum at pre-school got me thinking about going there for the day. She is your a typical middle class mum - ballet, swim lessons, worrying about high school already when her child is in reception, areas matter, Daily Mail matters and a vote for David Cameron is as standard. You get the picture. So if she was raving about Butlins then it had to be good. Basically if you pre-book out of term time you get a 25% discount and in term time its 15%. Check them out here for day passes. So it cost me just shy of £53 to take myself and my three to Butlins for the day. I had arranged to meet my friend and we were all very excited about visiting the unknown. I for one, was hoping that there wouldn't be insane queues that make me lose the will to live.
|Thankfully my little one didn't quite fancy this when he saw the steps - I was a tad worried the my bum would not fit the end part of this slide!! Maybe they should have a how wide are your thighs chart?!|

|I went over my 1,200 calories that day - was back to normal Thursday, Friday and today. I'll need to fit in some exercise tomorrow to make sure of a loss on Monday.|
|My youngest wasn't tall enough to sit with me on the dodgems but had great fun at the drive school - you had to pay a £1 for this|
