Amy's school year were going away for four days at Osmington Bay PGL (A place for schools by the sea) The only way Amy could go was if I went with her? So not wanting to stay at the PGL place (bunk beds and Ging Gang Goolies are not for me) LOL So I found a nice hotel about a ten minutes drive away. Its Art Deco and a little worn around the edges but the room has been recently decorated and the restaurant is nice, food not bad and breakfast very good value at only £5 ($7.50). We arrived a day early so that Amy could get aquatinted with the place and as her school group was not arriving until late afternoon we had our arrival day and most of the next day to do our own thing.
Once we had settled in we went down to the beach the weather was good for a change and as it was a bank holiday the place was heaving, we found a cafe and had an OK lunch. Then after a short walk we went back to the hotel for a swim in the indoor pool. Then on to dinner Amy was going on for ice-cream but I was falling asleep in my dinner so it was back to the room and we were both asleep in minutes.
After breakfast on Tuesday we took a taxi into Weymouth and had a wander around. But by now the weather has started to change with cold gail force winds. Still we managed to have a look at the pretty seaport and did a bit of shopping. I slipped up somehow and brought gift for family (Sophie's birthday is on Saturday) and nothing for me!!!!
Then later in the afternoon I took Amy to PGL to meet up with her school friends. I then went back to the hotel for a few hours me time (read newspaper and watched TV) Collecting her at 8:30.
Wednesday Amy was up at 6am even though we did not need to be at PGL until 7:30am. Once I had handed her over I had 13 hours to myself. THIRTEEN HOURS!!!! What am I going to do? I'm away from home so no washing or housework! No decorating or doll room play! So read newspaper walked on the beach in the gals and now I'm tippy tapping on my lap top! TV is pretty boring as it's all election this election that I will be so happy when it's all over and normal TV is resumed. Amy had a wonderful day even managed to fire an arrow towards the target and did not kill anyone!
Thursday was another full day for Amy with me wandering the beach and hotel. I can't get WEBS to work right with Safari but managed to servive!!! Read a book called Rainbow Bridge about a lady and her cats. I found all mine amongset her mix of moggies. I went dwn to the beach and found some interesting rocks I also took a doll with me and had a little photo shoot.Amy had a disco in the evening and by the time I collected her she was dead on her feet.
On Friday I let her sleep in until 9 o'lock then we got dressed and had breakfast. After that I finished the packing and as the weather was now nice we went for a walk on the beach. We found some more interesting stones and then it was time to head home. We made good time and arrived home mid afternoon. Mum cooked dinner for us so now I just have to work my way through a huge pile of washing. My back is killing me big time I have so overdone the decorating. I don't think it helped that I had such a lot of driving to do and the bed was very soft. I like a firm mattress.
