Haggerston holidays

Day 1 travel day
Monday 14th July
Got up bright and early at 7am, to get me, kids and cats ready. We had breakfast and then I had my shower. John and boys got ready whilst I fed the cats and did my litter tray duty!
Mum and Dad are coming up to cat sit.
Rory (3yrs)

Dixie (also 3 yrs, a month younger than Rory but so much bigger, little and large!)

Once all ready, I said goodbye to cats and we set off at 9.30.:mickeywal

We stopped off for a toilet break at Bruer and then went to Perth for lunch. We had a nice meal at the Harvester. I had spit roasted chicken with veg and mashed potatoes, Ross and Owen had macaroni and John had a burger with cheese and bacon.

We then carried on with our journey and arrived at Haggerston Castle at 4pm. The boys were kept occupied with the sat nav the whole journey and unusually didn't keep on about how long to go!

It was really busy when we arrived but eventually we checked into our caravan. The caravan was lovely and big.

Excuse the headless photo of John but I only wanted to have a photo of the caravan!

I unpacked and John took the boys out for a walk. I of course had forgotten my foundation and I then made John take us to Berwick so I could get some. Typical, I even bought an extra bottle before we left..! We needed some supplies from tesco anyway so that was handy.

We had a chip shop tea, then we went to the bar. The star landers did the kids entertainment first then they sang. Later they did a show called Girls on Film which was good with songs from dirty dancing, pretty woman etc. The boys loved the arcade area which was huge and they especially enjoyed the Plants versus Zombies toy grabber machine. They enjoyed slushes and John and I enjoyed pints of Carling! :drinkbeer

We got back to the caravan at about 11.30.
A lovely first day

Haggerston holidays day 2 : Haggerston hideout

Tuesday 15th July

I woke up at 5.30 for some strange reason but luckily got back to sleep until 9. I was woken to the sound of the boys playing with their plants versus zombies toys and they were having great fun.

Plants versus zombies is a popular computer game and the boys have various soft toys of the characters.

It's amazing how their imagination works. We then had breakfast and I had my shower.

We then had a walk around the park and it was huge, we took a few wrong turns as it was difficult to navigate around!

We went to the park and the kids enjoyed playing for a while

This was popular

Our caravan was in the Golf Village part of Haggerston and we were in the Belfry section, number 20. We went to a cafe nearby which was next to the mini golf course. It was called The Fairways. I had a cheese and red onion panini with salad, John had a panini too and also a bacon roll... greedy! The boys had a kids box with juice, ham sandwich, crisps and chocolate. It was very nice.

We then went to the entertainment complex and in the bar was a wrestling contest. Three rounds with the "goodie and baddie" wrestlers. They were good, the boys seemed to like it too.

We enjoyed a beer watching this and the boys had a slush.
After this we went back to the caravan and had a nice rest.
For tea we had a Papa Johns pizza which was lovely, John and I shared a large BBQ chicken pizza with potato wedges

Ross had chicken poppers and Owen a cheese and tomato pizza which they enjoyed.

Then we went to the bar in the evening and the boys had great fun at the arcade playing different games and of course the grabbing toy machine!
These are photos I found on google... must of been taken when arcade shut as it was always mobbed!

We watched the entertainment for a while, had a few drinks then went back to caravan.
Another good day

We all had a lovely long lie until 9.30 which was very nice. After breakfast i showered the boys and then myself, mummy is always last!

We then drove to Holy Island. You have to drive over a road called a causeway which for part of the day is covered by the sea. You have to check the tide times before crossing. We were fine to go across until 4pm.

The island is a small community with houses, shops, a church, castle, cafes and a couple of hotels.

Unfortunately it was raining so we didn't venture from the car but it was nice to see it.

We then drove to Bambourgh Castle but didn't visit it as i don't think the boys would have been overly keen to have a tour round it!

We went to a town called Sea Houses which was lovely.

As you can see it was a dull day but it had stopped raining.

We went to a lovely fish restaurant called Pinnacles and John and i both had haddock and chips, the boys both had fish fingers and chips. It was very nice.
I spoke to a nice couple from Sunderland and they liked the boys matching outfits and said she used to dress her sons like that.

We had a walk to the harbour then played crazy golf which was fun.
It had a maritime theme with little boats and fishing nets.

Ross got 2 hole in ones and i got 3! I also managed to get a 15 at one particularly annoying hole!

John kept reminding me about the 15 but i reminded him of my 3 holes in one to only one for him. I even bet him later in in the holiday which i enjoyed! Ha ha

Ross and Owen played very well

Ross's hole in one

Owen with a 3

I liked this flowerbed boat

I then went to a gift shop and i got some presents.
We then went back to the caravan and also got a nice icecream from the icecream van in the park. We heard it's music and we had quite a trek to find it.

We had a chinese takeway and i had king prawn with cashew nuts and rice, john had a special chow mein and the boys shared chicken fried rice.

We then went to the bar and watched the entertainment fora while. We had an early night as we were to get up early to go to East Links Family Park the next day.
