12 July: Centerparcs Longleat 32°C

12 July: The July Diaries (Centerparcs Longleat 32°C)


loves sticks!
he fills his stroller
with sticks.

what’s that?
what’s a pinecone?
is it an ice cream cone?
why not.

says he’s too hot today –
has taken all his clothes off,
and now we can’t find them.

he agrees to wear his Spider-Man undies.


says Yes Yes Yes I know…
to her glass of milk.

there’s a cow in her glass,
and she’s talking to it. obviously.

have a yellow one
it’s your favourite colour, Nana.
I thank her for banana.


discovered that they’re allowed to scream

on the waterslide
at the pool
they are both hoarse,

which they think sounds hysterically
funny when they laugh.

  1. We used to love taking daughter to Longleat for short breaks. Always lots to do but she was happiest just in the Dome.

    1. I think it’s the same. In the Plaza with the dome overhead? Perfect for smaller kids.

      1. y. They stopped the wave machine once because daughter pretended to be drowning!

        I can laugh about that. Now that she’s gone.


  2. I googled Centerparcs Longleat wow looks amazing ! You must have been tired though with two youngins in tow


    1. It was a wonderful place for kids. Mr Misky came home and tested positive for Covid. Not exactly the way he wanted to spend time with his grandchildren, isolating in the bedroom during heatwave.
