Have you just had your own Royal Baby? If so do you fancy a free holiday/ Babymoon?
I recently stayed at Trevella Park, a very beautiful and very peaceful five-star camping and caravan park. Based on the north Cornwall coast, close to Crantock and Newquay, it's the perfect location for a UK break.
To help celebrate the very exciting arrival of Kate and William’s baby son, Trevella are offering families who gave birth on 22 July (the same day as Kate Middleton) a free three or four-day stay for their very own babymoon.
Open from 1 April to 31 October each year Trevella Park has a mixture of mobile home, pre-erected tents and touring pitches, plus a small number of privately owned holiday homes. It has been awarded the GOLD David Bellamy Conservation Awards for 14 years running and has been named as one of ‘Britain’s Best Parks’ by the AA, ‘Top Site of the Year’ by Caravan Magazine, one of the ‘Top 100 Family Parks’ in Practical Caravan, won ‘Britain in Bloom’ in 2010 and ‘Newquay in Bloom’ on several occasions.
Each break includes a two bedroom holiday home with travel cot and high chair, in a relaxed setting that will help harassed new parents fill up on fresh air, long walks, freshly caught seafood and even a spot of quiet time on the nearby sandy beach at Crantock.
Barry Templeman, Trevella Park manager says: “News of a new Royal Prince is wonderful, but we don’t want mums who gave birth at the same time to feel like their big day has been eclipsed, so we’re giving them the chance to crown their own celebration in style.
“Holiday parks are the perfect choice for a babymoon – parents have the freedom to come and go and eat and sleep at times that fit around their routine, which is the best way of relaxing when a newborn is bossing their day.”
I must admit I can wholeheartedly recommend. Trevella is a lovely, relaxing place to stay in a beautiful part of the Country. You won't be disappointed.
To claim your free Royal Baby short break all you need to do is call to book on: 01637 830 308.
Please note breaks can be taken between 2 September and 1 November 2013, and between 1 April to 30 June 2014, excluding May half term holidays. To confirm birth dates, callers will be asked to send a copy of their baby’s birth certificate.
This is definitely worth doing and you will have a wonderful time. Enjoy!
All this sunny weather is getting me excited, really excited. Next week we are off to Butlins again for a week at the seaside. This time we are off to Skegness. Somewhere I've never been before but Husband has fond childhood memories of.
This is going to be an extra special break for us as our little princess is going to be celebrating her first birthday whilst there. I cannot believe how quickly the year has gone and how grown up she is already. I just can't wait to see her face light up when she sees everything for the first time.
My big girls are both counting down the sleeps each day (6 left). They can't wait to see their favourites the Skyline Gang. Here they are getting a bit excited:
They are also hoping to see I Can Cook, looking forward to the circus and really want to have a donkey ride on the beach. The whole family are looking forward to Splash Waterworld, always a highlight for us. This one only opened this year so is all shiny and new and looks fantastic.
Seeing as we are there almost a week I'm really hoping to try out the spa too…fingers crossed I get to this time.
I have been fortunate enough to be a Butlins Ambassador for the past two years now and love it. This break will mean that our family have visited all three resorts and I'm looking forward to being able to compare them all for you.
Discovering I was pregnant for the third time was exciting but I was terrified about piling all the weight back on I had lost. Having been using a slim pod successfully I wanted to keep using it. I spoke to Sandra, then my useless GP, then Sandra again.
We then decided I should stop using drop 2 jean sizes and just use the maintain your weight one.
It was great, I felt great. No real sickness or cravings I felt healthy and ate healthily. I didn’t overeat at all. It was only at the end I started with the rice cakes and ice cubes, particularly healthy cravings though.
I had a big bump but she was all bump, I wasn’t huge everywhere. This was me a week after giving birth. Not looking too big. I was back in my size 12′s but not quite my jeans.
When she was 6 weeks I brought a juicer, craving fruit and vegetables and wanting to get fit.
Sadly though though that’s where it went wrong. Wearing comfy leggings, trousers or skirts hid the truth. Add in a sickly baby who reacts to everything Mum eats especially fruit and veg and the weight piled on. Where as I hadn’t been eating bread during pregnancy now I was. Where I hadn’t been eating chocolate this exhausted mummy thought she deserved Some once all three girls were asleep.
Right now in not feeling great:
Note to self: owning a slim pod will not make you skinny you have to listen to it. Remember it does work… It did before.
Every few months I like to write a letter to you girls that you can look back on when you are older. It's a way of me letting you know how much I love you and recording all those little memories and milestones before I forget.
I can't believe you are 6 months already and this is the first time I am writing one. To be honest Mummy found the whole juggling three children harder than she thought she would at the start. It's only now things are settling down and I have more time to do these sorts of things again.
You came into this world late but in a hurry, we didnt even make it to the hospital although we ended up there straight afterwards. Once home though you just slotted right in to the family. Now we can hardly remember life without you.
The first five months were tough for you as you were quite sick. The Doctors and health visitors weren't concerned as you were putting weight on but you screamed and squirmed for hours after feeding. I think to be honest you had a bit of reflux. You turned a huge corner at 5 months and became much more settled. Mummy still needs to avoid certain foods though like citrus fruit, garlic and nuts though as they set you off again. We are also being careful with weaning and not rushing to give you dairy etc. as they all start you off again.
Seeing as though so much has happened in 6 months I thought the best way to show you what you have been up to is through photos:
These days you are a gorgeous happy little girl, who giggles and smiles at everyone. You are very tickley especially around your tummy, which makes nappy changing quite funny. You giggle every time which is pretty cute.
Content to sit up in the Bumbo, stand up in your exersaucer or lie on the floor, you no longer have to be held all the time. You do like to keep an eye on everyone though and still love your cuddles. In fact, Your body temperature is much more like mine, cooler than Daddy's and your Sister's. You love being cuddled and snuggle right in especially if we wrap you in a blanket. You have a few faves. You also love being carried in the moby wrap.
You can't crawl yet but can roll over and over to get to where you want to. It takes a while but you can do it. You are also trying to sit up and like it if we prop you up in the feeding cushion. You really like to be sat up at the table though. That way you can see everyone and join in.
Your favourite time of the day is bath time. You like to share deep, bubbly ones with your Sisters but really prefer the really shallow ones you have by yourself. You use your legs to propel yourself from one end of the bath to the other, giggling and splashing all the way. It's very cute and I always end up soaked
You love watching your Sisters and I love watching the way you all interact with each other. They are very gentle with you, giving you kisses and cuddles and helping me by fetching nappies and stuff. When you smile and giggle at them your eyes light up…it's gorgeous.
You sleep pretty well at night (only waking once to burp usually) but I'm still working on the naps. It hasn't helped that you've been so windy. You go to sleep then wake up screaming before burping and then think its time to get up but we are getting there.
I can't believe 6 months have gone already, it's just flown by. Looking forward to recording millions of more memories, enjoying millions of cuddles and watching you grow and develop into a little girl.
It's been a lovely week in this house. We had a bit more snow which was lots of fun, we've spent time with family and friends and went to the usual groups too. Daisy is napping and sleeping better and we are all happier. Let's hope it continues:
20. ' Ready to play' – Daddy took his big girls out swimming and then to lunch whist I stayed home with a poorly Daisy. They enjoyed quality time with him.
21. 'Party Time' – My girls don't have sweets. Poppy had a few last time she went to a party & Rosie's never had them. Here they are enjoying sharing some after Poppy came back from a party tonight.
22. 'Fun with chalk' – We don't have much room here so the chalkboard and easel we have is hidden away. I picked these mini ones up today though for 99p each and the girls thought they were fab!
24. 'Tired Girl' – After a busy morning of a toddler group followed by Tumble Tots and a visit from Nanny, Rosie was exhausted!
25. 'New Coat' – Poppy loves her new warm coat and has insisted on wearing it to school this week. Perfect for scooting in.
26. 'Lizard Tongue' – Daisy is really enjoying her first tastes of food. Whenever, she sees food she sticks her little tongue out. It really makes me smile.
My favourite photo though has to be 23 – 'Mummy's Handmade Sleigh'. Not having a proper one, I improvised and on Wednesday made one from a tray and a dressing gown belt. The girls loved it! Here's Rosie and Daisy having a go.
