Friday, we are officially over half way through the holiday. We know Yelloh village like the back of our hand and have established favourite places to eat and drink.
Yesterday was a day of discovery, we went to the second pool. A new one that was added to the resort a little over a year ago.
It has Jacuzzi beds – need I say more. And kids under the age of 16 were not allowed in them. The bairns played on the slides whilst I sat in bubbles that were not of my own creation.
We ate dinner on the strip and paid a monstrous amount of money for the girls to have their hair fashioned into tiny braids. BB was itching for the style, begging in a desperate four year old manner. Once she was safely sitting on a stool between another woman’s thighs her pleas of please turned to yelps of pain as she bellowed through 14 individual plaits.
It took my eldest daughter six hours to work up the nerve to sit on the stool of pain to have her hair forced into the same beautifully anguished style.
She too confirmed the pain factor to be higher than anything she had ever encountered in her eight years on earth.
My son can be clueless at times.
We ate at the Orange Cafe last night. For anyone visiting the Al Fresco resort at Club Farret, this feast is a must. It is an all you can eat option, offering fresh crepes, burgers cooked to your liking, mussels by the tonne, beast sized prawns, and Italian and Mexican options.
All for 12 euros a head and under six eat free.
I fear they may have regretted the last offer as they watched four year old BB consume platter after platter of all that was on offer.
We were confined to a time limit for our meal last night. Which was a shame as I think I would still be dieting on seafood now if we didn’t have a prior engagement with Disney.
On the resort last night, the local entertainment show were performing in a Princess Spectacular – Club Farrets very own Disney Show.
It was during this hour long celebration of Disney that I discovered that my husband has never watched a Princess film. Eight years of being a father to two Disney obsessed twins. Four years of being DaDa to a kid who acts out a different Princess part everyday and he can’t tell his Cinders from his Elsa.
It was a shocking discovery, one that has made me question all that I know about the man I married.
When we return home it will be my task to change this fearful fact. The man will be forced to endure Frozen until he can identify each Prince and Princess in turn.
The kids loved the show as they have enjoyed each of the evenings entertainment. Plus BB thinks the real Elsa appeared on stage just for her birthday. So we are idolised as the best parents in the world simply for bringing her to France.
Easy parenting win!
