My Holiday With Holly

Hello, Im back again and its been a while! I've been meaning to do this post for a while but I havent got round to doing it as I've been busy enjoying my summer holidays :)

On the 15th of July I went away on holiday to Norfolk with my best friend Holly and her family, it was wonderful and I had such a lovely time. We stayed in Sandringham Estate caravan site from the Sunday through to the Friday when we travelled back home (15th - 20th).

Sunday the 15th, DAY ONE:

We travelled to Sandringham today. We arrived at about half one after spending a few hours of the morning in the car. Once choosing a pitch (114) for the caravan we unpacked and sorted out the caravan. We were right next to the woods so we decided to go for a walk and explore. It was quite hot and sunny so Myself, Holly and her brother Ashley decided to have a water fight after our walk in the woods... I got soaked! It was alot of fun though :)

After we were all settled in and the evening had come around we went for a drive to Snettisham beach, it was very pebbly but the views were beautiful and I spent some time building sand castles with Holly and laughing as we went for a paddle. Once we were all worn out from playing on the beach we went to the amusements to have a go on the 2p slot machines! These are one of my favourite things to do when going on holiday, it really makes you feel that you're at the seaside. To top of the day we had a chip shop dinner which was SO yummy! Seaside chips really are the best kind.

Monday the 16th, DAY TWO:

Today the weather took a turn for the worse and it rained on and off throughout the day. So it gave us the perfect excuse to go and look round some shops and do abit of gift buying! we went to the factory shop (basically a large shop that sells toys, clothes, shoes, sweets and lots more!) then we went to the pet shop where we got to see lots of pretty fish and other reptiles such as little turtles, they were so cute! we also went to asda and budgens to a spot of food shopping. I purchased some lovely pastle pink winnie the pooh pj's, I fell in love with them as soon as I spotted them!

Tuseday the 17th, DAY THREE:

The weather today was alot better and we even saw some sun! We went to Sandringham and into the gift shop where I brought a couple of gifts for my mumma; including some country fudge and a heart shaped signed that reads 'keep calm and carry on'. After looking around the gift shop we went on a tour of the grounds that was carried out by a man in a tractor. It was very pretty in all the woodland areas :) Then, once the tour was over, we went to a lovely park that was made from wood. It was very magical and the kind of place you just expect little faries to come out from the bushes and start dancing around. Having worked up an appetite we then went to get some lunch and ice cream. Once lunch was over we went to the Lavander farm to have a look round, it was very pretty and peaceful and we ended up playing pooh sticks, a very entertaining game when played with various objects aswell as sticks. We also payed a visit to Bircham Windmill where we got feed animals from goats to cows to chickens.

Wednesday the 18th, DAY FOUR:

Sun, sun, sun! Today we had some lovely sunny intervals so we made the most of it and went to Hunstanton. We had a look round the many shops which is where i brought Holly a pretty little friendship bracelet. We also paid a visit to Hunstanton beach where Holly and Me attempted to make a sand castle (it failed badly!!!) We went down to the sea and had a splash and we also wrote things in the sand... We made a friend whilst on holiday called Tom, he's from Scotland and his family have a beach hut on this beach. Then we had a heavy downpour which lucky only lasted about to 15 minutes before the sun came out again, so we decided to go to Hunstanton fair and amusements, on the slot machines me and holly both won a few little nic naks which was nice. We played crazy golf and brought delicious doughnuts from a nearby stall. We then went back to the caravan for a couple of hours.

Now, today was a very special day as it was the 3 year anniversary since my dad died. At home my family were going to be letting off lots of light up balloons to mark this special day. My mumma wanted me to be apart of this so she gave me 2 balloons of my own to set off. So after another chip shop dinner, we went over to Snettisham beach to realese the balloons. It wasnt very windy on the beach as we were hoping so the balloons didnt float away as planned, instead they floated out into the distance carried by the waves. The sky was beautiful as it was just as the sun was setting so it made the perfect backdrop. Another thing I did was write messages on pebbles and throw them out into the sea.

Thursday the 19th, DAY FIVE:

Today we spent most of the day shopping in Kings Lynn but before that we had a picnic in Sandringham woods which was nice. I brought a few things including a pretty butterfly union jack top thats was just £6 and a white jumper with birds on that was just £3. After a long day shopping we went to pizza hut for dinner which was gorgeous. It rained on and off throughout the day. When we got back to the caravan Me, Holly and Ashley went into the woods so ashley could show us the den he had discovered, it was massive! we then spent the remainder of the day messing around in the woods with Tom and also in the park thats on the site. We also played bingo afterwards with Tom in our caravan :)

Friday the 20th, DAY SIX:

This was our last day in Norfolk so we packed up to go home, said goodbye to Tom and swapped details and left to go home. On the way back we stopped off at Mcdonalds for something to eat. I had a great time on holiday but missed my family alot so was glad when I was home.
