I didn't go to the thing in the evening. Dinner finished about 7:30 pm (ish) and there was a disco and buffet thing in the evening. I was going to go, but between the fact I'm not a big fan of discos (I love music but I also love being able to hear myself think) and the fact I wouldn't have wanted much to eat (if anything) anyway because I was full from dinner I wasn't all that eager to go. Besides, I knew my Mam, my Dad and Wayne would want to stay really late and would probably enjoy themselves a lot more if they didn't have me there. So instead I went back to the hotel. It meant I missed out on the marshmallows and strawberries dipped in chocolate, but I was so full I wouldn't have eaten many anyway, and I wasn't going to go to a disco for a few hours just for a few marshmallows and strawberries dipped in chocolate. If I want some that badly I can buy some chocolate, melt it and dip marshmallows and strawberries in it at home.
No offense Carl and Rachel... But you know discos aren't my thing, and I was there for the important part. In fact, I think it was Carl who said I didn't have to go to the disco thing if I didn't want to.
Nan, Grandma and Grandad stayed behind too, bbut we all kept to our own rooms. I was going to go see Grandma and Grandad but was worried Grandad might be trying to sleep and I didn't want to disturb him. Besides, I got in to the TV, which Wayne put on for me in case I felt like watching it (told you he was being really nice all weekend)... LOL!
Mam, Dad and Wayne (especially Wayne) said they really enjoyed themselves though. :)
Grandma, Grandad and Wayne left on Sunday morning. Shortly after they left Mam, Dad, Nan and I went over to Carl and Rachel's place for a barbeque. Half a dozen of their friends were there too (I think more were meant to come, but we'd left before they did). And I FINALLY got to meet Tilly. Why do I say "Finally"? Because I've been hearing about Tilly for a good 5 & 1/2 years, but never met her. So on Sunday I finally got to meet her. I didn't get to talk to her long, but from what I could gather in the short time we talked, she's just as nice as Carl and Rachel make her out to be. Tilly is the person who brought Carl and Rachel together, if I'm not mistaken.
After the barbeque we went back to our hotel. We did consider just lounging around for the afternoon, but Nan (and I think Dad too) really wanted to see the gardens (since we had free access) so we just grabbed my camera and went in to have a look.
Here are a couple of pics Dad took of the gardens (I let him loose with my camera, lol).
And here are a couple of photos Dad took of me, Mam and Nan in the gardens
